AKG Ara USB condenser mic review

AKG Macaw: One minute review

The AKG Macaw is a mighty fine USB mic. Considering the sea of ​​USB mics you have to wade through to pick one, it’s a good thing that this mic is an easy recommendation. Yes, there are options from Razer, Elgato, HyperX, Blue, and many more, but AKG has been building solid mics since computers were the size of a medium-sized room. So, the company knows what it’s doing.

It’s not a perfect mic as we’ll see. But, anyone trying to get excellent audio for not a lot of money should consider it. It’s easy to use as it’s plug-and-play, sounds pretty good, especially for the price, and has enough functionality for most people.
