C636 is just one of the novelties presented by AKG at NAMM 2018, a condenser microphone equipped with a proprietary “double shock suspension system” able to considerably reduce noise caused by handling, even during the most energetic performances on stage. The capsule is located on a highly absorbent rubber pad that eliminates any noise from the microphone structure, whilst an adjustable balancing net cancels vibrations across the entire frequency range. Furthermore, the brass layer placed under the capsule acts as a counterweight, increasing stability and providing cleaner acoustics.
C636 has a sensitivity of 5.6 mV / Pa, with a frequency response of 20-20000 Hz. It has an electrical impedance of 200 Ohms and SPL at 1% THD of 150 dB, with a Bass cut filter at 80 Hz of 12 dB/octave.
