With the BEHRINGER vocal microphone ULTRAVOICE XM8500, your voice will shine in a way it never has before, giving a powerful edge to your performances. Your creative energy and highly professional demands finally have a worthy partner. You want your voice to come across at its best, capturing your audience with its power and expression. No problem: with the ULTRAVOICE XM8500, you've got them in your hands.

Bringing out the subtlest nuances and placing them properly in the mix: that's what a good vocal microphone is all about. And that's exactly what the ULTRAVOICE does. Its cardioid characteristic picks up sound from the front with the utmost sensitivity, while strongly dampening sound from the back. This gives you more security against feedback. The integrated shock-mount system effectively reduces handling noise to an absolute minimum. The XM8500's balanced low-impedance output lets you connect it to any console or microphone preamp - provided it has enough dynamic headroom. You'll need plenty of that: the ULTRAVOICE is so powerful that you'll put your current favorite microphone in its box. Even if it cost ten times as much.

On stage, dependability counts. The ULTRAVOICE won't let you down. Its rugged construction protects it against the toughest changes you can put it through. The matte anodized surface reduces reflections from studio or stage lighting. The two-stage pop filter and tough steel mesh keep breath and pop noises out of the signal.

    I bought 4 of these cardioid microphone to replace a beat up old Shure SM58 and a missing Sennheiser cardioid. I had heard that this Behringer design was based on the SM58 and that it was sturdy but after recording for a while with them (in the studio and on location) I am very impressed with the audio quality as well as the strength of its build; especially at this price!

        Comments about Behringer XM8500 - Dynamic ULTRAVOICE Mic:

        First, kudos to B&H for the VERY quick service. Thank you!I was in radio and TV broadcasting for almost 40 years and now do freelance voiceovers in my retirement, so I am very familiar with microphones.I settled on the XM8500 as a new V/O mic after reading the great reviews here and on other sites. The price seeemed too good to be true but, hey, for $ bucks why not give it a try?What a pleasant surprise! The first thing I noticed was the sturdy hard carrying case - a nice touch - with a sculpted foam liner. Then, the microphone.The build quality and finish are excellent and the mic feels very solid and sturdy, something I wasn't expecting. I connected it to the computer through a Shure mixer and recorded a script several times on Audacity with the mic at various distances from my mouth. Each test was clean and crisp although there was a considerable amount of proximity bass boost with the mic closer than about four inches from your face. This is fine for my application since I was never a mic-eater and prefer to work at a distance of six inches or so where the low end boost is less pronounced.My all time favorite V/O mic is the E-V RE20 that sells for about $ and while the XM8500 is no RE20 it still does a terrific job that is comparable to the RE20 and costs about 95% less. I have to say that I am VERY pleased with the XM8500 and I am certain that it will work very well for the work I do.I give the XM8500 a BIG thumbs-up and recommend it highly.Please remember that this review is about V/O work only and does not address musical vocal or instrumental use.

          This is a very good robust super-cardioid stage microphone. I like that it has no on/off switch (those ask for trouble) and that it's smaller than comparable micriphones.

                This is a sturdy mic and seems very reliable. I have recorded some electric guitar with it and put it close to the amp speaker. The sound was pretty realistic and the the isolation was very good. With this kind of price-no need to think twice.

                  This is the 3rd Mic of Behringer ultra voice XM8500 I bought...this time I choose to buy from B&H Photo Video, because their price was the most competitive one. The reason I bought from them is, their price was equal to other 2 places,but they did not charge me handling & postal :) better way to buy things from B&H Photo Video:) but I don't know how much profit they made in this probably nothing :( because I am too in sales!

The price is great too...I really cant tell the difference between this one and a shure. I am planning ti buy more in the future to add to our supply.

                          Just what the doctor ordered for event pickups. Plan on buying two more. I have some very expensive mikes that do a great job but this one is a terrific value. Comes in a snap-lid, cusioned case.

                            I USED THIS MICROPHONE WITH MY WITH MY 24/96 USB INTERFACE AND IT SOUNDED VERY CRISP AND CLEAR. I WAS BLOWN AWAY AT HOW CLEAN THE RECORDING TURNED OUT. IT SOUNDED AS GOOD AS MY MORE EXPENSIVE MICROPHONES THAT I OWN. FOR THE PRICE YOU CANT GO WRONG. ITS A WIN WIN IF YOU ARE ON A SERIOUS BUDGET AND NEED A GOOD MICROPHONE. THE ONLY REASON I BOUGHT THIS MICROPHONE IS FOR MY MOBILE STUDIO THAT FITS IN MY BACKPACK. I CAN RECORD ANYBODY ANYWHERE WITH THIS MICROPHONE. THIS MICROPHONE DOESNT EVEN NEED PHANTOM POWER ON MY USB INTERFACE. I JUST PLUG IT IN AND RECORD.
