AKG C314 press release

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.

Designed for enthusiasts and professionals alike, the C314 has advanced features that help artists fine-tune their signature sound including four selectable polar patterns, the lowest self-noise in its class, and an overload detection LED.

Using the same one-inch dual diaphragm capsule as the C414 XLS, musicians, engineers and producers can have the confidence that their audience will experience every subtle nuance as it was intended.


  • Four selectable polar patterns - perfect for every application
  • Lowest self noise for highest resolution in high dynamic applications
  • Overload detection LED indicates overly high sound pressure levels
  • Computer-matched diaphragms to 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 reduction of the proximity effect
