Official microphone for international competitions, designed specifically to meet beatboxers' requirements 08/04/11
Here's the AKG press release...
Beatboxing, one of the "elements" of hip-hop, involves imitating drum-computer type sounds
and other percussion rhythms using the mouth, nose, or throat. With no surprise, beatboxers need extremely reliable
microphones. HARMAN's AKG designed the dedicated BBB Dfive to cater specifically to the needs of beatboxers. It has
been developed in cooperation with the Beatbox Battle® network, the largest Beatboxing community worldwide.
As one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality headphones, microphones and wireless systems for
professional use, AKG designed the BBB DFive by taking its world renowned D5 to a new level of performance,
improving the acoustic clarity of the microphone already praised for its performance and reliability. In order to optimize
D5 for beatboxing use, AKG added an even more effective internal windscreen that prevents unwanted explosive sounds
without altering the brilliant sound of the microphone. "The response to BBB DFive has been overwhelmingly favorable," explained Alfred Reinprecht, VP Marketing, AKG. "We
are pleased to see our beatbox-focused mic is even more popular now among these sophisticated acoustic performance
artists. This microphone is becoming the new standard tool for beatboxing."
The microphone made its performance debut at the German Beatboxing Championships in Berlin this February. The two
finalists also used their BBB DFive Beatbox microphones at major German TV shows.
In addition, the BBB DFive Beatbox Microphone comes in a new type of packaging - a cool looking can, and is available
