A staple within the professional audio industry, meet the AKG C414 XLII Multi-Pattern Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone. This one’s a classic for a reason. Bringing superior sound quality and the ability to pick up minute details, it’s set to become one of the most versatile mics in your studio.

We’re bringing the C414 microphone to Australia, for everyday use and your once-in-a-lifetime productions. Made for capturing vocals, piano, drums, acoustic guitars and amplified instruments in the studio or on stage. Encapsulated by a rugged all-metal body that stands up to the rigours of the music business.

Never miss a moment.

Capture every detail with the AKG C414, Australia

Sensitive enough to capture the little details, the AKG C414 with a large diaphragm is one of the OGs of condenser mics. It’s built to offer the widest possible frequency response, and to accurately vibrate with sound waves.

That means it puts noise performance in the spotlight. It also means you can count on larger-than-life, vibrant sounds that might just make history.

This mic closely mirrors the sound of the legendary AKG C12. A slight high-frequency rise at 3 kHz and above helps compensate for the natural loss of high frequencies that occurs at a distance, making the C414 XLII a smart choice for miking vocals and instruments positioned far away.

Your best work yet, featuring the AKG C414

Grab the AKG C414 in Australia for its well-thought-out features, including 9 selectable polar patterns that provide the perfect sonic capture for every application. Plus, with 3 switchable bass-cut filters to reduce wind noise, stage vibration or proximity effect, this mic gets the job done - anywhere. Lose the harsh overtones. Lose the unwanted background noise. Find every nuance in your performance.

Amplify the possibilities with the AKG C414 Condensor Mic (Matched Pair Stereo Set).
