How many of their things have you owned, what models?
I bought one of their small battery powered mixers and when you run it off of batteries the sound is terrible.. it just doesn't function the same as when it's plugged in. Besides that I have barely used this thing and several of channels have issues with dropping out completely in the stereo mix... seems to be a problem with the stereo channels when you are only plugged into the mono channel.
Their stereo delay pedal has a noticeable pop in the looper making it useless.
I bought one of their power amps .. one of the channels blew the first time I used it.. got it repaired under warranty only to discover that the other channel no longer worked.. so I put it storage and bought another amp that has worked flawlessly every since. Sure the other amp cost more than twice as much but it has worked without problem for years which is far more valuable to me than worrying that this cheap piece of crap might die at any time.. I don't give a fuck if it has a warranty or not.
I have a few other pedals that I bought while I was in the UK because I didn't bring everything I needed and I guess they are okay and the enclosures are cheap plastic.. can't really imagine them holding up under actual use as a foot pedal. One of them was a distortion pedal.. it's okay I guess.. not inspiring.
Maybe they have resolved some of these issues but it used to be a regular thing for people to complain about broken multi pin power connectors on the mixers also certain models of their pedals would not function correctly off of the battery.
I have a few other items .. one is a tube base enhancer which works fine but the analog meters on the front are damaged due to the use of cheap plastic but then again the asshole I bought it from thought he could pack them with sandwich bags filled with air as air pillows.
Also I really hate how they use the brightest possible LED's on their pedals.. they are blinding.
So in short.. the shit is cheap.. that is the best reason to buy Behringer.
RE: the story of electronic device getting wet.. assuming it was not turned on before all the moisture was removed this is not an amazing feat but please everyone feel free to dunk their Behringers in a bathtub .. please.. I beg you and then plug in back in and jump into the tub with it..
