Your podcasts or video productions deserve professional audio quality; the AKG Podcaster Essentials delivers! Includes Lyra microphone, K371 headphones & more. AKG’s Podcaster Essentials includes the gear and accessories you need for professional audio wherever creativity takes place.

Lyra Multimode USB Microphone

Enjoying Ultra HD Sound is easy with the Lyra microphone – just plug it into your computer, phone, or tablet. You’ll always sound excellent with the 4K compatible, Ultra HD audio quality that comes naturally to the Lyra. The microphone also boasts cutting-edge AKG Internal Element Overload Prevention, an internal shockmount, and a sound diffuser. These features automatically reduce handling noise and vibrations, and further optimize performance by improving signal levels.

The Lyra may only be one microphone, but four capture modes make it almost like having four microphones. Normally you’d have to buy different microphones to pick up sound from different angles; with the Lyra, you can change the capture mode depending on your recording scenario. The four capture modes are Front (for solo recording), Front & Back (for multi-person recordings), Tight Stereo (for solo instrument recordings), and Wide Stereo (for recordings with ambiance).

Simple controls on the Lyra make it easy to get started. No matter what you’re recording, the performance functions of the mic are ergonomically placed and easily accessed, letting you focus on your creative process. Setup is also further streamlined since headphones can be plugged directly into the Lyra.

K371 Closed-Back Over-Ear Studio Headphones

The K371s are included with the Podcaster Essentials. A perfect pair of traveling headphones, the K371s find the ultimate balance between studio-quality sound and a stylish yet durable folding design that handles the bumps and bruises likely to happen as part of an on-the-go lifestyle. K371 cans are precision-engineered to match AKG’s Reference Response acoustic target, ensuring they reproduce natural, balanced audio in remarkable studio-quality detail, so you can be confident in your decisions while you’re mixing and editing.

Delivering deeper bass and higher highs than other comparable headphones, the K371s also offer an impressively wide frequency response (5Hz to 40kHz). Closed-back over-ear design is great for listening anywhere; closed-back construction isolates your mix from outside noise and over-earcups create even more of a seal for a quiet listening session.

The K371s are also physically equipped for mobile use. Their sleek design is foldable, so they’re easy to fit in a bag or backpack. Headphones are comfortable too, with plush, ergonomic earcups that cradle your ears.

Software and Accessories

The Lyra microphone and K371 headphones go to the next level in the Podcaster Essentials with the included software. Ableton Live 10 Lite audio production software for Mac/PC has everything you need to make production quick and easy with features for editing together takes, adding sound effects, shaping vocals, and even creating background music with pre-recorded loops. A four-part Berklee Online Recording Course is also included, giving you a broad introduction to all things audio production. All the cables you need for this gear are also included.
