Ground-breaking, high-quality AKG large-diaphragm recording microphones have defined the international studio standard for decades. The new PERCEPTION 100 and PERCEPTION 200 microphones are based on AKG’s nealy six decades of experience and from input provided by sound engineers around the world that use AKG products every day.
PERCEPTION microphones represent a new generation of AKG microphones with individual features and outstanding sonic characteristics.
PERCEPTION microphones were designed by AKG's engineers in Vienna and are built in China under the rigorous control of AKG quality assurance. Therefore, these microphones conform to the stringent standards defined for AKG products and offer genuine AKG quality at high-value prices never seen before.
Both PERCEPTION models share many features in common: Rugged, die-cast metal housings, tasteful colours, nickel-plated grilles, clear placement of control elements, and rugged, gold-plated XLR connectors. PERCEPTION 100 and PERCEPTION 200 are true condenser cardioid microphones that require 48 V phantom power to deliver their classic warm and transparent sound.
PERCEPTION 200 is equipped with two additional filters: a switchable bass cut filter to reduce proximity effect, and a switchable –10dB pre-attenuation pad for use in high sound pressure level environments up to 145dB. The PERCEPTION 200 also comes with a deluxe spider-type shock-mount in a metal carrying case.
PERCEPTION microphones bring AKG studio-quality performance to all areas of recording, from project studios and live sound applications up to broadcast. Because of their exceptional robustness and high SPL capability, these microphones are also ideal for use in live and touring sound applications.
