AKG’s C7 condenser vocal mic brings the studio to the stage

Published:

‘Combining studio-quality sound while preventing feedback and noise’ is the description given by AKG when discussing its new C7 super-cardioid condenser microphone. The custom-tuned super-cardioid condenser capsule is reportedly capable of handling high SPL levels without distortion or feedback courtesy of the super-cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum.

Noise handling has been eliminated by creating a mechano-pneumatic shock absorption system, which features a rubber layer surrounding the capsule, ensuring that vibrations from the zinc alloy housing are not transferred to the gold plated capsule. A multi-layer protection system that prevents unwanted pop noises consists of three layers – the grille, a foam layer behind the spring steel grille and a layer of mesh atop the C7 capsule.

In other news, the manufacturer has also developed closed-back K872 reference headphones for critical recording, mixing, mastering and live sound engineering applications. Featuring customised components including a 53mm transducer, ultra-light open-mesh headband, slow-retention foam ear pads and a carrying case/stand, AKG describes the K872 as combining ‘ultra-detailed audio with comfort and portability’.

Developed from the K812 transducer, the 53mm transducer is the largest ever built by AKG and employs a 1.5 Tesla magnet system, the strongest available today. A copper covered aluminium voice coil extends the frequency range from 5Hz to 54kHz.
