AKG D5 Dynamic Vocal Microphone Reviews



I am in total agreement with all those 58 converts. I have sidelined my 58s and put the D5 on the front vocals. They have a super high gain before feedback and they just sound amazingly transparent on a small PA rig and and in monitors. I got my D5s for 33 quid a mic, so that would make them a third the price of a 58 with a sound comparable to a beta 57.
Sadly i am not 100 percent happy with them. I get asked for 58s more often because they have a better appearance (its a bloody hard argument trying to persuade vocalists that sound quality comes first). On a large rig (8k +) they are a little bit harsh in the upper mid (this is why on a small PA they sound great because they push the vocals to the front).
Don\'t expect a studio Large diaphragm because they are not tailored recording mics but do expect to be amazed (I have made many experienced FOH engineers pleasantly surprised when i line up D5s not 58s).



Having used SM58\'s for years, the AKG D5 is my new mic of choice. Crisp otne, excellent feed back rejection, solid as a rock - and half the price. Simply, an excellent all round dynamic mic.

AKG D5, best ever?

I recently purchased simply as an alternative to my many 58\'s and to start replacing my stock of more mature d3700\'s. However from its first use I was totally blown away by its staggering tone the ability to control it so well!
Indeed recently I lined it up with several new neumann (km 105\'s) on a quite good rig (MIDAS XL4, and HK Line aray) the difference between this £500 and £50 mic is minimal, several (urm) more experianced engineers were also equally impressed. I have since replaced my older mics completely and were it not for the idiots I often have to work for or hire to, would replace my 58\'s and perhaps neumanns!


Better than a 58!

I bought one of these on behalf of a client who specifically specced it in an installation contract. I was blown away by both the build quality and the sound quality. It sounds far more transparent than a 58 and brings a whole new layer to the traditional 58 sound. It doesnt sound different in character, just "thicker"... Needless to say I have already started using these myself and as my 58's die, they are being replaced slowly but surely with these.



I have always used Shure SM 58s as a a vocal mic, but when was stolen and needed to be replaced I read a few product reviews. The AKG is a great mic and in side by side tests appears to heve a little more punch and definition than the sm58. I also have an AKG C5 condenser version which is in a different league again. I highly recommend both of these mics.



This is a wicked addition to my hire rig - traqditionally I have alsways sent out 58's, but due to the amount of people swapping them for fakes, I had to look for a different model. I didn't think I would find anything, until the guys at dolphin reccomended this to me. I am blown away, not only does it sound better, but I think it might be tougher than a 58. I reckon you could put nails into plasterboard with this thing!

All I can say is well done Shure, you did it for me for years, but its time to mover over, the new king of the road is here!


Ace microphone for the money

I purchased one of these microphones as an alternative to the SM58, the mic you see virtually EVERYWHERE in all professional live situations. The signal is always crisp and clear, its reliable (in that it always works) and its a great price! highly recommended to anyone looking for a great quality live mic. just BUY IT!


D5 vocal mic

I have recently purchased the AKG D5 vocal mic, as a guitarist/singer this mic was recommended to me for its ability to pick up only the vocalist and not any unwanted drum or guitar frequencies and it does exactly that.
This mic also offers good clarity with a definite leaning towards boosting low end which so many mics lose.
It appears to be very well manufactured with a robust metal grill and solid body and comes with its own gig bag.
For the price and obvious quality it comes highly recommended.
