A raft of new microphone models were announced by Harman-brand AKG at ISE 2017, from hands-free to handheld variations. For presentations, AKG has released the HC644 head-worn and LC617 lavalier microphones that both feature updated designs stated to be resistant to moisture while both are also compatible with all of the manufacturer’s bodypack transmitters.

The HC644 is a head-worn miniature condenser microphone that features a slim headband. The LC617 is a clip-on omnidirectional lavalier mic with rotating clip. Both microphones are stated to offer exceptional RF shielding and both house a MicroDot connector allows them to interface with most major wireless microphone systems. There are black and beige colour options to suit different clothes or skin tones.

In terms of new handheld microphone models, AKG has unveiled the P5i, the first microphone that can be automatically configured using the Harman Connect PA. At its core, the mic is essentially an AKG P5 dynamic vocal microphone with a supercardioid polar pattern with everything needed to work with the Connect PA system built-in underneath. At launch it is compatible with Soundcraft Ui12, Ui16, and Ui24R digital mixers, JBL PRX800W series speakers and dbx DI1 active direct box.

Finally, the C636 Master Reference in a handheld condenser microphone designed to reject feedback and handling noise though the use of uniform cardioid polar pattern and double shock suspension system. A multilayer protection system comprising a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached mesh layer on top is stated to prevent unwanted pop noises.
