High directivity and wide frequency response in a relatively short shotgun make this microphone a perfect tool for theater, sound reinforcement and film/TV applications.
Due to its compact and lightweight design, the AKG C 568 B is ideal for camera mount applications. Below 500 Hz it functions as a hypercardioid microphone; above 500 Hz the acoustic interference tube introduces increasing directivity. A switchable 12 dB/octave 120 Hz bass cut filter effectively suppresses rumble and wind noise. The rugged, all-metal body contains the built-in preamp. Phantom powering (9–52 V) required; foam windscreen and stand adapter included.
