Behringer XM8500 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Behringer XM8500 reviews

    XM8500 - Dynamic ULTRAVOICE Mic is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 61.
    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 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 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 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!
