    Behringer C-1U Reviews

    C-1U USB Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont buy the recording volume was super low...i turned every vol to max, i tried changing drivers, still no hope. I checked online, and so many ppl have the same problem, and there seems to be no solution so far. it may have something to do with the usb power supplying level fact. i will be returning this asap. ive tried samson c01u on my same pc before and it sounds much much much better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound for acoustic dobro INSTALLATION. First several attempts to connect resulted in error message about overloading the USB port, but works fine since. CLARITY. I recorded several less common instruments and made my own ring tones. Dobro, kalimba, jaw harp, and pan pipes sound especially good. LEARNING CURVE. USB mics do not monitor (hear yourself while recording) as analog mics do with mic input. I can SEE the input level on the meters, records fine, and plays back well. I just can't hear myself while recording. (Still seeking the solution.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Mic! I had read all of the reviews for the C-1 on quite a few different sites, but really just wanted a quick connect USB versus purchasing an additional power supply for the C-1. This was my first prosumer type mic, and the sound quality difference is amazing compared to the cheap $20 computer mics I had been using in the past. I purchased a Samson stand and shockmount, along with a pop-mic to complete the package. I can't believe I waited so long to purchase a good mic! The setup does take up some desktop space, so be prepared to make some room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic but no stand My son plays guitar and uses the microphone to record his music directly on the computer. The microphone provides excellent recording quality but has no stand included. If it had a stand it would have been a solid five stars!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Son says it's a great mic. Son says this mic was easy to install (usb) and sounds great. Mom is a singer and likes the quality too. Good deal!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality Mic We use this with Audacity to record voice/piano/trumpet - it does a fine job with just a bit of tweaking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cheap condenser Was used as part of a Burning man project, it handled the dust and noise as needed.

    I'm using C-1U, but I get a lot of noise. Not a baground one, but as there is an old tv set tunned in no channel (like in Poltergeist movie). Like a Xcchhxhhchchehxhhhch sound. I've already tried other USB, recording level sets, other computer and other room. What can I Do?
