In an introduction that couples the company’s studio-proven audio performance with a rugged, comfortable and easy to use design, AKG is introducing the C 544 L head-worn microphone. The new microphone is ergonomically optimized with a behind-the-neck headband to provide maximum comfort and comes with an external shock mount for high mechanical-noise reduction and a flexible frequency response to ensure optimum audio and intelligibility even in the most noisy of environments.
The C 544 L head-worn microphone is designed for sporting applications like aerobics instruction and gymnastics trainers etc., amplified presentations or on stage vocal performance. The cheek pad allows it to stay in place even if the users head is turned abruptly, and the capsule shock mount reduces handling noise to a minimum. There is a new moisture shield that prevents perspiration from penetrating into the transducer as well as other additional design features that provide optimum protection from moisture and sweat. And the microphone comes with an optimized frequency response for speech and vocals, features that ensure the C 544 L carries on the AKG’s proven heritage of superior audio performance.
“The new C 544 L head-worn microphone from AKG is rugged, extremely easy to use, and offers outstanding price performance,” commented Thomas Umbauer, product marketing manager PPA, AKG. “It’s the perfect solution for anyone who is going to be in constant motion and in need of a flexible design and intelligible audio, and it’s extremely affordable, as well.”
Other features on the microphone include a mini XLR connector that allow the microphone to work with AKG’s efficient B 29 L battery operated power supply and a MPA III L external phantom power adapter. There is also a variant that conforms with AKG’s WMS bodypack transmitters, which employ AKG’s smart-battery power and re-chargeable technology for the most efficient use of energy available.
