AKG's P220 large-diaphragm condenser microphone is built for versatility. Whether capturing pristine vocals or miking loud brass sections, the P220 delivers. Its cardioid polar pattern focuses on sound directly in front, while rejecting noise from the sides and rear. For extra control, engage the switchable 20dB pad to prevent distortion from high sound pressure levels up to an incredible 155dB. A bass roll-off filter eliminates low-end rumble. Despite its sensitivity, the P220 is rugged enough for live performance thanks to a durable build and included shockmount which isolates the mic from mechanical noise and vibrations.

Capture Warmth and Clarity

The P220's large-diaphragm condenser capsule excels at capturing warm, clear sound from vocals and acoustic instruments. Its wide frequency range extends from 20Hz–20kHz, preserving nuance and natural tone. The P220's cardioid pattern reaches maximum sensitivity at the front, focusing on the desired sound source while ambient noise is rejected from the sides and rear.

Built-in Tools Provide Flexibility

For extra flexibility, the P220 includes a switchable 20dB attenuation pad and bass roll-off filter. Engage the pad when recording loud sources like drums or guitar amplifiers to prevent distortion. The roll-off filter reduces frequencies below 80Hz, eliminating unwanted low-end rumble from sources like air conditioning. Whether in a professional studio or project studio, the P220's built-in tools ensure optimal results in any situation.

Rugged and Roadworthy

Despite its condenser capsule, the P220 can handle high sound pressure levels up to 155dB, making it suitable for miking loud instruments on stage. Its durable build and included shockmount provide isolation, allowing the P220 to capture pristine sound even in live environments. The shockmount suspends the mic, preventing transmission of vibrations and handling noise. An aluminum carrying case protects the mic during transport and storage.

Complete Solution

With a shockmount and aluminum case included, the P220 provides a complete solution for studio and live use right out of the box. Simply attach the shockmount to a mic stand and connect the P220 to your interface or mixer to start recording. The protective case allows safe transport and storage, ensuring your investment is well-protected when not in use.
