The AKG D 5 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone with a new diaphragm technology called Laminate Varimotion. Thanks to this new technological breakthrough, the D 5 delivers unprecedented sound quality, characterized by smooth, extended response with airy, detailed highs along with the highest gain-before-feedback of any product in its class. The D 5 is the most roadworthy live sound mic AKG has ever built and features a double shock mount system to keep handling noise low, thick, dent-resistant spring steel grille and gold-plated XLR output connector for loss-free signal transfer. The D 5’s “nicely weighted” chassis is the heaviest in its class and the dark gray matte finish is modern and classy.
