Capture Pristine Audio With a 2/3" Diaphragm Capsule

The P120 features a 2/3" diaphragm true condenser capsule that delivers a clear, natural sound with precise sonic detail. Its cardioid polar pattern picks up audio in front of the mic while reducing unwanted noise from the sides and rear. The result is a focused, articulate reproduction of the sound source.

Flexibility for Any Application

Its bass roll-off switch reduces rumble, while a 20 dB pad prevents overloading, allowing you to capture just the right amount of signal for any application.

Rugged and Roadworthy

Despite its budget-friendly price, the P120 is built to withstand the rigors of studio and stage use. Its sturdy metal chassis and grilled capsule housing protect internal components from physical damage. Gold-plated XLR and jack connectors ensure signal integrity for balanced and unbalanced connections. Overall, the P120 delivers professional performance and premium AKG quality at an unbeatable value.
