Description

The Perception P220 is a large-diaphragm true condenser microphone offering outstanding build quality and excellent value. Its many useful features and included accessories make this microphone uncommonly versatile. It delivers a classic warm, clear sound and conforms to the stringent standards defined for AKG recording products. These standards are based on AKG's six decades of experience in making microphones and on input from sound engineers around the world who use AKG products every day.

Its 1-inch large-diaphragm true condenser transducer brings AKG studio quality to the project studio as well as all other areas of recording and live sound applications. A switchable bass cut filter and preattenuation pad make it perfectly suited even for use on loud sound sources producing sound pressure levels up to 155 dB SPL. The rugged and roadworthy design makes it also a perfect choice for on-stage applications. The Perception 220 comes with a spider-type shock mount and a rugged metal case.

  1. Great sounding mic Review by Johnny5
    Overall Rating

    I use this mic for vocals and acoustic guitar. It sounds amazing for the price, though it helps to have a good mic preamp. It's warm and lush without getting boomy (though proximity effect is *always* an issue especially with condensers). Having a bass cut right on the mic will help you trim out some of that, though - and it also makes a world of difference with p-popping. When you don't have a low-frequency cut built into the mic, you have to bring in a lower overall signal to compensate for the big burst of air with p-popping. Since you can trim the low end, alot of that stays out of your signal chain and you can have hotter overall levels. not that you need them, the noise floor on this thing is so low as to be practically inaudible. Great mic. (Posted on 7/5/2011)
