1.5 Brief Description
The CK 55 is a professional miniature
condenser clip-on microphone with an
cardioid polar pattern. Owing to its
small size, the CK 55 is an ideal choice
for use in any situation requiring an
inconspicuous microphone and maximum mobility for the user.
The microphone’s frequency response
has been designed specifically for
speech reproduction.
An external windscreen supplied with
the microphone reduces wind noise
when using the microphone on an
open-air stage.
The microphone is fitted with a 1.6-m
(5 ft. 3 in.) cable with a locking mini
XLR connector for use with the MPA III
L phantom power adapter or AKG
bodypack transmitters.
2 Interfacing
2.1 Introduction
The CK 55 is a condenser microphone
and therefore needs a power supply.
Important: Using any power supply
other than those recommended
by AKG may damage your microphone and will void the warranty.
