The AKG C 1000 S is designed for vocal and instrument recording in project and professional studios. It is also suited for mobile use or If no phantom power is available, the mic can be powered by a standard 9 V battery. With its battery monitoring electronics, the C 1000 S features a reliable LED warning light. The red LED above the the microphone switch lights up when the remaining battery life falls below 45 minutes. A silent on/off switch is recessed to prevent inadvertent shutoff. The polar pattern can quickly be switched from cardioid to hypercardioid simply by attaching the included PPC 1000 Polar Pattern Converter to the microphone capsule. The PB 1000 Presence Boost Adapter also supplied with the C 1000 S adds 3 to 5 dB of high-end enhancement between 5 and 9 kHz, improving clarity of speech and adding definition to instrument sounds.
