    AKG C 414 B-ULS - "A must have."

  • Behringer C-3

    Behringer C-3 - "Noisy microphone!"


    The Behringer C3 is a cheap electret microphone with switchable patterns. OVERALL OPINION The Behringer C3 is no doubt the crappiest microphone I ever bought! The noise level is so high that it is almost not usable. Especially in omni and figur…
