Sovereign microphone at fair price

Matthias424, 20.11.2009
Already the first impression when unpacking is positive: the microphone is in a generously dimensioned stable case safe and also visually appealing packed. The processing of the microphone is perfect. Only the bayonet closure of the elastic suspension seems to consist of cheaper plastic and leaves a little doubt in its longevity.

The sound quality fully meets the expectations of a microphone of this price class. In combination with a high-quality pre-amplifier, absolutely convincing recordings can be achieved.

Great, I find that a switchable directional characteristics of the big brother C414 was renounced. This is a feature that I can easily do without my recordings. I prefer a good quality renal characteristics at half price.

Conclusion: I would buy the microphone without hesitation once again. Price / performance is great!

Yes

Karl-F, 28.12.2009
I have been working with a 414 TL II for a long time and I like to use its variable characteristics (eight for MS stereo, for example), but I am also very impressed by its neutral sound in normal (kidney) mode.

When I needed another large diaphragm, the Neumann 103 was at the top of my wish list (I've got a pair of 184s, which are really great), but once again the Neo-men's Preispolitik frightened me and I have to say I have it Not regret.

What you get here from AKG (for the price of a Neumann spider!) Is really more than useful, great micro for language and singing, round, present, and yet not too high, surely synonymous for various other applications, neat spider , Pretty suitcase, best workmanship, class. The only restriction is the missing switching possibilities, which one from the 414 knows, who does not need, is served here best.

If the recording still does not sound, this micro as a cause can be excluded in any case already times. Recommendation for all large diaphragm inserts, absolutely try, I consider this microphone for mercilessly undervalued
