le_kornichon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" One of my favorites!"

AKG C 535 EB
This is an electret condenser microphone, supplied with 48V Phantom. Fairly small membrane suspended and well protected by a fairly effective windscreen against wind noise and plosives (but not perfect). Low-cut two position attenuator.


This mic is full of qualities! It is perfect to get a clear and defined sound.
Much has already been said about this microphone, so I will not add too much, but I advise you to try on TOMS: it is simply the best micro toms I've ever seen all ranges combined price! And when to put one microphone between two toms, I can not imagine anything more to the latter.

There is almost no off-axis détimbre: sources from the sides and rear are attenuated but not distorted, then the repisse is clean and it changes a lot of things to the mix!

I stopped recording guitar amps with it. It is infinitely better than a SM57 but is not used in the same way: I have the right place in the axis of the speaker but between 40cm and 80cm apart. Thus the micro takes out the whole sound of the speaker, not just the few square inches of membrane that are just glued to the 57 to the gate of the amp. And it works great! Whereas with my other mics, it not and I preferred the old 57.

Tested on drums, it was beautiful! On vocals, it can do but live in the studio I will avoid at least look for a typed his FM radio on the speaking voice for example.

blancjs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excelent on female voices"

AKG C 535 EB
Vocal mic mainly although I suppose that ca pass on instruments or other types flute wind instruments with a windscreen.


I used it for my 1 year singer live mainly.
Rapprt excelent value for female voices. Much clearer and detailed an old SM58, much cleaner!

-Livingroom-'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" static foolproof!"

AKG C 535 EB
It is a condenser mic, I think it excels on various percussion, OH it also works very well (for the price I mean!) And some guitars, remote if you want to capture the reverb of a room. The voice if it may be appropriate (for the preproduction) brass also make good ... And it is very sturdy! This makes an excellent point for ztatique.


I know for a long time and use it for my personal use for one year. I had and have other static in their hands, and this one serves me absolutely still on percussion and often on other things. It may lack bass, which due to its small membrane, but this detail is not a problem for me. I would do this choice, double!

alexis76's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect!"

AKG C 535 EB
Regarding the mic, it is super versatile for technical details, I suggest you go see prior notice ;)


I use it for a week, but I had met before.

What I like? Already is that it has the ability to do a lot of things, made tools, but I use it a lot on certain types of voice, as it offers a good definition of sound, clear, precise, beautiful in high / medium.
However, cash out the hits (snare for example)
I also like the fact that for a static, it is not sensitive to larsens and handling noise, which is quite handy on stage.
It has a built-in filter, something that is also very practical!

The least? For now I have not found, except that it requires 48V, but it is the principle of static. Be careful, do not move to a standard clip, but on a small clip (OH-type)

I tried a lot of microphones, Beyer, Sennheiser, SE, Audio Technica, Audix, some Shure SM58 which (yuck) ...

It has its price, but it's a great mic, used on many things, which is not to be overlooked!

With experience, I most certainly do it again this choice

blackle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
Electret cardioid microphone on scene ..


Used for vocals, brass and woodwinds, strings .. it remains a standard microphone! probably the mic that I use the most on stage and in the studio, with a very good versatility, he suffers only one default .. the irresistible urge to buy more ..

sylvaindesbois's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
What kind of a microphone? Versatile

What type of technology? electret on 48v power supply


A very good tool adapts to the spoken voice.

Studio use with suspension preference (microphone on table).
Have you tried many other models before acquiring this one? Many, dynamic and static

What do you think in terms of price/quality ? More and more interesting .  Good value.

PS: used in the studios of Europe1

wash_o's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
What kind of microphone? (Song, sound, mixed ..)

All uses. Singing the snare, to the resumption of amp ...

What technology? (Electret, condenser ...)



How long have you use it?

15. Not always the same: o)

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

The best: clear and micro prcis, hides nothing, equilibrated across the spectrum, acute trsdfinis, mdiums do not saturate, low mdiums prcis, low trs own. Resistors with good feedback.

The least: not age well. Electret capsule fatigue. A C535 that 10 years is not worth much. Big Difference gain and spectrum between two microphones after the age.
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

I n'achte no microphones (a few Neumann / Schoeps) but I use a lot. The C535 is one of my microphones prfrs.

How do you report qualitprix?

Excellent. For 250 you have almost the quality of KM140 or a WCC-3. On certain aspects (Larsen, treble) is even better.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...

Yes, no hsitation.

mcmix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
I will not repeat what has excellently said ... rdubost trs versatile.


Buy will have one year.
What I like:
- Scne on: in fact he left little feedback, I will say as much as a beta 58 and certainly less than a SM 58 for much more sensitive
- In home studio: the sound for the price, really great for a small membrane, a smooth and clear

In short I recommend + + +, for the price Do not hesitate, and more on scne it will ask you not to worry. Good sound, cheap, easy to use: strong arguments.

J-Luc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
I found this microphone at a folk festival, there was a lot on stage to the beats (accordions, guitars, flutes, violins ...) and even voice. The sound, the insensitivity to feedback, despite an excellent ability to chopper instrument sawed me.
[Edit 06/02/08] I use each for voice and dance at home for stuff that is nickel.


I've had this fall, is the top for the acoustic guitar. FINALLY, concern over investment, more resonant with the con, at the top of easy to use! I tried the NT1 (zero for the guitar), ATM-33 (good), Oktava MK012 (but much less brightness) and C-535, the revelation :-) .
[Edit 06/02/08] A brightness chouille too precisely. The pick-jack creek and the creaking chanterelle. On a somewhat male folk, it can be difficult to correct.

It is not overpriced, his job done perfectly, whatever you ask for?

Thank you thank you Arnaud, "Plastok2" on this site, my guru, for advice.
