The AKG C7 reference handheld condenser microphone delivers premium studio-quality condenser sound and hassle-free operation on any stage. With pristine clarity and sparkling high end, the C7 allows lead and background vocals to shine through. And thanks to specially engineered circuitry and custom-designed components, C7 prevents feedback, spill, handling noise, and pop noise from interfering with your performance. No matter where you're performing, C7 delivers premium, worry-free vocal reproduction so you can focus on what really matters.
World-famous AKG condenser sound quality. When it comes to premium studio-quality sound, it's what's on the inside that counts. The C7 microphone features a custom-tuned supercardioid condenser capsule with hand-selected components, so your voice is reproduced with pristine clarity and sparkling highs. And the C7 handles incredibly high sound pressure levels, for maximum fidelity during your loudest performances.
Open-space capsule technology. During your performance, the only feedback you want is applause from the audience. The C7's innovative open-space capsule uses a specially designed inner-capsule holder and three window ports to reduce air turbulence and inner reflections at the backside of the capsule. This creates an extremely consistent supercardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum, for extraordinary feedback and spill rejection.
Proprietary shock absorber suspension. The C7 features a proprietary mechano-pneumatic shock absorber suspension that ensures handling noise won't clutter your sound. The capsule sits on top of a unique rubber insert, preventing vibrations from the housing from reaching the capsule. AKG searched extensively to find the right rubber to meet the specification, ultimately working with a Viennese company to source a material with exceptionally strong absorptive properties. The result is far superior to mics that feature extensive internal electronic filters to minimize handling noise.
Multi-layer pop noise protection system. The C7 features a three-layer pop noise rejection system to protect your vocals from annoying plosives. This multi-layer system includes the proprietary mic grill, dense foam underneath the grill, and a mesh layer that encases the capsule. Each layer slows down the air directed toward it, absorbing the "pops" before they ever hit the capsule. So go ahead - sing as hard as you want.
Rugged construction. With its extremely rugged zinc alloy construction and spring steel grill, the C7 stands up to the most demanding tour schedules. And its 24-karat gold plated capsule protects the microphone against moisture and corrosion. Just focus on your performance - the C7 will take care of the rest, night after night.
