I've been performing for over 40 years and always bought what was considered the top of the line products several years ago. I recently got two of these mics as part of a P.A. package and found they are probably at least 25% more sensitive than those I bought in the past. If you get a chance, put these along side better known brand names and see what you think. For my money, this three-pack is an incredible deal. They are study, dependable and better than average quality performers. Thanks Behringer and Guitar Center for making quality affordable. Mr. Music
I own the audio technica M8000 and read many reviews about the XM8500. So I gave them a try. Its an OK mic. They have it at the studio where I reherse, and they are definatelly durable. Im going to use them to mic the guit cabs.. and with a little EQ they should sound fine.. but as for vocals, the M8000 sounds a bit brighter. side by side .. I would go with the Audio Tech for male singers.
These mics are great. Our Church has about 6 of these. I perform them over the SM58's that we have. You don't get a lot of feedback and the sound coming from them is rich, thick and smooth. We also use them on our Drumset and get a nice sound that fills the chapel. Highly recommand these to anyone.
A phenominal mike at a fire sale price!!! I'm amazed at the quality sound and rugedness.
I haven't had these long but I did a couple of A/B tests against a Shure SM58, Audix OM2, and a nice AKG mic in our rehearsal studio. These mics stood up to the test. Clear and strong. Possibly a little louder than the SM58. They seem to be well built and very sturdy. For this price, I couldn't afford to pass them up. The carrying case alone was a plus over the usual pouches you get with other mics.
The sound from these mics are very crisp. Theres really no way your going to get feedback unless your mixer sucks. They are very durable. Ive dropped them on concrete from mic stands and no dents or scratches even. There being no on/off switch doesn't really matter since you have to be close to the mics to get any sound out of them. Overall these mics are amazing and not just because, they aren't expensive but thats a plus.
After having one microphone for a while, my band decided it was time to mic the backup singers. We bought these Behringer mics because of the low price. We got more than we expected. The sound is crisp, and there isn't interference. I would recommend these if you have a low budget.
I own these and enjoy them. The cardioid pattern is very far from hypercardioid however, and I find it hard not to get feedback in smaller areas. The sound is nice, and the mics are very durable, but there is no on/off switch on the mics and that doesn't go well with the feedback problem I often have. They are what they're advertised to be. As a low budget hobbyist I am satisfied, though not awestruck.
