I work for the audio department at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. We own 10 of these DI's and use them HEAVILY (2-4) times per week - year round. I've read some complaints about failure, but in four years, we haven't had a single problem with any of them. One of our reps actually hooked all the DI's he sells to a scope and the Behringer beat out many of the higher priced Whirlwinds and Radials in terms of frequency accuracy (I know that doesn't necessarily translate to fidelity). Now, if your doing a priceless recording and need pristine audio quality, then I'd go with something in a higher price range. But if your doing live work, you really can't beat this DI.

Purchased one of these DIs, here, back in 2003 along with a G100 DI. Wanted a couple of active boxes and these seemed to fit the bill at a price point I could afford. They worked great in a live sound situation up until 2017. Both boxes exhibited a high amount of hiss that was unacceptable. Swapped one out with a newer D100 and the hiss disappeared. Same for the other box. It apeared that they both had developed "electronic" problems. Unfortunately these are at a price that makes them disposable. The bench charge alone at the authorized repair facility nearest my location along with shipping costs would equal 2 new boxes. When they work they are great. I would caution the potential buyer to consider this aspect before purchase. If you're cool with 10 plus years of use and then replacing the unit, go for it. If you'd rather buy once for a product that will last a "lifetime", perhaps something else would be better suited for your needs

Great DI for the money!

By bigcam_us

from Illinois

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

The Behringer Ultra ? DI 100 is hard to beat for the money. The professional multi-purpose features are great! And yes it does have gold plated XLR and ? connectors. I play 5 string bass, and no problems on the low B or in the 7th position with runs and licks up into the cutout. Soundmen are just awed at it performance. It?s as rugged as the high dollar units. Actual these DI?s have lasted longer for me since the high-end units seem to grow legs and walk away. The high-end units don?t have anything over this unit. I still have my 1st Ultra DI 100 in service and it was purchased in 04/2006. Just bought the 2nd one a year ago to make switching rigs at gigs easier.

Broke after light use

Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

Great features and price, but using it every now and then at church, it broke within 3 years--it distorts whether on phantom or battery power.

    Had trouble with a passive DI getting enough bass signal to FOH. Bought this and the thump was back. Do not need the battery with phantom power.

    Good sound, but not durable

    By tomnsan

    from Vancouver, WA

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I use 4 of these DI's as sound tech in a large church. I also use other brand DI's. I like the Behringer prices and features, but two of the four Behringers have quit working with phantom power. Since they are less than 2 years old, I don't feel that we've really got our money's worth, even though they are less expensive than some DI's. On the positive side, electic/acoustic guitars really sound good using this DI box. I suggest Behringer put a little more effort into quality control and durability. They have some great products, but they don't have a good reputation for durability, in my opinion. I have other Behringer equipment as well.

    Great for limited useage

    By SarahS

    from Litchfield, MN

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    Initially, I really liked this product. It had some great features and wonderful external durability. The greatest drawback was the battery. If you don't physically turn it off, it will drain your battery before your next concert/practice. The other problem was that the wires for the 9-volt connection head eventually broke off and we had to replace the connection. We have had this direct box for two years.

    Quiet. Intuitive. Noise floor is awesome

    By 16xx24xx

    from Lake Oswego, OR

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I used phantom power to power this unit and it sounded awesome. Very low noise and hiss. Added alot of punch to this bass track I was laying. I used to go direct into the recorder with the bass but now I use this brand of direct box (chose them because they were cheapest and I could always return it) The bass recordings are, no joke, 10x better. It went from blah low-punch, low-response to BOOM - sounded just like the bass from the Billy Idol mix of Mony, Mony. THAT bass exactly. I was very impressed. Matter of fact, it's plugged in right now...

    Great DI box for small bucks!`

    By jmikek

    from GA

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I have had this DI box for about 2 months now, and have used it in several shows. It does a great job and holds up very well. To tell you the truth, it surprised me how clear and powerful this thing is. I would recommend it to anyone. It has worked for an electric, acoustic, and a bass and hasn't given me a reason to complain yet!

    weekly worker

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    Mine does weekly duty in a live setting, I've used it for a year and a half now, and no glitches. It might be different if I were traveling or had to use batteries, but in a stationary placement, no kicking around, and run with phantom power it has shined every equivalent-priced box. It even pulled our bass player away from his trusty whirlwind. Mine is used exclusively for a Gibson CL-40 with a passive pickup run through a fishman preamp, a boss chorus, and a boss delay/echo box. For that application, the DI has been basically transparent, clean, and trouble-free.

    Every studio should have one

    By Josh-igWhx

    from Fort Collins, CO

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    This is an indespensible tool. For recording I use it to DI my bass, which I mix with a mic on the cab, so I can get just the sound I want. For tracking drums I use this for guitar or bass to plug straight in and play along with the drummer.

    Surprisingly Good Performance!

    By NFV

    from Oakland, CA

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I've done shootouts with this against the CountryMan type 85 and the Radial J48. Head to head. The Countryman has slightly better bass response, and a slightly more open high end, but VERY similiar in tone. On a passive P-bass the difference was almost unnoticeable. On an active bass with EMGs, the difference was noticable, but not dramatic. Compared to the Radial, They were almost the same. I could hear little difference with the active instrument, and none with the passive. The Radial is built MUCH better in terms of build quality, but sounds almost identical.I've had two of these for 3 or 4 years, and both are still working very well. They are in low traffic studios and do irregular duty on live gigs. The only complaint I've got with them is the battery compartment isn't the best designed, it's a little too small for the clip, and the door cover would be easy to lose if you lost track of it. That said, if you are careful with the unit, you should have no issues with the compartment.

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I use this DI box live weekly with the following setup: acoustic guitar-floor effects-compressor-limiter-expander-gate-mixer. It is essential, and it does what it says: sends a balanced, powerful, and noise-free signal. I would not play live or in the studio without it.

    Behringer DI100 Direct Box

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    Great DI. Used in both live and studio environments with NO problems (phantom and battery power). Quiet, transparent and it works! What else should it do? The box is a little sensitive to the attenuation pushbuttons as far as distortion/noise and the ground lift does exactly what its supposed to do. Read the manual or at least know how to use any direct box before flaming Behringer over a possible operator error. I have been using Behringer gear for many years with no problems - find a better deal for the $$$.

    This DI box is built tough and has worked for me in lots of situations. Ground lift for my GR-33 synth, DI for keyboards, DI for acoustic guitar and DI on my Boogie Amp. I actually bought two more recently as I do sound sometimes also.

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I bought two of these SEVEN years ago. I'm still using the first, the second is the spare. The only dislike I have for this DI is the battery compartment, which is ridiculous and useless. I use Phantom power anyway. I have a Fishman Powerbridge on my Gibson RD77. A stereo out-jack separates the 'acoustic' signal, which goes straight to the Behringer DI. The Signal is clean, and powerful, and every sound tech I've worked with is amazed at this 'cheapie' DI. I love it and use it every gig...

    Great value for an active box

    By KDawg-0XMe0

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    The first one of these I bought actually didn't work. I got NO output out of it. I exchanged that one and the replacement works fine, however I'm a bit skeptical about how well it will hold up now. I'm quite pleased with how it sounds, though. Plenty of features, can be run off phantom power or 9v, which is a very nice thing, and the -20 or -40 padding is nice for close miking instruments. I have yet to see another active DI box at this price, and this one does the job quite well. Far better than passive boxes which are the only things I can find at this price.

    This Little Device Can Really Save The Day!!

    By Midnight Blue-V7B-k

    from Hagerstown, MD

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I have two of these units and I am going to buy four more!! They have proved to be invaluable on several of my "LIVE" recording sessions. Being able to plug high-impedance mics into it and get low-impedance 'mic level' out, or being able to get 'direct' signals from electric guitars or acoustic guitars with internal pickups and then get low-impedance balanced mic levels has been a blessing!! If you do any kind of stage performing and/or recording, you owe it to yourself to buy as many of these things as you can afford!! Like I said, I am going to buy FOUR more!! JBW

    Comments about Behringer ULTRA-DI DI100 Direct Box:

    I bought four of these well over two years ago. All four are still performing flawlessly. I have used them w/batteries (with no problems, they've even been left on for over a week or more and still worked at the gig w/o changing the batteries!) I have used them both with batteries and phantom power and I can't tell the difference. You simply can't buy a better direct box for the price. I use them for bass, keys, and guitar.

    Used to route an electric Strat guitar into church sound system. With the two pad switches you can optimize sound signal - adds no unwanted sound. For the price, give one a try.
