The C 414 B/XLS has been carefully designed to maintain
the legendary sonic character of the C 414 family while integrating new features
and performance enhancements made possible by new technology. The C 414B/XLS is
designed to deliver accurate pickup of all acoustic instruments and voices. The
microphone’s 5 pickup patterns are easily selectable via an electronic switch
with LED indication and offer the selection of omnidirectional, cardioid, wide
cardioid, hypercardioid and figure-eight patterns.
The pickup pattern selector switch utilizes a dual-color LED indicator that provides
visual indication of the pattern selected and also changes from green red to indicate
if the microphone’s output electronics are being overloaded. The pattern
selector can also be used to “lock” the microphone’s switch
settings by pressing and holding it for 3 seconds. On the rear of the microphone,
an electronic switch allows the selection of -6 dB, -12 dB and -18 dB pre-attenuation
levels which are accomplished by changing the polarization voltage to the capsule.
The C 414 B/XLS has switchable bass cut filers of 12 dB-per-octave at 40 Hz and
80 Hz, and a 6-dB-per-octave filter at 160 Hz for control of proximity effect.
On-axis sensitivity for all patterns is 23 mV/Pa and its self-noise is an extremely
low 6 dB-A.
The C 414 B/XLS has a transformerless output and all-metal chassis, making it
immune to electrical interference and RF from digital equipment, video monitors
and wireless systems. It comes complete in an all-metal road case with the AKG
H-85 shock mount, a PF80 external two-stage pop filter, a W414X external windscreen
an individually-measured chart showing the response curve of the microphone. It
is also available in factory-matched stereo pairs packaged with a H50 stereo bar
instead of the external pop filter. The C 414B/XLS is built in Vienna, Austria
and comes with a three-year limited parts and labor warranty.
