An affordable condenser that can handle high SPLs.

AKG's industry-leading C414 microphones are already a permanent fixture in the world's biggest recording studios and a highly respected workhorse for independent artists, broadcasting, and on-stage miking as well.

The new C214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C414 family. It captures sound combining one side of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and AKG's patented Back-Plate Technology, which results in an outstanding performance very close to the famous C414 B-XLS.

Like the C414 models, the C214 is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound such as amplified guitars, with a sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well. Additionally, the microphone offers a 20dB Attenuation pad, 13dB noise floor, and a low cut switch — all in an elegant but rugged package.

Additional features include an integrated suspension, a double mesh grill high RF immunity without affecting acoustics. The circuitry in the C214 provides maximum SPL capability with minimum noise and the gold-plated XLR-type output connector offers loss-free signals.

The C214 comes complete with carrying case, windscreen, and spider suspension mount included.

AKG C214 Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic Features:

  • AKG's Legendary 1" Edge-Terminated Large Diaphragm Sound
    Outstanding Dynamic Range (up to 156dB SPL, Ultra-Low Noise)
    Roadworthy design

  • Really Great Sounding Mic - I'm very happy with it

    As reviewed by David Press on 2/21/2012

    I'm using this mic for home studio recordings, mostly vocals. I've only had the mic for a few days but i find other reviews very helpful so i want to make sure to provide my input and if I let to much time go by I'll never get around to writing one myself. To be honest I'm not an expert on mics. I was simply looking for something as an upgrade to the MXL 990 i've been using and this mic was highly recommended from the guy at GC. I had not done a lot of research but since the GC guys had such strong favoritism of this mic over the others and it doesn't cost that much money i figured it was worth a try. Right away i did a side by side comparison with the MXL 990 and yup definitely worth the extra cost. This mic has a very nice clean rich sound. I like the shock mount design with a quick release twist. Seems like a well put together mic. I'm very happy with it.

  • Didn't live up to the hype

    As reviewed by Alexander Pollitt on 11/3/2013

    I bought one of these mics on the recommendation of the sales assistant and having read a lot of positive reviews. My first impression using the mic was that it gave a really lush warm sound to vocals. It has the usual proximity effect so I recorded the vocals at a safe distance of 12-18". At this distance the mic was still overly emphasizing silences which was a bit of a concern. The real problems started when I tried to mix the vocals in to the rest of the track. I had to do some heavy EQing to get the vocals to sit in the mix without sounding too muddy. And then if I tried adding any kind of effects, even the subtlest of reverbs for example, then the vocal ended up muddy again. Overall then, despite many people raving about this mic, for me it was not a winner. I auditioned a couple of other mics and eventually settled on the TLM102. It's not pretty, but it is fairly accurate, requires little EQ to make it sound natural, sits well in the mix, and happily lets me add effects without losing clarity. Your mileage may vary.
