AKG Showcases C 214 Microphone InAKG Showcases C 214 Microphone In the Tradition Of Its Legendary C 414 the Tradition Of Its Legendary C 414

AKG’s legendary C 414 microphone needs no introduction. It’s a tool found in most recording studios and has been used on thousands of hit records and has been onstage with artists across every musical genre and is also used by leading broadcast facilities the world over.

The new C 214 offers a single-capsule, cardioid-only design that delivers class-leading performance with the same dual-capsule as the C 414, but using only one diaphragm instead of two. Thanks to its 20-dB attenuation pad and AKG’s ultra-low noise electronic design, the C 214 can be used in sound fields as high as 156 dB SPL. The C 214 features an integrated capsule suspension system that minimizes chassis-borne noise and resonances for even greater sonic accuracy.

“The AKG C 414 has been successful for more than 30 years due to continuous improvement of technical specifications, useful features and ease-of-use. The evolution of the C 414 has been accepted by recording studios, broadcast stations, and live sound engineers,” explains Thomas Stubics, Product Manager at AKG. “Our new C 214 was designed as a budget-friendly alternative to the leading-edge C 414 family. Because the C 214 uses the same one-inch diaphragm as the C 414, the essence of that heralded C 414 sound has been captured in this newest model.”

The C 214’s double mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting acoustical performance. The C 214 has road-tough construction quality with a modern scratch-resistant finish, a dent-resistant, metal grille and a gold-plated XLR-type output. It comes complete with a spider-type shock mount, windscreen, and metal carrying case.
