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!

Akg c-5

Pierre680, 30.05.2011
The quality of manufacture is top, to the level expected for an AKG. The hand sounds on the body of the microphone are non-existent, which is quite incredible for a static. Simply unscrew the capsule to get an idea of ??the care taken to design: everything is suspended! The rendering is very good, with proximity effects far superior to those obtained with a dynamic. Attention (for the most distracted) to provide phantom power still because it is a real studio microphone, although usable on stage. Finally for the live, it will be better to use it in an environment as "clean" as possible (ear monitors, no big returns or amps that spit and risk rewinding in the AKG).
