The C214 professional 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 20 dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156 dB 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.

Features:

  • AKG's Legendary 1" Edge-Terminated Large Diaphragm Sound
  • Outstanding Dynamic Range (up to 156 dB SPL, Ultra-Low Noise)
  • Roadworthy Design
  • Integrated Suspension to reduce mechanical Noise
  • Switchable 20 dB Attenuation Pad and Low Cut Switch
  • Rugged double mesh Grill for high RF immunity but unaffected Acoustics

  • Spider-type Shock Mount included
  • Metal Carrying Case included

My new go-to large diaphragm condenser!

The 214 is such an amazing and clear sounding condenser! First session I used it on EVERYTHING and it absolutely rocked it. Acoustic guitar, vocals, drum overheads, and room tone, this mic can handle just about anything. The shockmount it comes with is really nice and the volume pad and lo cut are super useful. This mic is a must have for any recording studio!

a crisp, clear sound for a range of uses

I use this mic at work (I do voice-overs) and just love it. It's got a warm, crisp sound, with very low noise. I find, with the right placement, I do very little post-production touch-ups - a bit of EQ (but that's because of my VOICE, not the mic), and slight compression. I was quite surprised to find out how inexpensive it is. I'm looking to get one for recording music - seems like a good drum AND vocal mic!

LETS FACE IT, MUSIC RECORDING CAN GET EXPENSIVE. LUCKILY YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP QUALITY TO ACHIEVE AWESOME RESULTS. THATS WERE THIS BABY COME IN. A NOTCH BELOW ONE OF THE BADDEST MIC'S IN THE MARKET TODAY (BXL 414 CL). ALTHOUGH THE DIAPRAM ISN'T THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL THE SOUND IT PROVIDES IS IMPRESSIVE.

This is definitely one of the best condensor mics in it's price range. Very clear sound and sturdy construction. With a mic like this, your next step in quality would be a $1000 mic. This is a hands-on product review by Tamir @ Sam Ash Edison
