Customize your audio capture setup with the versatile C414 XLS Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from AKG. Based on AKG’s renowned C414 B-ULS microphone, this multipattern condenser mic delivers high linearity and neutral sound and has been specifically optimized for use in live sound applications such as onstage performances, as well as permanent installations such as recording studios. With its ability to reproduce beautifully detailed sound, The C414 XLS is an ideal choice for miking vocals and acoustic instruments.

Combining proven reference quality, leading-edge technology, and state-of-the-art components, the C414 XLS is a simple way to add professional polish to your audio project. Its condenser design enjoys enhanced sound sensitivity compared to dynamic mic options, allowing your vocals and instruments to sound more natural and detailed. The mic’s large diaphragm further optimizes vocals, ambient room audio, and acoustic instruments such as guitars. In addition, condenser mics are louder, capable of picking up wider frequency responses, and offer an expanded dynamic range—all factors that make the C414 XLS a great solution for demanding studio recording applications.

Find the perfect setting to capture optimal sound—no matter what your application. A choice of nine polar patterns allows you to customize what sounds the mic picks up. Select from three attenuation levels (-6,-12,-18dB) to adjust the mic for close-up recording or high-output sources (up to 158dB SPL).

Three switchable bass-cut filters enable lead vocals or solo instruments to shine in even the densest mixes. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. All controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.

Included in the box with the AKG C414 XLS Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone are a universal shock mount for reduced handling and mechanical noise, a pop filter and windscreen to reduce noise from breath or plosives, and a metal carrying case for safe transport and storage when the mic isn’t in use.
