Behringer C-2 Stereoset

Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone StereosetThese 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.

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.

Great little condenser microphones
Adrian3174, 09.12.2015
I bought these for recording live bands. The microphones come in a foam filled plastic carry case which is great for storage and should protect the microphones when they are in transit. The build quality of the microphones is good; they come complete with clips and a twin mounting bar for placement on a microphone stand. The microphones also come with a pair of windshields which are fine but don't expect to be able to use these outdoors without additional protection from the wind. The microphones have a switchable low pass filter and a -10dB pad but unfortunately it is not possible to use both at the same time. Of course these microphones require phantom power and as such cannot be connected to some recorders directly. Either a mixer with phantom power or a phantom power inserter such as the Millenium PP2B Phantom Power Supply will need to be used with entry level recorders such as the Tascam DR-05 etc.

Sound quality is surprisingly good for a microphone at this price point. The response is smooth and well extended. Self generated noise is also low but not as good as a large diaphragm condenser. If you need to use these for vocals then you would most likely need a popkiller as plosives at short range cause the microphones to pop as you would expect.

If you are looking for microphones for live recordings and you are on a budget then these are well worth considering.
