Let's say I got a noise machine, and a time-variable one. I still believe it is not a good representative of the model quality. Compared to a C-3 it boosted around 6 dB lower sensivity and about 16dB more unweighted noise. Unacceptable behaviour. This one was returned together with a defective C-2 pair. There seems to be a lack of quality control now, never had a problem wirth Behringer products before I intend to edit this review as soon as I receive a known-good unit, but Thomann takes an huge amount of time handling returns at lease here in Portugal.
The product was replaced and now I got a very reasonable microphone with an acceptable noise level and a very good frequency response.

Fabulous! No other words for it at this price
Elisabeth85, 12.07.2014
I'm using this for recording my current album, together with the 1204 mixer. See my review of that for details about problems I had with the headphone amp making me think this mic was not up to it - very noisy on that but check out the playback from the recording - absolutely perfect! Best to find a decent headphone amp as well, to hear what this mic is really capable of delivering. If you want to hear a sample of the work I have done with this rig, check out my soundcloud latest recordings at you can compare the difference to the earlier recording done with the Ipad internal mic - quite a difference, yet the Ipad has a great mic also, so that saying a lot for the C1. I was worried at first yet now I am completely satisfied and am not looking for another mic, at any price - this is perfectly good enough to record an album with. At this price it is a gift from Behringer to all of us poor musician folk strugling to survive and do our work as well. Thanks Mr B.

Solid budget gear
Cj Smith, 10.08.2020
Looking for mic for home studio/demo material and this fits the bill. Nice solid construction. A bit lacking on bass but was great for vocals. Great purchase overall for those on a budget.
