The Behringer B-2 Pro is a stereo large diaphragm condenser microphone that is designed for use in the recording studio. The mic has two separate capsules and all, along with it's own power supply and 5 pin cable. The mic has a frequency response ranging from 30 Hz to 20 kHz and has cardioid, figure eight, and omni directional pick up patterns to choose from. The mic also comes with a case and it's own shock mount.


OVERALL OPINION

As far as stereo microphones go, you aren't going to find many of them that are cheaper than the Behringer B-2 Pro . More and more you're starting to see microphones like this for cheaper, but I haven't seen many stereo microphones going for this low price. Of course you're getting a cheaply made stereo microphones, but it's a stereo microphone nonetheless and it actually sounds pretty nice. I've only used the Behringer B-2 Pro as a room microphone while recording a drum kit, but it did a really nice job of picking up the ambient sound in the room, while giving a very nice stereo spread feel. It's nice that you don't have to worry about phasing or anything, so in the future I'd definitely like to try out the Behringer B-2 Pro as drum overheads as well. I've used a few other microphones from Behringer, but this is probably the best bang for your buck out of any of them I've used. This would be fine in either a professional or home studio, but only in a professional studio if you're going to use it once and a while. If you want a stereo mic to use on a daily basis, I'd recommend something like the Shure VP88 instead, as it sounds better and will last longer. However, if you're interested in a good sounding stereo microphone on the cheap, the Behringer B-2 Pro is the way to go.
