AKG C214 vs C314

AKG C214 vs C314

Hello there,

I've had two C214 for a while, using them for home studio recording, mainly vocals and acoustic guitars/ukes.

I'm thinking of upgrading to C314 (the desirable 414 being way too expensive for my budget), mainly for their ability to switch between different polar patterns. There doesn't seem to be a lot of 314 around so I'm not able to test them. AKG claims the capsule is better than the 214 and very close to the 414. Is this true?

Do you have an opinion on this upgrade?
