AKG C 214 Side Address Condenser Microphone

Side address condenser microphone
MFR# 3185X00010

Product Description

The new AKG C 214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C 414 family.  It captures sound combining one side of the legendary C 414 dual-capsule system and AKG’s patented Back-Plate Technology which results in an outstanding performance close to the famous C 414 B-XLS.

Like the C 414 models, the C 214 is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound such as amplified guitars, with a sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well.  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. Besides, the C 214 will also work on low phantom power voltages from 12 up to 48 volts.

Additional features include an integrated suspension, a double mesh grill high RF immunity without affecting acoustics.  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.

Features:

  • AKG’s legendary 1” edge-terminated large diaphragm sound
  • Outstanding dynamic range (up to 156 dB SPL, ultra-low noise)
  • Roadworthy design
  • Integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise
  • Switchable 20 dB attenuation pad and low cut switch
  • Rugged double mesh grill for high RF immunity but unaffected acoustics
  • All-metal die-cast body with shock- and scratch-resistant finish
  • Spider-type shock mount included
  • Metal carrying case included
  • Designed, engineered and built in Vienna, Austria

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
