this mic has a great sound, after running it thru various amps(and karaoke machines)it still sounded teriffic. the clean vocals sounded impresivly clear for a mic of its price range, & the screaming vocals sounded brutal but toned. the only problem w/ it is that it broke the 1st time i dropped it, the floor was concrete but it broke even tho the fall wasnt hi. im considering a sennheiser or shure, but probably not this one again.

    Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

    Sure, I thought, around twenty bucks it might be a throwaway. Nope! Sounds very good. Not exactly a Shure or Sennheiser....But Darn close!! Behringer has some not so good product lines and then they have some good products. This is one of those Good ones.

        Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

        I use this when leading worship, the only complaint is it is nearly too hot at times! Sound reproduction is very solid for the price point and I highly recommend it for budget minded folks. I have been using this in a smaller church for about 6 months now and could not be more pleased with the over-all performance. I will buy this again.

            I replaced my Peavey PVI100's for the Behringer XM8500 microphones. These mics sound so smooth and clean it beats other microphones at this price range. If your thinking about buying the sure SM58's, the Behringer XM8500 is just as good.

                Just the right amount of high frequency emphasis for good vocal clarity. Also, just the right amount of proximity effect. Heavy, feels solid in your hand. It makes our singers sound good, so they like them!

                  Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

                  I honestly can't believe how good this microphone is for the price! Its sound is outstanding! I've used it already a couple of times in rehearsals for a possible band a friend and I are thinking about starting. My friend has a nice home studio and mostly uses Shure SM58's and one higher end AKG. The first time I used this Behringer mic - my friend was blown away! Not only did it sound clearer than his Shure's and the AKG, but it had a decent amount higher output at the same gain level. Its frequency range was excellent as well. It was as clear and natural as can be with the highest highs and the lowest lows with no muddiness or breakup of any kind. It's also well made and durable and I can't more highly recommend it for anyone that's doing live performances or any kind of pro recording. .
