Solid
Nikolay6708, 16.03.2021
Solid mic, one of my best mics. Use it very often when i lead worship at my Church! Solid made and looks nice, sound is decent for my voice. I'm not a professional singer, so can't tell a lot more about the specs but like the sound and i'm happy with the AKG's mics, have few of them and so far so good! Reccomend

Great sound and visually very good looking Mic
JBell, 11.02.2021
Sound clarity was perfect with no distortion even when shouting down the Mic. Nice to hold and not to heavy. We have used a lot of AKG products and would recommend their build quality and design.

Better than the SM-58
27.01.2016
A great vocal mic that suits a higher voice. The bass response from these mics is quite high which can enrich a higher voice. I wouldn't advise getting one if your voice is already quite bassy.

From my experience the cardioid pattern is a bit tighter than the SM-58 which means you will need to be facing directly into the mic more than an SM-58. This reduces the chances of feedback on a properly set up stage. However if you move out of the cardioid pattern your voice will lose volume & clarity quicker than you would with other mics with a larger cardioid pattern.

I have 2 of these mics and use them every weekend. They have never let me down. Have used them for recording vocals, guitars and snare with nice results as well.

A great price for a great mic.

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.
