Hervorragendes Mikro
Steeler, 05.11.2010
Bin auf dieses Mikro erst durch die Beratung der Thomann PA-Abteilung (danke!) aufmerksam geworden. Zum Glück! Ich setze es als Gesangsmikro im Bereich Singer/Songwriter mit einer Westerngitarre über einen Roland AC 60 ein und bin - obwohl notorisch kritisch - sehr angetan. Der Sound ist wunderbar, wie es sich für ein ordentliches Kondensatormikro gehört: luftig und klar, präzise und mit ordentlich Volumen/Bass (weshalb ich ein zuerst bestelltes Shure Beta 58 A zurückgeschickt hatte, da vergleichsweise muffig/dumpf).

Das Audix ist aber nicht nur im "theoretischen" Klang, sondern auch auch in der Praxis sehr angenehm zu nutzen: Das Mikro ist wirkungsvoll gegen Popp- und sonstige Gesangs-Störgeräusche abgeschirmt, so dass man eine große Bandbreite von Gesangspositionen nutzen kann (das ist ein wesentlicher Unterschied zum EV Blue Cardinal, dass ich auch ausprobiert hatte). Sehr nützlich auch die vorhandenen Einstellmöglichkeiten am Mikro.

Einziger *kleiner* Kritikpunkt von mir: Die mitgeliefert Klemme von Audix gibt dem schnurgeraden Mikrofon keinen 100% sicheren Halt, da sollte man sich live wohl lieber zusätzlich mit ein wenig Tape behelfen, um den worst case zu verhindern.

très bon micro
nixon, 04.05.2017
je l'utilise pour le chant en live, et le résultat est vraiment cool. le seul souci est qu'il a tendance à prendre pas mal de son du plateau lors des concert. Je l'utilise aussi pour mon home studio, pour le chant et guitares et là le VX5 fait vraiment le job.

Geheimtipp!
Thomas609, 11.05.2010
Wir haben das Mikro für unsere Sängerin gekauft und im Vergleich zum AKG C535EB und Sennheiser E865, sowie dem Neumann KMS 105 BK getestet. Im Studio haben wir mit diesen Mikros bei neutraler Einstellung Vergleichsaufnahmen gemacht.

Das AUDIX hat absolut überzeugt! Klare, transparente Stimme, keine übertriebenen Höhen oder Bässe - es war klanglich sehr sehr nahe am Neumann dran (was allerdings doppelt so teuer ist).
Absoluter Kauftipp für dieses Mikro! Aber es gilt wie bei jedem Mikro-Kauf: Zuerst mit der eigenen Stimme antesten.

dobry dzwiek
Oleksa, 15.12.2018
Bardzo naturalny i nie za zbyt ostry dzwiek, podobny do e 965, mikrofon nadaje sie dla lirycznego, balladowego, kameralnego wystepu ze wzgledu na bardzo dobre sprzezenie zwrotne
