    AKG C214 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Product Description

    The AKG C214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C414 family. AKG's C414 microphones are already a permanent fixture in the world's biggest recording studios and a highly respected work horse for independent artists, broadcasting, and on-stage miking as well. Drawing on the C414's design, the affordable C214 captures sound combining one side of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and AKG's patented Back-Plate Technology, which results in an outstanding performance similar to the famous C414 B-XLS.

    - Outstanding Dynamic Range (up to 156 dB SPL, Ultra-Low Noise)
    - Roadworthy Design
    - Integrated Suspension to reduce mechanical Noise
    - Switchable 20 dB Attenuation Pad and Low Cut Switch
    - Rugged double mesh Grill for high RF immunity but unaffected Acoustics
    - All-metal Die-cast body with shock- and scratch-resistant Finish
    - Spider-type Shock Mount included
    - Metal Carrying Case included

    Like the C414 models, the C214 is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound such as amplified guitars, with a sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well. Additionally, the microphone offers a 20 dB Attenuation pad, 13 dB noise floor, and a low cut switch--all in an elegant but rugged package. Besides, the C214 will also work on low phantom power voltages from 12 up to 48 volts.

    Additional features include an integrated suspension, a double mesh grill high RF immunity without affecting acoustics. The circuitry in the C214 provides maximum SPL capability with minimum noise and the gold-plated XLR-type output connector offers loss-free signals.
