Great product, records brass instruments in amazing quality~



Prefer the XLII for vocals


I hadn't realized the XLS is a little less preferred for vocals, but I could still use it



The sound this device captures will never disappoint


I would say this is my favorite in my collection of microphones for a couple of reasons: the sound the C414 XLS records is ridiculously amazing and accurate; there is so much customization with the three different switches for polar pattern, attenuation, noise floor that you will always record the perfect sound that you are looking for, and I like how lightweight this microphone is.

Great product in stock, not just in the catalog.



Highly recommended for the studio vocalist.


A great step up from my c214. Filter options and response to voice dynamics is better than expected for the price.



I would buy this product again indeed


I found it excellent, it's a high quality product. We are using it in a record studio successfully



I recommend to any professional studio


I have been using this microphone for three years now and it still amazes me. The option to have multi-pattern is great and is useful in every type of situation u can possibly think of. i especially like the hyper cardioid for vocals in case of "wandering vocalists". The bi-directional allows two singers to sing at the same time, one at the back and one at the front (judging that the vocal booth is big enough). What i like most about this mic is the SPL. The subject can be very loud that you are recording and there is no distortion or overload. When singers raise their voices, its clean and clear without any unwanted distortion.
