AKG's industry-leading C 414 microphones are already a permanent fixture in the world's biggest recording studios and a highly respected work horse for independent artists, broadcasting, and on-stage miking as well.
The C 214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C 414 family. It captures sound combining one side of the legendary C 414 dual-capsule system and AKG’s patented Back-Plate Technology which results in an outstanding performance very close to the famous C 414 B-XLS.
Like the C 414 models, the C 214 is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound such as amplified guitars, with a sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well. Additionally, the microphone offers a 20 dB Attenuation pad, 13 dB noise floor, and a low cut switch—all in an elegant but rugged package.
Additional features include an integrated suspension, a double mesh grill high RF immunity without affecting acoustics. The circuitry in the C 214 provides maximum SPL capability with minimum noise and the gold-plated XLR-type output connector offers loss-free signals.
The C 214 comes complete with a carrying case, windscreen, and spider suspension mount included.

Comments about AKG C 214 Professional Large Diaphram Condenser Microphone:
I replaced an old MXL v-series mic with the AKG c 214. First I compared the two mics in the store to make sure there was a noticeable improvement between the MXL and the AKG c 214. In the store, I could hear that the AKG c 214 had more clarity.
When I got the AKG c 214 home and started working with it, I discovered just how good this mic is. It reproduces the tonality of my voice and guitar far more faithfully than the MXL v-series. There's just no comparison.
Things are much easier with this mic. I should have upgraded years ago.
