The B-2 Pro Gold-Sputtered Large Dual-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone from Behringer features a pressure gradient, dual-diaphragm capsule that delivers a transparent 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response while handling an SPL rating of 135 dB (145 dB with pad), resulting in clean transparent audio at transient peak levels. The B-2 offers switchable cardioid, omni-directional, and figure-of-eight polar patterns for versatile use in most recording scenarios. A -10 dB pad switch provides headroom when recording loud signals that can distort on input, and a low-frequency roll-off switch minimizes low-end noise at 150 Hz. The microphone includes a shockmount, windscreen, and carrying case.
Switchable Polar Patterns
The B-2 features omni-directional, cardioid and figure 8 polar patterns for added flexibility.
High-Pass Filter Switch
A high-pass filter switch eliminates low frequencies at 150 Hz. This is useful when ambient hum or line noise is prevalent.
-10 dB Pad Switch
The B-2 is capable of handling Sound Pressure Levels of up to 135 dB, and a -10 dB pad switch allows for a total of 145 dB of headroom.
