    AKG H 85 Reviews

    H 85 Universal Shock Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too expensive, considering material & design! I do a lot of on-location live recording, use some AKG mics as well as others, and these AKG shock mounts are cracked/broken in enough places that they're barely hanging together. And that's considering that I'm always very careful with all my gear. Also, you can't point mics downwards using these shock mounts (and they don't hold mics tight enough to put them upside down for a long time). That's a very major drawback for me. Not worth the money. I'm only going to look for cheaper used ones whenever I finally need to replace mine!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality shock mount I use this with my 20 year old AKG 414-B/ULS pair. The original shock mounts are less secure, so it was time to upgrade. Though slightly over-priced, and lacking metal on the threaded section that attaches to a stand, they are worth it considering what they are holding. A bit bulky, but if that helps keep people from hitting them, then the bulk is a benefit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with shotgun microphones too! I have 2 of these that came with my 414TL2 mics. I put them on a pair of K&M boom stands and they never come off. They work great with my Neumann KM185 (hyper cardiod version of the popular 184.) These shock mounts also work great with my Neumann KMR 81i shotgun mic. Just remember that the boom poles used for film have a much smaller screw on adaptor. Some boom poles do use the 5/8 as opposed to the 3/8 inch thread. This shock mount is made of metal in all the necessary places. Which is why I'm posting this. Other brands that cost half the price and made exclusively for film are mostly plastic and considered flimsy. Lots of reviews about them breaking quickly. These will save you in the long run. However, they will be heavier that the plastic ones. And I have no experience attaching a blimp to one. Other than that, oh yeah, they won't hold a Shure 57 or 58. But those come with mic clips. The part to be careful of is these screw threads. On one of mine it's starting to strip, literally after 6 years of heavy usage. That us why I bought the K&M stands that they permanently reside on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far, so good I had a pair of these that came with the newer style xls akg 414's and I liked them enough that I bought a another pair to use with the older b-uls akg 414's. So far, so good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Replacement for orginal c414 mount I broke the mount on one of the c414's in the studio at my school. I thought I was screwed .... This is a great product and it works great with the c414.
