Behringer C-2 Stereoset

Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Stereoset

These professional condenser microphones for the studio and live use have a comprehensive range of compact dimensions. They are available as a balanced pair and are thus ideally suited for stereo recording. The C-2 microphones are characterised by a light diaphragm for a wide frequency response and sound quality and are suitable due to their handy format for acoustic instruments or as overhead microphones.

Cardioid characteristics reduce feedback problems. Other useful features include a switchable high-pass filter and an optional level reduction (-10 dB). A transformerless FET input circuit reduces distortion in the bass area and a gold-plated XLR connector ensures good signal transmission. Complete scope of supply with suitable microphone clamps, windscreen, stereoscreen and a transport case.

What can I say they just work!
Stefano de Belfast, 11.10.2020
Needed small condenser mic for acoustic guitar recording. Hd a look around but needed a budget option as cash was scarce. Settled on the little Behringers and they didn't disappoint. Capture and present a true sound of the instrument perfectly.
It's not Neumann KM184's but then at this price point you don't expect them to be. If you find you need a budget option look no further. Can't fault them, just perfect.

Remarkable
Jez Upminster, 03.08.2020
I've been experimenting with them as overheads on drums, under the snare and for tuned hand percussion and kalimba.

As you have probably noticed, these microphones are absurdly cheap. I got them just to see what they were like. Compared to an AKG C414 they are not as full down below 100Hz and have an enhanced brightness up top. That being said they work fine as overheads. That extra brightness can be softened with a little eq.

I haven't got a pair of Neumans to to a direct comparison but then again I've got £969 more in the bank than if I had !!!

I have spent an absurd amount on some specialist mics in the past. It's not always been money will spent. These are great to get started and learning how to mic things up.

So far, so very good.
Smigsie., 26.06.2020
I’m using these for both recording and playing live. I have a very old Martin Sigma that sounds great acousticly but doesn’t plug in well. These offer the truest amplified sound I’ve achieved and record just as well. Ive even started using them with my Ovation as I liketo combine the sound with the line in. After a month of use, they perform as new. Great value. I assume that the expensive ones are slightly better, but if you use less expensive sound equipment and recording systems as I do, then I doubt you can tell the difference.... neither can 99.9% of the population! As ever, you need to be aware of positioning to avoid feedback, but the 10db cut does help. I thought I was just risking 40 euros to give them a try but the are one of the best purchases I’ve made so far.

Excellent for the price
06.02.2015
I bought these mikes specifically for use as drum overheads. I have used them in an XY, and AB spaced position, as well as using the Recorderman technique - see the end of this review for a brief explanation.

The mics are well made, and feel solid. They provide a three-position switch for flat, low-pass or -10dB pad response. The -10dB pad is particularly useful for miking loud percussive instruments such as a drum kit. The cardiod response is good for minimising off-axis response, which is useful if your recording space is less than stellar or too boxy.

They have proven solid and reliable performers. Their response time is good which makes them very well suited for percussive instruments. Frequency wise, they have a good response which is not over-hyped at the high-end like some other cheap mikes. Noise hasn't been an issue. Stereo wise, they provide a solid,coherent image which I find particularly appealing.

My favoured setup is Recorderman overhead drum mic technique. Basically one of the mikes is placed directly above the centre of the snare drum about two drum sticks in height. The other one is placed roughly above the drummer's shoulder, on the floor tome side, also pointing towards the centre of the snare, at an equal distance. This provides a balanced sound for the entire kit, without too much room sound. You can vary the position of the second mike to get more/less volume from the bass drum.

Excellent value, and a bargain at the price. I would certainly buy them again.
