"The Lyra sounds clean and quiet, looks fantastic and adds some useful functionality to the usual USB mic format."

The AKG Lyra is an ultra-HD, multi-mode USB microphone that delivers pristine 24-bit, 192 kHz audio quality, with four versatile capture modes suited to a wide range of recording applications. It is reviewed in the new issue of Sound On Sound magazine.

"The various patterns are very useful, and although the first option (cardioid) is the most obvious choice for podcasting or recording vocals, those stereo and double -sided options provide practical alternatives when it comes to recording music, dual voiceovers or capturing a stereo source."

"This is a very flexible little microphone that goes well beyond the usual remit as a simple podcaster's USB mic. The fact that it looks great doesn't hurt either."

The full review can be found in the September 2020 issue of Sound On Sound magazine on sale now. The AKG Lyra is also available now priced at £139 RRP inc VAT.
