AKG Lyra Large-Diaphragm USB Microphone

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. Simply plug Lyra into your PC, Mac, phone or tablet and you're ready to go.


Get a closer look at the AKG Lyra in this one-minute overview video:


Capture It All With Unmatched Sound Quality

For 70 years, the world's top recording studios and concert stages have relied on AKG microphones to craft today's biggest hits. AKG Lyra brings that legendary acoustic engineering to a versatile USB microphone that delivers the highest-quality audio in its class.

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.

Your Built-In Recording Engineer: AKG Adaptive Capsule Array

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:

Front: isolates your target source from distracting background noise by rejecting unwanted sounds at the microphone back and sides. It's perfect for recording or live-streaming spoken word, vocals, or close-miked instruments.

Front & Back: captures and blends together sound equally on all sides; ideal for face-to-face interviews and duets.

Tight Stereo: captures audio in true stereo. Because this setting provides discrete left and right audio, it provides great sound separation for side-by-side interviews or panel discussions, and is perfect for recording instruments like drums or piano.

Wide Stereo: captures audio with greater stereo separation, room ambience, and depth. This setting is ideal for situations where you want to capture sounds all around the mic, such as documentaries, field recordings, or spontaneous jam sessions.

Plug-and-Play Simplicity

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.

Built-In Headphone Controls

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.

Vintage-Modern Industrial Design

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.

Can I use Lyra with my Android or iOS mobile device?

Yes, but you will need an adapter. The Lyra has a USB-C output and comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable. Android mobile devices may require an OTG adapter cable to be used in conjunction with the included USB cable. iOS mobile devices may require an Apple Camera Adapter that can be used with the included USB cable.
