Product Description

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.
