AKG ANNOUNCES PERCEPTION 150

Making its U.S. trade show debut at NAB 2007, the AKG Perception 150 produces highly precise sound for instrument and recording applications.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – April 16, 2007 – At NAB 2007, AKG will highlight the newest addition to its Perception Series of recording microphones – the Perception 150 professional small-diaphragm condenser microphone. Providing the same outstanding price/performance ratio as the entire AKG Perception family, the Perception 150 is the first in the series to be a front address model, providing yet another high quality option in recording, overhead miking and many live and broadcast applications.

With a cardioid polar pattern, the AKG Perception 150 microphone picks up less signal from the sides or rear (such as from monitor speakers or other instruments), making it well suited for recording as well as onstage use. The all-metal body aids in the rejection of RF interference, freeing the unit to be used along with wireless microphones or other communications equipment.

Also featured is a switchable pre-attenuation pad allowing users to increase headroom by 10 db, preventing the microphone‘s output level from overloading mixer input stages.

Offering class-leading performance, the Perception 150 is a half-inch diaphragm, externally biased condenser microphone that offers a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Perception 150 also ships with included stand adaptor for quick and simple use.

AKG‘s Perception Series of general-purpose condenser microphones consists of the Perception 100, 150, 200 and 400 models. The Perception 100, 200 and 400 models feature a true one-inch diaphragm, while the Perception 150 is a small, half-inch diaphragm mic. Every model in the Perception Series reflects AKG‘s rigorous quality standards and classic transparent sound, offering highly precise sound and an outstanding price/performance ratio to users in a variety of applications including recording, project studios, live sound and broadcast.
