High performance electret condenser for vocals & acoustic instruments
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 supercardioid polar pattern, the VX5 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 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.

  • Studio Sound on Stage

The VX5 ic a handheld condenser mic that sounds fantastic for live vocal mics. There is a well-controlled polar pattern that allows for use on stage without feedback issues common with condenser mics. There is a very clean and accurate response, which is a bit bright for speech but fills out nicely when singing. The grill has an integrated pop-filter, and the mic is quite responsive to high SPLs. The tone would be well-suited to acoustic guitar, tenor sax, or percussion instruments.
