The Behringer B-1 large diaphragm condenser microphone is manufactured for project and professional engineers who favor quality at an affordable price point. The B-1 features a pressure gradient, capsule that delivers a transparent 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response while handling with an SPL rating of 138dB (148dB with Pad). The result is clean transparent audio even at extreme transient peak levels. The B-1 features a cardioid polar pattern, minimizing off-axis audio and noise caused by ambiance, noise additional instruments etc. A -10dB pad switch provides even further headroom when recording loud signals that can distort on input. A Low-frequency roll-off switch minimizes low-end noise at 75Hz (6dB / Octave).
- Cardioid Polar Pattern
- The B-1 features a cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizing off-axis signal and noise caused by room ambiance, monitors, noise, additional instruments etc.
- High-Pass Filter Switch
- A high-pass filter switch eliminates low frequencies at 75Hz (6dB / Octave). This is useful when ambient hum or line noise is prevalent.
- -10dB Pad Switch
- The B-1 is capable of handling Sound Pressure Levels of up to 135dB, a -10dB pad switch allows for a total of 148dB of headroom. Engineers will find the pad useful when close miking instruments with high transient character.
