The C 414 XL II is the successor of the famous C 414 B-TL II. It shows the unique sonic signature of the highly sought after AKG C 12 which enables lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. The unrivalled up-front sound is also well-known for distant miking applications like classic music recording or drum ambience miking. The XL II version differs from the XLS version in one major respect - the capsule. Both, the slight presence boost and the impressive spatial reproduction is similar to the legendary C 12 microphones. For over 60 years, leading musicians and engineers have used legendary AKG microphones to capture their sound so their audience hears every nuance. The C 414 family has been one of the world?s most widely-used and respected studio and stage microphones in audio history. AKG has continually set new benchmarks for useful features, improved technical specifications and ease of use to answer requests from ever-demanding recording studios, broadcast stations and audio engineers.

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.
