Super-cardioid electret condenser microphone for demanding instrument recordings, and performances that produce extended frequencies, high SPL handling and transient response. For woodwind, strings, and home recording.


The e 614 is a super-cardioid condenser microphone, designed for demanding instrument recordings and performances that require extended frequency response, high SPL handling, fast transient response and compact size. While drumset overhead miking was the first design priority, the e614 also works exceptionally well on percussion setups as well, fitting comfortably into tight setups. The e 614 can handle high SPLs and features medium sensitivity, which ensures reduced bleed from other instruments on stage. Because of its excellent acoustic properties, this mic is also ideal for home recording.


  • 40-20,000 Hz

  • Designed for demanding applications where extended frequency range, high SPL handling, fast transient response and small size are required

  • Captures the shimmer and the contact of sticks, mallets and hands

  • Nearly flat response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz and a supercardioid pattern
