AKG D5 Dynamic Microphone (Supercardioid)

The D5 professional dynamic vocal microphone for lead and backing vocals delivers a powerful sound even on the noisiest stage. Its frequency-independent supercardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback. The D5 stands for a crisp sound that cuts through every mix. The dual shock mount eliminates any kind of mechanical noise for trouble-free live use. The audience will hear the pristine sound of your voice! The D5 S has the same mechanical, electrical, and acoustic characteristics as the D5 and features a noiseless on/off switch.

The AKG D 5 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone. It has been designed specifically as a vocal microphone for rough onstage use. The wide frequency response of the D 5 slightly favors the midfrequency and treble regions to ensures good intelligibility of speech. The term "supercardioid polar response" means that the D 5 is most sensitive to sound arriving from in front of it, less sensitive to sound arriving from the sides and rear. This pickup pattern is virtually the same for all frequencies or, in other words, from the lowest to the highest notes ("frequency independent"). A shock mount on the transducer minimizes handling and cable noise. An integrated windscreen reduces pop, wind, and breath noise to a minimum. A rugged front grill made of spring-steel wire mesh that is extremely resistant to deformation and a sturdy zinc alloy die-cast body effectively protect the microphone and transducer element from damage on stage and on the road.

  • Patented laminated Varimotion™ diaphragm - For crisp sound that cuts through every mix
  • High feedback suppression with supercardioid polar pattern - For trouble-free use with on stage monitoring
  • Dual shock mount of microphone capsule - Eliminates any kind of handling noise
  • Integrated pop filter - For elimination of pops and wind noise
  • Spring-steel wire-mesh grille and rugged die-cast housing - Withstand every live performance
  • The microphone provides a balanced output on a 3-pin male XLR connector: Pin 1: ground Pin 2: hot Pin 3: return.
  • You can connect the microphone either to a balanced or an unbalanced microphone input.
  • To connect the microphone to a balanced input (XLR connector), use a commercial XLR cable.
  • To connect the microphone to an unbalanced microphone input (1/4" jack), use a cable with a female XLR connector and a 1/4" TS jack plug.
  • Please note that unbalanced cables may pick up interference from stray magnetic fields near power or lighting cables, electric motors, etc. like an antenna.
  • This may cause hum or similar noise when you use a cable that is longer than 16 feet (5 m).
