Professional dynamic supercardioid vocal microphone

Cuts through the mix

The D5 professional dynamic vocal microphone for lead and backing vocals delivers a powerful sound even on the noisiest stage. Its frequency-independent supercardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback. The D5 stands for a crisp sound that cuts through every mix. The dual shock mount eliminates any kind of mechanical noise for trouble-free live use. The audience will hear the pristine sound of your voice! The D5 S has the same mechanical, electrical, and acoustic characteristics as the D5 and features a noiseless on/off switch.

What the Pro’s are Saying

Mix Magazine:

Mix Magazine:

“I liked the overall sound of the D5. It has a fairly neutral character with +4dB presence peaks around 5 kHz and 9 kHz. And if you want gain for miles, the D 5’s feedback suppression and hot neodymium output provides all you need to keep any vocal up front.”

The Audio Magazine:

The Audio Magazine:

“The AKG D5 provides a nice alternative to the typical dynamic handheld microphone providing a more balanced tonal spectrum than some rival designs. Excellent build quality, keen pricing, and pleasing ergonomics, well worth a look and listen.”
