Great value for money as always from Behringer
M-Theory Mike, 12.11.2020
Use:
I use mine for vocal recording in a semi-pro studio. Speech and singing.

Pros:
Very decent price
Sturdy, solid construction
Switchable pickup modes (omnidirectional, cardioid and figure eight)
Low cut and gain reduction switches
Stand adapter and box included, which is nice
Sound quality is rich and noise free

Cons:
You need to get really close to the mic and/ or ramp the gain up on the mixer/preamp to get a decent signal. No big deal to me, but might be problematic for some
Its non-uniform shape means it doesn't fit nicely into a standard mic harness which cylindrical mics would fit into - but it comes with a stand adapter so again, not really the end of the world.

I would definitely recommend this mic to potential buyers, and have done so many times since purchasing mine a few months ago.

It's worth its weight
Spike 350, 01.04.2019
I bought this mic primarily for home studio use and after working with it for just over a week i feel that i can be a little more thorough reviewing it. The quality of this mic has surprised me, i was expecting recordings to sound thin without any warmth or richness and this isn't the case at all. It compares favourably to mics that are ten times its price, it has a weight to it that exudes quality. It can be switched to any of 3 pick up patterns, has a low cut filter switch and a -10db attenuation switch also making it fully adjustable for most situations. If there is a negative it's that it doesn't come with a spider although one can be purchased to fit it. It comes with its own moulded plastic case which will keep it clean and safe if being transported. I think you'll be hard pressed to find anything on the market that will record audio of this quality for this price.

Reasonable budget microphone
MattA82, 09.09.2020
Definitely worse microphones out there for the money. Used this as an overhead for recording drums and it is more than up to the task.
Can see this being useful for tracking vocals and acoustic guitars too.

Delighted with the clear mic!
Estie , 31.07.2020
I did a lot of research into condenser mics for vocals and I was skeptical at first because of the cheap price of this mic comparatively to other models. I was DELIGHTED with it! It came in a hard case, which is handy for storage. It has 3 mic pattern settings so is versatile. It has at least as good sound as some of the expensive mics costing 10 times as much. Also even if you do own an expensive mic, get one of these as a spare because they are superb!
