Shipping Information

The shipping process is fully robotic and orders are normally pulled and shipped quickly in 7 different warehouses across the US and then dropped in sealed USPS, UPS and FedEx containers for pick-up on the next business day. High volume or backordered items may have additional shipping delays. Once pulled, orders cannot be stopped, however you can return orders for refund unopened if you have changed your mind. Tracking normally is sent / updated within 48 hours of pick-up. Delivery is normally 3-10 business days after leaving the warehouse, however carrier delays may occur. Shipping may take longer in rural areas, due to carrier delay, weather or acts of God. Weekends and Holidays do not count as business days and have no pickup, movement or delivery.

Covid 19 Update — We have seen slowdowns and backlogs in package pickup, sorting, scanning and delivery by UPS, Fedex and USPS caused by worker shortages and facilities disruption due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Some UPS and USPS hubs are no longer scanning all packages, as a result some tracking will show nothing until delivery.

The AKG Ara dual-mode USB microphone lets podcasters, bloggers, gamers and musicians capture pro-quality, high-resolution sound right from their desktops. Whether you're streaming or recording, capture audio at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for crystal-clear speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks. Ara's dual pickup patterns let you focus on a single voice or instrument or everyone in the room. Choose the directional Front (cardioid) pattern to focus on sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; use the Front + Back (omni) pattern to pick up sounds all around the mic, such as multiple speakers or a group of performers. Use Ara with the integrated base stand (included), on a desktop boom arm, or with a common microphone stand. On the go? Take an OTG adapter or Apple Camera Adapter with you, and use Ara when away from your desktop computer. It's plug-and-play simple, thanks to USB connectivity and class-compliant drivers.

KEY MESSAGES | Pro-Grade, High-Quality Sound
Record professional-quality audio at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for ultimate speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks. Gamers experience the thrills of fidelity that outperforms headsets, and videoconferencing is elevated with crystal-clear sound that's far superior to built-in laptop or phone mics. And with a max SPL of 120 dB, there's plenty of headroom for recording high-output instruments like drums, horns and electric guitars.

Record Anything With Capsule Array Modes
Ara provides two selectable pickup patterns for maximum versatility. The directional Front (cardioid) pattern captures sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; it's perfect for podcast hosts, bloggers, gamers, videoconferencing and miking instruments. The Front and Back (omni) pattern picks up sound evenly from all sides, making it ideal for capturing interviews with multiple speakers, tracking multiple singers and instruments, or recording ambient sounds on location.
