    Comments about AKG D5 Supercardioid Handheld Dynamic Microphone (2-Pack):

    I have used Shure SM-58's for years, but this AKG D5 gives me better overall sound. It's frequency response seems flatter across the upper range and its super cardioid pattern helps eliminate feedback. It also seems to cut through the mix without having to approach feedback levels. Great mic!

    Comments about AKG D5 Supercardioid Handheld Dynamic Microphone (2-Pack):

    I have a couple of these mics and found they're best used for vocals. I'd rate it between the SM57/58 and a Beta 87. Actually I'd compare it to a BETA 57. It has more depth in bass and crisper highs like a condenser but the ease of use (i.e. no phantom power needed) and solid feel of a dynamic. Its not feedback free, but its crisper and warmer than a 57/58. I tried it with horns but I didnt' like it. It peaked too much. Maybe a tenor sax or acoustic guitar in a low-mid level "Jazz" or recording setting. Its a great vocal mic and I keep it as a back up to my Beta-87
