Audix VX-5 Handles Sound Pressure Levels of 144 dB

Audix released the VX-5 handheld vocal condenser microphone, which it says is suitable for live, studio and broadcast applications.
It offers a frequency response of 40 Hz to 16.5 kHz +/- 3 dB, and features a 14 mm gold vapor diaphragm, supercardioid polar pattern -10 dB pad and bass roll-off filter.
Additionally, the VX-5 has a steel mesh grill screen and a satin black finish.
The VX-5 handles sound pressure levels of 144 dB (in the pad and roll-off position) without distortion and will provide more than 20 dB of ambient noise rejection for feedback control on live stages, the company says. It is suitable to capture acoustic instruments such as guitar, woodwinds and percussion, as well.
The model retails for $299. It comes with a mic stand adapter, carrying pouch and one-year warranty. Audix says a wireless version will be offered with the RAD360 wireless system, and will be available next year.
