AKG D230 overview

  • 1Description

The AKG Model D230 is a rugged dynamic microphone intended for general use in electronic news gathering (ENG) activities in radio and television. Its response has been tailored for maximum intelligibility of close-in speech, and its omnidirectional pattern is immune to proximity effects. The microphone has an integral windscreen and has been designed for very low handling noise. An internal hum compensation coil allows microphone use in environments where ac hum fields may be significant. The light-weight body is die cast metal and has a dark matte finish for minimum reflection or glare on television. The extra length shaft facilitates station flag placement.

    AKG D230 reviews

    D230 - Omni-Directional Handheld Dynamic Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. If you get in the habit of using an OMNIDIRECTIONAL mic for handheld interviews, you will eventually realize that many, many interviews are saved from the awful off-mic level dropout that very often occurs wirh any handheld cardiod or unidirectional style mic.
