    Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

    Between the Shure SM58 and this, do not hesitate to spend the extra $60 on this one. I bought one of this Audix OM-5 mics and loved it so much that I end up getting another one for the backing vocals. It deals with feedback very well and it's much more clear than the Shure SM58. The only thing that Shure is better on is the resistance, if you drop it or bang it. But mics were not made to be dropped, so just be careful and the Audix will last you forever.

      Best Mic I've Owned

      By Andrew Seniuk

      from Rochester, NY

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      Okay, so I read all the reviews. I also own a few other mics. SM 57's, SM 58's, and an EV(forgot the exact model, and I don't have the mic with me) I had been using a Shure SM58 for practices and live performances. I'm in a stoner rock band, and we play pretty loud. I wanted something that would have less feedback, and cut through more. I purchased this mic, and used it at my next practice. Absolutely amazing! No feedback, tons of gain, and cuts right through the mix. A few days after we played a gig. They had a SM58 for me to use on the stage. I asked if we could use my mic, and they said yes. I used it, and it was awesome! I could hear my vocals perfectly, and so could the crowd. The sound guy said he was fooling around before we started playing, and he was able to turn the gain on his system all the way up without any feedback whatsoever. He told me he could of given me tons more volume if I needed it while we were playing. However, I didn't need it. Anyway, long story short. Get this mic. Awesome!!!

      Incredible Mic

      By Brad

      from Abita Springs, LA

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      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.

      My Search Ended...

      By MJD

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      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.

      The best freaking Mic ever!

      By General Farnirius Dog

      from Co. Springs Colorado

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      I've used this mic for some years now, as a performer and sound tech. From the perfomer point of view, it's construct is very sturdy. I've dropped it a couple of times and it didn't dent up as my Shure 58 did. Only my $300 condencer mic did better in reproducing my vocals. No distortion on high sound pressure levels and the only time it has feedbacked, was when it was pointed directly at the monitor. I have had vocalists come in front of the main stacks and no problem, lay on the floor...no problem, stand on tables..no problem...all voice and very minimum handling noise. For the money this is worth every penny. It's the AK-47 of professional microphones.

      Just as I stated. This is the greatest mic known to man and to nature. It's clarity and ability to pick up all sounds is incredible. No other mic even comes close! Trust me I've experimented.

      from Cranston, RI

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      I always used SM-58 mics for live performances. I was told by every soundman that they were the ONLY mics to use. I then switched to Electro-Voice and Thought that NO OTHER MIC Could Beat the sound. When I purchased 2 Audix OM-5 mics, I was told by a Friend and Sound Tech that This Mic Was BY FAR The Best Vocal Mic in it's class. I put it up against the SM-58 and the EV NDYM and there was a NIGHT and DAY Difference in Clarity, Feedback Resistance, Mid and Bass Response, Presence and Extreme Gain in Both Monitor and PA Levels. Since I switched to the Audix OM-5, my Sounman and Many Other Sound Techs Request that ALL the mics used for stage are Now AUDIX!!! This is a GREAT Mic!!! I Would Highly Recommend the Audix OM-5 to ANY Live Performers and Studio users. Audix mics are Very Well Tailored to TRUE VOCAL SOUND without handeling noises and unwanted background noise. Try One and Hear Your REAL VOCALS Cut Throught the Mix!!! Your Soundman and Your Audience WILL BE AMAZED!!!

      Great Buy

      By Guitar Hero

      from Hobart, IN

      Comments about Audix OM-5 Dynamic Microphone:

      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.
