15 September 2009 — AKG announced the introduction of the new Perception Series of professional condenser microphones at the 2008 Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany. Designed for a wide range of applications used by ambitious hobby musicians as well as professional studios, the four new models included in the product launch provide superb audio quality and performance at a competitive price.

The new AKG Perception Series includes the P 120, P 170, P 220 and P 420 – each offering a 20 dB attenuation pad and a low cut filter for an even wider range of miking capabilities including vocals, brass instruments, electric guitar amps and drums across multiple market applications of studio recording, live sound and broadcast. Designed and engineered in Vienna, Austria, the entire Perception line offers AKG’s signature sound quality captured in a rugged precision-tooled zinc/aluminum alloy body with a dent-resistant stainless steel grille screen.

Perception P 120 is a general-purpose recording mic with a wide, extended frequency response. The 2/3-inch diaphragm condenser microphone offers users outstanding quality, performance and value, making it an ideal studio microphone for home recording and project studio use.

Perception P 170 is a 1/2-inch diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. Designed for acoustic instruments, drums and percussion, the small diaphragm true condenser microphone delivers high quality AKG sound in both live and studio applications.

Perception P 220 is a true one-inch diaphragm condenser microphone for studio recording and live sound applications on vocals, percussion, guitar, bass amps and acoustic instruments. The P 220 includes a switchable bass roll-off and a pre-attenuation pad, making it an ideal microphone for sources with high sound pressure levels up to 155 dB.

Perception P 420 is a multi-pattern large-diaphragm condenser microphone for professional studio recording of grand piano, woodwind and brass instruments as well as drums and percussion. Offering high sensitivity and 155 dB maximum SPL, the P 420 delivers a warm transparent sound quality in a selection of cardioid, omni-directional or figure-eight pickup patterns.

“AKG’s Perception microphones have built a strong following among musicians and engineers,” explained Thomas Stubics, Product Manager, AKG Acoustics. “Building on this prestigious reputation, we are proud to introduce the new line of Perception microphones with new features and outstanding value for the money.”
