The OM5 vocal dynamic microphone is made with an extremely tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which isolates the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage or in a studio. Used on stage, in studios and for broadcast applications, the OM5 hypercardioid microphone has a reputation for clarity, resistance to feedback and ability to handle SPLs in excess of 144 dB without distortion.The OM5 dynamic vocal microphone is naturally attenuated at 120 Hz to reduce boominess and handling noise. The mid-range is tailored to provide extra presence in the vocals allowing the vocalist to be easily heard through the main speakers as well as the monitors.


  • Clear and accurate vocal reproduction  
  • Handles high SPL without distortion  
  • Low handling noise  
  • Provides exceptional gain before feedback  
  • Provides maximum vocal isolation on stage  
  • Dent resistant spring steel grill
  • Includes carrying pouch and microphone clip

This mic rocks! Crystal clear audio!



Still a GREAT sound after all these years!!!


I had the pleasure of using this mic for a drummer vocal during the 2004-2005 Stanley Cup Finals, and may I say, it lived up to its word for HyperCardioid. The vocal was heard WAY above the drum kit and I had control of the whole mix. This mic has a bright, clear, crisp sound. Couple that with great sensitivity that can handle high sound pressure levels and this a great mic to have in one's arsenal of mics. I finally bought one (2020) and 15 years later, it STILL lives up to its name!



Exactly what I needed for home studio work


I needed a vocal mic to use at home for recording. I have a Blue Reactor (condenser), which I run through a Scarlett 2i2. Problem is, it's way too sensitive for the environment. It picks up everything within a mile. So I turned my attention to dynamic stage microphones. After listening to a dozen shootouts on YouTube, the OM5 seemed to have the most transparent, condenser-like sound, while at the same time, the noise rejection of a traditional dynamic mic. I've tried it on my own voice (mid-rangey male voice, somewhat thin) and a female vocalist with plenty of range. It just works. Rejects bad acoustics, within reason, but very transparent for a stage oriented mic. I used to own a Shure SM7B (in tandem with a Cloudlifter), and after comparing some old tracks, the OM5 was much cleaner and clearer. And for less than half the price. If you need a decent work horse vocal mic in a less than perfect project studio environment, the OM5 won't disappoint.
