A bit flat
Eli Thorne, 18.06.2020
I tested this at home in my (not entirely soundproofed) studio. I work as a voice actor from home, and so i'm used to how my room sounds, but this came over as a bit compressed and flat to me. Especially the high end seemed dulled when compared to other condensors. Apart from that, I find it a bit ugly! I know it shouldn't count, but i'm shallow like that. Good that there's so much detail in choosing the patterns and cuts though.

Very Versatile Mic
Vox Lover, 02.08.2019
Super mic for the money, with the features I was looking for. Condenser with 4 patterns, so it works for all applications in the studio, Comes in a nice case, with a shock mount, and has the feel and the look of a quality mic from AKG. Super frequency response, tho it may need a bit of EQ tweaking depending on the room. Works well with vocals and acoustic instruments, as well as close miking of guitar cabs.

AKG 314
JORGELPN, 04.10.2019
Gran microfono de condensador para todo tipo de usos, en el estudio tengo el 414 y la respuesta en frecuencia es mas lineal que el 414. Con cuatro patrones polares y pad de atenuación no necesitas mas.
Excelente construcción. Viene en maletín muy resistente y con todos los accesorios, pinza, araña y antipop.
Gran microfono y alta calidad.
