The AKG C314 professional multi-pattern condenser microphone belongs to one of the industry’s most widely used studio and stage microphone families, designed for enthusiasts and professionals alike. It has advanced features that help artists fine-tune their signature sound, such as four selectable polar patterns, a high class, self-noise level and an overload detection LED. Using the same one-inch dual diaphragm capsule as the C414 XLS, musicians, engineers and producers can have the confidence that their audience will experience every subtle nuance as it was intended.
Realistic stereo recordings require microphones with outstanding performance and excellent quality. It also requires performance consistency and accurate localization from the pair of microphones. Therefore, every factory-matched pair of C314s is created from thousands of individual microphones selected by AKG‘s sophisticated computer-aided matching method. The result is the highest possible correlation over the whole frequency range and virtually identical sensitivity for stunning, three-dimensional recordings.
