Made me doubt other microphones
HaKaryan , 13.04.2020
first i will say, that this low cost dynamic sounds and feels way beyond its price point, which makes me wonder why his step brother (SM58?) cost 4 times as much?

in any case, It is durable and sturdy, sounds clear, rejects background noise better the expected, but handling or desk noise (mouse&keyboard) not so much , so either connect it to a floor stand with a boom arm , if you are planning to stream with it or anything.
I personally use it as a talk back mic, and for that it is amazing, and i have even recorded with it for a proper VO audition on the go.. and got the gig! :)

Its fairly low cost, well build, and good to have all rounder,
especially for you those that are just starting out.

Solid Mic for Live Setting, can't beat the value for this price
LiveSoundAK, 06.02.2020
Let's face it, there are many $20-30 mics out there these days that sound as good or better than an SM58. Most of it is preference and longevity. The frequency response of these 85A mics is just a bit bass-i-er than a standard 58, but all you need to do is hit the low cut button on your mixer, or dial down the bass knob and it is very difficult to tell the difference in a live setting. Good feedback rejection pattern for stage use. Excellent durability, and of course price.

Not even the basics are provided by behringer.
Xaro5, 07.07.2020
No Self Noise, SNR Ratio, Max SPL or Polar pattern provided. Maybe it is purposed to be used as a toy. Better buy T.bone MB85 beta. Better choice by far!

Gute Güte..!
Michael-San, 18.11.2020
Ich habe dieses Mikrofon nur deshalb gekauft, weil ich wissen wollte: Wie weit nach unten kann man bei Mikrofonen für den Life Stream gehen? Die Antwort ist: Offenbar sehr weit nach unten, wenn man das richtige Mikrofon erwischt. Dieses Ding klingt erschreckend gut! Ich habe ein RØDE Procaster zum Vergleich hier. Und ich habe beide Mikrofone mit einem Steinberg UR22 Mk II Audio Interface und einem Behringer UMC202HD Audio Interface getestet. Sicher, das RØDE Procaster klingt besser. Es hat mehr Präsenz und deutlich mehr loudness, aber in Sachen Preis-Leistung wird es vom BA 85A vernichtend geschlagen. Ja, das BA 85A ist im Vergleich dunkler im Ton, richtiggehend dumpf, aber die Ironie ist, dass man DAS mit einem kostenlosen Equalizer VST Plugin zumindest zu einem guten Teil ausgebügelt bekommt. Am Ende hat das Procatser mehr Präsenz als das BA 85A. Diesen Effekt kriege ich mit dem BA 85 A einfach nicht hin, ohne dass der Ton wirklich anstrengend wird. Das erkauft das Procaster aber mit einer höheren Empfindlichkeit gegenüber Plosiven und Wind Geräuschen. Auch das BA 85A ist gegenüber Plosiven relativ empfindlich. Nicht so sehr, wie das Procaster, aber dennoch nicht zu leugnen: Allerdings habe ich das mit einem einfachen Windshield (the t.bone Windscreen WS60 für ca. 3€) behoben bekommen. Dadurch wird der Ton noch einmal etwas dumpfer, als er schon ist. Das kriegt man aber auch im EQ größtenteils behoben. Weitere Kritik: Das BA 85 A ist unleugbar am rauschen. Das ist der eine Punkt, in dem es gegen das Procaster absolut keine Chance hat. Das Rauschen ist klar im Hörbaren bereich. Hier hilft zwar das Noise gate, was mit ohnehin hörbaren Hintergrundgeräuschen im oberen Mitteltonbereich auf räumt, aber Noise Supression ist hier nicht nutzbar, weil sie das BA 85 A noch dumpfer macht. Außerdem ist es ziemlich empfindlich gegenüber Handling Geräuschen. Zum ausbessern habe ich einen Absorber dazu gekauft (Shure A55M) aber der bringt nur teilweise etwas und war teurer als das Mikrofon selbst. An einem Stativ und mit dem Absorber ist auch Das kein Problem. Aber wenn man nicht gerade einen Mikrofonarm für den Tisch verwendet, ist der Nutzen von einem Absorber fraglich. Das Alles klingt am Ende doch sehr kritisch, aber dafür kostet dieses Mikrofon gerade Mal ein sechstel von dem Shure Beta 58 A, dem es (offensichtlich) nachempfunden ist.
