More about AKG’s C214 Microphone

The C214 has been built with hand-picked components and crafted specifically for studio recording. It can also be used on stage for close-up miking for even very loud applications like drum overheads, guitar amps, or high-output brass. Every part of the C214 has been selected for reliability and sonic accuracy. Inheriting the same 1-inch dual-capsule on an integrated suspension as the legendary C414, the C214 is an affordable alternative that integrates pro-level components in a single-diaphragm, cardioid-only design. Its electronic circuitry has been redesigned for optimal dynamic range and frequency response. Its transducer element uses AKG’s patented Back-Plate technology, while its large diaphragm is gold-sputtered on one side, protecting against local shorting.

The C214 is capable of an incredible 143 dB (A-weighted) dynamic range for uncompressed, life-like transients. Its edge-terminated capsule delivers a detailed, up-front sound that brings out every nuance of any voice or instrument. Its switchable 20-dB attenuation pad lets you record loud sources of up to 156dB SPL. Its switchable bass-cut filter minimizes any proximity effects.

The C214 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. This microphone has a roadworthy construction with a modern scratch-resistant finish, a dent-resistant grille, and a gold-plated XLR-type output.
