Very good for the money

OriginalMarkyT, 31.05.2018
An inexpensive condenser mic that works really well. There is a little plastic cap which can be put on the capsule to alter frequency response. For our church we prefer to use this mic without the cap as it made some of the female vocals (soprano) slightly harsh on high notes.

Richter Condensersound at a great price!

chelijah, 09.04.2014
Was and am with my previous dynamic micros (Sennheiser E945 and E935) absolutely satisfied. I have the C5 deliberately worried from curiosity ... just to see times, as the difference is. The C5 is a cheap condenser, but in the same price as the above mentioned dynamic. After the first tests, however, I immediately realized that I would say good-bye to the dynamic world ... I've been on stage for almost 30 years, the last 20 years as a soloist. (Acoustic Guitar / Vocals) And I find that the AKG the language is even more intelligible, than the E945. Would say that - especially in the Singer / Songwritersachen, where no such loudness is required, a Condenser is clearly the better choice. And please ... I've compared here a cheap condenser with one of the best dynamic micros ....

Conclusion:
Very nice speech intelligibility with whispered as well as loud vocals
Very nice, warm bass
The lower middle range could be slightly more pronounced ... I like the E945 better ...

Yes ... after over 40ig gigs I can say, this micro like me extremely ..
And the price / performance ratio is right!
