Sorry, this item is not available.

A dual-diaphragm condenser microphone that offers several sound pickup patterns to professionally record vocals and acoustic instruments.

The Behringer C-3 dual-diaphragm condenser microphone brings studio-quality audio capture within reach. With its cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-eight polar patterns, the C-3 mic adapts to capture vocals, acoustic instruments and more with lifelike detail. The C-3 mic culminates in a durable gold-plated XLR output connector for reliable performance. Discover how the Behringer C-3 condenser microphone can bring out the best in your recordings.

Three Switchable Polar Patterns for Versatile Recording

The Behringer C-3 condenser microphone puts optimal polar pattern selection right at your fingertips. Choose between cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-eight pickup patterns to adapt the C-3 mic to your particular recording application. The cardioid setting rejects unwanted room noise for focused source capture. Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all around to convey a natural, open ambience. Figure-eight mode brings instrumental separation and control over stereo imaging. Whether close-miking vocals and instruments or capturing room sound, the C-3 condenser mic's switchable polar response lets you tailor its sensitivity to match your needs.

Dual-Diaphragm Design That Captures Nuance

At the heart of the Behringer C-3 is its pressure gradient transducer sporting a thoughtfully implemented dual-diaphragm design. Having two diaphragms allows the C-3 condenser microphone to reproduce sound with outstanding accuracy and improved transient response. Each 16 mm diaphragm is shock mounted to minimize vibrations for remarkably low self noise. Together they handle plosives smoothly and convey intricate textures, dynamic contrasts and subtle details often missed by single-diaphragm models. The C-3 brings out the most lifelike qualities in vocals and acoustic instruments to help make your recordings shine.

Wide Frequency Response and High SPL Handling

From the subtle shimmer of a ride cymbal to the powerful thump of a kick drum, the Behringer C-3 condenser mic captures your sound with clarity and depth. Its extended 40Hz–18kHz frequency response maintains tonal balance across the spectrum. Even at high SPLs up to 142dB, the C-3 retains its poise to cleanly convey loud guitar amps, drum kits and more at close range. Whether you're recording the delicate tones of an acoustic guitar or the full-throttle energy of a rock band, you can rely on the C-3's wide frequency range and high max SPL to reproduce audio faithfully.
