AKG D5 Supercardioid Vocal Dynamic Handheld Microphone
Gearank High Notes
The AKG D5 was on our recommended list for Live Vocal Mics Under $100 from April 2020 until August 2021 when it was removed due to a price increase.
The D5 as a mic "designed to cut through the mix" while offering maximum feedback and handling noise suppression.
The Laminated Varimotion diaphragm, coupled with a dual internal shock mount, ensures the mic stays silent on stage even with lots of movement.
If you're looking for pristine vocals with a strong but controlled low end, excellent handling and feedback suppression for singers that don't cup mic globes, the AKG D5 is a reasonably priced pick.
