The AKG C214 large diaphragm condenser mic is designed to deliver the legendary performance of their flagship C414 mic for home studios and independent artists. Combining one capsule of the C414's dual-capsule system with AKG's patented Back-Plate Technology, the C214 produces studio-quality recordings with outstanding performance.

Legendary C414 Performance at an Affordable Price

For decades, the C414 has been an industry standard used in the world's biggest recording studios. The C214 makes the C414's premium performance available to home studios and independent artists at a fraction of the cost. Back-Plate Technology and a single C414 capsule work together to capture sound comparable to the C414 XLS, with a sensitivity perfect for vocals, acoustic instruments and amplified tones.

Built to Last

Ruggedly constructed with premium components like a gold-plated XLR output, integrated suspension and a double-mesh grille, the C214 is designed to handle the rigors of studio use for years to come. Its solid build provides maximum SPL capability with low self-noise for clear, pristine recordings even when tracking loud sound sources like guitar amps or drum kits.

Versatile and Complete

With a 20dB pad and low-cut filter, the C214 can capture nuanced recordings of subtle sources as easily as it can handle the high SPLs of amplified instruments. Bundled with a durable carrying case, windscreen and spider suspension shockmount, the C214 comes ready to track in any situation right out of the box.
