The microphone fits well, does not slip and can sound as good as a micro that is attached to the side of the mouth. The proximity effect that other buyers noticed, I feel as not really disturbing. My Byerdynamic TG-X81 sounds fuller, more voluminous and more dynamic, but this is also a "real" micro and so the comparison is somewhat unfair. The AKG sounds a touch of flat, but this is not particularly disturbing when backing vocals, and also with solo it contributes to the transparency. It finds its place between the instruments without having to interfere with the sound control. Not bad. With feedback, there is hardly any problem with higher volume.
I noticed two things: On the one hand there is no case included. It does not fit into the package after unpacking. Should I pack the micro now for transportation in a Tupperdose or how did AKG imagine this? Secondly, the connector is almost twice as long as a normal XLR connector, thus represents a large lever and protrudes far out of the mixer. That does not have to be, is it? And therefore there are only 4 points.
Nevertheless, I would not want to miss it any more and work very much with it. Good buy.
