Product Description

The AKG C214 Condenser Microphone is designed as an inexpensive alternative to other higher-end AKG Microphones.
The C214 captures sound combining one side of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and AKG’s patented Back-Plate Technology which results in an outstanding performance.

The AKG C214 is capable of handling the rigors of high sound pressure levels like those you will find when recording guitar amplifiers, while maintaining a sensitivity level perfect for vocals and softer instruments. This microphone boasts a 20 dB Attenuation pad, 13 dB noise floor, and a low cut switch—all in an elegant but rugged package. Besides, the C214 will also work on low phantom power voltages from 12 up to 48 volts.

Available as a Single Microphone or as a Stereo Set Matched Pair.

I’m not a professional producer, but I am a professional musician and for me this sounds awesome

Product Review

This was my first condenser microphone that I have purchased for my small in home studio. After months of research I decided upon this mic based off the price and versatility of the product. I am a full time guitarist and vocalist but have never been much on the production side, pretty much saying I know what sound I am looking for. I use this mic mainly for vocals and I’ve got to say that the recordings sound so good out of the mic that I really don’t have to do much as far as mixing goes which I love. This mic has definitely helped boost my confidence in my recording ability and I know that if the track doesn’t sound great it’s from my personal error not the mic. Overall would definitely recommend

Best mic you can buy for your money, did a full 3 song EP with it that now has over 300,000 streams on spotify, you can ABSOLUTELY get professional industry standard results with this thing. Well worth the every penny!

Very good Upgrade for me

Product Review

This was an upgrade to my home studio vocal mic collection. I've been using an AT2035 and always had to use EQ and shaping (Izotope Nectar) on male vocals. The last recording session the singer and I A/B'd the AKG and the AT mics. The AKG won. I also find I don't need Izotope Nectar with the AKG

Manage your Expectations

Product Review

For a starter mic, you will get the most for your money with this mic, and at this price point. If you're a little more serious, and looking for your second or third microphone upgrade, you really need to invest more money and shoot higher in the 1k+ range. In my not so humble opinion, the microphone purchase is certainly among the top 5 tools within every pro and enthusiast's setup, so consider this wisely before deciding upon this as your one and only microphone. I find it works best in a complementary fashion, which is why you need to have at least the AKG C414 (or Neumann, Manley, and others that manufactured high end mic equivalent) already in your mic locker, or being bought in tandem with. You'll definitely get good mileage out of that, so with that in mind, i award it a cautionary 3 stars(satisfies standard expectations) to those who are amassing more experience and needing something more high end. For the demographic that targets a starter microphone for a home studio, 4 stars

Disappointed

Product Review

I wanted this to be a really good mic. Prior to this mic I had an AKG Perception 100. It was my first Condensor mic and I was hoping this would be an upgrade. This mic has the same sibilance issues I ran into with the perception. I kept it for a few months because I didn't want to believe my ears, but ended up selling it. I don't recommend this for lead male rap vocals.

Buy two of these babies!

These mics are built like tanks.

It's basically a 414 but it's cardioid-only. Perfect for most of us home recording enthusiasts who want to get some really clean and professional-sounding tracks.

The manual is really great. Easy to read.

Great! I use two of these as overheads for drums. Just perfect! Sounds great on vocals, too...you just have to take away some of the high end and you're good to go.
