The C 544 head-worn microphone from AKG is rugged, extremely easy to use, and offers outstanding price/performance. Resting securely and comfortably on the head, the C 544 is the ideal microphone for any handsfree application including gymnastics instruction, presentations, or onstage performances. With its cheek pads, the C 544 will stay in place even if you turn your head abruptly, and a capsule shock mount reduces handling noise to a minimum. A frequency response rise at 10 kHz and rolloff below 800 Hz ensure optimum audio and intelligibility even in noisy environments. The new moisture shield that prevents sweat from penetrating into the transducer and other design features provide optimum protection from moisture. A helpful drop ring at the lower end of the gooseneck avoids that water and sweat reach the capsule. 4 additional drop rings are included in the package.
- Ergonomically optimized behind-the-neck headband
- Moisture shield
- External shock mount for high mechanical-noise rejection
The microphone body containing the condenser transducer is shock mounted on the microphone arm in order to suppress cable and mechanical noise. The microphone arm will place the microphone in front of the corner of your mouth to minimize pop noise and protect the microphone from contamination. The supplied windscreen makes the microphone even less susceptible to wind and pop noise.
A special moisture shield on the microphone capsule makes it difficult for moisture and makeup to penetrate into the microphone. This barrier prevents the microphone sound entries from being clogged by sweat or makeup which would make the sound dull and reduce the sensitivity of the microphone. Therefore, never remove the moisture shield from the microphone.
The C 544 L is a condenser microphone and therefore needs a power supply.
