The AKG Ara Professional Dual-Pattern USB Condenser Microphone lets podcasters, communicators, bloggers, gamers and musicians capture pro-quality, high-resolution sound right from their desktops.

Whether youโ€™re streaming, meeting or recording, capture audio at 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for crystal-clear speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks.

Araโ€™s dual pickup patterns let you focus on a single voice or instrument or everyone in the room: Choose the directional Front (cardioid) pattern to focus on sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; use the Front + Back (omni) pattern to pick up sounds all around the mic, such as multiple speakers or a group of performers.

Use Ara with the integrated base stand (included), on a desktop boom arm, or with a common microphone stand. On the go? Take an OTG adapter or Apple Camera Adapter with you, and use Ara when away from your desktop computer. Itโ€™s plug-and-play simple, thanks to USB connectivity and class-compliant drivers.
