The C414 microphone has legendary status. Well known for capturing overheads, acoustic guitars and vocals. It's got the gold grill so it's all bling - AKG still know how to make a microphone. The build quality is solid and the tone is always representative of that crystal C414 sound. The C414 XLII multi-pattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.
The C414 XLII version differs from the C414 XLS version in one major respect - the capsule. The C414 XLII's slight presence boost and impressive spatial reproduction are both similar to the legendary AKG C12 microphone from 1953.
