Behringer XM8500 overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 is a handheld cardioid dynamic microphone offering high-feedback immunity and voice-tailored sound for vocals, speech, and instruments in studios, houses of worship, corporate events, and live stage applications. The element features a dynamic moving coil, which requires no external power. Its cardioid polar pattern attenuates off-axis noise caused by sources such as monitors, additional instruments, and room ambience, allowing high gain before feedback.

The Ultravoice XM8500 produces a frequency response of 50 Hz to 15 kHz with a high-frequency boost for increased vocal presence. Its dynamic capsule provides a high-output level and utilizes a shock-isolation system to reduce handling noise. Plosives and wind noise are minimized via the integrated two-stage pop filter. The gold-plated XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most microphone preamps and mixer inputs, and the metal body with a steel grille provides road-ready protection and durability. The Ultravoice XM8500 ships with a mic stand adapter and an impact-resistant carrying case.

    Behringer XM8500 reviews

    Ultravoice XM8500 Handheld Cardioid Dynamic Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the price! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Mic for the Price I bought this as a second mic to use for podcasting. I wasn't expecting much, especially as this mic is less than twenty dollars, but I got a LOT more than I paid for. The sound quality on this mic is equal to or greater than many other mics I own that are far more expensive. Low noise, great frequency response.I've owned $ mics before and they've been cheap plastic toys. This is extremely well made, nice and heavy and the sound quality is nothing short of excellent.The only minor downside is this mic is prone to exaggerating plosive sounds ('P' and 'B' sounds, etc), but I fixed that with a three dollar foam windshield.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Lo-price Microphone Sturdy and surprisingly clean sounding low price mic, seems to be modeled vs. the Shure 58's. Pretty powerful when considering signal to noise ratio; handling is a little noisy but with proper technique poses no real problem. The cardioid's directional pattern is much more direct then even the 58's which can be excellent for event vocals and quick recordings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works For Me The Behringer XM 8500 is an inexpensive alternative to the Shure SM 58. This mic similar power and clarity with very low feedback characteristics, and if it is damaged you can replace it cheaper than the cost of repairs. I have used the XM 8500 for recording and live performances and I am completely satisfied with this product. Nay sayers can continue to use the high dollar mics but remember that those mics are subject to the same abuse, and I can buy 5 XM 8500's for the price of 1 SM 58. Prestige doesn't enhance sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from XM8500 - Dynamic ULTRAVOICE Mic by Behri Our church has always used Sennheiser 835 for the singers. Because of our church budget, I tried Behringer mic. I can't seem to hear any difference when I use Senn 835 and Behringer 8500 side by side, but only at the fraction of price. I would highly recommend getting this mic for quality product at low cost. Only thing I can say that aren't good is that the handling of the mic can be a little too sensitive and can be heard when in silence, but can't seem to notice it once singer started to sing. Awesome mic!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mic for HAM radio operators I use this product with my Yaesu FT-950 Ham radio. I was swayed by positive reviews of this mic, for Ham radio use, and decided I wouldn't be out much at $$. I gave it a shot. I have to agree, this mic really has it where it's needed for Ham radio. It truly is the best value in Ham radio! I actually feel fine with no EQ on my radio at all, if I leave the Yaesu at stock 3-27 bandwidth transmit settings. It does need some bass roll-off if you widen the bandwidth range. Overall, highly recommended for Ham radio!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this mic Use for live performances and plan to use for home recording. The mic has a great sound for such an inexpensive product. I have other Behringer products and all their equipment is top notch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Value in Mics I have three XM8500s and purchased another to replace the one borriwed by my professional musician neigbor. Built like a tank, and a great vocal mic.
