AKG C414 XLS Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone

AKG C414 XLS

The AKG C414 XLS multipattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use. The C414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the legendary C414 B-ULS, the most popular AKG C414 version since 1971. Engineered for highest linearity and neutral sound, it has been the most versatile large-diaphragm microphone for decades.

Legendary quality

The C414 XLS is an astonishing microphone. Engineered for highest linearity and neutral sound, it maintains the reliable sonic character of the legendary C414 B-ULS (the longest-lived C414 model). While introducing some astonishing new features. The 5-pattern C414 has been one of the most universal and versatile large diaphragm microphones for decades — widely used for accurate, exquisitely detailed pickup of acoustic instruments. Now, the 414 XLS sets a new benchmark in microphone versatility by introducing a 9-pattern design. While achieving reference-quality results through leading-edge technology and state-of-the-art components.

Flexibility for any situation

The C414 XLS offers nine pickup patterns, enabling you to choose the perfect setting for every application. In addition to the five patterns traditionally offered by the C414 (omnidirectional, wide cardioid, cardioid, hyper cardioid, and figure eight). You also get four intermediate settings that let you dial in the best pattern to suit your environment. It also features an astoundingly low noise floor and a 152dB dynamic range, making the AKG 414 XLS ideal for any musical environment. A locking mode allows you to disable all of the C414 XLS's controls for live-sound applications and permanent installations, and a special "Peak Hold" LED displays even shortest overload peaks.
