Good but noisy
Windgunner, 02.06.2019
These mikes sound great if you know where to point them. I've used these in live and in studio situations. And they get the job done most of the time.

Why only most of the time? Because you have to be careful with moisture in the air. Mine have gotten noisy a few times because when the capsule spends a lot of time in a damp environment, the microphone's noise floor rises to unusable levels (at least for studio applications). My suggestion is to keep them in a dehumidifier every time you're not using them so you don't get any surprises. Learn from my mistakes. (I only rate this 4 stars because the electronics in the mike could have been a bit better in order for the noise floor not be so grossly amplified).

just put the -10dB on
danislovenija, 11.03.2020
I wass using the mic on hihats or rides, and had a problem where when the drumer really hit hard the ride or on a hihat, the mic wold almost distort a bit. Once i put on the -10dB pad and the sound wass 100 times better. For the money thats a great mic for like hihats, maybe also acoustic guitar.

Nice mic for an acoustic guitar
Manwithbass, 21.10.2020
It sounds very clean when I tried recording an acoustic guitar. It has an omni capsule which eliminates some of the low end frequencies of the guitar making it sound more clean and spatial.
The build quality is good, 4 out of, but for this price I can't ask more.

I warmed to them
Gavin A., 15.05.2013
I bought two of these and found them disappointing - there recording my voice, accordion and concertina, I found there was a quality to the sound that I did not especially like - and slowly over time came to realise my problem was distortion due to placing the mic in cardioid to close to my noisy instrument without using the pad.

I've also come to realise that the B5s' omni capsules work well in spaced pairs, particularly for recording informal groups of singers and sessioning folk musicians. I might even buy another pair some time. I would say that I'm still learning in amateur recording even after all these years.

I have no complaints about the quality.
