AKG P220 large-diaphragm VS other similar

Pietro G., 13.03.2015
I bought this one for classical guitar recording. This is a real electret microphone. The sound is warm and open. The internal suspension of the diaphragm is really good, even holding the mic in hand you can not hear a rumble. The lo-cut filter is working fine, leaving the voice range unaffected. Even the guitar can benefit of the filter if you use 2 mics at 90 degrees: the mic pointing the fingerboard can cut the lo frequencies and determine a better stereo image, avoiding bass interference and having the compressor working better. I tried this way together with a Rode mic and I had a very good result.
Even if I bought for instrument recording I have to say that the voice is great with this microphone! I have a NT1 Rode but I prefer the sound from the AKG. I have also a Samson C01, but it is not comparable withe the Rode or the AKG. May be it depends on the polar figure, but the response from the Samson was just acceptable. (The price of the Samson is different and I bought for speech recording, so may be we should not compare it with the AKG and the Rode). But the AKG really surprised me. I did not expect such a good performance from a mic of this price.

Amazing detail

21.01.2017
I'm using this for my ambiance sounds, fireworks, my voice and other experiments such as a screeching chair or a microwave.

Positives:

- incredible sound detail, when i'm right next to the mic or even a few meters away from it i can hear my fingers making noise as i move them or when i scratch my mustache i can hear it crunch and the detail is just incredible!

- Would recommend for recording acoustic instruments and maybe even electric guitars if you want but be sure to turn on the - 20db function, you don't want your sound to clip the microphone.

- The high-pass function is neat as well, let's me get rid of my bassy voice when i don't need it.

- The frequency response is nearly almost flat, it's very hard to pin point, but i'd say it gets the job done and if you don't feel like there's enough bass just EQ it in your DAW or if you feel like it has too much bass you can always turn on the highpass function on the fly which is always great.

Negatives:

Doesn't pick up wind too well, get just very noisy and the sound isn't very clear when there's wind.

Overall:

Amazing product overall, very happy with my purchase, i'm going to be taking this and use it in many different locations with many different objects and instruments. looking forward to recording more with this microphone.
