C 520 for external phantom powering

The AKG C520 Head-Worn Microphone With Adjustable Headband, Phantom Powered. High quality head-worn condenser microphone with maximum dynamic range for a perfect vocal sound.

The AKG C520 is an ideal choice for frontmen, singing keyboardists, drummers, guitarists, and dancers. The microphone arm mounts either on the left or right side of the headband as desired. Its cardioid polar pattern effectively rejects unwanted ambient noise. The C 520 provides the perfect solution for any performer needing a handsfree microphone. A transducer shock mount reduces handling noise to a minimum. The moisture shield prevents perspiration from penetrating into the transducer element, ensuring a high degree of humidity protection for the microphone. The C 520 is a condenser microphone and therefore needs a power supply. It can be powered with external 9 to 52 V universal phantom power. This version includes a useful switchable bass rolloff (-4 dB at 100 Hz) on the XLR connector body.
