  • The C214 large-diaphragm condenser microphone has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family.

  • A switchable 20dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156dB SPL.
  • A switchable bass-cut filter allows close-up recording with almost no proximity effect.
  • The C214 captures sound by combining one capsule of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and the patented AKG Back-Plate Technology, resulting in an outstanding performance close to the famous C414 XLII.

AKG The C214 is a large diaphragm microphone designed as an affordable alternative to the classic C414 XLS.

The C 214 from AKG has the same 1" capsule, fixed cardioid pattern, lowcut and 20 dB att. switches.

The C-214 can also handle a high sound pressure level (156 dB SPL with att. switch on) and is therefore both a widespread choice for vocals, but also a good choice for, for example, guitar amps or ?overhead? (

AKG The C214 is an exceptionally good studio microphone that offers unprecedented performance for the price. The microphone is designed, developed and built in Vienna, Austria, and comes packaged with shock mount, windscreen and carrying case.
