The C 414 XL II from AKG is a large diaphragm condenser microphone ideal for solo vocal and instrumental applications. The mic offers 5 selectable polar patterns, giving you the perfect solution for any recording situation. The mic has an extremely high SPL capability, wide dynamic range, and low self-noise to produce clean, lifelike audio without overloads or distortion.

The mic's metal body and transformerless design make it immune to electrostatic and electromagnetic interference for trouble-free operation. The capsule is internally mounted on an elastic suspension to minimize vibration and handling noise. A set of 3 switchable bass cut filters and 3 pre-attenuation pads let you reduce low frequency pickup and increase the mic's headroom while recording loud sound sources. Bi-color LED indicators let you see the selected polar pattern and output overload at a glance. The mic comes complete with a metal road case, a shock mount, pop filter, and foam windscreen.

          Comments about AKG C 414 XL II Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

          This microphone is a godsend. As someone with very specific requirements, this mic delivers..big time. Now, bear in mind that I picked this mic the proper way-by going into B&H's mic room with a tech and testing out a bunch to find the one that suited me. This particular one fit like a glove because of where my voice sits. I have a very broad range, but am not a "deep" person necessarily. Rather, my "middle" was what I sought to bring out, and this microphone was THE one out of alllll the various ones tested, ..... There are other functions I haven't even tried yet, since I am a techno idiot and just want a reliable device that works. And this one does....
