Sonic Character Of The C414 XLII

The AKG C214 Large Diaphragm Microphone is a highly versatile, premium-grade studio microphone. The C214 bases its design on higher-end microphones from AKG, primarily the C414 family. The C414 range is renowned for its exceptional attention to detail and it’s natural, sparkling sound. AKG have taken the same sonic characteristics that made the C414 range so sought after and put them into this highly affordable condenser microphone. At the heart of the microphone is a premium-grade, one-inch capsule with an integrated suspension for reducing mechanical noise. The cardioid polar pattern and high-end components ensure optimal accuracy and audio fidelity.

Exceptional Audio Performance

Combining years of expertise with high-end components results in the AKG C214. The wide frequency range and high SPL capabilities make it one of the most versatile microphones available. It is highly suited to recording vocals, guitars, drum overheads, room ambience and more. The combination of AKG’s Back-Plate technology and dual-capsule system result in sparkling highs and a defined low-end, capturing every nuance of your source audio. The microphone also features a switchable 20dB attenuation pad, allowing you to record louder sources without distortion. The integrated suspension that the capsule sits in, helps to reduce mechanical noise for optimised signal integrity. It also boasts a switchable bass-cut filter, allowing you to record close-up without any proximity effects.

Robust, Sleek Design

As well as looking sleek, the AKG C214 is also great for both studio and stage applications; thanks to its robust exterior. The all-metal die-cast body features a shock and scratch-resistance finish, designed to withstand the rigors of extensive and prolonged use. The roadworthy design will fit in any studio space or live on stage, helping to bring out the nuances of your performance; whether it be as an ambient mic, drum overhead or used in closed-proximity. Additionally, the microphone comes complete with a H85 universal shock mount and a robust metal carrying case for storing and transporting your microphone, with maximum protection.
