Stylish and innovative.

The Audix VX5 is a hand-held vocal condenser microphone designed to handle a wide variety of live, studio and broadcast applications.

  • A condensor for bands that ROCk

    As reviewed by Heavy G on 11/20/2007

    Wow. I have to admit that I was skeptical about deploying a condensor on stage with my band (heavy pop/rock/blues)...obviously the Audix engineers have done some great things in their lineup (the I5, which also have, smokes an SM57 for the "swiss army mic" honors...the D6 is the finest kick drum mic for those "in the know"...the OM5/OM7 are tremendous live dynamics for high volume applications)...and now the VX5 (the little brother to the high end VX10) has officially blow me away, too. I have used a Beta 58 for at least 10 years now and was pretty pleased with it...but since I am singing more in the band...I wanted to see if there was something better out I " A / B'ed" the Beta 87, Beta 58, OM-7, EV-967 and the VX-5. The VX5 was easily the most balanced sounding, delivered with the most detail and clarity, the highest volume....well, you get the idea. I know that sound is very subjective, so all I would say in closing is...don't buy on reputation (Audis is a relatively unknown company compared to Shure, Neumann, EV, etc). Listen for yourself with truly open might be surprised...I sure was...I was determined to buy the Beta 87 (I had already made up my mind)...but my ears decided otherwise. Bravo, Audix...I am your biggest fan. Now if she will just hold up for 10 years like my Beta 58 (which I gave to my keyboard player to use). Rock on...

  • Amazing mic how sweet the sound.

    As reviewed by Everyday Rain on 2/18/2010

    I love this mic (Audix vx5), it cuts through the mix. My sound guy loves how natural it sounds. I've been using a Shure beta58 for the past 10 years (good mic). We have started recording live and I knew I needed a condenser mic to sit right in the mix. After trying a few other mic's, I tried the Audix; the warmth and presence was awesome for my voice. We use IEM's and I could tell right away it just sounded amazing to me. Plus it didn't break my budget.

    As reviewed by Carlos Lopez on 7/21/2010

    I was told that the Beta 87a was the best microphone after the the KSM9 Shure mic, but after comparing them, I was sold for the VX-5. I saw that it adds more crisp and more power to the high end and it gave me that clarity that I was looking for. We have an beta 87a for our Pastor, but I always like to stick to the VX-5. I would recommend the VX-5 over any dynamic or condencer microphone, except the KSM9. I am waiting for the wireless version of this. It has a -10 dB pad and a bass roll off that is perfect for the loud stage or the loud singer (I'm guilty!). It is lightweight and it truly cuts through the mix, I love this mic!
