Audix VX5 Premium Electret Condenser Vocal Microphone

The VX5 is a multi-purpose, professional vocal condenser microphone designed for live, studio, and broadcast applications. With an ability to duplicate studio-quality sound on stage, the VX5 has a smooth and accurate frequency response, resistance to feedback, and handles very high SPLs without distortion.

Designed with a tight and uniformly controlled super-cardioid polar pattern, the VX5 condenser vocal microphone helps isolate vocals from the rest of the stage. Other features are a 14 mm gold vapor diaphragm, an acoustically ported steel mesh grill with a multi-stage pop filter, and a -10 dB pad and bass roll-off filter. The VX5 will handle SPLs in excess of 140 dB (with pad and roll-off engaged) and will provide over 20 dB of ambient noise rejection on live stages.

In addition to vocal applications, the VX5 super-cardioid microphone is designed to capture instruments such as guitars, woodwinds, brasses, percussion toys, drum overheads, hi-hats, and pianos.

The VX5 requires 18 – 52 V phantom power.
