AKG by HARMAN is introducing the MicroLite series of miniature wearable reference microphones, offering incredible sound quality and durability in a tiny, discreet form factor. Ideal for broadcast, theater and conference applications, the MicroLite series includes lavalier, ear-hook and headworn options, all of which provide exceptional comfort and flexibility. The result of extensive R&D, MicroLite also delivers broad compatibility, excellent moisture resistance and superior EMC protection.

“AKG’s new MicroLite mics are tiny, but the sound they produce is far from it,” said Karam Kaul, Marketing Director for AKG. “Beyond great sound quality, we spent considerable time on every aspect of the design. From ear-hook and headworn models that users can easily adjust on their own, to multiple layers of protection against moisture, these mics deliver superior performance in the most demanding applications.”

The LC81 MD is the smallest cardioid lavalier microphone on the market. It features a diameter of 4.8mm, a length of 10mm, and a weight of 2g. The microphone’s sensitive cardioid polar pattern picks up a wide range of frequencies and provides flexibility in getting the best sound from the source. Available in four colours, the LC81 MD is inconspicuous on every user.

The LC82 MD omni-directional lavalier microphone has a diameter of 3mm and a length of 6.5mm, making it one of the smallest omnidirectional microphones in the world. Ideal for musicals, theater, churches, broadcast and large-format presentations, the LC82 MD also ensures that moisture and makeup won’t dampen a performance. Like the LC81 MD, the LC82 MD is available in four colours.

Similar to their lavalier counterparts, the EC81 MD and EC82 MD ear-hook microphones provide additional options for exceptional wireless sound. Designed for theater, broadcast, musical performances and conferences, the EC81 MD and EC82 MD are engineered for accurate, specific placement. Each microphone offers a flexible ear-hook and adjustable boom length for guaranteed comfort, while users can choose between a cardioid (EC81 MD) or omnidirectional (EC82 MD) model. The EC82 MD also features a highly moisture-resistant design. Both microphones are available in two colors.

For those who prefer an even more stable fit, the HC81 MD and HC82 MC omni-directional headworn microphones deliver unparalleled sound in both cardioid and omni-directional formats, respectively. Featuring flexible ear-hooks and an adjustable boom, they both make it incredibly easy for wearers to customize the fit to their liking. Each microphone is available in two colors, and the HC82 MC features a moisture-resistant design.

All MicroLite microphones feature a cable with a Microdot connector, which is compatible with a variety of different connections, as well as all major manufacturers of wireless microphone systems. This provides the flexibility to integrate the MicroLite microphones into a variety of environments, and customize the system for optimal performance. They are also a terrific complement to AKG wireless systems such as the DMS800, and can be easily integrated with products from other HARMAN brands.

A variety of accessories are also available with the MicroLite series, including wire-mesh protection caps, foam windscreens, phantom power adapters, lavalier clips, and perspiration and makeup protectors.
