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 Audix’s 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.

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.
