AKG P120 review
Mihail S., 12.09.2014
It is a very nice large diaphragm condensor microphone with a great freq. response. I really like the high and low end roll-off features included and the sound quality is the best you will get for this kind of money. All in all it is a great starter mic. if you are looking to get your home studio up and running this is definately a mic you would want to get, you can record anything from vocals to percussion and if you know what you are doing you can get some great sounding recordings with it and it doesn't cost a lot (great value for price).

Must have condenser mic for entry level
Mr.Küpsis, 09.04.2021
I don't record vocals. I have tried this mic on many different purposes and had great results in all of them. Including percussion, acoustic guitar, field recording, amp micing etc. Once you know the overall characteristics of the mic, which takes some time, it is then easy to find the optimal way to use it for your purposes.
The build quality is fantastic. I wish it came with a better box though.

Best micro for its money.
andrewvysotskiy, 27.11.2020
I don't really super mega pro to hear big difference between micro for 100 euro and micro for 200 euro bud i hear difference between 100 euro micro and 50 euro micro, so i bought AKG P120 like a medium variant for working with a sound and I happy. Thomann.de thank you for possibility to hear how sounds micro before buying.

Good for the price
Timothy Hanford, 17.05.2018
This mic is an excellent addition to one's collection as a budget condenser.
The mic features two switches: a PAD and a low cut. A polar pattern switch would be nice but this price you can't expect things like that. The mic does come with a stand adapter, always a useful thing to have. It's a shame it doesn't come with a case, but I just keep the box for when it's in storage.

The mic is of good construction; feels like it'll last a long time.

When it comes to the sound, it's not bad for a budget mic. It's clear and has a good frequency response overall, but you'll definitely want to EQ things in the mix.

Overall I must say this mic is very good quality for the price, I can recommend it if you need some condenser mics but don't want to go splashing too much cash.
