Behringer B-2 Pro
I use it for vocals, with a small prampli Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC 200 lamp, to the computer music. I use it for voice and harmonica.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year. The + + +: The sound seems good and prcis. The voice, organic and warm. No breath. Nothing wrong. I have not tried other models of micro condenser. Professionals are more demanding than I knew, but I'm happy with the trs rsultat and what I do, I could not gure esprer better. In addition, he has a mouth that micro book in his briefcase, made class. --- The: Only default finding the handle of the microphone was blackened trslgrement, may be in contact with its support. Or the + or -: I have, so far not seen any diffrence between the positions cardioid, omni, supercardiodes, but I did not really try to test them thoroughly. So, see ... Following a power recording studio, with high end mics (Neumann including ..) So Obviously, I need to have the ear of his aussiaiguise a Ingnieur chevraun trs is stupid, but I do not see the diffrence with the quality of Behringer (in rcoutant tracks one by one at home, with headphones). It Balot. Yes, I would do this choice. Good quality price.

Behringer B-2 Pro
Miking acoustic voice, violin and pipe organ
I tried the three keys.

OVERALL OPINION

For two months in room acoustics and recording in the studio.

The quality of manufacturing and accessories.

Micros DJ utiliss: AKG C1000S, NT3, CAD M177

To: In difficult conditions with many recording rverbe is the omni directivity given me the best rsultat with some atmosphere and a beautiful violin sound trs but impractical. For voice is the directivity in eight is the most efficient.

Cons: It is too heavy. It can be rough (loses precision) to a large mass of sound, a sound and aggressive in the treble gnre enough noise. Trs difficult to isolate even in cardioid mode.

More efficient in the studio atmosphere and much less prcis, balanced a Cad M177.

Behringer B-2 Pro
Everything has been said ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a little over a month to record tracks of acoustic instruments and vocals.

This microphone works great for recording acoustic guitars and classical. I also tested for the registration of harmonica and rendering is correct (to the limit a bit loud in the treble).

For cons, I did not like the song! It gives a sound and a cold, metallic timbre. Even with a pre-tube amp it's hard to fix it. You lose a lot of time to "hack" to get the equalizer at the end of a see through normal rendering.

Given its price, this microphone is a very good acquisition for a home studio. However, it is to know what use to give it. You can not record everything with and it's far from the Swiss Army knife that had behringer. Still I would do this choice.

Behringer B-2 Pro
Condenser microphone, I will not dwell on the specs, many others have done!

The accessories supplied (+ suspension + windshield case) are correct invoice, even if the suspension needs to be handled carefully.

The finish seems good, the micro trust. For 3 years I have, I have no problems.

OVERALL OPINION

SOUND:

When one is in its first static, we are always amazed! So much detail, as apparent definition, both sensitivity ... At first it does! And then we move to the professional (AKG C414 in my case) and then measuring the difference! Sometimes you read that micro (or others of the same class) are standard microphones to 1000 euros: NOTHING IS MORE WRONG! I regret having taken years to understand that!

In hindsight, we can say:
- The B2 has a good accuracy and a boost of high frequencies. On a low voice, spoken or serious, or a nylon guitar, it does very honorably! It's just natural, since missing the microphone creates high harmonics that distort the sound a bit. But that can not even realizes it when we can compare with a pro mic.

- The treatment of acute capacity becomes painful when you push on the voice. If you yell it, the sound becomes slightly aggressive, and you begin to gallery to the equalizer to mitigate this phenomenon. If your voice is nasal, or acute, I do not recommend this microphone!
In addition, it does not cash the very high levels of dynamic, fast ... and it saturates

- There are real holes in the low-medium frequencies! ... The comparison with the C414 is edifying! I found my voice in frequency ranges that I did not know!

- This micro lack of presence. You do not know to explain it, but you realize that bring out the vote in a responsible mix requires 3 or 4 plugins insert (comp, Equal ... etc) while a pro microphone gives you the right on.

I recommend a preamp that has a bit of character, if possible lamp (Blue Tube) rounded to the next "hard" the microphone.

The best advice I can give (I was given the same, but I did not listen!)
Spend much of your budget to the microphone! Believe me, you will not regret it! Even with a small preamp (Blue Tube, VTB-1) make do to nab an AKG C414, Neumann TLM103 or, for example ... 80% of your sound will be done! After the mix is ​​self-evident, the voice comes out alone, with natural warmth and balance! No Plugin can do nothing against using a microphone (such as B2), and I know what I mean! A C414 is 4 times more expensive, but 5 times better! Without a doubt ...

I put 7 as the quality / price is right!

Poet's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer B-2 Pro
Condenser microphone condenser. Double Diaphragm "large."
3 Directivity: Cardio, Omni, Figure 8.

Rather for making voice, and recovery of instruments.

Comes with case and suspension.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for two years.

I've used other models in the same price range, the more expensive too, also different static tube ... but often out of budjet I can devote to music.

Most:
+ With no breath.
+ A made more correct than the majority.
+ A definition of "awesome" sound for a user accustomed to dynamic mics (I remember the first time I rubbed two fingers against each other in front of a condenser microphone, with the result Daus DT770 headphones closed . In perfect silence, I felt like my ear roamed the surface of every cell of my fingers, in a flurry light, precise and supernatural!)
+ Accessories.
Efficiency + in some cases on men despite her nasal voice characteristics (4KHz bump), it is possible to make it more neutral ... and less type, which is quite surprising!
+ A possible interest in troubleshooting couple over-head battery, because their lack of effectiveness in heart can take when they are placed high enough in both cymbals, and toms charlet ... (I said in troubleshooting.)

The -:
- Rejection of inadequate cardiovascular sounds.
- Little difference between gross and omni cardio, with a lack of precision in high-volume listening situations.
- Lower mediums quite dull and without much life (that's more felt than anything else ...).
- Difficulties with the way women, often becoming aggressive with some subtle EQ.
- The acute parraître may well defined, but in reality rather aggressive than well defined.
- Alignment of the diaphragm with the outside of the capsule unsatisfactory. I compared 3, was not a parreil. There was one who had more than 30 ° with the axis of difference! In cardio, you think back a tool after placing the micro ... no luck, it's 30 degrees next! (Heureusemet there ear to correct ...)

The -:
- Very great difficulty in bringing out the voices of the rest of the mix. This is the main drawback of this microphone. Alone, it sounds more than good for its price and any bluffs unsophisticated user. on the other hand, in the mix, the voice is difficult to place, whether naturally or with a lot of equalization. It remains in the background, does not fit in line with the rest and becomes really understandable with a little volume and natural cuts, ultimately destabilizing the mix. It is this which leads me to a very divergent opinions of some users who advocate the store Neumann, Brauner & Co. ...

This microphone is excellent for home studio use ... but in my opinion does not blockbusters, and it is also not his goal! Do not compare what is comparable ...
Final year, the price / quality ratio, because that is essentially very interesting for users whose goal is the demo recording, acoustic instruments, vocal ensembles ... without the fuss (or in association).
There is no real competitor in this price range, and approximates more expensive microphones brands.

The use of the windscreen for a voice recording is not appropriate, in my opinion, because it does not allow placement of reference between the singer and mic ...
