As you're in Europe is suggest looking at the Orchid electronic stuff.

They have more expensive DI equipment too. That's the cheapest. All really good kit.
Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top
Jet City JCA5212RC (SLO Modded)
Ibanez WD7 Wah
Mad Professor Sweet Honey Overdrive
TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay
TC Electronic Trinity Reverb

An ART Pro Tube MP or an Alesis MicTube would be a nice deal - cheap, tube-featuring, and both pre and DI.

Also, yours is not a DI box problem, your is a Behringer problem - pretty much every other DI Box out there sound better.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

If you really want a DI box that's passive, simple & reliable, then look into the Whirlwind IMP2. It's US $40 & should be available online in Europe or see if you can order one from US, I doubt it would be uber expensive to ship to Norway.

DI boxes with speaker sims differ in sound when you use the speaker sims, otherwise it's more about build quality & features. Ofcourse using cheapo parts means sound quality can suffer too.
