- What kind of microphone? (Song, sound, mixed ..)
This is not a microphone singing. It's a microphone that picks up acoustic instruments (guitar for example), possibly before a guitar amp to the battery (overhead), percussion, etc ...

- What technology? (Electret, condenser ...)
The Perception 170 is a micro electrostatic. It possde:

- A cardioid polar pattern

- A gold-plated diaphragm (plastic, gold plating on one side) to DViT a short circuit on rear llectrode even for extremely high sound pressure levels levs.

- Significant margin before saturation, minimum distortion: Able to reproduce without noticeable distortion of sound pressure levels of up to 155 dB and built to rsister tempratures lhumidit and leves.

- Pr-attnuateur of switchable sensitivity: The switch-pr attnuation the back of the microphone allows daugmenter 20 dB margin before saturation proximity to a recording of undistorted. The pr attnuateur DViT of sensitivity allows the output level of the microphone noccasionne, especially low frequencies, an overload of transformers on miniature frquemment utiliss advantages of between mixers, etc..

----------------------

Small important note: The packaging is trs summary, and I regret qu'AKG have not provided a small pouch for the microphone being protected (like Sennheiser, Shure or even). Prvoyez to buy one, or simply do as I do, keep the bote and moss, and store when not in use anymore. This is an unfortunate for transportation, if it is a microphone that is used in studio and / or concert.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I bought this microphone Monday, November 17

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
J'tais looking for a microphone to record my acoustic guitar, but I did not expect so much of this microphone. It can be rvler go anywhere, Swiss Army knife, either in studio or in concert (see above)

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Not at all ...

- How do you report qualitprix?
I pay by coupon Milonga in 70, but it was worth 100. Sure, it's a sum, but affordable compared to professional microphones, who rate much more expensive, empty. Finally, it is a good investment, given the possibility it offers, it will be useful both in studio and / or concert.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Honntement ... I do not know at all ...

I would put in a little while, a few samples of acoustic guitar recorded with this microphone.
