    Magazine Reviews
    Sound on Sound, February 2009 "This is a very capable range of affordable microphones, but they're not without serious competition at a similar or even lower price point." https://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb09/articles/akgperception.htm Voice Council, August 2011 "The 420 is a very versatile mic at a great price. It will suit singers who only have the budget for one mic and want to record a multitude of instruments, however if you only plan to record vocals there are probably better choices of microphone for the money (or you could save some money and try out AKG’s Perception 220)." http://voicecouncil.com/review-akgs-perception-420-mic/
