Reference multipattern condenser microphone matched stereo pair

A legend since 1971

the most versatile microphone for vocals and instruments in studio and on stage

The C414 XLS multipattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.
