The AKG C214 is aprofessional large diaphragm condenser microphonethat has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family. Like the C414, the C214 offers a one-inch supreme capsule in an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. A switchable attenuation pad of 20dB allows recording sources up to 156dB SPL. A switchable bass cut filter allows for close-up recording without any proximity effects.
The C214 captures the sound by combining a capsule from the legendary C414 double-capsule system and the patented AKG Back-Plate technology, resulting in exceptional performance near the famous C414 XLII. The C214 is an ideal microphone for the recording of solo voices and solo instruments in studio and on stage.
