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.

Great mic!

I've heard awesome stuff about this mic before I even thought about buying. Then I tested it at my friends studio and it's probably all you would need to record a very solid professional vocal track at a home studio.

Top microphone in the 300-400 Eur value range in my opinion!

The package comes with a solid case and a well-made shock-mount.

Very easy to set up, the only thing I would say it's when you're trying to unplug the mic cable from the microphone, you really have to press hard and sometimes the cable gets kinda stuck in the mic, so you should be careful not to the damage it. But it probably also depends on the cable itself!

I would and I will recommend this microphone to anyone. This is an amazing value for money, a really good job from the AKG guys!
