It is obvious but you should NEVER purchase a microphone with out hearing it. There are just too many things that can go wrong with a used microphone.

I agree, the variations of the 414 are getting hard to follow. The problem that a lot of these companies have is that getting a new mic to take with the pro audio crowd seems to be an impossible task. So they iterate on their popular lines of mics. I mean, the Neumann M149 M147 line could have easily been its own new model number, but they used the U47/U49 clout to push a new generation of Neumann's.

It sure does make it difficult to know what's what though.
