The Behringer B-5 Gold-Sputtered Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone features two interchangeable capsules that offer cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns. This flexible design results in high-quality signal reproduction when capturing both vocals and instruments. The cardioid capsule provides maximum rejection of off-axis audio and ambiance, minimizing room noise and feedback. The omnidirectional capsule provides a generous pickup with uniform frequency response throughout. There is a -10 dB pad switch and low-frequency roll-off for suppressing low-frequency hum, rumble, and wind noise. The B-5 is suitable for capturing vocals, drum overheads, guitars, and similar instruments. The package includes a microphone stand adapter, a windscreen, and a carrying case.
