Engineered excellence

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.

C214 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!
