Sennheiser e 914

Small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone

Overview

Our take on the Sennheiser e 914

The Sennheiser e 914 provides the accuracy and fast transient response that makes condenser microphones so useful, plus it has some extra tricks up its sleeve. It's ideal for live recordings and studio work that require precise detail. Use the e 914 for acoustic guitars, cymbals, percussion, and more. Place it overhead for recording orchestras, or over the center of a grand piano.
