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.

once again

By boo

from Gainesville, VA

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

Behringer always seems to amaze how they can sell their amazing gear for so little. this mic rules. better than 58. picks up screams super good. we use them for lead vocals and backup as well as drum overheads. insane mic. buy it before the price goes up!

Why use a '58?

By Bretman

from Iowa City

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

I bought one of these over a year ago to use for jam sessions instead of my Shure, and ended up buying 2 more! They're hotter than a '58, seem to have a tighter pickup pattern (less feedback issues), and sound very similar. They also come in a very nice hardshell plastic case with foam lining. I can now mic up my whole band for less than the price of 1 SM58, (which are great btw). So this is a no-brainer...just get 1, or 2 or 3!

Amazing quality. Better than any Shure mic.

By C.a

from Palo Alto California

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

Ok so I've been in a Metalcore/Death Metal band for a year now. And I've bought the shure mic's and they where good. But eventually came the day they broke. I spent tooo much money on just one of those, I didnt want to constantly buy a shure mic that I knew i'd eventually break. So came the day I went on guitar center and looked for a mic that had 5 star rating but not as expensive. I then found this. I was really not sure if I should buy this at first or if it was really good like Shure, but I said "hell why not". As I eagerly waited for it, Finally the day came that the package recieved to my house. Right when i opened it, I plugged it into my Amp and with the exact same settings i left my amp on when I had my shure, It came out louder, better, and had a very nice echo just like shure. I right away thought "why the hell wouold everyone buy a shure? This is WAYYYYY better than any other mic i've ever had" Now not only was it very good for screaming but when my guitarist did his normal singing on it, it sounded beautiful than ever. From the effects it makes live and practice, this thing is really good for recording, your recording would be the exact same like which would be a 5*. I recomend this to EVERYONE to buy instead of shure mics. This makes shure look like nothing.

Nice Starter

By Reading Falcon Records

from Reading, PA

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

If you don't really know if recording music is your thing but you have a good feeling about it, choose this mic. The low cost is perfect for you if you're not sure you want to shell out the big bucks. It is a surprisingly mid-high quality piece and I used it to record my first CD for my new company. Try it out, there's no harm in that.

Great Mic

By Don

from KC, KS

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

I have a small DJ side business and was using cheap mics with terrible results. I was debating whether to get an expensive Sure or stick with the cheaper mics. This mic is awesome; it has so much clarity and little to no distortion and has been an asset to my DJ business. One other note; I bought this online and the first one that arrived did not work, I called the customer service number and was treated extremely well and a replacement was sent out immediately as I told the CS advocate that I had a gig in four days, Guitar Center gets all of my business now.

Beats Shure SM57 or 58

By Blonde B3

from Bakersfield, CA 93305

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

I went to the local music store convinced I wanted a Shure mic. The owner found out I wanted mics for the church and suggested a straight across test with the XM8500 vs the Shure mics. I couldn't believe it. THe Behringer sounded way better, and way louder - and they made the PA at Church sound better than it ever had before. I ended up also picking up an XM8500 to use as my personal mic in our Christian Blues band, and again it easily beat out the SM57's the band has been using. I highly recommend the Behringer - besides...for the cost, if I ever lose it or it does happen to break down, I can buy two more and I will still have spent less than one Shure costs. Oh, and Guitar Center beat the local music store's price so I bought three more!

One Of The Best.

By Daniel Kritner

from Lake Tapps, WA

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

I bought 4 of these mics about 2 years ago and have loved every minute of them. They are not better than SM58s, they're comparable to them. Every last inch of this microphone is a SM58, but it says behringer on it and it's alot cheaper. It is of preference choice whether to do these or shure's SM58s. I came across behringer's mics when I purchased a mixer and 2 speakers from behringer and wanted to match with what I had. I figured, give them a try, it was the best choice I ever made.

Dece

By Graham Williams

from Factoryville, Pa

Comments about Behringer XM8500 Microphone:

as one other person said, the output is a little weak. when i use it into my behringer ultracoustic 45 watt amp, which can take guitar and vocals, i have to have the vocal channel volume doubled to the guitar channel volume. plus the clip is for european stands. so you need to buy a new clip generally. the case is reall nice tho and for the price, if your a loud singer and you just buy a 5/8 clip then you're good.
