A home and project studio workhorse.

The AKG C2000B/H85 is a microphone that excels at reproducing guitar and vocal sounds. Today, any microphone needs to match the high quality of 24-bit recording media. And one of the basic rules of recording is that the quality of the recorded signal is determined by the weakest link in the signal chain.

Therefore, one of the most important requirements for the AKG C2000B/H85 mic was high sensitivity. This allows you to lay clean, noise-free tracks with no risk of noise levels from many individual tracks combining in the mix. Its high SPL capability makes the C2000B/H85 a highly versatile microphone that can be used even for extremely loud instruments.

The AKG C2000B/H85 mic will deliver perfect results for demo recordings, in the rehearsal room, as well as in the best recording studios.

AKG includes a spider suspension shock mount and hardshell case with the C2000B/H85 microphone.

Requires phantom power.

Outstanding for the price!


from Michigan

Comments about AKG C2000B/H85 Microphone with Shockmount:

I record rock music using my computer and a few external devices and this little baby picks up so much sound that I am going to build a padded room just so it doesn't pick up the computer's fan, the people in the kitchen talking, or my dog barking in the back yard. UNREAL! The sensitivity is just incredible and it makes even me sound good. I tossed my EV mic for this one. WELL WORTH IT and me not having barely any money, it sure went a long way on this purchase. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

A high gain mic with low noise contribution and flat response.


from North Georgia

Comments about AKG C2000B/H85 Microphone with Shockmount:

I like to use this mic, as opposed to dynamics, when I do environmental recordings. It has a great gain for picking up even the smallest of sounds, yet doesn't add significant noise. The low pass filter on the mic is great also, if you don't have a low pass filter on your your preamp. I have a set of two (wish I had a dedicated case) of the these babies. Great buy. I wouldn't trade them in. Incidentally, the mic's housing is nicely transparent by 360 and on top. I find that this doesn't impede the cardioid pattern and you'll have a nice spacial sound especially if things are moving.
