A live performance vocal mic designed for singers in high-volume bands.

The D5 dynamic vocal microphone for lead and backing vocals delivers a powerful sound even on the noisiest stage. Its supercardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback. The D 5 stands for a crisp sound that cuts through every mix.

AKG made the first microphone diaphragm ever whose thickness varies across its diameter. The Laminated Varimotion diaphragm deep-drawing process allows the diaphragm itself to be fine-tuned with no extra tuning resonators, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance.

The dual shock mount eliminates any kind of mechanical noise for trouble-free live use. The audience will hear nothing but the pristine sound of your voice!

  • Great Mic

    As reviewed by Charles Vaughan on 3/26/2012

    I have been singing on a SHURE SM58 for a while now, but never got the clarity I wanted when everybody in the band was playing. I tried this mic this weekend and was blown away. I finally realized what I had been missing on my vocals. Well worth the switch!!!!

  • akg d 5

    As reviewed by mike on 10/20/2008

    i tried the shure sm 58 and it was no match for the akg d 5. i'm a singing drummer and this was my best mic ever. the clarity and crisp sound was awsome. in our band room the lead guitarist has a sure sm 58 and he told me there was no better because of it's popularity and wide use,but when he heard the akg d 5 even he was impressed with the new technology and sound of this mic. it's better than the sure sm 58 . you will not regret this buy.

  • lacks clarity

    As reviewed by hunter on 1/15/2011

    this is an ok mic. The freq response is pretty expansive but it lacks clarity in the mids-highs...somewhat "muddled". Don't misunderstand me, it's not a bad mic, i was just hoping for more. I'll stick with my atm410...ive been using it for almost two years and it blows the akg away. Overall, I would give the d5 2.5 stars if that was an option.
