Overview

The D5S has the same mechanical, electrical, and acoustic characteristics as the D 5 and features a noiseless on/off switch. The D5S dynamic vocal microphone delivers a powerful sound even on the noisiest stage. A superb mic for lead and backing vocals. Its supercardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback. The mic stands for a crisp sound that cuts through every mix.

The thickness of the microphone's diaphragm 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!

    Reasonable Quality

    By 

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about AKG D5 S Supercardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone with On/Off Switch:

    A powerful but very bright sounding mic. I bought it mainly for male lead vocals thinking that the brightness of the mic would be a good match for bass heavy male lead vocals. Even after adjusting EQ, sound still borders on sharp but annoyingly flat. Not much depth. The mic also runs pretty hot so prone to instant feedback especially when near speakers or monitors so that creates additional challenges in a live environment. Overall not a bad mic but I still prefer the SM58 which is not as powerful (you have to crank it up) but a warmer sounding mic and easier to handle in a live setting.

    Great for vocals!!!

    By 

    from Newport Beach, CA

    Comments about AKG D5 S Supercardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone with On/Off Switch:

    This mike has a very good quality. It's built very tough and endures extreme situations. It makes you sound very clear. Though I think it's more suitable for female vocalists, because of its good grasp of high ends, I have never been disappointed by it. I am very happy for having bought it!!!
