World-famous AKG condenser sound quality When it comes to premium studio-quality sound, it's what's on the inside that counts. The C7 microphone features a custom-tuned supercardioid condenser capsule with hand-selected components, so your voice is reproduced with pristine clarity and sparkling highs. And the C7 handles incredibly high sound pressure levels, for maximum fidelity during your loudest performances. Open-space capsule technology During your performance, the only feedback you want is applause from the audience. The C7's innovative open-space capsule uses a specially designed inner-capsule holder and three window ports to reduce air turbulence and inner reflections at the backside of the capsule. This creates an extremely consistent supercardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum, for extraordinary feedback and spill rejection. Proprietary shock absorber suspension The C7 features a proprietary mechano-pneumatic shock absorber suspension that ensures handling noise won't clutter your sound. The capsule sits on top of a unique rubber insert, preventing vibrations from the housing from reaching the capsule. AKG searched extensively to find the right rubber to meet the specification, ultimately working with a Viennese company to source a material with exceptionally strong absorptive properties. The result is far superior to mics that feature extensive internal electronic filters to minimize handling noise. Studio sound, stage presence The AKG C7 reference handheld condenser microphone delivers premium studio-quality condenser sound and hassle-free operation on any stage. With pristine clarity and sparkling high end, the C7 allows lead and background vocals to shine through. And thanks to specially engineered circuitry and custom-designed components, C7 prevents feedback, spill, handling noise, and pop noise from interfering with your performance. No matter where you're performing, C7 delivers premium, worry-free vocal reproduction so you can focus on what really matters.
