Today at InfoComm 08, AKG Acoustics announced the release of the new D7 vocal microphone. Like its popular predecessor the D5, the D7 is a dynamic microphone that delivers incredibly clear sound for lead and backing vocals for live sound applications. The D7 additionally features an improved capsule design with a humbucking coil and a high-pass filter along with a sleek new look.

AKG`s newest dynamic microphone features a humbucking coil that greatly reduces electrical interference and stage feedback—ensuring that only pure vocal sounds come through. The D7 also features an integrated high-pass filter that cuts out low frequencies, eliminates handling noise, and provides better audio clarity. The result is a higher-quality microphone that offers complete control for singers and announcers and, therefore, a better audio experience for audiences.

“Our goal in creating the D7 was to build upon the success of our D5 microphone and take microphone performance and reliability to the next level,� explained Thomas Umbauer, Product Manager, AKG Acoustics. “The humbucking coil and high-pass filtering featured in the D7 design ensure that musicians and presenters alike will experience unsurpassed sound quality and lasting durability.�

The D7 delivers high-end sonic performance thanks to its new Laminated Varimotion diaphragm. This design allows the diaphragm to be fine-tuned without extra tuning resonators and represents a giant leap forward in audio performance. The D7 response evokes the subtle, open sound of a condenser microphone, while maintaining the rugged reliability of a dynamic microphone.

The D7 comes complete with a carrying case, mounting clamp, and a replacement windscreen, ensuring long life for the microphone. Two additional models are also available: the D7-S, which features an on/off switch; and the D7-WL1 microphone capsule for use with AKG wireless systems.

“We designed the D7 microphone to be the best hand-held microphone for vocals, with performance that stands on the leading edge of dynamic microphone technology,� added Umbauer. �The D7 illustrates AKG’s commitment to innovation and our dedication to providing the very best microphones in the industry.�
