Perfectly matched condenser mics for identical sensitivity and frequency range correlation.
The AKG C 414 XLII/ST stereo mic set was created because realistic stereo recordings require microphones with outstanding performance and excellent quality. They also require performance consistency and accurate localization from the pair of microphones being used. Therefore, every factory-matched AKG microphone pair has been created from thousands of individual microphones selected by AKG's sophisticated computer-aided matching method. The result is the highest possible correlation over the whole frequency range and virtually identical sensitivity for stunning, three-dimensional recordings.
AKG matched pairs consist of two microphones that are within 1dB to each other in sensitivity and also within 1dB to each other in the range of 300Hz to 8,000Hz of the individual frequency response when used in cardioid mode. The microphones are selected from a large quantity of individual microphones according to the described criteria by using a proprietary computer program.
Using the AKG C 414 XL II/ST matched microphone pair for stereo recordings in various techniques will provide a good and stable balance without frequency-dependent shifting of the stereo panorama.
The AKG C 414 II/ST stereo microphone set includes an H-50 stereo bar, 2 H-85 universal shock mounts, 2 SA 60 stand adapters, 2 W 414 windscreens, and a Soundtool hardshell road case to safely carry all of it between uses.
