In all versions, the foam blast filter inside the steel basket can be easily removed for cleaning. 22% Off: AKG Acoustics D7 Supercardioid Reference Handheld Dynamic Vocal Microphone, 70Hz-20kHz Frequency Response, 2000 Ohms Load Impedance, 3-pin Male XLR MFR: 3139X00010. A method of manufacturing a diaphragm for an electroacoustic transducer which … has portions with different thicknesses made from a thermoplastically deformable material having a constant thickness, wherein, in a first work step, that portion of the diaphragm material which is to have the greater thickness in the finished diaphragm, is held by an inner positioning device, while the remaining area of the diaphragm is additionally held by an outer positioning device, and the remaining area of the diaphragm is pulled or stretched with the influence of tension and heat to reduce the thickness thereof. The mic’s capsule is shockmounted to reduce handling noise. Please let us know! In a second workstep, the entire diaphragm is thermoplastically stamped in a mold. Fortunately, the D7 behaved well in both respects, delivering an adequate level of clear and well-balanced sound with no significant popping problems. Did we get anything wrong on this page? The mic is available in several colors and configurations: All models come with a mic clip (AKG p/n SA 61), a nylon pouch, and a replacement internal windscreen (which fits inside the metal headbasket). Please turn it on so that you can experience the full capabilities of this site. ⚠ WARNING : Cancer and Reproductive Harm - www.P65Warnings.ca.gov. The patented dual-layer Varimotion diaphragm can vibrate unhindered, which results in an extraordinarily crisp and clean sound. In order to add new products we have to empty your current cart. That AKG managed a supercardioid pattern is not magical; this is not difficult. It uses AKG’s patented “Laminated Varimotion” diaphragm, which is tuned to enhance the intelligibility of speech. The unique laminated material damps high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which in combination with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern enables the D7's outstanding high gain before feedback. The D7 is a dynamic handheld vocal microphone. The AKG Acoustics D7 is also known as: D-7. We noticed that you already have spare parts in your cart. The unique laminated material dampens high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which combined with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern enables the D7's outstanding high gain before feedback.Its mechano-pneumatic capsule suspension and an integrated high-pass filter effectively eliminate handling noise. There are a couple of peaks, notably in the low end and in the early mids, and a bit of a shelf boost around 5,000 Hz with a bit of a dip. The AKG Acoustics D7 is also known as: D-7. In order to add spare parts we have to empty your current cart. Supercardioid The mic has a fixed high-pass filter at 80Hz. It is designed to fit the HT4500 and DHT800 handheld transmitters. Specifications. The use of varying thicknesses is not new or original nor, as far as we can tell, covered by AKG’s patent on this capsule. Buy now & save $50.

The AKG D 7 has a frequency response that begins at 70 Hz and continues up to 20,000 Hz, although starting around 15,000 Hz, there is a very aggressive roll off. The unique laminated material damps high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which in combination with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern enables the D7's outstanding high gain before feedback. Frequency Response - Supercardioid Click Graph to Compare! Your browser's Javascript functionality is turned off. © 2020 Harman International Industries, Incorporated. AKG’s second claim is that the mic exhibits exceptionally high gain before feedback because of its frequency-independent supercardioid pattern. The capsule has a supercardioid pickup pattern to reduce the transduction of off-axis sound from neighboring singers or instruments. (2.6 mV/Pa; 70 - 20,000 Hz). All rights reserved. The patented dual layer Varimotion diaphragms can vibrate unhindered which results in an extraordinary crisp and clean sound. This item is currently not available to order online directly from AKG. The capsule design is called “Varimotion;” it employs a diaphragm of variable thickness. Frequency response and durability are two important aspects that come to mind when I think about a good microphone. I award a firm “yes “to both questions when it comes to the AKG D7. The patented dual-layer Varimotion diaphragm can vibrate unhindered, which results in an extraordinarily crisp and clean sound. The patented dual-layer Varimotion diaphragm can vibrate unhindered, which results in an extraordinarily crisp and clean sound. May 6, 2009 12:00 PM, By John McJunkin. Audio Review: AKG D7. The mic was released in 2008. The D7 WL1 reference dynamic vocal microphone head creates the subtle and opened sound of a condenser capsule with the powerful resonance of a dynamic microphone. Also, a high-pass filter, which rolls off low-end sound below 80Hz, is built into the output circuit. Rather, the patent covers the manufacturing process that yields a varying-thickness membrane at low cost. Microphone Type: Wired The LDT (chrome) version also includes a microfiber cleaning/polishing cloth. We often have problems with getting adequate level without feedback, and when we use a system with [subwoofers], popping is sometimes a significant issue with our existing [vocal] mics. The unique laminated material damps high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which in combination with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern enables the D7's outstanding high gain before feedback.
