Your first microphone. Why not this?

Grayromance, 31.10.2013
Category of inexpensive studio microphones in the environment is considered to be an audiophile little defective.
So I want to say a few words in defense of Behringer C1. The most important rule - it's high quality microphone cable and a good preamp (sound card ) . In my case, this card from Line 6 and cords Cordial, which I also got to Thomann . The noise level was low, and the recording quality has generally improved . With this chain , I work 2 years - write an acoustic guitar and flute. Moreover, with the growth of my skills also improved the quality of the recording . Later I began to use it for audio programs on the channel You Tube. After a while, I got a more expensive mic, but the part with Behringer C1 I'm not in a hurry. Basically, now I use it for voice vote.
Conclusion: High-quality microphone in your niche will suit beginners and beyond: for video ( voice recording ) for home recording , sound recording learning tricks . In the right hands can produce good results.

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.
