AKG C414 XLS Large-diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone
The AKG C414 XLS Condenser Microphone is equipped with nine selectable polar patterns (Omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper-cardioid, figure eight, and four intermediate pickup patterns), three attenuation levels, and three switchable bass-cut filters, the C414 XLS remains one of the most versatile condenser microphones for recording vocals, drums, and acoustic and amplified instruments in the studio or on stage. The 1″ edge-terminated, dual-diaphragm transducer combined with the low-noise electronic circuitry provides a wide dynamic range of 134 dB and can handle SPL up to 158 dB, for a detailed, linear, and natural tone. With full immunity to electromagnetic and electrostatic interference as well as high tolerance to humidity, the C414 XLS is well suited to withstand the rigors of demanding studio, stage, and broadcast applications. Special features include a peak-hold LED to alert you if overloading occurs, and a lock mode that prevents unintended changes to the microphone settings. The package includes a vibration-inhibiting shock mount, a pop filter, and a metal carrying case. The AKG C414 XLS comes with no warranty.
