The C-1U USB Studio Condenser Microphone from Behringer is well suited for capturing vocals and instruments in digital recording environments. It features a USB output for plug-and-play style recording with a laptop or desktop computer. The USB output allows you to record using your preferred software without interfaces or preamplifiers. This low-noise condenser microphone contains a cardioid pick-up pattern for reducing ambient room noise and feedback. The C-1U can be used in a wide range of situations, including vocals, piano, guitar, and amp-cabinets. It includes a swivel mount and a USB cable.

What is a USB Condenser Microphone
The primary type of microphone used in recording studios and radio stations, condenser microphones are the ideal choice for capturing vocals and acoustic instruments. Unlike a dynamic microphone, a condenser microphone collects sound from throughout an environment such as a room, rather than only picking up what’s happening directly in front of it. It is capable of capturing much more detail with a wider, flatter frequency response. But conventional condenser microphones aren’t designed to interface with a computer – you also have to provide a microphone preamplifier and an analog-to-USB interface. The C-1U features a built-in USB interface that derives the needed power directly from your computer’s USB input and requires no special drivers. Just plug in and start recording your masterpiece!

Wide Frequency Response
The incredible C-1U has an exceptionally-fl at frequency response and pristine sonic resolution that ensures content-rich audio that is as natural sounding as the original source. The cardioid pickup pattern provides unparalleled sound source separation and feedback rejection. Thanks to its ultra-low noise, transformer-less FET input circuitry the C-1U can handle extreme dynamics, all the way up to 136 dB, with ruler-fl at frequency response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz. Which brings us to software.

But That’s Not All…
The C-1U condenser mic is designed to be your go-to USB mic for many years to come. The tough, die-cast metal body can withstand the rigors of all those late-night recording marathons – and since it can be powered directly from your laptop’s USB port, you can take it anywhere, and record when the muse inspires you! An excellent choice for all sorts of recording applications, the studio-grade C-1U is available at a price that will leave enough cash left over to secure other recording essentials.

  1. Adekunle Temitope

    i like to just play and sing and i realized i could use some software on my laptop and make some pretty cool songs. this mic fits the bill. simple, well made, nice warranty, and attractive product. i don’t get too crazy about the details, if it can capture music and is easy to use and doesn’t cost a ton of money, works for me.

  2. Chioma

    I bought the C-1U for voice over work for my company. I did a ‘trial’ voice over using this mic and it went “up the line” at headquarters to the point that I’m now the “voice” for the company. This mic is easy to use, good sound, easy to use (I use it with Windows 7) and so far I like it. The computer “sees” the mic as a “DVD Quality” microphone. No noise. Clear voice recording.

    ought this mic because I’m very familiar with the brand and I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed, and sure enough, I wasn’t disappointed. This is a good quality mic for the price. It’s not made out of cheap plastic like some mic, but it is metal. Nice clean tone and easy to set up and use.

    My son plays guitar and uses the microphone to record his music directly on the computer. The microphone provides excellent recording quality but has no stand included. If it had a stand it would have been a solid five stars!

    Really enjoying the mic; the sound quality is solid for voiceovers and youtube video.
