At Winter NAMM 2007, AKG Acoustics announced the newest generation of its MicroMic Series miniature microphone line. The new series includes five products: C516, designed for use with accordions and for mounting on instrument amplifiers; C518, for drums and percussion applications; C519, for use on woodwind and brass instruments; C520, a premium condenser vocal microphone; and the C555 head-worn microphone for dancers and backup vocalists.
Each new model offers a flexible gooseneck for optimal positioning and elastic suspension to suppress spurious noise. Additionally, the C516, C518 and C519 offer metal capsule housings and an adapter plate that allows them to be attached directly to AKG WMS 40 Pro and WMS 400 bodypack transmitters. Cabled versions of the new MicroMics that terminate in 3-pin XLR-type outputs are available, as well.
The headset versions C520 and C555 offer flexible boom arms and adjustable behind-the-neck headbands. The C520 and C555 boast a flexible spring steel wire headband, and the microphone’s boom arm can be moved to either side quickly and easily.
