WNAMM07: Miniature AKG Mics
C 518, a strap-on for drummers

AKG Acoustics have announced the newest generation of its groundbreaking MicroMic Series miniature microphone line, designed to be as small and inconspicuous as possible. AKG say that as the original innovator and pioneer of small, high-performance microphones for specialized applications, they have set a new standard in quality and versatility with this revolutionary new MicroMic technology and that the new five-model MicroMic Series offers a unique combination of state-of-the-art sound quality, unmatched flexibility and bullet-proof reliability for musicians and vocalists.
The new MicroMic Series includes five products:
  • C516 designed for use with accordions and for mounting on instrument amplifiers
  • C518 for drum and percussion applications
  • C519 for use on woodwind and brass instruments
  • C520 a premium condenser vocal microphone
  • C555 head-worn microphone for dancers and back-up vocalists
Each of the new MicroMic models offers a flexible gooseneck for optimal positioning and elastic suspension to suppress spurious noise. Additionally, the C516, C518 and C519 offer metal capsule housings and an adapter plate that allows them to be attached directly to AKG WMS 40 Pro and WMS 400 bodypack transmitters, eliminating a cumbersome cable run between the mic and the wireless transmitter. Cabled versions of the new MicroMics terminated in 3-pin XLR-type outputs are available too.
The headset versions C520 and C555 offer flexible boom arms and adjustable behind-the-neck headbands. The C520 and C555 boast a flexible spring steel wire headband and the microphone’s boom arm can be moved to either side quickly and easily.
