chimimic's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good mic"
AKG C 417
I use these mics (I have two) for a very short time. I bought the version with XLR, for which some users have reported problems with the length of the connector pins. For my part, noted nothing unusual.
Before purchasing, I also tried the Sanken COS11 and the DPA 4080. Of all, I preferred the Sanken but as I had to buy three lapel microphones, it was a bit heavy (I have other priorities). So I bought a MKE-40-EW and two AKG C-417-PP, both models are suitable for my use (and documentary interviews fixed).
These microphones are omnidirectional type, not too difficult to find them a suitable position - I have not said we can put them anywhere, it must still minimal testing
Output level more feeble as the Sennheiser MKE-40, but easily exploitable with a proper preamp (used on DR680, no worries). Not find any annoying background noise.
Upon receipt of the package, one of the two C-417 was defective. But he came out of its very low distortion and high, with a nice hum. The dealer price for the return of service and the one he sent me a replacement works fine. Just to note a (very) slight difference in tone and level between the two, not a problem for me.
Good microphone which I find a good price / quality ratio. Better quality than my electret one euro, it is reassuring.

Ben here is a little gem catches the strap of my left hand diatonic accordion.
Before I had a tie Monacor the diffrence of the trs is sensitive, the C417 has more clearly a more Fidler, simply. Book with the clamp is sufficient to hold on the instrument and the power supply is fantme intgre (C417PP).
