Overview

Whether you’re podcasting, making YouTube videos, live streaming, or recording your next hit, easily do it all and sound like a pro with the AKG Lyra Ultra HD, multimode USB microphone. For more than 70 years, the world’s greatest recordings and performances have been captured through AKG microphones; now it’s your turn. AKG Lyra brings that legendary acoustic engineering to a versatile USB microphone that delivers the highest-quality audio in its class. Simply plug Lyra into your PC, Mac, phone or tablet and you’re ready to go.

Inside, advanced circuitry delivers acoustically transparent, 4K-compatible, Ultra HD-grade, 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution. Lyra’s internal self-adjusting shock mount minimizes contact noise, and its built-in sound diffuser and AKG’s proprietary Internal Element Overload Prevention automatically reduce noise, eliminate pops and improve signal levels.

Whether you’re recording a podcast interview, a YouTube video voice-over, or your next Spotify single, Lyra’s innovative AKG Adaptive Capsule Array adapts to your performance to record pristine audio. Four versatile capture modes eliminate guesswork, so you can quickly dial in professional sound.

With AKG Lyra, you’ll be up and running in no time, no matter your experience level. There’s no assembly, no need for a separate audio interface, no fiddling with software settings—it just works, right out of the box. And Lyra is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices so you can quickly capture your ideas in the studio or on the go. From recording music in a digital audio workstation to live streaming on Twitch to shooting a YouTube video, using Lyra is as easy as plugging in a USB cable and pressing Go Live or Record.

When you’re speaking, singing or playing an instrument in the studio, you need to hear yourself and your backing tracks at the same time in order to perform your best. That’s why Lyra is equipped with a “zero-latency” headphone jack, which eliminates the short delay between when you perform into the microphone and when you hear yourself in the headphones, so you can stay focused on your performance.

Inspired by classic studio microphones like the legendary AKG C414, Lyra’s sleek design is sure to spark your creativity. Every function you need—including capture modes, volume levels and mute—is ergonomically positioned and easily accessed right on the mic so you can stay in the moment while always being in control. An integrated desktop stand with built-in cable management makes it easy to position the mic on your desktop. Lyra can also be mounted to a traditional mic stand or microphone boom arm for more flexibility in the studio.

Lyra works seamlessly with all major audio and video production software and online platforms, and includes Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software. Whether you’re going for a polished, modern sound or a classic vintage vibe, Lyra gives you everything you need to bring your ideas to life.
