Ideal for sitting at your desk and recording vocals in a room that lacks acoustic treatment, this B&H Kit includes the AKG P120 cardioid condenser microphone, closed-back studio monitor headphones, a studio isolation filter with a tabletop stand, a pop filter, and a balanced XLR microphone cable.

The P120 microphone features a 0.66" gold-sputtered diaphragm, high SPL handling, switchable low-cut filtering, and effective rejection of off-axis sound. Set up the isolation filter behind the mic to reduce room reflections and position the pop filter in front of the mic to control vocal plosives. The closed-back headphones produce a full-range frequency response and provide optimal isolation from ambient sound while remaining comfortable.

AKG P120 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

Whether you record vocals at home or mic up blaring guitar cabs and explosive drums on stage, the black AKG P120 condenser microphone is designed to give clear, distortion-free sound on a tight budget. This side-address mic sports a rugged all-metal body that not only bolsters durability, but also aids in rejecting RF interference from sources such as wireless systems. It comes with a stand adapter for straightforward mounting on your existing mic stand.

The low-mass 0.67" gold-sputtered diaphragm yields a detailed sound with a slight high-frequency rise above 10 kHz, and it is capable of handling SPLs up to 150 dB (-20 pad on) without audible distortion. A gentle low-cut filter at 300 Hz can be engaged, which helps reduce rumble, wind noise, or even bass buildup from up-close miking. Stage bleed and background noise are attenuated by the mic's cardioid polar pattern, which is most sensitive to sound in front of the microphone. Use a separately available XLR cable to connect the P120 to an XLR mic input that can supply 48V phantom power.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
This side-address microphone is most sensitive to sounds arriving from in front of it while picking up much less of sounds arriving from the sides or rear (from monitor speakers or neighboring instruments). This makes the microphone equally suited for recording and onstage use.
Gold-Sputtered Diaphragm
The 0.67" diaphragm—sized between the measurements of typical large and small diaphragms—is made of a plastic foil that is gold-sputtered on one side only to prevent shorting to the back electrode even at extremely high sound pressure levels.
All-Metal Body
The all-metal body adds to the rejection of RF interference so you can use the microphone near transmitter stations and along with wireless microphones or other communications equipment. The extremely rugged, heavy body and sturdy front grille protect the microphone from damage from tough handling on stage.
High Headroom and Minimum Distortion
Capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 150 dB without introducing perceptible distortion and built to resist high temperatures and humidity, the microphone will give excellent results in a wide range of applications.
Bass-Cut Filter
Selector 1 on the microphone front further reduces low-end distortion caused by footfall, wind noise, and air conditioning rumble. The filter also minimizes the proximity effect that close-in miking from less than 4" causes in any unidirectional microphone. The filter rolls off at 6 dB/octave from 300 Hz downward.
Switchable Pad
Selector 2 on the microphone front lets you increase the headroom by 20 dB for distortion-free recording up close. The pre-attenuation pad prevents the microphone's output level, particularly at low frequencies, from overloading the miniature transformers used in many mixer input stages, etc.
Connecting to Audio Equipment
The P120 uses a condenser transducer designed for 48V phantom powering from a source such as an external mic preamp, an audio interface, or a mixing console. It provides a balanced output on an XLR 3-pin male connector; use an XLR cable (available separately) to connect the microphone to a balanced XLR input with phantom power.

Auray RF-C12 Professional Desktop Isolation Filter (Gray)

The gray RF-C12 Professional Desktop Isolation Filter from Auray is a desktop solution that allows music producers, broadcasters, and podcasters to get better recordings by isolating a microphone from vibrations and sound reflections, especially when its used in a space that is less than ideal for capturing audio. The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter makes capturing clean, dry vocals or instruments more natural sounding with less sonic coloration.

The RF-C12 fits on a desk or tabletop and uses multi-layer acoustic treatment to absorb unwanted ambient noise and control acoustic reflections. So, if you're recording vocals, voiceovers, or podcasts in an untreated room with hard surfaces, the RF-CF20 provides advanced microphone isolation.

Microphone Isolation
Recording, broadcasting, or podcasting in rooms with little-to-no acoustic treatment can wash-out vocal or instrument audio recordings with echo reflections. The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter fits on your desk or tabletop and minimizes reflections of unwanted noise bouncing off hard surfaces from entering your microphone. Usually, expensive acoustic foam is required on walls for your room to sound dry. With this reflection filter, you capture what you want in your own room or workspace.
Multi-Layer Acoustic Treatment
Multiple layers of acoustic treatment help to isolate your vocal and instrument recordings. A thick layer of composite fiber surrounds your microphone and absorbs unwanted reflections as well as any noise coming in from the room. A layer of acoustic fabric and a molded-vented polymer shield help deaden and disperse sound waves, leaving you with clean and dry recordings with little to no coloration.
Adjustable Mic Depth
The RF-C12 allows the microphone depth to be adjusted so you can dial in the right amount of room ambience. Easily slide the microphone closer to the filter for less pickup of room noise or slide the microphone away to add space in your audio recording.
Filter Stand
The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter is mounted on its own stand. This allows you to place your filter and mic setup on a desk or tabletop, which is ideal for recording vocals, doing live podcasts, or broadcast applications. It's a portable option for doing recordings on the go. The isolation filter's height is adjustable from 7.25 to 9.1". (18.4 to 23 cm), and can accommodate all sizes—short or tall—to optimize mic placement when capturing audio.

Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 3.5mm TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

Mobile
The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.
Over-Ear Design
The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.
DJ Applications
The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.
Broadcast and Podcast
The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.
Swiveling and Rotating Earcups
If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.
10' Cable
A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.

what microphone stand would you request for this microphone?
Asked by: Paula
The AKG P120 Cardioid Condenser Microphone can be used with a variety of different microphone stands. You could use a tripod style floor stand with a boom arm like the Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom (B&H # AUMS5230F) or without a boom arm like the Auray MS-5230 Tripod Microphone Stand (B&H # AUMS5230). If you prefer a tabletop stand, the Auray TT-6220 Telescoping Tabletop Microphone Stand (B&H # AUTT6220B) and the Ultimate Support JS-DMS50 Tabletop Mic Stand (B&H # ULJSDMS50) are both good options. If you would like a studio broadcast arm, the Samson MBA38 Microphone Boom Arm - 38" (B&H # SAMBA38), the On-Stage MBS5000 Broadcast/Webcast Boom Arm with XLR Cable (B&H # ONMBS5000), and the Auray BAE-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with External Springs & Integrated XLR Cable (B&H # AUBAE2X) are all compatible. Please feel free to contact us if you have additional questions or if you would like further assistance to select a microphone stand that will be best for your specific application.
