Our take on the AKG Perception P5 S

Made for live vocals

The AKG Perception P5 S dynamic mic lets your lead singer be the star. It features a supercardioid polar pattern that maximizes the gain before feedback, so his or her voice can easily cut through the mix. This handheld mic's rugged metal body and wire mesh grille stand up to rough handling. Its frequency response is tailored to the human voice, and its internal windscreen keeps breath noise to a minimum. An on/off switch means you can turn off the P5 S entirely when it's not in use, preventing extraneous noise from getting into the mix.

Product Research


Overview: The AKG Perception P5S Supercardioid Dynamic vocal microphone is designed for live vocal performances. Its all-metal construction can withstand the rigors of live performance for years. The mic comes with a stand adapter, a thread adapter, and a zippered storage pouch.

Polar Pattern: The P5S has a supercardioid polar pattern that is more sensitive to sounds directly in front of the element. This pattern helps control feedback, and reduces the pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and back.

On/Off Switch: The Perception P5S is equipped with an on/off switch, which allows you to control the microphone while on stage.

Stand Mounting: Included with the P5S is a stand adapter, which tilts approximately 140°. The clamp has 5/8"-27 threads, and comes with a metal thread adapter, so you can mount it to stands with 3/8"-16 threads.
