Now MXL does not have a good reputation when it comes to mics, but this mic just blew me away! After hooking it up to the Blue Icicle, it sounded mellow and very like the MXL 990. Then I put it on the Behringer Xenyx 802 and it came to life in a second. It has a warm feeling to it with what ever you record. I've never had a single problem when it came to recording with it. It always gave me crisp and clear recordings. The only downside is that you will be able to hear people from the other side the wall very clearly. Your best bet would to isolate it with a box or even put it in a closet.

The mike itself is fine but I run into big problems when I mount it. I'm a drummer and this thing is almost too sensitive.
I'll have to experiment with it to solve the pick up. I'll have to figure out some shield. can't recommend for drummers.

Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

Just make sure you have a +48V because the mic requires it to work , i did not read that when i bought it but luckily i had it on my interface.
I can really say how durable this product is because since i got it i left it right on its mic stand and since them i have not moved it. That was last YEARS BF 2015 for the same price. I haven't experiment with other mics other than a Sure beta 58 and a regular 58... But this guy is just awesome... it picks up everything... i use pod farm and just add the compressor and maybe some Rev. and it rocks... if you are looking for something just to do your on music at home to me, there is no better one.... and let's not start with acoustic guitars , wow, just awesome... I do not know why would you pay more for other condenser mic when this is the s # ! t....

      Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

      As a small HOME Pro Tools studio owner , I have gone back to the V250 over and over again.Very consistent and although not considered a high end mic, it delivers excellent consistent performance with each session. Key word, consistent. I have several low to medium priced LD and SD mics but this one gets the call more often for vocals and AC guitars . Open room with a foam vocal shield mounted behind the mic.

        I bought this on a whim because it was on sale. I'm glad I did. It's no Neumann, but for the price it's got good, clear sound. I'm using it for vocals, both singing and voice acting, and have zero complaints after a few weeks of use.

            If all you have ever used is a dynamic mic, you are gonna freak out on this thing. The sound is exceptional. Never pay the full price for this. It often goes on sale for around $80 or even less. Totally worth it.

            I'm only just getting started with doing some minor voice recording and streaming use, but this thing is perfect for beginners.
            You do need a mixer to power it, so factor that into your budget as well.
