Revel in the classic styling and nine polar patterns of the AKG C414 XLS classic large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Nine pickup patterns allow you a wide range of versatile options for any application, whether you use it for live performances, studio recordings or rehearsals. Select the polar pattern on the microphone itself with three easy-to-use buttons that let you scroll through various settings. Three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels let you adjust the microphone for your particular sound.
A Peak Hold LED displays even shortest overload peaks so you can adjust your sound to the microphone's settings. Avoid feedback, overloading the preamp or creating too much noise when you keep an eye on the LED. The dynamic range of this microphone is an incredible 152 decibels, which makes it hard to overload this microphone in the first place.
A proven reference quality, decades of engineering and design, and high-quality parts combine to make this a microphone that last a long time while withstanding the rigors of regular use. The C414 XLS comes complete with carrying case, pop filter, windscreen and spider-type shock mount for sturdiness.
