Las Vegas (April 18, 2012)—AKG has introduced the HSC 171 and HSC 271 condenser microphone-equipped and HSD 171 and HSD 271 dynamic microphone-equipped professional headset lines, specifically designed for broadcast engineers, sports and news commentators, VO and recording artists.
All four models have a closed-back earpiece design for ambient noise attenuation and signal isolation. The HSC 271 and HSD 271 are circumaural (full-size) and the HSC 171 and HSD 171 are supra-aural (on-ear) designs. All have a detachable cable; if a cable becomes defective under the stress of day-to-day use, it can be replaced with no tools required.
Each headset has a flexible microphone arm; moving through a 270-degree arc, the mic is automatically muted as it is raised towards the headband. The HSC 271 and HSD 271 also feature automatic headphone muting. The microphone can be worn to the left or the right of the wearer’s mouth, and the microphone is shock mounted to attenuate mechanical noise and protect the capsule from damage.
All the headsets are compatible with a choice of optional available cables and connector types, for use in the studio, broadcast booth or on the field, with consoles, computers, camcorders, intercoms or other devices.
The HSC 271, HSC 171, HSD 271 and HSD 171 all come with a windscreen and an additional pair of velvet ear pads.
