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.

Reasonable budget microphone

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.

Very good within the price point but not optimal
Mario Retamal 22.08.2022
I'm always cutting 1 khz and sibilance frequencies (3-7khz) with my voice.
These last days I've been using it in figure 8 pattern to increase the body of my voice, as you know different polar patterns exhibit different frequency responses.
The self noise is the big nope for me. If you want studio quality you gonna spend a lot of time with noise reduction plugins.
I'm going to upgrade to the Rode NT1, good bye self noise and harsh frequencies.

Noisy

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.
