Whether you're podcasting, making YouTube videos, live streaming, or recording your next hit, easily do it all and sound like a pro with the AKG Lyra Ultra HD, multimode USB microphone. For more than 70 years, the world's greatest recordings and performances have been captured through AKG microphones; now it's your turn. Simply plug Lyra into your PC, Mac, phone or tablet and you'e ready to go.

Your Built-In Recording Engineer: AKG Adaptive Capsule Array
Whether you're recording a podcast interview, a YouTube video voice-over, or your next Spotify single, Lyra's innovative AKG Adaptive Capsule Array adapts to your performance to record pristine audio. Four versatile capture modes eliminate guesswork, so you can quickly dial in professional sound:

  • Front—isolates your target source from distracting background noise by rejecting unwanted sounds at the microphone back and sides. It's perfect for recording or live-streaming spoken word, vocals, or close-miced instruments.
  • Front and Back—captures and blends together sound equally on all sides; ideal for face-to-face interviews and duets.
  • Tight Stereo—captures audio in true stereo. Because this setting provides discrete left and right audio, it provides great sound separation for side-by-side interviews or panel discussions, and is perfect for recording instruments like drums or piano.  
  • Wide Stereo—captures audio with greater stereo separation, room ambience, and depth. This setting is ideal for situations where you want to capture sounds all around the mic, such as documentaries, field recordings, or spontaneous jam sessions.

Plug-and-Play Simplicity
With AKG Lyra, you'll be up and running in no time, no matter your experience level. There's no assembly, no need for a separate audio interface, no fiddling with software settings—it just works, right out of the box. And Lyra is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices so you can quickly capture your ideas in the studio or on the go. From recording music in a digital audio workstation to live streaming on Twitch to shooting a YouTube video, using Lyra is as easy as plugging in a USB cable and pressing Go Live or Record.

Built-In Headphone Controls
When you're speaking, singing or playing an instrument in the studio, you need to hear yourself and your backing tracks at the same time in order to perform your best. That's why Lyra is equipped with a "zero-latency" headphone jack, which eliminates the short delay between when you perform into the microphone and when you hear yourself in the headphones, so you can stay focused on your performance.

Great sound but no self-monitoring


I recently bought this microphone and have used it for work as a conference interpreter, currently from home. I am very happy with the sound quality of this microphone, and I am sure so are my listeners, but in order to work properly, I need to be able to monitor my own output. I managed to get that feature to work (no idea how, though) on two occasions but today I have been in the conference for an hour and a bit, and there is nothing coming out of the headphones plugged into the headphone socket. As much as I like the sound, if this cannot be resolved, I will have to return the mic and put the Yeti back into operation.

LYRA need hardware for streamers


the sound of LYRA is great ! but it needs a hardware that i can control my sound with compressor, noise gate and more... those options are very useful for streamer.



Lyra has excellence in all areas, best buy!


I bought this a few weeks ago for vlogging and it is just perfect, also my friends came, who are a band, all sat round the mic with guitars and singer, it performed superbly. Recommend!!!

It's a piece of art that ROCKS


This is a smash hit right out of the box. Great components and solid build, quick & easy setup, world-class sound. I recorded 2 VO files right away, and within an hour after sending them to the client I heard back that my "voice has a very soothing tone." As my voice does not have a soothing tone, it's gotta be the Lyra. There you go.
