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.

Top Mikrofon
Toermi, 21.08.2017
Habe mir das Mikrofon als Low-Mic für die Snare gekauft und bin sehr begeistert. Durch die Veränderbare Charakteristik hat sich das Aufnehmen mit 8er-Charakteristik hervorragend umsetzen lassen.

Die Verarbeitung ist Top, das Handling einfach. Die mitgelieferte Spinne lässt sich gut installieren und macht einen stabilen Eindruck.

Der Klang ist hervorragend.

Wenn man ein sehr gutes Mikrofon mit veränderbarer Richtcharakteristik benötigt und auf das große C414 schielt, ist das kleinere C314 auf jeden Fall eine sehr lohnende Alternative!

Ich bin mit dem Mic absolut zufrieden!
