AKG C520 Headworn Cardioid Condenser Vocal Microphone

With a flexible boom arm that can mount left or right, secure earhooks, and AKG's cardioid condenser capsule, this headworn mic is ideal for active singers.

Free your vocals with the AKG C520, a professional head-worn condenser microphone with maximum dynamic range for perfect vocal sound. This mic is an ideal choice for frontmen, singing keyboardists, drummers, guitarists and dancing performers needing a hands-free microphone.

The moisture shield prevents perspiration from penetrating into the transducer element, ensuring a high degree of humidity protection for the microphone. The C520 provides a transducer shock mount to reduce body noise to a minimum. Its cardioid polar pattern effectively rejects unwanted ambient noise. The microphone arm mounts on either the left or the right side of the headband.

Version C 520 L is for use with the B 29 L battery power supply, AKG WMS Series bodypack transmitters, or the MPA V L adapter for external phantom powering.
