Compared to the "industry standard" SM-58, the AKG D-5 has more clear and well-balanced sound. In other hand I think the D-5 is prone to feedback with less gain compared to SM-58. The construction is solid, no problems there.


Total rating

I'm not the loudest singer, but I found the clarity and depth of sound could even bring my whisperings into the mix! Very robust - I've been using this microphone for a couple of years and still looks as good as new.

SM58 beater

Total rating

I own 4 D5's and 4 SM58's amongst other mics, basically the SM58's only come out if requested or numbers of mics are required. The D5 being a supercardoid polar pattern this mic has around 6db extra gain before feedback when compared ro the cardoid SM58, it also has a smoother flatter response than the 58 and is well liked by all vocalists. It is also a versatile mic, I have used it on guitar cabs, cahon and even snares and hats - all with good results. To date the D5 appears to be as rugged as my 58's and the basket appears to be harder to dent. So all in all this is the 58 replacement, a better mic at a better price!
