Today 'cheap' general-purpose mics tend to be electrets - simple
electret capsules can be mass-produced much cheaper than dynamic
ones. Dynamic mics, at least good ones, tend to be specialised for
vocal use, while ribbons dominate the high-quality non-condenser

I'd avoid anything called Behringer, and go for example for some
of the cheaper AKG electrets.
