OMG This Things ROCKS! 0_0

I was compared this with at5040 and im blown away, They have similiar bright sounding mic, but the differences is this thing is like 100bucks and that is thousand bucks

Wow! Very Impressive!

I have a VERY primitive home recording setup that I am slowly improving on as I learn more about recording. My budget for this is virtually non-existent, so I have to purchase wisely, and get the most out of each purchase. When I researched condenser mics at a price point that worked for me, this mic kept popping up as the one to have. After purchasing it, I have to say that this could be the single most important and drastic upgrade I've made!! My old USB mic was one of the better ones on the market, but I found I didn't have a ton of headroom when pushing it (I play hard rock), and it wasn't sensitive enough for softer was stuck in the middle with "barely good enough" status. The first thing I noticed about this mic was it's sensitivity. I recorded a softer passage and it perfectly captured the soft "S" and even my breath intake, which was perfect for the mood of the song. With a flick of the "-10db" switch, I could record more powerful passages without over-modulating, and still having plenty of clarity and headroom left for final mixing. This mic has completely altered my perspective of what can be done, even with the primitive setup I currently have. Thrown in the fact that it comes with a nice shock mount, a windscreen/pop filter cover, and an awesome aluminum case to protect everything, this is an AMAZING bargain!!

Behringer B-1

Incredible Mic, been using it 6 years now without any probs whatsoever !!!I use on low impedance through a small Behringer 12 channel mixer and it's just *** Kickin !!! When I lived in Florida, it used to pick up the golf carts passing outside, I sing about a foot from it, incredible sound !!!i'd recommend it for home and studio work only, I'd be afraid to take it on a gig and drop it. Most studio mics like these are not recommended for road use.BEST MIC I'VE EVER HAD AND I'LL NEVER PART WITH IT !!!

Awesome mic!!

I am blown away by the clarity and tone of the Behringer B1! I've only begun to play around with it, but have tried it out on vocals and acoustic guitar and am very pleased with the results! Would definitely recommend his mic!
