Overview

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.

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 got 8 of these for micing small to medium orchestras (15 to 75 performers), mostly in outdoor venues like gazebos. Also use them for some more conventional uses like ambient recordings, crown mics for earbud injection, drum overheads, acoustic instruments (mostly stringed). They perform just fine for these tasks. I've used Octavas in the past and, of course, was very pleased with them. However, they cost so much now that they're not price competitive for my small market. The Behringers fit perfectly. Highly recommended. They were actually recommended to me by a buddy who has 16 Octavas and would rent 8 of them to me for the one month season I need them for about the same amount these cost. Can't beat that!

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:

A steal for the cost! These mics are worth more than double what they are charged for.
BUT BEWARE! The clips they come with are VERY VERY tight! This makes for difficulty when removing the mics from the stands. USE CAUTION! I had to return mine because one broke after being jerked out of the very pressurized clips. Sure wish those were adjustable!
Other than that, these mics are great. Perfect for Field Recording!!!

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

    They are great mics for the price. I have used them to mic choirs. Great sounding mics. Not as clean as the really high priced ones. But for the price I have got my moneys worth. I can't comment about how long they will last. But a decent mic for a good price.

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

        I got these to serve as a stereo pair for close micing acoustic guitar. I do the standard setup of pointing one toward the sound hole and the other at the neck. The included stereo mic mount works perfectly for this application. The mics get good sound and great detail for this application. With careful tweaking with an outboard preamp, I get great audio, with extremely minimal self noise (virtually none) and a detailed, hot signal. Great for solo finger style acoustic guitar recording. I'm using the behringer tube ultra gain mic200 as my mic pre with these. So, very, very affordable setup for a pro level sound.
        The only drawback is that there is no isolation mount for these mics. So, they are susceptible to picking up 'rumble' from the floor.

            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.
