The Behringer B-1 large diaphragm condenser microphone is manufactured for project and professional engineers who favor quality at an affordable price point. The B-1 features a pressure gradient, capsule that delivers a transparent 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response while handling with an SPL rating of 138dB (148dB with Pad). The result is clean transparent audio even at extreme transient peak levels. The B-1 features a cardioid polar pattern, minimizing off-axis audio and noise caused by ambiance, noise additional instruments etc. A -10dB pad switch provides even further headroom when recording loud signals that can distort on input. A Low-frequency roll-off switch minimizes low-end noise at 75Hz (6dB / Octave).
