Best in its budget range.

I like it very, very, very much. Unfortunately, I need superior sound, so I ended up returning it and bought its big brother: the AKG c414 XLII. What you do need to know is it's easily the best one on it's budget range. So if you can't afford the 1200 dollar big brother, get this one.

Great mic to add to the Collection

So let me preface this by saying the ONLY reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I came from an (unmodded) MXL990s for years, and thought this would be a MASSIVE upgrade. It wasn't. That being said, I absolutely love this microphone, and when I do get another one, I can't see myself selling the 214. I just wanted to let everyone know that there are a lot of other upgrades that can be done in your signal chain, and to let you know that the microphone is only a small part of that. The highs can be a bit sibilant with this microphone, but that was something I was aware of beforehand, and something I kind of wanted. I'd say my style of singing is similar to that of Chris Martin, so having a mic that is a bit "bright" is something I was going for. I have mine paired with a Steinberg UR44, and it's an extremely quiet setup. I think I need to tweak my settings a little though because unless i have the 0dB pad on, I'm not getting the best results when I'm 12-16" away from the mic. Again, I think this is something I need to tweak in my setup, and not something directly related to the 214. Unfortunately, I have not gotten to try this on anything other than higher-register male vocals, but I have heard that it is a good mic for hip-hop, and will update my review (can I do that?) when I get a chance to record some rappers that I know. I was really tossed up between this and a used 414XLii, and I think I'm going to eventually scoop up the 414 as well. Some of my friends who work in studios told me I was dumb for thinking this could hold up against a C414, but I didn't know if it wold justify the extra $300-400 for the 414. I guess if I could do it again, I probably would've gone for the 414, but hey I guess that's life. I'm in no way unsatisfied with this purchase, but can definitely see myself upgrading sooner than if I had just gotten the 414 the first time. I don't necessarily need the polar patterns, but the 414 is industry standard, and the 214 is still going to be seen as a "budget" model. If you're on a budget, I would definitely recommend this mic, but if you can afford something a little more industry standard, I would definitely choose the latter. Again though, I still love this mic and don't plan on parting with it even if I choose to upgrade.

A clean, clear and crisp microphone.

If your looking for a professional high quality MIC to add to your collection or looking for your first professional MIC, this is it. Many are asking the question on what MIC do i buy, what pre-amp do i get etc.... I use this MIC with a PRO MPA II pre-amp made by ART. It sounds awesome. Its clear, clean and crisp. The MPA II has a low noise floor and works very well with this MIC. Any frequencies you don't like, you can cut them out during the mix phase. I do plan to buy another MIC pre because i want to have versatility in my studio but i assure you, this MIC is a smart buy that wont disappoint you. UPDATE!!! As i stated above, there is a low noise floor with the setup i have. After doing some recording, it dawned on me that i was using low quality MIC and patch cables from the pre-amp to the sound card. I purchased two Hosa pro series balanced TRS patch cables and a 15 ft MOGAMI gold analog reference cable. Doing so has given me virtually no noise at all in the recording. Cable quality matters, especially if you are a mix engineer and the details are important. I'm not endorsing these brands, merely sharing the results I've obtained with these purchases and this setup.

OFFERS VALUE AND VERSATILITY

The C 214 is versatile and affordable, offering the user options and accessories to alter the mic's performance. It ships with the H 85 shock-mount, W 214 foam windscreen and a sturdy carrying case. The mic has a fixed cardioid pattern, 20dB pad and a highpass filter that cuts the bass by 6 dB per octave, starting at 160 Hz. The pad lets the mic handle up to 156dB SPL — or 20 dB less when the pad isn't engaged. The AKG C214 is a well rounded do it all type of microphone that any studio owner must invest in.

I've tested a lot of mics

It was a struggle to determine just how much to spend on a mic for our start-up podcast. Everyone says start small, you can always upgrade. Well, my friends, I don't want to always be upgrading. You spend more, in the long run, that way. There are other places to save money, but your voice IS the podcast. I read reviews for weeks, you know what I found out, people that write these reviews get a commission if you buy the mic from there link. Which made my skeptical mind think, just how unbiased are they? So I went to several guitar stores in my area and tested out every single mic they had in the store. $40 mics all the way $5,000 mics. What I found out was this: you know imediately which ones you hate. It comes down to how the mic makes your voice sound. I repeatedly found that the AKG mics work best for my voice. The sound is rich and warm without any tweaking. (Remeber I was testing in a guitar store, all controls were the same, just the mic was different.) When I saw the price tags, I had a mini heart-attack. Then I thought about my studio needs. So I did a mental budget check and decided I'd rather spend the money on the mic since it's the most important piece of equipment for a podcast. I couldn't be happier. It's solidly made and should last me for years to come. If I need to buy another mic, it will for more hosts on the show, not to replace this one.

Case damaged, shipping box ok.

The case has a gnarly dent in it. Shipping package is just fine. This particular one should have been listed as a blemish. I paid $900 for a perfectly new one. Hopefully the microphone is in working order, if not I'll be returning it.

Worth every penny

It’s expensive but it’s worth every penny. Best upgrade decision in 10 years.
