The C314 from AKG is a professional large-diaphragm, multi-pattern condenser microphone designed to capture every detail of your sound, whether you’re in the studio or on the stage, setting up audio for a small room or a large concert hall, or miking vocals or instruments. No matter what your space or application, the C314’s user-friendly, accessible features make it a seamless addition to any sound setup.

Bring out the nuances of your audio with the C314’s full frequency range of 20Hz – 20kHz. Its dual computer-matched, 1” diaphragm capsule guarantees stringent polar pattern accuracy. The integrated suspension reduces noise and resonance for pristine and accurate sound. The result is a mic that delivers the lowest possible self-noise in its class for high resolution in dynamic applications such as miking classical instruments.

Whether it’s cardioid, supercardioid, omnidirectional, or figure-8 polar patterns, the versatile C314 offers myriad ways to get the most natural sound from vocals as well as instruments ranging from piano and acoustic guitars to electric guitars, drums, overheads, and more. The supercardioid option reduces drum spill, whereas the figure-8 balances out two vocalists.

Professional-quality features equip you for professional-caliber audio. To combat the characteristic fragility of a condenser mic, the C314 sports an overload detection LED to alert you if input levels are too high, so you can enjoy the full range of the mic’s dynamics and only engage its attenuation pad when necessary. The mic’s bass-cut filter minimizes rumbles, vibrations, and loud sounds, while its 20 dB attenuation pad enables close-up recording and reduces the proximity effect to achieve balanced recordings.

Great results start at the beginning. After going through a painstaking design process, this mic goes through a detailed manufacturing process that uses premium materials and components. A transparent double-mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule’s interior while enhancing RF immunity. Its rugged, scratch-resistant housing makes this studio mic ready for the road.

Included with the C314 are a universal shock mount, a stand adaptor, a windscreen, and a metal carrying case.
