A tradition of excellence

In studio

Thanks to its supercardioid polar pattern, the D5 dynamic mic hears you, and only you.

Over sixty-five years ago, AKG began making microphones that were quickly embraced for their exceptional quality. Today, AKG's emphasis on continuous innovation keeps them in the forefront of microphone technology. If sound quality is your top priority, AKG microphones can make the difference between a good show and a great show.

Vocal power

The D5 dynamic microphone gives your vocals the power and clarity to soar above the mix, even on the loudest stage. Its supercardioid polar pattern ensures that it'll pick up your voice, and not sound next to you or behind you. The mic capsule is isolated by two shock mounts to reduce handling noise, and an integrated windscreen filters out wind and breath noise, giving your voice the presence it deserves.

Built like a tank

Live gigs can be rough on your equipment, but the D5's solid, zinc alloy die-cast body and spring-steel wire mesh grille shield the inner works against physical damage and high sound pressure levels. This mic may be sensitive, but it's no wimp!

    Why a dynamic mic?

    Dynamic microphones are engineered for the rigors of live performance and life on the road. Thanks to a very simple and rugged design concept that relies on few internal parts and no electronic components, they're tough, durable, and require no outboard power source to operate. Looking to outfit your church's PA system with vocal microphones? Need to mike your lead guitarist's cabinet for a big club gig? You'll find dynamic mics to fit the bill. If, however, you're looking for a recording microphone to capture sounds in exquisite detail, consider a condenser mic instead.

    Features

    Overview: The AKG D5 is a dynamic hand-held microphone designed for lead and backing vocals. It has a supercardioid polar pattern that provides the maximum gain before feedback. The D5 has an XLR connector, and comes with a padded storage pouch with a zippered closure and a stand adapter.

    Dual Shock Mount: The microphone capsule features a dual shock mount that eliminates any kind of mechanical noise. This prevents the microphone from picking up handling or cable noise on stage during live performances. In addition, an integrated windscreen significantly cuts down on wind, pops, and breath noises.

    Polar Pattern: The D5 has a frequency-independent supercardioid polar pattern that works well on stage. By suppressing sounds coming from behind, the microphone reduces the chance of feedback caused by on-stage monitors.

    Rugged Construction: The D5 features a rugged zinc alloy die-cast body. The transducer element is protected by a rugged front grill made of spring-steel wire mesh that is extremely resistant to deformation caused by drops or rough treatment.

    Specifications:

    • Frequency Range: 70 Hz to 20 kHz
    • Polar Pattern: Supercardioid
    • Sensitivity: 2.6 mV/Pa (-52 dBV re 1 V/Pa)
    • Max. SPL (1%/3% THD): 147 / 156 dB SPL
    • Impedance: ≤ 600 ohms
