Engineered excellence

for recording of lead vocals and solo instruments in studio and on stage

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 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.

Aquiles Priester about AKG microphones:
Aquiles Priester

„I've been working with AKG microphones for over 10 years. All my records and DVDs (award-winning) have the signature of the AKG sound. The definition of the depth of my drums, the weight of my bass drum, the brilliance of my snare drum, and the crystal-clear sound of my cymbals, are directly connected to the choice of my microphones. Regardless of the musical style, the sound of the drums is what really matters, and my sound is AKG.“
