AKG P220 Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)
Captures Warm & Clear Sound from Instruments and Lead Vocals
Boasting even higher SPL handling and lower self-noise than the P120, the black AKG P220 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone is poised to give clear, distortion-free sound on a budget, whether you record vocals at home or mic up blaring guitar cabs and explosive drums on stage. 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 spider-type shockmount to isolate the mic from vibration noise and a metal carrying case for safe transport.
AKG P220 Samples from Audio Test Kitchen
  • B&H is proud to be partnering with Audio Test Kitchen, the world’s most comprehensive online audio product comparison platform, to improve the resources provided to our customers shopping for the right microphone for their given application.
  • This provides you with the ability to listen to a growing selection of microphones with spoken word recordings captured in a standardized environment, with levels matched by the talented engineers at Audio Test Kitchen in its impressive reference studio.
  • Audio Test Kitchen records microphones under identical conditions so you can compare them, apples-to-apples. The source, signal chain, and level never change. The only differences you will hear are between the microphones.
True-Condenser Capsule
The true condenser capsule of the P220 utilizes a 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm tuned to yield a detailed sound with slight rises in high and low frequencies. Plus, it is capable of handling SPLs up to 155 dB (-20 pad on) without audible distortion, so it'll have no problem taking on drums and guitar amps. A low-cut filter at 300 Hz can be engaged to help 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 P220 to an XLR mic input that can supply 48V phantom power.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
This side-address microphone is most sensitive to sounds arriving 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 Large Diaphragm
The P220 features a true condenser capsule design. Its 1" large diaphragm 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 155 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 12 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 P220 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.
Shockmount and Metal Case
Included with the P220 are a spider-type shockmount and a metal carrying case. The shockmount absorbs vibrations, which aids in isolating the mic from stand handling noise and foot noise.
Auray RF-CM-S Reflection Filter (Silver)

The silver RF-CM-S Reflection Filter from Auray is the perfect solution for recording vocalists or voice over artists in less than stellar acoustic spaces where room reflection would otherwise be recorded along with the vocal, making post processing and mixing more complicated. This might be in a home studio, an untreated rehearsal space, or a makeshift film dialogue replacement situation.

Housed in a deep and sturdy, semicircular perforated aluminum shell, the high density acoustic foam provides a reflection free environment for the microphone, while simultaneously attenuating any room noise. The resulting dry and clearer recordings can then be treated during mixing or film post processing without extraneous noises or unwanted reflections getting in the way.

The filter mounts onto a microphone stand, and front and rear sliding brackets easily allow you to adjust its height and depth for precise microphone placement. Standard 5/8"-27 threaded adapters fit most microphone stands, clips and shockmounts.

Compact solution for providing sound isolation for vocal or voice over recording in untreated spaces
High-density foam absorbs acoustic reflections and minimizes room ambience, isolating the microphone
Perforated aluminum shield diffuses and prevents sound that might reflect back to microphone, especially when recording loud vocalists
Sliding bracket makes it easy to mount the microphone in the ideal position inside the reflection filter
Rear adjustable bracket provides additional filter height adjustment to accommodate different vocalist heights
Adapters with industry-standard 5/8"-27 threaded studs and sockets are compatible with mic stands, shock mounts, and mic clips with a 5/8"-27 post.
Deep, semi-circular design ensures dry vocals while attenuating external noise

Auray RFMS-580 Reflection Filter Tripod Mic Stand

The RFMS-580 Reflection Filter Tripod Mic Stand from Auray features heavy-duty steel construction and is capable of providing sturdy support to your reflection filter and studio microphone at the same time. The tripod stand design features collapsible legs for convenient storage, a telescoping center column that can be adjusted to reach a maximum working height of 68".

The stand also features nonslip feet for added traction on hard surfaces as well as a 5/8" threaded adapter for attaching a shockmount or mic clip.

Provides sturdy support to a microphone and a reflection filter at the same time
May also be used as a speaker stand (may require 3/8" thread adapter)

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.
