AKG Perception 220 is a very high quality condenser microphone. In particular, it is suitable for recording vocals or guitars (have also tried recording piano and cello). In its price range it is also a very good mic. I believe if AKG would have made this a 40 more expensive then users would still be happy.
AKG gives this mic with decent suitcase, which also comes with a shock mount (helps reduce vibrations). You can also configure the mic a bit. Two switches can be used to engage a high-pass filter and 20dB Pad (useful when recording louder signals such as drums). Workmanship is top notch. Housing is made of metal, and thus highly reliable.
I think that there is no role for this mic can't handle. The sound is very clean and precise - what is expected from a good condenser microphone. Users who have purchased this mic are using it to record vocals. Rap, hip-hop and R & B genres in particular. This microphone has tad more high end, what gives vocals some sparkle. Mid-tones are warm and as well for lower frequencies. I've found a good combination of using the SSL plug-ins (compressor and EQ), to take this microphone to the max
During the first recordings it became immediately clear that it is quality microphone - there was no noise, crackling or Audio distortion. Bear in mind that condenser microphones are very sensitive to pick up sounds. If you can not hear your computer fan, you probably hear it with this mic.
AKG Perception 220 is a very good universal microphone, it fits well in terms of accuracy for guitar and vocal recording. I've found that it can bring out the warmth of a cello as well. Price-quality ratio is very much in place, with additional equipment in form of a suitcase and shock mount.
