Overview

Matched pair of the most widely-used and respected microphones.

The legendary C414 is a tool found in most recording studios and has been used on thousands of hit records; it’s been on stage with artists of every musical genre and is also used by leading broadcast facilities the world over. The C414 family has been one of the world’s most widely-used and respected studio and stage microphones in audio history. New useful features and even greater ease of use are the answer to the demands from their ever–growing customer base all over the world.

The new C414 XLS and the C414 XLII offer nine pickup patterns that enable it to choose the perfect setting for every application. For live-sound applications and xed installations, all controls can be disabled easily for trouble-free use, and the peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. Both mics have three switchable bass cut filters as well as three pre-attenuation levels that allow lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed in even the densest mixes.

The C414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the legendary C414 B-ULS, the longest-lived C414 model. Engineered for the highest linearity and neutral sound, it is the most universal and versatile large diaphragm microphone released in decades. Widely used for accurate, beautifully detailed pickup of any acoustic instrument, the new C414 XLS combines proven reference quality, leading-edge technology and state-of-the-art components.

The C414 XLII is the successor of the famous C414 B-TL II. It shows the unique sonic signature of the highly sought-after AKG C12, which enables lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. The unrivaled up-front sound is also well known for distant miking applications like classical music recording or drum ambiance miking.

The C414 comes complete with everything you need to create great sound recordings, including: a carrying case, a pop filter, a windscreen, and a spider-type shock mount. In addition, AKG offers both the XLII and XLS in stereo sets. The stereo sets are created by AKG’s sophisticated matching method for stunning, three- dimensional recordings.
