Noisy
Wolfwolf, 13.04.2021
Wanted to get a simple multipattern condenser mic for recordings. Got this mic and was disappointed, because it's unfortunately too noisy. I mean, I can record tracks or use it on podcasts, of course, but it is not enough for me.

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.

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.

Good mic for the price
Martin T. 705, 01.05.2020
This is my first studio mic. I have used it for recording vox and also for recording a room for live streaming. For the vox I used the figure of 8 config which gave some nice tracks. It is not overly sensitive which is good in my environment being in a spare room of a family home. For the streaming it worked well in omni directional and I was pleasantly suprised it seperated the left and right incoming sounds so it really recorded the room not just the sound it in if you get what I mean.
I would recommend for a beginner or budget versatile mic for a number of situations. Sound I put down to 4 as I was happy with the sound but I do not have much experience. Happy it comes in a hard case with a brass screw converter too.
