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.
Value - This condenser mic is an excellent choice for live and studio applications, and it's available at a price that will leave you with enough cash left over to secure other recording essentials. Check out the incredible C-1 at a BEHRINGER dealer near you.

This is an excellent mic for the price. Although I've heard that this is "identical" to the Samson C01, I think that the Samson is just slightly more stable when handling high DB loads.The cardoid pattern is pretty serious. This is great IF your subject is directly in front of the mic. However, the mic has noticable proximity effect and if you're not using compression you'll have a somewhat wavy sound if your subject moves around while recording.The high ends are very clear and the mic (as advertised) can handle loads of 136 db. However, the mic has pretty hot output and I've noticed a "grainyness" when I have a vocalist too close to the mic. I have used an ART TUBE MP preamp and the built in phantom powered preamp on my Zoom R-16 and have the same results with both. The mic's sweet spot seems to be between 4 and 8 inches from the diaphragm and I have little to no distortion from that distance while retaining nice warmth. Although there are better mics out there, you're going to be hard pressed to find ANYTHING that sounds better for the price.
