super low volume issue
Klicer, 06.05.2020
It sounds decent, but I have to turn the gain high up which makes it pick up everything, even breathing I guess. Also sounds crap like that. The main issue I have with this mic and why I'm getting a new one (XM8500) is the extremely low volume, and there is nothing you can really do to fix it.

When you're a tiny bit too far away you are barely audible, but if you turn it up and get too close to it, it starts sounding really bad. Just a mess on trying to get it sounding like it's full potential. Without this issue, I would probs give it 4-5 stars

The Behringer C1U was my first ever USB microphone, and it served me well! It saw the purchase of my first interface, as well as my first ever attempts at releasing songs! It miked amps, it tracked vocals, worked with Audacity, Reaper and Ableton, faithfully for low price.
BUT it was not a perfect piece of gear. Toward the end of its life it began to buzz uncontrollably and feedback to the degree where I couldn't even do a skype call with it, let alone record vocals. It lasted a touch over a year, which was all I can really ask from a mic at this price. Well worth the money

Nice quality for the price
KamKI, 25.08.2020
The microphone comes with the USB cable, instruction and some base mount.

Sound quality is nice . For this price it is very good.

It is relatively heavy, metal device. Good feel in hand.

Plug&play -quick start.

Behringer C1U and You
Stuart W., 22.07.2013
I decided to choose the Behringer C1U because of 2 distinct reasons.

1) Behringer are a brand I personally trust to manufacture high-quality and affordable products.

2) It was a fantastic price on the Thomann website.

I use it for sampling, recording vocals, as a temporary boom mic and a web mic for Skype, etc. It delivers exactly what you'd expect; clean, sharp and crisp sound.

The only factor I have against it is it can often shock me if I get too close to the mic while singing.

All in all it's got a great sound, really responsive and cheap.

4/5 only for the shocking.
