Why We Love This Product!

Who Knew Killer Sound Could Be So Affordable?!

If you've only got a few hundred to spend, but you want the most microphone out of that buck... you're in the right place. The maker of some of the finest microphones available, AKG, put their collective mic know-how to work to create the Perception 420. The goal was to build a mic that beat the price/performance barrier, opening up pro quality to project and home studio owners all over the planet. Here she is... and what a beauty. The AKG Perception 420 is a large-diaphragm microphone that's perfect for recording just about anything you want or need to record. Its three selectable polar patters — cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-eight — make it possible to pull off all sorts of different recording techniques. Pick up a pair of AKG Perception 420 microphones and you can do a bunch of neat stereo-miking tricks, without chewing up too much of your budget.

Complete with the accessories you want and need, including a spider-type shockmount and an aluminum carrying case — the AKG Perception 420 brings supreme performance for the buck. You'll love it.
