AKG C414 XLS is Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone. AKG C414 XLS offers nine pickup patterns which enable you to choose the perfect setting for every application. In addition to the five patterns traditionally offered by the C 414 (omnidirectional, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, and figure eight), you also get four intermediate settings that let you dial in the best pattern to suite your environment. AKG C414 XLS also features an astoundingly low noise floor and a 152dB dynamic range, making the C 414 XLS ideal for any musical environment. A locking mode allows you to disable all of AKG C414 XLS’s controls for live-sound applications and permanent installations, and a special “Peak Hold” LED displays even shortest overload peaks.
