Summary: The B-1 is an excellent microphone for the money. The typical discount street price is $99. It looks good in the shack. It comes with a shock-reducing suspension mount, and an aluminum storage/travel case. This microphone requires 48 v phantom voltage - so you might want to get a suitable pre-amp (like the M-Audio AudioBuddy at $75-$85 typical discount street price) or something similar - perhaps costing less.
Summary: I was recording a friend and was unhappy with the sound I was getting. I purchased 2 B-1's used for way less that any other mics that I looked at and WOW what a difference. I like Behringer stuff in general.
Excerpt: I'm ham radio operator using this mike is awsome this mikephone is hotter than heil goldline mikephone,i heard from other and going to buy one used mine is good shape like new ! this mike went from s5 to s7 now s9 with this mikephone the mike is stronger than heil goldline that is why bh-1 went to s9 on my single report i use it every morning durning my weather net on 80 meters !

Summary: This is a very smooth and extremely clear sounding mic. It has a gentle rise from a 1000 Hz on up which gives it a very crisp sound. No peaks or dips in the frequency response. I have used U87's for recording vocals for years and the B-1 sounds so close it is amazing! For the price it is a must have for any recording studio.
Summary: Here my report from others ! I checked in into every morning weather net on 39.840.00 My normal single was S5 to S7 from Heil goldline mike now with Behringer B-1 mike S9 Good clean audio ! Good strong single ! Very good flat frq. reponse ! Over all the B-1 is little hotter than Goldline mike ! The mike that i have hook to is the FT 102 about 150 watts with B-1 mike The Goldline is hook to FT 847 and plan on keep goldline !
Summary: Hola compré un Microfono de estudio de condensador ya que tengo radios militares los cuales no cuentan con compresores o amplificadores de audio y requeria un buen microfono pre-amplificado para poder mantener una buena señal ya que al microfono original hay que hablarle fuerte par que mantenga una buena salida de potencia el transmisor.
