Behringer C-1 overview

  • 1Description

The C-1 Studio Condenser Microphone from Behringer offers a cardioid pickup pattern for maximum sound source separation and feedback rejection. This low noise microphone is suitable for a wide range of recording scenarios, including project, professional, and home studio applications. There is a pressure gradient transducer and a shock-mounted large diaphragm capsule for open, transparent sound with high-quality transient response. It is constructed of a die-cast metal body for durability and features an LED light to indicate when the microphone is receiving phantom power. The C-1 includes a swivel mount and custom case.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis noise and feedback.
Wide Frequency Response
The C-1 features a 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response for accurate reproduction of vocals and instruments.
Condenser Element
The sensitive condenser element captures signal accurately and with low noise.

    Behringer C-1 reviews

    C-1 Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean, crisp, sensitive recording! We are a vocal duo, we bought two C-1 microphones and are very pleased. They are sensitive enough so that we don't have to hover on top of them, and we can move naturally as we sing. We can control our volume dynamics well by leaning in or out. The high-end response is great clean and sharp without being hissy or shrill. It's minor, but the appearance is cool as well because of the color and the upright stance. We have not needed pop screens, we stay about a foot away and sing at a small room volume.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for $ and change I bought this mic to use with my little musical group to track some songs on to ProTool. To me it sounds just as good as most of the sub $200 large condensers out there, that said I did have the mic plugged in to a very high quality pre amp on a film mixer. Just Eq properly, and you'll get a decent sound. However I wouldn't be caught dead using this mic for a paying VO session, for me it's strictly a personal thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for a low cost I use this mic for an internet radio show and for pod-casting. Got it, plugged it into my sound board and it has been working great ever since. Sounds good and it's very durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than any I've used before The Behringer C-1 condenser microphone is what I would consider to be my first 'real' microphone; at least it's my first XLR mic. It's amazing, the difference it makes to my recordings. I'm just a novice when it comes to recording, but I've always loved audio. I bought a M-Audio Delta 1010LT some time ago for it's great multichannel capabilities and have only touched the surface of what I can accomplish with it. I am a GNU/Linux FLOSS (read Free/Libre/Open-Source Software) enthusiast and was looking to use Ardour2 as a quality recording system. The results are great! I hear no humming from the mic (or the power supply I also needed). In fact, my main annoyance is that of my computer's cooling fans (which I've set up too close to because I don't have a microphone cable yet), and even they are quite a bit quieter with the C-1's cardioid directional pattern, which does truly work. I always thought that a quality mic would cut out breathing noises, but I've been pleasantly surprised to discover that this is not a problem if sound is captured in perfect accuracy. It actually adds realism and not the annoying white-noise sounds I've come to expect with every other microphone I've played with. Of course, this mic requires phantom power, so it doesn't work directly off of the 1010LT; I also purchased a Behringer PS400 power supply with that in mind. In testing the Behringer C-1 mic with vocals it sounds great and input from my guitar amplifier works just as beautifully. I have yet to try recording an entire room's atmosphere by facing it at a wall (as another reviewer suggested), but am confident that that will be quite a bit of fun too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best studio mic for the buck Giving this mic a 5 star rating as compared to it's bargain price. The Behringer C1 equals to the Shure SM27, yet with a $250 price difference. Of course, there's nothing like a Neumann U87, but if you're on a budget and have good production techniques - the C1 is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you say Wow For the price... come on! If you like to just waste money then buy something more expensive. If you want to have great sound on a shoestring budget then buy it. I really like the way it picks up the room when the capsule is aimed at the wall. Expertise: Enthusiast Problems Encountered: None, yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best $ I ever spent I've now purchased 3 of these so I could have a pair for stereo recording and keep one for voice overs at the day job. Price to quality ratio is incredible, period. The mic is a little sibilant, but I'd take this $ large condenser for VO over a $200 dynamic mic any day! I accidentally left one of my C-1s on the stand (with a Samson shock mount) and discovered it was knocked over by rampaging cats overnight. As far as I can tell, there was no damage. Purty sturdy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They do the job The sound is good, but a little lacking in gain. I have another mic that I'm using (AKG Perception 120) in my podcast, with a little more gain, but the clarity is about the same with both of them. For the money, you can't beat it.
