Product Description

The design of the Audix OM-5 was in response to the market's demand for a super high-output mic with natural, undistorted sound. Unlike other brands using neodymium magnets, which results in unnatural sound and excessive feedback, the Audix OM-5 does not sacrifice sonic quality or feedback rejection to achieve its high levels of gain.

Features:

- Dynamic hypercardioid element
- High output with gentle presence rise and smooth proximity response
- VLM equipped offers unmatched noise and feedback rejection
- 48Hz to 19kHz frequency response
- 144db SPL handling
- Durable zinc alloy construction
- Electronically cut blast filter with black E-coat finish
- Comes with carry pouch and nylon mic clip

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Audix products.

5 out of 5 (38 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Forget the SM58 and get the OM-5"
Sound: I haven't used a lot of different microphones. Just an Audix OM-5 and a Shure sm58. The sm58 is very popular and considered the industry standard for live microphones but every time I've compared them in a live setting the Audix OM-5 produces a noticable better vocal sound. The sm58 was demoted to miking the guitar amplifier a long time ago. Feature: It plugs in, sounds great, and has low feedback response. What else are you expecting to find in a microphone? Quality: Mines been pretty beat up over the last few years. Hasn't affected the performance at all. Value: More expensive than my Shure sm58 but it was worth every penny. An extra fifty bucks isn't much for some you will still be using years down the road. Manufacturer Support: Don't really know because I've never needed support from the company. That rates a 10 in my book. The Wow Factor: Looks good. Rugged black steel construction. Overall: No need to plan on replacing this item because I would just buy another one (maybe I'd consider the OM-6 or OM-7). This microphone has been a trusty companion. I've never regretted buying it and never considered replacing it. There aren't too many pieces of equipment I can say that about.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent Microphone..."
Sound: I don't use the microphone, the other guy in the duo does. But the microphone does what it's supposed to do. I use a Bose L1 system and this microphone works well with the Bose without any feedback, etc. The vocalist likes the sound of his voice through it. Sounds just like his voice. No complaints. Feature: I'd have given it a 10 if it had a built-in on/off switch. But then again, since I don't actually use it... Ease of Use: Plug it in...use it. Quality: Quality looks to be first class. Value: Since it does what it's supposed to do I think it is good value for the money spent. Manufacturer Support: Don't know. Never had to deal with Audix support. Overall: It works great with the Bose L1. That's all that I'm concerned about. No need to replace it with anything else.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
