AKG C414 XLS/ST stereo condenser microphone matched pair bundle includes two C414 XLS microphones, two shock mounts, a stereo bar, two foam windscreens, and hardshell carrying case. The included C414 XLS microphones have been selected from thousands of individual microphones and hand tested for sensitivity characteristics that lie within 1dB of one another throughout the range of 300Hz to 8kHz in cardioid mode. You also get a copy of your microphones’ performance charts to verify their matched performance characteristics.

The C414 XLS large-diaphragm condenser microphone provides nine pickup patterns – 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. The C414 XLS also features an astoundingly low noise floor and a 152dB dynamic range, making it perfect for any musical environment. A locking mode allows you to disable all of the C414 XLS’s controls for live-sound applications and permanent installations, and a special “Peak Hold” LED displays even shortest overload peaks.
