The latest studio microphone offering from AKG, the C214, is reviewed in this month’s Resolution Magazine. “Is it a decent microphone in its own right? Unequivocally yes.”

The new C 214 is designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end, industry-leading C 414 family. Like the C 414 models, the C 214 is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound such as amplified guitars, with a sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well.

“Moving to Acoustic guitar showed that both microphones (the C 414 and the C 214) capture transient and harmonic detail well but the tonal characteristics so obvious with speech were even more obvious here. Whereas the 414 delivered a neutral, honest representation of the guitar, the 214 was a little bit more forward sounding and seemed to exaggerate the fundamental tones a little more. But here’s the thing. I actually preferred the sound of the 214 not just because of the voicing in its response but also, I think, because of the difference in rear rejection. In some respects, this made the 214 sound more like I’d expect an omni microphone to sound, pulling in a little more of the room sound”.

“…it’s a well engineered, useful microphone that deserves to succeed at what is a very crowded price point”.

To read the full review, pick up the November/December Issue of Resolution Magazine (V7.8).
