Probably the best on the market
Xalyth, 25.06.2020
To be honest, I've tried many microphones. I decided to go for a professional ones. This is by far one of, if not, the best microphone I ever tried. And I've tried quite the variety which are well known brands (USB and XLR).
The clarity of the sound is just unbelievable.
The packaging is unreal: Comes in a metal box with the essensials, mount-shock, air pop filter, foam, a small bag for the microphone and the mic itself.
All the options are there for any kind of professional use. It would be an overkill for youtube but I don't regret it. Not one bit.

Only con i'd associate to this Mic is that it is extremely fragile and you have to be really careful with it. Other than that, it's worth every Cent.

It's not cheap but if you ask for perfection, you have to pay for it.

Recommend it to any passionate about Music, youtube or singing.

A microphone with a good history
Gilo 891, 29.06.2020
Given the well-earned reputation of this microphone, I can add little to what has already has been said. I looked at other mics in the field for vocalists in studio situations. The nine different polar patterns was a significant aspect for me as in due course I will purchase another and use them in a stereo pair formation with a wide a cardioid setting. Given that the manufacturing quality seems to be high suggests the tolerances may be such that two may be used together without being a matched pair.
My C414’s first application as a soloist microphone was in a sea shanty choir where each member of the group did a lead for a song they had chosen. Each member approached the microphone in different ways using a pop filter from the bundle AKG provide. Some sang close; other more distant but whatever the take they all sounded as good one might expect given its long history from the legendary C12 forward.

Sound good. Beware
Jibu, 10.03.2018
Please bear in mind that the new batch of AKG C414 XLII is Made in Hungary and not Austria any more. Thomann's website pictures till show that it is made in Austria. I was a bit worried about that. Do not know, if there is any other difference in the product itself, because I have never used C414 before. Sounds good to my ears, compared to some other brands.
