Product Review

Bought to use for vlog dialog, and i couldn't be happier. The build quality is amazing and the sound quality is surprisingly rich in the mids. Akgp170> apollo pre> cla2a> 1176> fab fltr Q> BAM! If you purchase to use on vocals dont forget to switch the SPL switch down to -20 to avoid popping. Small condenser mics dont get enough credit for their versatility. These mics give that condenser shimmer with out sound brittle and make the audio 'pop'more than the sm57. I cant say its better then a sm57, (because every quality mic has areas it shines in) but its definitely on par overall. Great job AKG, and thanks AMS!
