The D202 is quite a large microphone, measuring 8½" in overall length, and just over 2" in diameter at its widest point. The majority of the tapered body is made from a tough, rigid plastic material, but the mic has a distinctive appearance, largely due to the striking design of the rear sound entry slots protruding from either side of the metal base section, which also houses the XLR output connector and a recessed response switch. The diaphragm assembly is protected by AKG's very tough, but acoustically transparent 'sintered bronze' grille material, which is finished, like the body, in a non-reflective black.

Within the two-way transducer system, the low frequency diaphragm handles only the 20 to 800 Hz region, while the high frequency unit mounted in front of it, takes over from 800 Hz up to the nominal 20 kHz upper limit of the response. The design utilises a hum-cancelling coil to reduce external field interference. This is an additional coil, similar to the diaphragm coil, but wired out-of-phase; interference is picked up equally in both coils, but then cancelled out by the opposite phasing. A three position bass-cut switch is also featured, offering 0, 7 or 20 dB of attenuation at 50 Hz, to assist in reducing handling noise and other unwanted low frequency sounds.
