Question about Behringer B-1 Professional Microphone

1 Answer

Why is my mic not picking up noise like it did when i first gotit

I got my behringer b-1 about two weeks ago and it was working great. i have it hooked up though a tascam us122 driver, into a windows xp, and i'm using some recording software called n-track. a week ago it was recording sound great. two days ago i plugged in the mic and it is still picking up noise, but not nearly as sensitive as it used to be. even with the driver turned all the way up and my face to the mic the vu meter on n-track was not going into the red zone. so i'm not sure if this is a mic problem, driver problem, or software problem. i'm quite new to this whole recording process and thought i'd start by asking you. thanks

Double-check on the side of the microphone to make sure you didn't inadvertently activate the 10db pad.  If so, switch it back to the center position.
Also, on the US-122, make sure that the input is set to "mic" and that you have switched the Phantom Power to the "On" position.

    UPDATE:  You may also want to make sure that you are using the front of the mic.  The front is indicated by the side with the Behringer logo.

How can I reduce white noise / hissing I'm getting over the mic on a Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB setup?


Hi, you didn't say if the mic actually passes sound? The C-1 is a condenser Mic & needs phantom power - switch on the rear of your mixer. If that's no help, what happens if you disconnect the mic, then turn the levels back up? Still hissing or gone? If it's gone then it's the Mic - must use a 3 wire cable, preferably XLR so it gets the phantom power. If the hiss is still there without the Mic then sounds like the mixer is faulty - try some of the other channels..... How loau is the hiss - just in the background or as load as a vocal "one, two" test? A few things to check anyway...... Good Luck!

My Behringer PMP1280S INPUT Chanel 1 is no longer working, after pulling out the mic XLR plug whilst the amp was still turned on.


You should be able to unplug a mic from the xlr input with the unit on with no problem.
I beleive the problem is that the xlr input jack has one or more legs broken off the board. If you dsassemble the board and resolder the three legs to the board you'll probably fix the problem.

My aim is to be able to drive a sine wave generator directly from vocals through a microphone. The set up I have planned so far goes - microphone (Behringer B-1) - Power supply (Behringer PS400) - min


  1. Yes, you need the PS400 with the B-1. Alternatively, you can connect the mic to a mixer with built-in phantom power.
  2. The PS400 shouldn't go directly to to the TA2020 because the power supply is providing a mic-level signal and the amp is looking for a line-level signal. Either add a mic preamp after the power supply, or if a mixer is used, that output can be fed to the amp.
  3. Cabling will depend on what you ultimately choose to do. But, you'll at least need a mic cable to go from the B-1 to the power supply or a mixer.

Xenyx 502usb not picking up mic


It sounds like you have a condenser mic hooked up to the XLR input. Phantom is not available on the other inputs, just the XLR.

Check page 8 of the manual. http://www.behringer.com/assets/Q1202USB_Q1002USB_Q802USB_Q502USB_M_EN.pdf

Hello so i got a new c-1 and about 2 weeks ago i havent been able the use it, i have a mobile pre m audio , but the red light on the c-1 wont turn on and no sound goes through . helpp :c


The C-1 is a condenser microphone, which means that it requires phantom power in order to function. Most M-Audio products will provide phantom power, so it would just be a matter of pressing the button or switch (it might be marked +48 or +48v). If your M-Audio device doesn't have such a button or switch, you'll need to upgrade to a preamp that does in order to use that mic. If you do turn it on and it still doesn't work, there's something wrong with either the cable or the microphone itself.

I am hooking up a Behringer xenyx 1002B Mic/Line Mixer to my Toshiba Satellite c885-S5194 laptop to broadcast online via meridix. I'm using Audio technica BPHS1 Headset Microphones with XLS plugs and 1/4...


IF your Laptop has a stereo LINE 1/8" INPUT jack, you can take the Stereo ( Left & Right ) LINE outputs on your mixer and feed into this jack on your PC. You will need a 1/4" dual plug for the mixer end to a single 1/8" stereo plug on the PC end. I suspect the problem you are having is either related to your PC only have a MIC input jack or you have something set wrong in your PC's sound config. file. More information is needed to properly solve the problem.

How do I get my Behringer C-1U mic to work?


I'm having the same problem, however I can say that Phantom Power is out of the question. the c-1u is a variation of the c-1. The difference is that the u doesnt require phantom power

Mic to PC


This mic is a condenser type microphone. It needs phantom power (48v) to operate. Might want to buy a USB mic preamplifier box, like an M-Audio product, which will provide phantom power, xlr/1/4 inch inputs and USB output.

Connecting an M Audio Fast Track USB to a Behringer XENYX 1002


I suppose that you connect the behringer mixer master out (just one of the two channels in case of two) to the guitar input of the Fast Track. Have you tried to hear your mic from the phones output at the front panel of the Fast Track? Try changing the guitar gain and the output level at the top of the Fast track.

I'm waiting for your results or clarification, please post.

Thanks and regards

My microphone doesn't do it right.


Some of the Podcast mics are condenser mics and MUST be used with a preamp or DEVICE that supplies PHANTOM power to the mic.

You computer DOESN"T supply Phantom power.

Read up on Phantom power in Google to understand it.
