Why We Love This Product!

Little Brother to the Legendary C 414!

If you haven't heard of AKG's C 414, you've no doubt HEARD it. That baby is in practically every big recording studio around. It's also a stage favorite. And a broadcast favorite. You get the picture. Why are we telling you all this? Because the AKG C 214 was made to be the cost-effective alternative to that high-end C 414, that is still made in Austria. So now all of us with a project studio can actually put that AKG sound to work on our recordings. Not a bad thing, right? Definitely.

You get heaps of that AKG large-diaphragm sound they're known for. And you've got an impressive 143dB dynamic range, so everything sounds uncompressed and natural. Vocals are going to be up front and in the mix when you record them through this one. And since there's a 20dB pad and a low-cut filter, you can use this mic in up to 156db situations — and if you're hip to dB ratings, that's INSANELY loud. NASA is probably out there using the AKG C 214 to record moon explosions or something. How would we know? But this thing can handle it.

The design built for the road, but the sound is sweet for the studio. And you get a carrying case, a windscreen, and a spider-type shockmount so you've got the pro set of accessories without the sort of dough you'd expect to pay for them. We're a fan.
