"An elegant multi-pattern, large-diaphragm addition to AKG's back-electret family, filling the hole left by the discontinued C4000 very nicely".
Meet the C314 professional multi-pattern condenser microphone, the latest sibling from one of the industry’s most widely used studio and stage microphone families. The C314 sits between the fixed-cardioid C214 and the C414 XLS. Sound On Sound review the C314 in the new issue of the magazine, praising it in particular for its “excellent build quality”, “good technical specifications” and “fine sound quality”.
“As a versatile and high-quality multi-pattern mic, the C314 has a lot going for it. The build quality is excellent, it is supplied with a useful set of accessories, it has a high maximum SPL capability, and impressively low-noise output”.
“As a model aimed at live and studio applications, it’s sensibly priced around £200 less (on the street) than a C414 XLS, which represents good value for money, making it an attractive option to many. I can see the C314 becoming a very popular option and would look very favourably upon it as an excellent, versatile workhorse mic”.
The full review can be found in the January 2016 issue of Sound On Sound magazine on sale now. The AKG C314 is also available now at £599 RRP inc VAT. A matched stereo pair is also available at £1319 RRP inc VAT.
