Very realistic vocal reproduction.
What is your opinion of this product?
With a small amount of compression using the Yamaha MG12XU, vocals are clear and clean. Great price for really impressive sound.

For the money you cant beat it. Its not a Neuman, but its not $1500 either.
What is your opinion of this product?
I use it for amp cabs as a second mic inline and back from the first mic to get some room. They are a little mid sounding but eq out pretty well. This is a great mic for any demo studio situation with a tight budget.

Your general opinion of this product.
I added this mic to the recording "arsenal" to capture voice and acoustic guitar. It is used in conjunction with a Rode NT3, which is "aimed" at the acoustic guitar and the B1 does vocals and some guitar. This mic sounds fabulous, and vastly exceeded my expectations. At $99 the value is unbelievable. I could not be more pleased. EQ was not an issue, it fits well in the mix, and the clarity really is superb. If the your musical ability is "better" than this mic, you're not likely to be reading this; your staff is buying equipment for you!

Biggest Bang for the Buck!
Your general opinion of this product.
After specing the B-1 and considering the price, I thought the gamble was worth it, so I ordered two! I do a lot of voice recording and the B-1 has performed exceptionally well from the "in your face" screaming announcers, to the soft-spoken female. The proximity effect is the best I've heard, even when I compare it to a 414! Since these mics come with their own case and shock mounts, I've taken my pair of B-1's for recording gigs for choirs and orchestras. The prescence is phenominal! The only drawback I've encountered is their sensitivity. These mics will pick up everything in the cardiod field and do not have to be "worked" closely (except for effect). Mouth noise and clothing movement are the only things I have to pay attention to when using the B-1. I'm not using any special mic pre-amps or EQ so that attests to the beautiful true performance of this affordable mic that every studio should have!
