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.

      Good little mic at a nice price. Used for home karaoke setup. Comparable, if not better than most $50 mics.

        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.

        Comes in a great case, Sound is amplified OK but outside a coffee shop-forget it. This isn't a Shure but it didn't cost anywhere close to one either and it comes in a case sure doesn't even offer

            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 bought this mic because I had to replace one that I had lost. I myself use a Crown headset but use a hand mic for my guest performers who sit in on my show. I was about to buy a more expensive mic when this one caught my eye. I figured for the money, I couldn't go wrong. As it turns out, this is a gem. Not only for the price but is a good product. Don't be afraid of this mic. A friend of mine tried it and bought two. Even if you don't like it for live performances (I can't imagine why), it's great for studio. Low handling noise. I'm going to take a closer look at other Behringer products.

                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. .
