The AKG C520 is a cardioid, condenser head-worn microphone with a comfortable, adjustable band that is designed to wrap around the neck. The lightweight design not only allows for comfortable long-term use, it keeps the microphone hidden from view, making it a suitable choice for performances, theater and more.

The cardioid polar pattern eliminates off-axis noise and feedback while the wide frequency response and sensitive capsule result in smooth, accurate vocal reproduction. The C520 features an adjustable gooseneck and the cable terminates to a standard XLR connection. The microphone is powered with 9 to 52 volts phantom power. The C520 is an ideal choice for presentations, performances, narration and more.

      Comments about AKG C520 Head-Worn Microphone:

      A good mike for drummers or anyone looking for freedom from a mike stand. I'm a drummer, so wireless is not a consideration. I used the Shure SM10A and found it was uncomfortable and not easy to adjust. The Crown 311A was OK, but I like the fit better with the AKG
