A great mic IMO and any producer,artist,engineer can get good results from this mic! Now Ill just say, this mic is a mic that sounds really good on some stuff, and some voices or sources wont suit this mic! Not to say it'll sound bad, but certain sources will take alot if post production to sound good in the mix! Now why did I buy this and what would I reccomend this for? Majority of Male rap Vox will sound good on this mic, and this is a killer mic for drum overheads and room mics! Now, this mic will sound good on other things too, and can be a workhorse in alot of ways, but I reccomend it for those things! I have gotten good results on guitar and bass cabs, but there are other mics I would pick over this! Basically mics are flavours and eq tools, and the C214 flavour is nice on Male Rap vox and Drum OH's and Drum Rooms!

Compliments the low mids of a voice quite well with out too much of a roll off. Amazing shine in the mid highs with a slight boost giving an airy character. I love this mic.

I own a few AKG mics now. This mic is very affordable and provides a professional large sound. It does tend to smooth out the vocalist voice which works really great in certain instances. In comparison to a C414B XLII & C414 XLS its somewhere right inbetween both models. Try it with a monster p500 xlr cable and it sounds just right! Thats my take. RLM.

So this was the year I started to discover the wonderful world of recording and engineering. There is alot to learn and alot of money to be spent. So learning isn't a problem and money well as a musician in Canada there's not alot of that floating around! So i started researching vocal microphones. My vocalist kept going on about the AKG C414 - which is legendary! So i started researching and pricing the units. Then i stumbled across the AKG C214. Basically the same diaphram for the mic as the 414 without a polar pattern and it's not double sided. So after some consideration I said why not buy it! I've had the mic now for 6 months and it is very transparent. My vocalist has been extremely pleased with the vocals we have been able to produce straight into the board. It's incredibly sensitive to the most minute positioning of your mouth and the colour of your voice! In my opinion you can not go wrong by owning one of these mics! It has been a pleasant and affordable mic! And hey its made in the same factory as the 414 so that should say something about itself! Trevor
