One of best mics under 500$

12.09.2015
As its features;
It has a smart case, a windscreen, and a shockmount comes with. I personally didn't like the shockmount because it is made of plastic. But beside of it many can like it because it makes the total weight lighter. It has a pad 0 dB, -20 dB and it has HPF switch. These are good features for a 400? mic.
As its sound;
This is really a professional sounding microphone. Here is my recording chain: AKG c214---->True Systems P-Solo---->TC C300 gate/comp---->Creamware Scope---->Cubase.
And here is another recording chain in another professional studio:
Audio Technica AT4050---->GreatRiver ME1NV---->ProTools. The same singer sang. And both were listened with an AKG K240MK-II headphone and Genelec 8030a speakers. The result is C214 has a more detailed sound, much higher ends ( but nice ) and very air than of the AT4050 has. My friends also liked C214's sound. It has a very nice proximity effect also.
As its quality;
Very nice expect shouckmount.
If you have 500$ to pay for a good mic put this one into the higher places in terms of your choices. It will worth for every penny.

A Sensible Choice

17.02.2017
Bought this mic primarily for vocal recording. It feels like it lacks some high end but not a big issue. It comes with a durable and light case which is very nice. For the price range, it feels like a great piece of equipment.
