AKG Perception 400 Condenser Microphone

All of AKG's knowledge about large condenser mics is distilled in the Perception 400. The Perception 400 has all the features you need for great studio sound: two large-diaphragm condenser capsules; omni, cardioid, and figure-8 selectable pickup patterns; a switchable -10dB pad; and a switchable 300Hz, 12dB-per-octave bass roll-off filter to minimize proximity effect...

Great Condenser Mic

Comments This mic, although relatively inexpensive, will serve its duties as a good vocal mic and/or acoustic mic. It has a nice blue color on the casing and it feels pretty heavy. This mic can do omni, figure 8 and cardoid at the flick of a switch. It also has a -10db pad and a bass roll off switch. All in all the mic is pretty versatile and is able to pick up pretty much anything around it. Although most interfaces these days will be able to provide phantom power, it's a good idea to pick up a decent mic pre in order to push this mic's capabilities to the max.

Liked about it I like the color on the casing
I like that it has options for different modes
It's cost effective
It's an AKG

Didn't like It requires phantom power
It needs to sit in a case and cannot be left out in a room because it'll get damaged
It's very heavy.
