The AKG C 1000 S is truly the swiss army knife of microphones. You can use the mic on just about any application or audio source. It comes equipped with a gold sputtered capsule and XLR pins for the best resistance to moisture in the field. Additionally, you can power it by 48 Volt Phantom or via 2 AA batteries with up to 120 hours of continues field use, making this the microphone of choice for many field recording professionals. The pros at Gearboom all agree, if we had one microphone to get stuck on an island with, it would be the AKG C 1000 S!
