This solidly built dynamic microphone features a cardioid pickup pattern with superior off-axis rejection (>23 dB) for high gain before feedback, along with a frequency response of 50 Hz to 16 kHz, SPL handling up to 140 dB, and a transformerless XLR-balanced design.
Audix's versatile i5 has a VLM (very low mass) Type B capsule, housed in a precision cast zinc-alloy case with a steel mesh grille that protects sensitive internal circuitry from random stick hits and such during heated performances. A unique probe cap design, which is not nearly as scary as it sounds, offers extra protection from accidental bumps or blatantly intentional pokes alike.
