The coronavirus pandemic has meant million around the world are probably listening to more podcasts. This might have inspired a few people to start their own and it looks like AKG has been canny to offer a full kit in this way for a price that isn’t, in our opinion, outrageous.

You don’t get a laptop in the set, but if you’ve already got one then buying this will sort you out straight away. In a press release AKG said of the products included:

“The AKG Lyra is an ultra-HD, multi-mode USB microphone that delivers pristine 24-bit, 192 kHz audio quality, with four versatile capture modes suited to a wide range of recording applications. AKG K371 headphones provide clear, detailed sound with largest-in-class 50mm drivers and a closed-back design for superb sound isolation. Ableton Live 10 Lite is a streamlined audio production platform that allows users to quickly and easily record and edit professional podcasts.”

“The AKG Podcaster Essentials bundle provides everything creators need to transform their computer into a professional-quality podcasting studio,” added Chris Hansen, Director of Recording and Content Creation, HARMAN Professional Solutions.

On this evidence, we are inclined to agree.
