The AKG Perception 200 is a discontinued model of a large diaphragm condenser microphone designed for use the recording studio rather than for live shows.<span> </span>The Perception 200 has a standard cardioid polar pick up pattern form.<span> </span>It also does have a good amount of features for a cheaper microphone, as it has both a bass roll off switch and a -10 db pad.


I’ve only used the AKG Perception 200 a small amount of times in the last year and a small home studio, but feel that I’ve gotten a pretty good gauge of what the mic is capable of and what it isn’t.<span> </span>I’ve used the mic for a few different purposes, including for recording vocals, and as a room mic for electric guitar.<span> </span>I didn’t put it too far away from the guitar amp, just about three feet to get a bit of wetter signal.<span> </span>I definitely liked it better for the latter application, as I felt that although the mic comes in pretty clearly, it lacked the depth that I would want in a solid vocal microphone.<span> </span>Having said this, the mic will get the job done in a small studio setting, it just isn’t up to par with many other microphones out there for this application, and based on the priced I really wasn’t expecting it to be, and you shouldn’t either.<span> </span>If you take the AKG Perception 200 at face value as a budget condenser microphone, it will definitely take you long way.<span> </span>AKG knows what they are doing when it comes to microphones, as they’ve done it for years and years.<span> </span>If you’re looking to assemble a small home studio or want to add to the collection in a cheap way, definitely see if you can scope out a used AKG Perception 200, as there should be plenty of them out there.
