The C1000 is a cardioid/hypercardioid[1] condenser microphone produced by AKG Acoustics.[2] It uses either phantom power or an internal 9-volt battery for when phantom power is inconvenient or unavailable. This flexibility is also useful when using consumer recording gear that frequently lacks phantom power. The pattern is switchable with the addition or removal of an optional capsule attachment.
