    The OM5 cuts like no other mic. plugging it in was literally like a "blanket off the monitors" effect. just for fun at rehearsal yesterday, I plugged in someone's SM 58 and AB'd the two mics. my guitar player said of the 58 after hearing the OM5 after it: "what the ####? why would anyone use that mic?" the OM5 rejects feedback better than any other mic i have tested. i literally can point the mic at the monitors ten feet away and nothing. it has the least proximity effect of any mic i have used. this keeps parts from getting bassy. it takes some getting used to because you cannot work the mic. you have to keep your mouth on it or very very close to it (mouth the mic). best of all, it does not color my natural tone. in summation, the OM5 is superbly articulate. no nasty bassy mess. no feedback, ever. my delicate parts sound beautiful. my aggressive parts soar above the mix. i should mention that this mic is made for a frontman. your mouth has to stay on the mic so playing an instrument will make it difficult to use. also, this mic will sing what you put into it. meaning, if you have poor chops, the audience is going to hear it loud and clear (in this case, a 58 is a good mic because it will soften up many vocal shortcomings). if you have great top end, the OM5 makes a 58 look like a child's toy.

  • Great Buy

    As reviewed by Guitar Hero on 9/14/2006

    I bought this mic a few months ago and have used it alot. As it says, it does NOT distort or feedback at high sound pressure levels at all. It does not pop or pickup much unwanted noise which is great for recording. I have used it as a vocal as well as acoustic and amplifier mic. It is great for both. It rejects most noise that isn't right on it, so once again, GREAT for recording. I would recommend this to ANYONE.

  • Incredible Mic

    As reviewed by Brad on 3/14/2011

    I just bought one a couple of days ago. I was actually intending on buying a Shure Beta58 or Sm 58 when I walked into the store. A friend happened to be there and suggested I check out the Audix mics. Up to that point, I had never even heard of Audix. For many years and I've always used my Sm58 and was happy. I was skeptical at first with the explanation, but then he suggested we take the mics and plug them into a PA and compare. We took 4 mics, an sm58, Om2, Beta58 and the Om5. We used only one channel on the mixer in order to compare the mics equally. The difference was amazing. The Om2 sounded better than the Sm58 and the Om5 sounded better than the beta58. Both of the Audix mics had a more true natural sound than the Shures. Off axis sound rejection was far superior than the 58's. Mic handling was much quieter than the 58's. We screamed into the Audix''s and neither one distorted at all. Neither one of the Audix mics fed back on us in our tests. My old favorite, the Sm58 fed back the most. It was kind of a tough decision between the Om2 and Om5. Both mics sounded great. I chose the Om5 over the Om2 because the off axis sound rejection and quietness while handling the mic was a little better. I tried it thru my PA and was amazed at the difference between my old 58 and the Om5. Thru my speakers, I used to hear my foot steps on the wooden floor radiate thru the mic stand. Now, all is silent until I step up to the mic and sing. I will get a couple more Om5's and an Om2. I highly recommend these mics.
