Overview

With the AKG Perception 200 Condenser Mic, you get the extras that professionals need for demanding studio work, or for live music applications. Its large diaphragm delivers a full 20Hz-20kHz frequency response that will capture every nuance of any voice or instrument. It can be used in sound fields as high as 145dB, thanks to a switchable -10dB pre-attenuation pad. If you need to place the Perception 200 close to a chesty-voiced singer or a bass-heavy instrument, the mic has a low-frequency roll-off switch that engages a 12 dB-per-octave filter at 300Hz to minimize boominess. It comes with a full-size studio shock mount that eliminates mic stand vibration or footfalls from interfering with your recording and includes a hardshell road case to protect the mic from damage. Backed by AKG's generous 2-year parts and labor warranty.

Great Dynamics

By wordub

from Oro Valley, AZ

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I purchased this mic about a year ago and it is the all-around condenser here in the studio. Vocals and acoustic insturments sound great. At this price, I should buy another. Well balanced dynamics. Built to last.

VERY GOOD VALUE!

By BiggJohn93

from Nashville,TN

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I was using a MXL V67 for vocals on hip hop and rap songs, the sound was a little sketchy and it was time to buy a new mic. The AKG name precedes itself and to be honest for the price, I was a little skeptical. After the first take I was convinced that I robbed AKG! It is definately worth way more than the price I paid and I highly recommend this mic!

Good entry-level condenser for vocals

By brian1711

from Wickliffe, OH

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I recently bought this microphone because I was looking for a lower priced vocal condenser mic that would allow me to enter into the world of "real" microphones. When I got the mic and tried it out, I was impressed. It has a very clear sound and it adds a nice warmth to vocals. It picks up sound quite nicely and captures all of the emotion that you put into a song. The -10db switch is nice if you are in a loud room or have a loud vocalist. The shockmount included is excellent and the case it comes with is excellent looking and quite sturdy. The one downfall with this mic is that it does not allow you to change the directional pattern. Had this been a feature, it would have gotten all 5's.

good mic for beginners

By Hamma

from Boston,MA

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

The AKG perception 200 has a nice warm crisp sound when used with the proper cables and preamp/mixer. This mic is good for recording vocals and instruments such as the guitar. I've been developing my home studio for several years and continue to use my perception 200. The changeable freqeuncy settings on this mic are also very useful against distortion. When i get a better mic in the future i without a doubt will be going with an AKG product. I recommend the AKG perception 200 to all!

Sweet Mic

By The Essential Austin Cross

from Los Angeles

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I bought the Perception 200 on whim really cause i didnt wanna pay the extra for a 300 dollar sure. The mic is wonderful and suprised me as far as quality of product and sound. When you first get it, let it air out alittle tho, the packaging has a very strong glue or something in it that makes the mic and its box smell chemical-y for bout a month. This is an all purpose mic, i've used it for guitar amps, bass amps, pianos, vocals, trumpet, harmonica, acoustic guitar and an assortment of drums, its a must for the poor musician.

Great Mic for the Money

By Metal Falcon

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I bought the Perception 200 right when it came out and I was a little skeptical. Once I got it home I was immediately impressed by how great it sounded used on vocals. I then used it on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and pan pipes. Again, I was very happy with the results. In this price range I would say to go with the Perception 200!

A step up from the perception 100

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

The perception 200 is very similar to the perception 100, but it has suttle improvements. The mic has 2 more filters and a bass cutnfilter (which is great if you have a deep voice). The filter helps reduce the proximity effect and it does it well. The mic also comes with a shock mount which helps reduce making unwanted noise. The mic also comes with a sturdy metal case to carry it in. My guitarist uses this mic everyday and he never has a thing negative to say about it. I find it to be a suttle step up from the perception 100.

Awesome Mic that wont hurt your pockets

By SKTMFY

from Oceanside CA

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I bought this mic about 2 months ago, and I dont prefer any other. So far I've only used it for vocals, hip-hop and R&B, male and female. The clarity is amazing, use the filter selection switch to adjust your sound for females with a high pitched or raspy voice, or for males with that deep barry white sound. Overall this is one of the better, inexpensive mics I have used in my studio, I really see no reason to upgrade, I think this mic can hang with the more expensive ones for sure. The mic I purchased also came with a nice shock mount and a heavy duty carrying case that holds both the mount and the microphone.

WOW FACTOR! -my story:

By scrotobaggins

from Portland, OR

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I was in the process of recording the vocals with my band in our little home studio, when it became painfully obvious that I'd have to purchase a Large-Diaphragm Condenser Mic. After many agonizing months of double-shifts in the dish pit, the Top Ramen Diet, and denying myself all but the absolute essentials so I could afford the Digital Recording Studio I wanted, I was understandably reluctant to spend the $300 that my 'expert' said it would take in order to achieve the result I wanted. So...I did what any poor musician in my predicament would do: I heated up some Ramen, and Got on the Internet to resarch Condenser Mic's. Thats Where I came upon the AKG Perception 200: WOW- at just a little more than half the price of comperable Mic's, The Perception 200 surpassed even my 'expert's' expectations! The Perception 200 is really amazing! The sound quality is fantastic, and it comes with a sturdy shock mount and durable carrying case included in the price! Dollar-for-Dollar The Perception 200 is by far the best value in Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones. I give it my highest reccomendation!

Very versatile

By philip2755

from Athens, Ga.

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

Just bought the mic a week ago. First used it in a gymnasium for a speakers meeting. Worked great. Have used it in one recording session so far for vocals and actually on a lead guitar by placing it in front of the amp just for an experiment. I may do all my guitar recording this way now because it sounds better than an amp line out to me. Buy one and see!

Buy this to BEGIN!

By caver Man

from Manitou, CO

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I own this along with two DR-CX1's which have contributed to a few good sounding, home recorded CD's. Some sound engineer's are envious of the Perception 200's ability to recreate sound typically found on $900+ Mic's! I Highly recommend this for the beggining home studio! It exels at vocal's, amp mic, room, whatever! It's just so versital, with built-tough durability that a gigging musician like me needs! You do have to tighten the shock mount crazy tight to get it to stay up...but, whatever, it was in the case with it.

Amazing Product!

By Jfulton123

from Rochester, NY

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I bought this bad boy for my studio last night, it has proved to truely be one outstanding microphone. Vocals never sounded better through this mic, crystal clear and accurate. The mic is very solid and comes with a shockmount which easily attaches to a microphone stand. For $160, you get quite a bang for your buck.

Just Awesome

By Bgriffey from singsnap

from Harlan, Ky

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

I have always used a $50.00 Mic. I have also wondered why I didn't sound the same when I recorded myself singing. I decided to buy this Mic after reading these comments about it and I have to say that it has been the best thing I have spent money on. If you record get this Mic it has great reproduction. but if you're going to spend the money for the Mic then be sure to get the right cord for it (Mogami)is the cord I bought for it. I can't say enough about this Mic and as far as the shock mount, so far I have not had any problems even after dropping it when I was screwing it my stand.

Amazing Mic!

By jsimpso2

from Searcy, AR

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

The first time I visited guitar center's site, I saw this mic and it blew me away. You save so much more than you pay for and it's an awesome mic. The next time I went to Guitar Center, I bought it! And I'm very glad I did. When I heard my own voice in it, I couldn't believe how clear and "real" it sounded. I turned the volume up and I could listen the TV show that was playing in the next room as if it were playing right behind me! I use it all the time and I'm very happy with it. It'd be worth the money it's listed for, but with Guitar Center's price, there's no doubt you need to get this mic.

Great Solid Mic

By Kelly

from California

Comments about AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone:

Check it out, I actually got introduced to this mic a year ago at a radio interview I did in Portland. The 200 is the mic I used for the interview and what a crystal clear mic. I bought one for myself and I love it so much. It's got great sound for my acoustic and my vocals and it oughta handle amps pretty well with an SPL Max of 145db. Trust me, after buying the MXL 990 and the MXL 3000.... just skip them and get yourself an AKG Perception 200. It's awesome!
