great quality for the mney
06.03.2016
Had this a couple of years now, this is a good vocal mic for the money.
Gives a faithful reproduction of with live vocals and very little problems with feedback despite sitting over a monitor frequently.
The switch is clearly useful as an alternative to desk muting, and as a traditional band performing tunes for dancing too it is very handy to switch it off to get rid of background noise and just turning it back on when singing. Still works well even after a couple of drops!
Definitely recommended.

My secret weapon
Jon C., 18.05.2013
I bought this D5s, as I needed a mic that would sound warm when singing through it, (quite low male vocal) and also take my Harmonica blowing up some blues (on a neck rack). I had to get a foam windshield to cope with the extra air flow from the Harp, but when I did, this mic is now my favourite live mic ever and has become my secret weapon. Since changing to AKG I have had several after show comments on how good my vocals were; Trust me, I never had this before... Thanks AKG; and now I'm saving up for the D7s.

Worth every penny
Erik77, 13.06.2015
This mic is a gem. It's cheap, it's pure quality, definitely beats the classic SM57 for me, which says a lot. AKG knows how to build microphones and this is the proof.
It's light, comes with case and clip - and the shape is really nice. It's a handsome fellow!

A proper vocal mic
Aki V., 20.01.2015
This a good additional vocal mic to your arsenal of vocal mics, I think it's a good investment to have a bit clearer and different sound in addition to some shures standard mics.
