Behringer C1 Studio Condenser Microphone

The C-1 microphone is a home recording enthusiast's dream come true! This professional-quality condenser microphone is designed to capture your sounds with incredible realism, sensitivity and accuracy. With the C-1's outstanding cardiod pickup pattern for excellent sound source separation and feedback rejection, these ultra-low noise mics are an excellent choice for any recording scenario - and rugged enough to go the distance! With a handy swivel stand mount included in the sleek transport case, the C-1 just may be the only microphone your studio will need.

What is a Condenser Mic?

Condenser microphones are the ideal choice for capturing vocals and acoustic instruments. They're the primary type of microphone used in recording studios and radio stations. C-1 mics are capable of capturing much more detail than most dynamic microphones because of their wider, flatter frequency response. Another difference between condenser and dynamic mics is they contain active circuitry that requires phantom power (+48 V) for operation. You can power your C-1 using any phantom power equipped BEHRINGER XENYX mixer, plus enjoy the benefits of Behringer's state-of-the-art XENYX mic preamps.

Why the C-1?

C-1 microphone is an affordable, high-quality way to get what you really hear down on tape (or in bits). Thanks to the pressure gradient transducer and shock-mounted large diaphragm capsule, the C-1 delivers an open, transparent sound with excellent transient response. Featuring a superb cardioid (heart-shaped) pickup pattern, the C-1 picks up your source signal, while rejecting off -axis sounds that can ruin an otherwise perfect recording. The C-1 truly delivers on the promise of noise-free transmission, with the utmost transparency - and features an LED that shows you when the mic is receiving phantom power, taking the guesswork out of the equation.

But That's Not All…

The C-1 microphone is designed to be your go-to condenser mics for many years to come. The tough, die-cast metal body can withstand all the rigors of those late-night recording marathons - and the included carrying case ensures they always travel in safety and style. The studio-grade C-1 condenser microphone is an excellent choice for both live and studio applications, and available at a price that will leave you with enough cash left over to secure other recording essentials.

Hard to beat
I wrote a review for this product in January, 2008 and would like to make a correction to that previous review. I said something about not using this in a live setting. I did not do the product justice in saying this because if the system you're using has appropriate eq settings this works great in a live setting as well. I ran into a problem with feedback issues because I neglected to roll off the high frequencies. This can be more of an issue with a condenser because the feedback is more pronounced. I can't rightly blame the mic for behaving as it should when the error was mine.

You said it was how much?!
Pros: Quiet,Great Audio Quality

The Beringer C1 is a lot of mic for very little scratch. It may not compare with a 2 or 3 hundred dollar mic but it is dead quiet and very natural sounding. It picks up the room quite well. Two things to be aware of: The stand adaptor is plastic so don't go knocking it around. I've had mine for a year and it's still like new. The second thing is I don't recommend trying to use this in a live application. Trust me, just don't do it. Overall a great product.

P.S. If you are looking you will have a hard time finding a dealer who sells this product. Many vendors seem to lean more toward higher dollar products so don't pass up a deal like this.

Great Mic
Pros: Great Sound Quality,Simple Use,Durable

The mic picks up pretty much every noise, so just adjust your mixer well and it will work great! I am gonna buy a second one when I go to a 2 mic setup.

not good for DJing
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Limited Functions

I bought it to add to my collection of mics. I'm a "mobile DJ" and yes I know its a "studio mic" and I found out the hard way that this is no good for using for DJing. No matter how I set it up or which mixer or amps or speaker types I used, I always had a "hum". Only use this as a studio/recording mic. Still a good mic.
