Great Microphone for Location recording

11.09.2015
Bought these for use in a school radio station as the are used by many state broadcasters.

We use them for location recording of Vox Pops and Interviews.

The microphones are very well built and have almost zero handling noise which is important when shuffling around on the street.

This microphone also has a Omni polar pattern which means it picks up sound from all directions, again great when interviewing on the street as mic placement is not so critical.


Being a dynamic microphone, a good preamp or recorder is recommended in order to avoid noise.

With a half decent recorder and help in a reasonable position the microphone delivers clear smooth sound that required minimal tweaking before broadcast.

Highly recommended.

Robustes Outdoormikro

Mikroton SBF, 07.02.2016
Wenn die Aufnahmesituation nicht planbar ist, so kommt ein sog. Reportermikro gerade recht, auch wenn manche Eigenschaften erst einmal nicht so überzeugend erscheinen.

Ich habe für Außenaufnahmen ein robustes, dynamisches Mikrofon mit guter Soundwiedergabe gesucht und im AKG D 230 gefunden. Seine Ausstattung ist zwar auf das Minimum beschränkt, aber richtig vermisst habe ich irgendwelche Extras (z.B. Schalter oder low cuts) bisher noch nicht. Dafür kriege ich das, was mir bei der Auswahl besonders wichtig war, nämlich praktisch absolute Zuverlässigkeit. Die wird u.a. durch die massive Bauweise und gute Materialverarbeitung des Gehäuses bewirkt. Ich habe mich schon gefragt, ob das Mikro deshalb nicht waffenscheinpflichtig sein könnte. ;)

Das Handling ist dank des langen Griffes gut, Griffgeräusche werden gut gedämpft, wenn auch nicht vollständig. Aber sie liegen definitiv weit unter dem, was ich bei manchen dynamischen Gesangsmikros schon erlebt habe. Zwar ist ein Windschutz eingebaut, aber ich habe draußen doch lieber einen extra Windschutz aufgezogen. Sicher ist sicher. Im Innendienst braucht's den dann nicht, denn der integrierte Windschutz taugt's dort allein.

Reportagemikrofone haben traditionellerweise omnidirektionale Charakteristik (Kugel), was Nahbesprechungseffekte ausschließt. Also nix mit sonorer Stimme direkt vorm Korb, dafür ist es aber für Atmos prädestiniert, oder aber auch bei Gruppengesprächen und Situationen, in denen das Gegenüber sich viel bewegt, in seinem Element. Hinzu kommt ein schönes, klares und transparentes Klangbild dank recht breitem Frequenzspektrum, das ein wenig an Kondensatormikros erinnert, aber dann doch nicht ganz so filigran klingt (aber dennoch dicke ausreicht).
Der Output fällt ein klein wenig höher aus als bei vergleichbaren Mikros mit dynamischer Arbeitsweise, das fällt aber nicht wirklich auf, nur wenn man darauf genau achtet.

Insgesamt ist das AKG D 230 ein sehr gutes dynamisches Mikro, das meine Erwartungen und Wünsche voll erfüllt. Lediglich einen externen Windschutz hätte ich mir noch gewünscht, auch wenn der wegen des eingebauten (angeblich) nicht notwendig sei.

Aufgrund der erwartbaren langen Lebensdauer ist der Preis völlig ok, im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz sogar top.
