The AKG D870 Supercardioid Dynamic Mic combines all the essential features required in a live sound vocal microphone. Built in Vienna, Austria, you can feel the AKG D870 mic's European quality as soon as you pick it up. The AKG D870 is finished with a velvety soft-touch paint that makes the microphone comfortable while giving it a non-slip surface. The mic's chassis and grille are finished in a matte black that won't detract from the vocalist.

The D870 mic's capsule uses AKG's patented Varimotion design with a diaphragm of varying thickness that allows precise response shaping for high performance and extreme consistency. The sound quality is very smooth with a well-chosen presence peak that brings voices forward in the mix and increases intelligibility. The AKG D870 capsule's neodymium magnet delivers noticeably higher output than a standard dynamic microphone, so less gain is needed, improving dynamic range and lowering noise. The AKG microphone's supercardioid pickup pattern delivers higher gain-before-feedback than normal cardioid designs.

The AKG D870 mic's Doubleflex elastic suspension system lowers handling noise tremendously and the spring steel grille screen with an integrated windscreen delivers reliable control of pops and can easily handle the bump and grind of onstage use. AKG includes a nylon gig bag and a stand clamp, so the D870 mic is ready to go to the show right out of the box. As a further testament to the AKG D870 microphone's performance and quality, it's backed by a 2-year parts and labor warranty from AKG.
