AKG's C214 is a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C414 family. It features rugged, roadworthy construction, intergrated suspension, switchable attenuation pad and low cut, high RF immunity, and more. The C214 is versatile: excellent for everything from screaming guitar cabs to subtle vocals.
Additionally, the microphone offers a 20 dB Attenuation pad, 13 dB noise floor, and a low cut switch‐all in an elegant but rugged package. The C214 will also work on low phantom power voltages from 12 up to 48 volts. The circuitry in the C 214 provides maximum SPL capability with minimum noise and the gold-plated XLR-type output connector offers loss-free signals. The C 214 comes complete with carrying case, windscreen, and spider suspension mount included.
