“The C214 holds the distinction of being the top-selling recording microphone in the United States, and the C314 is the latest model in this family of microphones,” says Erich Gaertner, product line manager, AKG. “We expect the C314 to achieve even greater success thanks to its affordability, versatility and world-class audio quality.”
Other models with the new C314 in the mic family include the C214, C414 B-XL II and C414 B-TL II, among others. All are condenser mics designed specifically for recording applications.
—Dual-diaphragm capsule with four selectable polar patterns.
—Each of the diaphragms is matched to guarantee high polar pattern accuracy.
—The same C414 XLS gold-plated membrane for high linearity and neutral sound.
—Overload LED detection display, which indicates overly high sound pressure levels. It allows the user to make adjustments to the microphone setup rather than in the recorded track.
—Integrated capsule suspension, reducing mechanical noise and resonances.
—A double-mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting the mic’s acoustical performance.
—20 dB attenuation pad and bass-cut filter for close-up recording and reduction of the proximity effect.
—Included accessories: Rugged carrying case, windscreen, spider suspension mount and stand adapter.
