The condenser microphone is housed in a rugged chassis with a gold-plated XLR-type output. Spider-type shock mount and metal case included.

In 2005, AKG launched the Perception models 100 and 200. This was the beginning of a big success story.

AKG's Perception Microphones are among the best wired condenser microphones for their price point.
