The AKG Perception P3 S is a handheld cardioid dynamic microphone designed for audio capture of background vocals and instruments on stage, at rehearsals, and in recording sessions. Its dynamic capsule yields a 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and a maximum SPL of 144 dB. The cardioid polar pattern delivers reliable on-axis directivity and excellent rejection from the rear of the mic. A noiseless on/off switch allows easy and silent muting between performances. The rugged metal housing and wire-mesh grille withstand the rigors of live shows and lengthy tours. The Perception P3 S ships with a stand adapter and storage bag.
