New AKG C 214 Single Capsule Condenser Microphone!

Published: Tue May 13, 2008  News Feed

The new AKG C214 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 AKG C214 features an integrated capsule suspension system that minimizes chassis-born 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 informed by feedback from 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 C214 uses the same one-inch diaphragm as the C414, the essence of that heralded C 414 sound has been captured in this newest model.”

The AKG C214’s double mesh, all-metal grill protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting acoustical performance.

The C214 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.

If the popularity of the AKG C 414 is anything to go by, then the AKG C 214 is certain to follow on its steps, as it can be seen as a more affordable version of the C 414, but with all the great sound quality and warmth you'd expect from a member of the C 414 family!
