The Audix OM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone is a concert level, professional vocal microphone designed for clear, accurate sound with slight mid-range boost. It is made with an extremely tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which isolates the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage or in a studio.

The Audix OM5 Handheld Dynamic Microphone is used on stage, in studios and for broadcast applications. The Audix OM5 hypercardioid microphone has a reputation for clarity, resistance to feedback and ability to handle SPLs in excess of 144 dB without distortion. The Audix OM5 is naturally attenuated at 120 Hz to reduce handling noise. The mid-range is tailored to provide extra presence in the vocals allowing the vocalist to be easily heard through the main speakers as well as the monitors.

What We Think


The Audix OM5 has been a long standing go-to recommendation for us here at Front End Audio. It's simply a great sounding vocal microphone which offers great clarity and a tailored low-end frequency response. It's perfect for getting great isolation and off-axis rejection without spending almost twice as much. The main thing about Audix mics are that they exhibit different "approach" characteristics than other mics. So, instead of a gradual increase in gain as you close the distance between mouth and mic, these mics like to be within 2-inches. So, get right up on the mic; don't be shy because you won't be heard. Obviously, this helps to attenuate off-axis sounds / stage bleed. The OM5 is a great first microphone for the serious performer.
