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 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.

The B-1 is an affordable, high-quality way to put this essential studio tool to work for you. Thanks to its 1.0" capsule, it captures sound with incredible realism and sensitivity. It boasts a wide frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, enhanced by a pronounced presence boost. With its excellent transducer and gold-plated XLR output, the B-1 truly delivers on the promise of noise-free transmission.

The B-1 also gives you a switchable, -10dB attenuator to capture high-volume signal sources without distorting, as well as a low-cut filter to eliminate infrasonics caused by floor rumble and other turbulence.

The B-1 is built to be your go-to condenser mic for years to come. Its tough, nickel-plated brass body can withstand all the rigors of bleary-eyed, late-night recording marathons. And with its foam-padded, aluminum carrying case, it travels in safety and style. We also included a heavy-duty suspension mount and windscreen.

This is a very durable, yet versatile mic. It has great response at low volumes and can withstand the SPL of a beefy kick drum as well.
For the price its a steal.

This is a mic that will treat you well. The features with bass pad and high frequency roll off work well. The mic is a good mic and good value for the price.
