Why buy the AKG P220?

If you’re after an entry level, economical, good performing condenser microphone, you can’t go past the AKG P220. It achieves a warm and clean sound and has proven to be highly reliable. In our view, its top three benefits are:
  • It’s a hard-wearing mic - the body of this mic is all metal, making it durable and long-lasting and it comes in a neat aluminium carry-case, perfect for podcasters who get out and about.   
  • Eliminates background noise — if you don’t have a professional studio to record in, footfall and background rumble can impact the clarity of recording. The switchable bass-cut filter eliminates that sound, ensuring that you produce professional high-quality sound.  
  • The shock-mount is included — unlike a lot of other microphones on the market, a good quality shock-mount comes as an included accessory.
