H 85 Universal Shockmount description:

The AKG H 85 Universal shockmount for all microphones with shaft diameters from 19 to 26 mm (0.75 to 1 in.), e.g. C 414 B-XLS und C 414 B-XL II.

For the new C 414 B-XLS and C 414 B-XL II microphones, AKG designed a new shock mount that differs from the familiar H 100 as follows:

  • The outside ring has been reduced in diameter from 120 mm (4.7 in.) to 100 mm (4 in.).
  • 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 H 85 shock mount keeps a lower profile than the H 100 and therefore looks better on the microphone.
  • The H 85 also matches several other AKG studio microphones, e.g., the C 2000 B, C 3000 B, and C 4000 B.
  • At present, the only microphones including an H 85 shock mount as a standard accessory are the C 414 B-XLS and C 414 B-XL II.

Customer Reviews


Really the only proper way to shock mount AKG C414.
These look slightly better than the old H100 - slightly smaller profile.

Needed a replacement for my old shockmount. This is slightly more compact and it holds the mic more firmly.
