AKG C 214
Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone

OUR PART #  C214


The AKG C214 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family. Like the C414, the C214 offers a 1" capsule on an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. 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 their C414 XLII.

Includes:

  • C214 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone
  • H85 universal shockmount
  • Windscreen
  • Metal carrying case

AKG C214 Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone Features:
