The AKG C314 is a new dual-diaphragm condenser microphone featuring super-low self-noise and dynamic range, a flat, high linear frequency response and neutral sound. According to AKG the C214 is the best selling recording mic in the US, so little wonder it wanted to fill the gap between the 214 and the legendary C414 (and its modern variants). Key features include: four selectable polar patterns; the same C414 XLS gold-plated membrane for “high linearity and neutral sound”; overload LED Detection Display, which indicates ‘too loud’ SPLs; and a usual array of accessories. Also of note is the integrated capsule suspension, reducing mechanical noise and resonances. A double-mesh, all-metal grille protects the capsule and ensures high RF immunity without affecting the microphone’s acoustical performance. A 20dB attenuation pad and bass-cut filter is included for close-up recording and reduction of the proximity effect.
