The C-1 is a cardioid condenser microphone designed to capture your sounds with incredible realism, sensitivity and accuracy.

What is a Condenser Mic?

Condenser microphones are the ideal choice for capturing vocals and acoustic instruments. They're the primary type of microphone used in recording studios and radio stations. They are capable of capturing much more detail than dynamic microphones because of their wider, flatter frequency response. Another difference between condenser and dynamic mics is that they contain active circuitry that requires phantom power (+48 V DC) for operation. You can power them from any phantom power equipped BEHRINGER XENYX mixer, plus enjoy the benefits of our state-of-the-art XENYX mic preamps.

Why the C-1?

The C-1 is an affordable, high-quality way to put this essential studio tool to work for you. Thanks to its cardioid (heart-shaped) pattern, the C-1 microphone picks up your source signal while rejecting off-axis sounds that can ruin an otherwise perfect recording. With its excellent transducer and gold-plated XLR output, the C-1 is very neutral sounding and truly delivers on the promise of noise-free transmission.

But That's Not All…

The C-1 is built to be your go-to condenser mic for years to come. Its tough, die-cast body can withstand all the rigors of bleary-eyed late-night recording marathons. And with its rugged foam-padded carrying case, it travels in safety and style. We also included a swivel stand mount so it can be affixed to your studio's mic stands.

Comments about Behringer C-1 Studio Condenser Microphone:

This product by far is the best mic that I've acquired for a great price. The SM58 I invested in a few years ago will set you back around 180 - 250. Where as this Behringer C-1 Condenser Microphone for a fraction of the cost captures audio at a higher quality than SM58s or other expensive mics. In terms of it's comparison to a more expensive condenser microphone this one is great if your on a budget or just need something to get the job done. The mic holder is slightly flimsy but there are shock mounts available for the Behringer C1 which will fix that.

        A:

        No. This is a Condenser mic, and is only XLR and required Phantom power, through a mixing desk or Camera fitted with XLR Audio. If you want a USB microphone the look in this area of our website: http://www.videoguys.com.au/Shop/c/534/usb-microphones.html
