Our take on the AKG Perception 120

The AKG Perception 120 is a great choice for a general purpose studio mic. Its 5/8” diaphragm delivers clear, accurate sound reproduction. And the integrated pop filter helps optimize vocal recording. The mic's all-metal body gives the microphone added durability. A switchable bass-cut filter minimizes rumble and low-end noise. The 120 has a sound pressure level capability of 150 dB, letting you close-mike high energy sound sources — like drums or amps.
