Dynamic Vocal Microphone
OM5
Dynamic Vocal Microphone
OVERVIEW
Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the OM5 is a dynamic vocal
microphone used for stage, studio, and broadcast applications. The OM5 is known for
its clarity, resistance to feedback, and ability to handle very high SPL (Sound Pressure
Levels) in excess of 144 dB without distortion..
The OM5 is characterized with an extremely tight and uniformly controlled
hypercardioid polar pattern which helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the
instruments on stage. With a wide frequency range of 48 Hz - 19 kHz, the OM5
employs a VLM™(Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural response, accurate sound
reproduction, and exceptional transient response.
The OM5 is naturally attenuated at 120 Hz to reduce boominess and handling noise.
The mid-range is tailored for presence allowing the vocalist to be more easily heard
in the mains as well as the monitors. The OM5 is comfortable to hold, durable, and
designed with high standards and tight tolerances.
The OM5 is manufactured with a precision die cast zinc alloy body, durable black
E-coat finish, dent resistant steel mesh grill and gold plated XLR connector.

Length

“mic level” input of your console, mixer or recording device. Please note that
your microphone does not require phantom power and will not be affected
in any way by phantom power should it be running simultaneously while the
microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone
from the PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system
turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud “popping” noise which could
seriously damage the speakers in the PA system.
DIMENSIONS (mm)
The OM5 is manufactured to exacting specs with roadworthy construction.
However, the capsule is highly sensitive and should be handled with care. Avoid
extreme temperatures and be sure to store your microphone in the pouch
provided when not in use. Moisture of any kind can adversely effect the sound
and performance of your microphone.
USER TIPS
The OM5 has an extremely tight pick-up pattern in order to help eliminate
FREQUENCY RESPONSE
sound from other instruments on stage from “bleeding” into the microphone.
For best results, it is important to sing directly into the mic at close proximity
(within 2 inches).
When using floor monitors, position the microphone so that it is parallel to the
floor. When using multiple microphones on a live performance stage, allow a
distance of 2-3 feet between mics to avoid phase issues.
