First produced in 1995, the OM5 dynamic vocal microphone has become highly regarded by artists and engineers for its ability to produce quality sound at very high sound pressure levels without distortion or feedback. The OM5 is naturally attenuated at 120 Hz to reduce boominess and handling noise. The mid-range is tailored for clarity and presence making it easier for the vocals to be heard both in the mains and monitors. By employing Audixs VLM (very low mass) capsule technology, the OM5 has exceptional transient response. An extremely tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid pattern helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage. The OM5 is comfortable to hold, durable, and manufactured with extremely tight tolerances. The result is an unparalleled consistency in sound and performance at a very competitive price.

- High-quality sound at very high SPLs without distorion or feedback. Naturally attenuated at 120Hz to reduce boominess and handling noise. Mid-range tailored for clarity and presence VLM (Very Low Mass) technology delivers outstanding transient response.
- The OM5 is known for its clarity, resistance to feedback and ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB without distortion.
- The OM5 is characterized with an extremely tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage.
- With a wide frequency range of 48 Hz - 19 kHz, the OM5 employs a VLM? (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural response, accurate sound reproduction and exceptional transient response.
