Product Description

C214ENGINEERED EXCELLENCEfor recording of lead vocals and solo instruments in studio and on stage

The C214 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.

Cost-Effective Alternative

The new C 214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C 414 family. This new microphone uses the same 1-inch dual-capsule as the legendary C 414 in a single-diaphragm, cardioid-only design. The result is a class-leading performance close tothat of the famous C414 B-XLS.

Legendary Large-Diaphragm Sound

The C 214 has AKG’s legendary large-diaphragm sound and is capable of incredible 143 dB dynamic range for uncompressed, life-liketransients. The C 214’s edge-terminated capsule delivers a highly-detailed, up-front sound that brings out every nuance of any voice orinstrument. Thanks to its switchable 20-dB attenuation pad and low cut filter, the C 214 can be used in sound fields as high as 156 dB SPL –so it can be used on stage for close-up miking for even very loud applications like drum overheads, guitar amps or high-output brass.

AKG's Roadworthy Construction

The C 214 features an integrated capsule suspension that reduces mechanical noise and resonances for even greater sonic accuracy.The double mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting acoustical performance. The C 214 hasa roadworthy construction quality with a modern scratch-resistant finish, a dent-resistant, metal grille and a gold-plated XLR-type output.

What's in the Box

The C 214 comes complete with carrying case, windscreen, and spider-type shock mount.

Nice Sounding Microphone.
Hylophone
With the Profire 610, Logic, and this mic, that's what it amounts to.

Nice Sounding Microphone. Interestingly I find it to have a similar frequency response to many stage-vocal condensers in that it has a distinctive curve meant to flatter its sound source--flat until 1000hz. This is not a neutral microphone but rather a microphone that accentuates. Your opinion may vary but I think it sounds nice. When the bass cut is selected, and without the -20db pad, it reminds me of a Neumann KMS 104. AKG makes nice mics and for the price it is a nice addition to a collection. I bought this microphone to use in conjunction with a Shure Beta-57 on a guitar cab for live work but also recording. The price, pad, and the frequency curve were its selling points. But it sounds good on anything with a voice.

I don't know what the other guy was talking about that gave a bad review. I rap and produe Hip-Hop, and everyone that has heard reordings done with this mic ask what studio was it done in. I have to tell them I have a studio at home. With the Profire 610, Logic, and this mic, that's what it amounts to. There is a need for some slight Eq, due to the fact that it records low-pass more so than hi-pass, but I do the EQ in Logic. Everyone agrees that my productions sound professsional. With an HD sound card and this mic, the sky is the limit! If you're short on cash, but want professional quality, the c214 is the way to go.

Love this mic. It definitely gives me the high quality sound I expected. Ive done rap and R&B vocals with the Akgc214 and I must say the vocals come out crisp and warm. It was between this and the Audio Technicka 4050 which is def a good match up! It really came down to preference but something about the Akg just had that edege. If you building a home studio and you want a PRO sound this is the way to go. Peace

The clear vocals are everything I needed to take my studio to another level. I had another AKG but this one is perfect.

I shopped for a large diaphragm condenser mike with the cardiod pattern.
It has turned out to be sensitive and accurate at least up to 24" away, and the end voices, tenor and bari are as loud (or soft) as they're supposed to be...Thus...good cardiod pattern. We'll use it in shows. The damper nest-mount is a nice included feature with the wind filter included in the kit. I was concerned that I couldn't use my present mic boom, but discovered that the adapter plug will unscrew to open a threaded 5/8 socket that fits the mic boom perfectly. You don't need an adapter.
Don't know how it'll work with instruments but, for us, that's irrelevant. It fits the excellent reputation that AKG still has.

These mic's have professional sound quality at a reasonable price. The mic's seem pretty versatile. I use one for vocals amd one to record my acoustic guitar.
