The VX5 is characterized with a tight and uniformly controlled supercardioid polar pattern which helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage. With a wide frequency range of 40 Hz - 16.5 kHz, the VX5 has a very clean and natural sound with exceptional transient response. This mic requires 9 - 52 volts phantom power.

Other features include a 14 mm gold vapor diaphragm, an acoustically ported steel mesh grill with multi-stage pop filter and a -10 dB pad and bass roll-off filter. The VX5 will handle sound pressure levels 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 ideally suited to capture acoustic instruments such as guitar, woodwinds, brass, percussion toys, drum overheads, hi-hat and piano. It is a very versatile mic for home studio recording. The VX5 is well balanced, comfortable to hold, durable, and designed with very high standards and tight tolerances. The VX5 is manufactured with a precision die cast zinc alloy body, durable black E-coat finish and gold plated XLR connector.
