This package includes the AKG Perception 420 dual large-diaphragm studio condenser mic and AKG K 44 headphones.

AKG Perception 420 condenser mic:
The AKG Perception 420 uses 2 back-to-back large-diaphragm capsules to create a flexible multi-pattern microphone capable of cardioid, omni, and figure-8 recording patterns. It features AKG's new design and logo style, True Condenser capsule technology, a switchable -20 dB preattenuation pad, and a switchable bass-cut filter to minimize noise and boominess. The condenser microphone is housed in a rugged chassis with a gold-plated XLR-type output. Spider-type shock mount and metal case included.

In 2005, AKG launched the Perception models 100 and 200. This was the beginning of a big success story. With Perception, AKG created a new series of microphones with legendary AKG sound and quality at an outstanding price/performance level. AKG's Perception Microphones are among the best wired condenser microphones for their price point.

Requires phantom power.

The AKG K 44 Stereo Headphones are a cost efficient solution for use in many various applications, including project studios and home recording. These closed-back, circumaural headphones are a true all-round performer with solid bass and clean highs at a value price. The AKG self-adjusting headband, leatherette ear pads and gimbal suspension ensure great comfort, for long-listening sessions. For professional and semi-professional users the K 44 is equipped with a 3.5/6.3 mm stereo adapter to suit any headphone amp. The K 44 headphones are extremely well made, and designed for ambitious and rugged use.
