Perfect mic for home studio
Alfred Kyy, 17.02.2020
If you are purchasing condenser mic for your home studio forget all those super-cheap Chinese mics. With less than hundred Euros you can get good mic which is usable in many purposes, such as vocals, percussions or even recording acoustic guitar or other instruments.

Pros:
* Robust
* Low noise
* Accurate warm sound.
* Pad and low cut switches
* Price

Cons:
* Doesn't come with a cradle, just a mic stand adapter.

AKG P120 review
Mihail S., 12.09.2014
It is a very nice large diaphragm condensor microphone with a great freq. response. I really like the high and low end roll-off features included and the sound quality is the best you will get for this kind of money. All in all it is a great starter mic. if you are looking to get your home studio up and running this is definately a mic you would want to get, you can record anything from vocals to percussion and if you know what you are doing you can get some great sounding recordings with it and it doesn't cost a lot (great value for price).

Good for the price
Timothy Hanford, 17.05.2018
This mic is an excellent addition to one's collection as a budget condenser.
The mic features two switches: a PAD and a low cut. A polar pattern switch would be nice but this price you can't expect things like that. The mic does come with a stand adapter, always a useful thing to have. It's a shame it doesn't come with a case, but I just keep the box for when it's in storage.

The mic is of good construction; feels like it'll last a long time.

When it comes to the sound, it's not bad for a budget mic. It's clear and has a good frequency response overall, but you'll definitely want to EQ things in the mix.

Overall I must say this mic is very good quality for the price, I can recommend it if you need some condenser mics but don't want to go splashing too much cash.

Dmitrii LB, 09.01.2019
advantages:
*Good materials
*sound quality
*have a PAD (-20dB), very useful
*have a "low cut"/"HPF",I do not often use
minuses:
*he seemed quiet to me
result. I believe that this is not a professional microphone, and if anything, it is better to turn to more expensive models, but if you are a novice user, then this microphone is a good enough option.
