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.
