The AKG C 314 is a professional multi-pattern condenser microphone that captures every detail with the precision your creativity deserves. Whether you're recording in a large concert hall or a one-room studio, you want to capture the emotion and moment, not just the sound. With a full frequency range of 20Hz 20kHz and the lowest self-noise in its class, the C314 brings out the best in every nuance. Built on the rich heritage of the C414 XLS capsule, its dual computer-matched diaphragms guarantee the highest polar pattern accuracy, while the integrated suspension dramatically reduces noise for pure, faithful recordings.


• Four selectable polar patterns are perfect for every application: vocals, guitars, overheads, piano and more

• Lowest self noise - for the highest resolution in high-dynamic applications, such as miking classic instruments

• Overload detection LED indicates overly high sound pressure levels - know exactly when to use the pad

• Computer-matched diaphragms guarantee the highest polar pattern accuracy

• Integrated capsule suspension reduces mechanical noise and resonances

• 20 dB attenuation pad and bass-cut filter - for close-up recording and reducing the proximity effect

• All-Metal Grille and Rugged Housing - features a transparent double-mesh all-metal grille, which protects the magic inside and ensures an exceptionally high level of RF immunity
