    MXL BCD-1 reviews

    BCD-1 Live Broadcast Dynamic Microphone is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Mic I got the BCD-1 as a third broadcast quality mic for our CincyBrewcast craft beer podcast (our others are an EV-320 and a Behringer C-1). My daughter has used the mic on two shows and it has worked well. I'm a little concerned that it sounds somewhat thin on her voice; perhaps a little EQ would be in order. It also is made for use with a broadcast arm, so is a little awkward with some desk mic stands. Also, I bought a MXL mic foam which said it was compatible with the BCD-1, but is too big (I use it on the Behringer now) and, I didn't need it--the mic comes with a foam, which is not described in the in the box section on the BH website. It's a good looking mic, gives our podcast a real broadcast feel, especially during our live events. Also bought in combo with the 2-section Auray Broadcast arm, which is like stealing the arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for Amateur Radio I found that the MXL BCD-1 Dynamic Microphone works great on amateur radio, because most of the radio's now have a build in EQ to fine tune to your voice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Performer at a Resonable Price Performs well for what I purchased it for (podcast and recording voice over track for videos). The only minor complaint is the wind screen fit is a bit loose and it occassionally falls off, if the mic is pointing down. A tie wrap does the trick to keep it in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from top quality for studio podcasting This is a great mic. I use it for recording online courses and podcasts. It has a great presence and blocks background noises quite well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great podcast/broadcast mic (but needs shock mount) My wife and I needed to move to dynamic mics as the condensers we'd been using (Audio-Technica AT2020 and AT2035), which were otherwise great, were too sensitive for the noisy building into which we'd moved our office. The BCD-1 is a budget alternative to more expensive broadcast mics, such as the Heil PR40, Rode Procaster, Electro-Voice RE20 or Shure SM-7, and so far we are very pleased. Off axis sound rejection is very good, to the point that the mics don't pick up echoes from the untreated walls of our noisy home office or voices out in the warehouse at work. The sound is warm, beefy without being muddy, and with a presence bump between 3000 and 5000 Hz. We use them to record voiceovers, audio books, and the narration for a documentary film (the editor and director preferred the BCD-1 to the ATs). The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is the poor resistance of the internal shock mount�to vibration. You can easily fix that problem with a $20 shock mount. Still, if you need a good end address broadcast dynamic mic, this is a great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Review Is An Economic And the quality is not to good. I will be looking for a better broadcast microphone.
