Best mic at this price point?
Laniakea, 04.10.2020
The mic is a great starting point for those who need a mic for speaking since it can compete with such a mic as Blue Yeti but is 5 times cheaper.
PROS:
1) Price. On the best microphones under a hundred euros straight from the box. If your speech is confident and loud enough, you won't hear complaints about the sound of your mic from others.
2) The sound is not "plastic". The mic does not create nasty notches in the spectrum and does not screw up frequency response (FR). FR is not flat but still sounds natural and pleasing.
CONS:
1) Noise level. You almost will not be able to hear the noise in a recording if you speak loudly enough, but when you apply a decent amount of compression or boost highs, the noise is pretty noticeable during silent moments, not so much during the speaking.
2) The sound is not as detailed as you would like to have. Even though it captures sound at a decent level, you will not be able to hear the slightest differences in volume or frequency changes as you would by using more expensive hardware.
3) Has small diaphragm

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.
