      A while back, I bought an M-Audio Delta 1010LT and had been looking for a mic. It wasn't long before I discovered the Behringer C-1 condenser microphone. It looked like a dream, my perfect mic, but there was a catch. It didn't take long, looking at the specs to realize that it needed something so mysterious, they called it "phantom" power. Sure enough, in my setup it would have been a missing link since the Delta 1010LT provides a preamp, but not this "phantom" power. So I searched a bit for the least expensive remedy, and this was it. The PS400 I bought works great for this purpose. Also, I hear nothing resembling a hum that people seem to be so worried about in their audio setups, but I am no expert.

        Comments about Behringer PS400 Phantom Power Supply:

        This is a great little unit. It does just what it needs to, adding phantom power to a condenser mic. It's always on, so you'll need to get your own power toggle switch if you want to turn this unit on/off. Can't beat the price, especially through B&H! (I looked :)

                Powering a talk back MIC into headphones in a Whisper Booth for talent to hear the producer and engineer. Plug it in and ready to go. It is always powered on which may shorten the life of the unit.

                  Works like a champ. I found mine very steady with the 48V. that I required for an AKG. NO NOISE, hums or anything that will alter the sound quality. Does it's job.

                                  So far I have nothing to complain about. Product works great. I'm actually a huge fan of the Behringer products, if you read how the company got started it's (supposedly) built around making effecting yet affordable music products. As far as I'm concerned, this product is perfect for my purpose and though I can't promise how long it will last (only got it for about a month) the warranty really doesn't hurt.
                                  I needed it to power my condenser mic though UX1 (which requires Phantom Power), not a professional sound person so can't tell you how it effects the performance of the mic, what I can tell you is that it works.

                                    These are nice single channel phantom power supplies. I wish Behringer made a dual channel phantom supply. I'd guess that for around $10.00 more for the connectors and resistors needed, they would have a good market for a dual channel 48 volt supply with their C-2 mics.

                                      There remains no area of the audio world that Behringer has yet to cheapify. But hey at least it works. I'll keep it as something I hope I never have to use.

                                        I am a novice video recorder but need to use video and audio for research. This product is simple to use and helped me to ensure that I recorded the audio I needed for my research.

                                          Comments about Behringer PS400 Phantom Power Supply:

                                          I am using this product with a non-phantom power goose-neck mic, and it works great with it. I wouldn't get the awesome sound from the mic, if it weren't for this handy little box.

                                          Pros: It's small, sturdy and doesn't take up much space. You don't have to use batteries or anything, just plug it into a wall outlet.

                                          I'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

                                                its a solid 3-4 stars but gave it 5 because of the price. No special feature, 1in-1out, no fluff and works great for anyone's regular needs. It also seems very solid with its metal case.
