We're sorry, this product is no longer available.


The new C414B-XLS has a vastly improved capsule shockmount and switching. 1" diaphragm. 5 switchable polar patterns: omnidirectional, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, and figure 8. 2-color LEDs indicate polar pattern and output overload. 3 switchable bass cut filters and 3 pre-attenuation pads with LEDs for quick reference. 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range. Signal to noise ratio of 88dB, A-weighted. Ideal for accurate, beautifully detailed reproduction of any acoustic instrument.

Responding to growing demand from recording engineers, AKG decided to produce the C 451 B with identical acoustical behaviour of the popular original C 451 EB + CK 1 microphone again, with dramatically improved specifications and outstanding price/performance. The capsule of the new version is fixed permanently to the preamp to eliminate the mechanical problems of the screw joint. Using an extremely light diaphragm, the new C 451 B is almost totally insensitive to handling noise. An all-metal body provides excellent protection from RF interference and the microphone is rugged enough to give excellent results even under very harsh conditions.
