Universal shock mount
for all microphones with shaft diameters from 19mm to 26mm (3/4" to 1"), such as the C414XLS
and the C414XLII.
For the new C414XLS
microphones, AKG designed a new shock mount
that differs from the familiar H100 as follows:
The outside ring has been reduced in diameter from 120 mm
(4.7 in.) to 100 mm
The color has been changed from black to dark gray.
The clamping range has been increased from 22 - 26 mm
(0.87 - 1.02 in.) to 19 - 26 mm
(0.7 - 1.02 in.) to accommodate microphones with cylindrical or conical bodies or connectors including, e.g., the AKG Blue Line and ULS Series.
The H85 shock mount
keeps a lower profile than the H 100 and therefore looks better on the microphone
The H85 also matches several other AKG studio microphones, e.g., the C2000B, C3000B, and C4000B.
At present, the only microphones including an H85 shock mount
as a standard accessory are the C414XLS
