The AKG C1000S MKIV brings you the latest update to the popular multipurpose small-diaphragm condenser microphone. Offering maximum versatility, the C1000S is suitable for both recording and live-sound applications. As well as ENG/EFP and video productions. Sporting a gold-sputtered capsule, the C1000S is extremely rugged against humidity. Not to mention, if there's no phantom power available, you can power your C1000S using two AA batteries, providing up to a massive 120 hours of use.  While also featuring a bass-cut switch, switchable -10dB pad, and the ability to easily switch the polar pattern from cardioid to hyper-cardioid. Plus three different frequency settings so you can add more clarity to speech and instrument sounds.

Great for mobile recording or live sound with phantom or battery power

What makes the C1000S extremely popular is its versatility. Making it ideally suited for all kinds of recording, and live sound applications. No phantom power, no worries, you can power your C1000S by two AA batteries. While a reliable LED warning lights up when your C1000S falls below 45 minutes of battery life.  So you'll never be caught out with a useless mic if you don't have access to phantom power. Switchable Polar Patterns Adding to its versatility, the C1000S sports switchable diaphragm cabs. Allowing you to choose between either cardioid or hyper-cardioid polar patterns, or add a presence boost. Giving you an extra 3-5dB of high-end enhancement between 5kHz and 9kHz. Making it a real asset, especially if you're using your C1000S for things like interviews.

Switchable pad and highpass filter for added flexibility

Surprisingly, the AKG C1000S also adds a highpass filter, and pad.  Accessible via the microphone battery compartment, ensuring you won't accidentally switch the settings during run-and-gun recording. Set at 80Hz, the highpass filter is perfect for cutting out handling noise. Likewise, the switchable -10dB pad can save you from preamp overloads when recording loud drums and guitars.
