AKG DEBUTS HC 577 HEADSET

The new HC 577 is virtually non-detectable on stage or on camera and provides true water resistant durability.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – April 16, 2007 – Designed for flawless performance under dynamic conditions, AKG‘s HC 577 headset makes its U.S. debut at NAB 2007. Insensitive to moisture/perspiration and designed to withstand the rigors of stage performance while providing superb audio quality, the HC 577 performs flawlessly under the bright stage lights that speakers and actors are immersed in. Featuring an adjustable behind-the-neck headband and dual-ear temple pieces for extreme stability, the HC 577 provides excellent comfort and maneuverability to the end-user. The microphone boom further offers flexibility with an adjustable length, a flexible mic boom and choice of left or right-hand use.

Compatible with all standard AKG wireless systems, the HC 577 features patented dual-diaphragm technology to ensure pristine audio quality even under the most demanding live circumstances. Incorporating a CK77 omni-directional transducer, the HC 577 has undergone rigorous chemical testing to ensure resistance to an actor‘s make-up and creams, as well as alcohol and sweat. Additionally, the patented body design protects the dual-diaphragm transducer for maximum cable noise suppression.

“Many actors and presenters experience the hot lights of stage performance and frequently find themselves perspiring as a result,” explained Thomas Stubics, Product Manager, Installed Sound, AKG Acoustics. “At AKG, we call this ‘hot‘ usage of our products. The HC 577 is designed to address this issue and provide durable operation throughout any form of hot usage, easily withstanding moisture, perspiration and salts.”
