Additional Information

C214ENGINEERED EXCELLENCEfor recording of lead vocals and solo instruments in studio and on stage

The C214 large-diaphragm condenser microphone has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family. Like the C414, the C214 offers a supreme one-inch capsule on an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. A switchable 20dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156dB SPL. A switchable bass-cut filter allows close-up recording with almost no proximity effect. The C214 captures sound by combining one capsule of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and the patented AKG Back-Plate Technology, resulting in an outstanding performance close to the famous C414 XLII.

Cost-Effective Alternative

The new C 214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C 414 family. This new microphone uses the same 1-inch dual-capsule as the legendary C 414 in a single-diaphragm, cardioid-only design. The result is a class-leading performance close tothat of the famous C414 B-XLS.

Legendary Large-Diaphragm Sound

The C 214 has AKG’s legendary large-diaphragm sound and is capable of incredible 143 dB dynamic range for uncompressed, life-liketransients. The C 214’s edge-terminated capsule delivers a highly-detailed, up-front sound that brings out every nuance of any voice orinstrument. Thanks to its switchable 20-dB attenuation pad and low cut filter, the C 214 can be used in sound fields as high as 156 dB SPL –so it can be used on stage for close-up miking for even very loud applications like drum overheads, guitar amps or high-output brass.

AKG's Roadworthy Construction

The C 214 features an integrated capsule suspension that reduces mechanical noise and resonances for even greater sonic accuracy.The double mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting acoustical performance. The C 214 hasa roadworthy construction quality with a modern scratch-resistant finish, a dent-resistant, metal grille and a gold-plated XLR-type output.

What's in the Box

The C 214 comes complete with carrying case, windscreen, and spider-type shock mount.

This condenser microphone will surely help those working in a project studio and/or up to big professional studio. However do not mistaken this for a cardioid only version of the c414 xls or xlii. This version is a totally different beast due to the way the capsule is made. It also does not sound similar to its older sibling and actually sounds closer to a c12 instead. If someone told you this is basically a c414 but a cardioid version then they haven't actually mic a/b test the two and most likely gave their opinion due to it looking strikingly similar. Now it doesn't mean this is bad or terrible, it is actually quite friendly since it gives out articulation to speech while not being harsh. Will it work on all voices, no it will not. Before you head out to buy any microphone, you should find out what is your tonal range and how your voice actually is rather than what you want it to be.
