AKG has introduced the AKG C7 reference condenser vocal microphone, which they say provides studio-quality sound on stage, while preventing feedback and noise. Here's the story in their own words...

Featuring specially engineered circuitry and custom-designed components, the C7 provides clear, powerful sound, while preventing feedback, handling noise and pop noise. The rugged enclosure is engineered to withstand the most demanding live performance environments.

The C7 provides legendary AKG sound quality thanks to the custom-tuned super-cardioid condenser capsule. The AKG engineering team carefully blind tested each step of the development process, creating a mic with pristine clarity and a sparkling high end that lets the singer's voice shine through. In addition, the C7 handles extremely high SPL levels without distortion, ensuring that it can keep up with any vocal performance.

"The C7 microphone is ideal for vocalists seeking an even higher level of performance on stage,"
said Noel Larson, Retail Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. "While it delivers the pure, clear sound of a condenser microphone, it's designed to prevent feedback, handling and pop noise--making it as easy to use as its dynamic counterparts."

The C7 microphone is designed to solve many common problems musicians face on stage. First, the C7 prevents feedback--the nightmare of every stage performer--by delivering a perfect super-cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum.

Additionally, the C7 eliminates handling noise through an innovative, built-in mechano-pneumatic shock absorption system. The system features a unique rubber layer surrounding the capsule, ensuring that vibrations from the housing are not transferred to the capsule. AKG searched extensively to find the right rubber to meet the specification, ultimately working with a Viennese company to source a patented material with such strong absorptive properties that it lands completely flat when dropped.

Lastly, a multilayer protection system prevents unwanted pop noises. The protection system consists of three layers: the grill, a foam layer behind the grill and a layer of mesh atop the C7 capsule. This extensive system provides a clear, plosive-free vocal performance.

Thanks to a robust, zinc-alloy housing with a spring steel grill and 24-carat gold-plated capsule, the C7 microphone is built for durability and longevity.
