Comments about AKG Perception P3S Vocal Microphone:
I just purchased four of these to upgrade my PA system mics.
First off, although the information from AKG says these are best suited for backing vocals, and not recommended for leads, these mics also do an outstanding job with lead vocals and in harmony [think groups like the Lettermen, CSN, Beach Boys] group settings.
I even A/B tested these against a condensor mic [an MXL909] and a Shure SM58 recording into a Zoom R8 using a Samson C-Valve pre-amp. The AKGs all showed a consistent, flat response over their frequency spectrum--which is wider than those indicated for the MXL or Shure microphones. So I could, in a pinch, use these for recording mics as well--eliminating the need for phantom power.
The build quality looks sturdy, although I have no intention of slinging these around or twirling them on their cables like Ozzie or Roger Daltry.
To sum up: Condensor mic performance in a dynamic mic--with a low cost, from a time-tested manufacturer of quality microphones make this a proven winner.
