Akg c414b xls - polar pattern switch noise.

Hi there,

I was looking all over the internet to do find an answer to the question but was unable thus Ive started this thread.

I'm buying akg c414b xls microphone and the guy says that whenever he changes the pickup pattern of the capsule there is a click noise.
We both don't know if it's something to worry about?
I've never had a c414 so I cannot tell.

Please help,

I have a pair of 414b-uls, and the noise they make when changing patterns isn't a click, but a loud obnoxiois potentially monitor destroying boom.

This is a common thing with multi pattern mic's. Should always turn the volume down when switching patterns or flipping switches.
