Looking for a high-performance condenser microphone you can use for range of purposes around your studio? Check out AKG's versatile C414 XLS. It offers the same sonic performance as AKG's legendary C414-B-ULS, a highly popular mic used worldwide by professional studio engineers and admired for its detailed, accurate response. Nine selectable pickup patterns accommodate a wide variety of applications, from close-miking vocals or an acoustic guitar to capturing ambient room sounds. Three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels let you adjust for different sound sources and recording situations. For live concert use, all controls can be disabled easily so settings can't be changed accidentally.
Accurate sound and versatility
The C414 XLS has a wide dynamic range and features a large 1" diaphragm that can deliver finely detailed sound. A 20 dB attenuation switch lets the C414 handle high sound pressure levels, so you can use it for sources like drum kits, guitar amps and brass instruments.
The microphone comes with a windscreen and pop filter for vocal recordings. Also included is a universal shock mount. And all of this gear fits in the included foam-cushioned aluminum carry case.
