Back to Product Information
Sound: this mic is awesome on voice recording using omni cartridge. it's got a very flat response-it has absolutely no tinny upper end-it's real smoothe and excellent on acoustic instruments as well. with pad it's max spl's are 150 !! Feature: you also get a cardiod cartridge- for 90 bucks this small condenser mic sounds alot better on vocal recordings than a Rode NT1A and the At30305 by Audio Technica which by the way both sell for200 bucks and are strictly cardiod!! Value: there's no other mic that can compete dollar for dollar. The Wow Factor: I'm going to get at least 4 of these .

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: This is a pretty good dual capsule microphone for $90. I have compared it to the Oktava MK 012 and the Studio Projects C-4, and there is a noticeable difference in sound quality: the MK 012 sounds better than the B5, and the C-4 sounds better than the MK 012. The B5 It is worth the $90 asking price, but paying more will get you a better sounding mic in the SP C-4. Feature: Fully equipped with dual capsules, pad, and bass roll-off switch, and case. Quality: Seems very well crafted. Value: Worht the asking price in today's market of high-quality, low-cost mics. Manufacturer Support: Behringer's tech support peoiple are not always terribly well informed. The Wow Factor: I will find a use for it. Probably micing tambourine and other percussion for live performance

Sound: THIS MICROPHONE DEFINITELY EXCEEDS THE PRICE/PERFORMANCE GAUGE. IT WORKS EXTREMELY WELL ON MICING ACOUSTIC GUITAR AND OTHER ACOUSTIC STRING INSTRUMENTS. IT ALSO WORKED BEAUTIFULLY ON VOCALS WHEN USING THE OMNI CARTRIDGE!! YOU WILL NOT GO WRONG WITH THIS MIC. Feature: THIS MIC COMES WITH AN OMNI DIRECTIONAL AND A CARDIOD CARTRIDGE WHICH BOTH WORK VERY NICELY. THE MIC ALSO COMES WITH A MIC CLIP FOR USE WITH A MICROPHONE STAND AND A FOAM POP FILTER. Quality: THE B-5 IS MADE PRETTY STURDILLY. THE CARTRIDGES SCREW ON AND HAVE GOLD CONTACTS WHICH CONNECT TO THE MIC BODY. Value: PRICEWISE AND QUALITYWISE YOU'LL DO WELL WITH THIS PRODUCT- IT'LL BE MIC THAT YOU'LL USE IN YOUR STUDIO THAT'LL DO THE JOB. MY PREFERENCE IS USE THE OMNI CARTRIDGE. IT HAS A MORE OPEN AND FLATTER RESPONSE. Manufacturer Support: I HAVE HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER BEHRINGER PRODUCTS AND THE B-5 IS PROBABLY THE BEST YET! Overall: BUY IT.
