The BBB D5 was manufactured in 2011 and discontinued in early 2014. It was an AKG D5 with custom enhancements designed for beatboxing on the stage or in the studio.
The D5 has a dual-layer 'varimotion' diaphragm that delivers a powerful sound. The unique laminated material damps high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which, in combination with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern, gives the BBB DFive an outstanding high gain before feedback.
It has a thick internal windscreen to prevent wind noise even in lip-contact use without altering the accurate high-frequency response. Handling noise is effectively eliminated by a dual shock mount.
The BBB DFive was used by the Beatbox Battle series of championships.
