World's Most Popular Studio Mic?
The C 414 B-ULS has a well-deserved reputation for flawless performance and uncommon flexibility in the most demanding studio and concert sound applications. The crisp, full-bodied, and naturally open character of the C 414 B-ULS makes it a preferred choice for critical recording or reinforcement of vocals, piano, percussion, and other instruments with delicate transient content. Dual one-inch, gold-sputtered diaphragms coupled to Ultra Linear Series electronics deliver exceptionally flat on-axis response, while advanced capsule design assures uniform off-axis transitions. Four selectable polar patterns precisely tailor response for maximum versatility, and two bass filter settings suppress unwanted low frequency components. Extremely low self-noise and high overload points combine for a remarkably wide 126 dB dynamic range, well in excess of digital media capabilities. The switchable 10 dB or 20 dB internal preattenuation pads allow use on instruments producing over 150 dB SPL with THD held to less than 0.5%. A worldwide studio standard in every respect, the C 414 B-ULS comes complete with spider suspension, windscreen, and individually tested frequency response curve.
