    A matched pair of small diaphragm condenser mics ideal for stereo recording

    Behringer C-2 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones are for studio recording and live applications. All their features are packed in an extremely compact mic tube. Behrinber C-2 mics are sold in matched pairs—perfect for stereophonic recording—for a price you might think only bought you a single microphone.

    Behringer C-2 microphones use a low-mass diaphragm for ultra-wide frequency response and ultimate sound reproduction. The mics' inconspicuous size makes them perfect for acoustic instruments, overhead applications, pianos and similar instruents.

    The Behringer C-2 microphone's cardioid pickup pattern effectively eliminates feedback, plus they offer switchable low-frequency roll-off and -10 dB input attenuation. Ultra low-noise transformerless FET input eliminates low-frequency distortion, while a gold-plated 3-pin XLR connector assures the highest signal integrity. Behringer includes microphone stand adapters, windscreens, stereo-bar and a transport case. These Behringer condenser microphones are ready for action straight out of the box! If super-compact size is paramount and you don't want to compromise on performance, then a pair of Behringer C-2 microphones is the answer.

      I used to do lighting for plays and the sound guy hung these above the stage to help pick up actors with no MICS.. I went to my local music store and asked about them and they only had positive things to say, I picked up a pair and I was blown away, I would suggest these for overheads on drums, truely a great mic, the price is unbelievable it does not make any sence. Buy this product it comes in packs of two, who could ask for more?

      I use these mics as overheads for my conga/bongo kit on live club gigs. When operable, they served their purpose. And for the record, I baby ALL of my equipment, even to the point of actually being teased about it, so rough handling was NOT the cause of my problem. I enjoyed them for about 6 or so gigs, then I started to get a lot of snap, crackle and pop from one of them every time I would try to adjust its position. I thought it was a short in a cable jack at first, but replaced cables twice, only to determine it is some kind of short within the mic itself. I bought a warranty, so I'll be shipping them back for replacement. My recommendation is to only utilize these mics for light-duty applications; home studio, permanent placement for a choir, etc., as some other reviewers here are doing. I also recommend purchasing a warranty, regardless of your application.

        Comments about Behringer C-2 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Pair:

        I am replacing a set of good quality dynamic mics with this pair. I use them primarily for recording at home. The dynamics were quite crisp, but were more at home for voice and instruments always sounded trebly and harsh, even after trying different EQ settings. The C-2's give a very clear, authentic, and balanced sound by comparison.
        I also have a Behringer Eurorack UB802, and with these C-2 mics, it's a great little package that delivers excellent sound and mixing capabilities for not much money. As far as durability goes, these items do not travel (yet), so the word is not complete on that subject.

            I purchased a set of these to see if they were any good and was amazed at what you get for the money. These are not high end microphones but a great set of backup mics and for general use. After playing around with them for a couple of weeks I ordered two more sets.

              Great sound. I use these for singers with soft voices and other situations where a dynamic is not suitable. By a pair of only to have spares - you won't be disappointed.

                Crystal clear, perfect for recording acoustic guitar in stereo. Well worth the price. Also used them to record wind-chimes. I imagine I will use these to record lots of acoustic instruments in stereo.

                Surprising

                from Waukegan

                Comments about Behringer C-2 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Pair:

                I purchased these mics on a whim to round out my modest mic locker with some SDCs for spot micing. The quality and features of the mics are surprising: low-cut/-10db switches, stereo bar, windscreens...everything one would need to begin using these mics in any situation.I can't attest to the mics' sound as OH, or X-Y on piano, I bought these guys for one purpose: snare micing. An SDC coupled with an SM57 or e609 is the perfect snare sound for me. An with the -10db pad and windscreens, I can use these mics in the studio AND onstage. There are better mics out there, but names don't mean anything if they can't deliver the sound you're after.
