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!

Viel Mikro für wenig Geld...
telefix1, 12.12.2019
So Kinder, ich habe das nagelneue Behringer BA 85A zu Testzwecken gekauft, ausgepackt, begutachtet und aufgeschraubt. Die Verarbeitung ist top. Der im Korb integrierte Popschutz erscheint ggü. dem SM58 Beta etwas dicker und ich dachte erst, das wird sich in der Höhenwiedergabe bemerkbar machen. Aber dazu später. Die Kapsel ist weich und dadurch schockresistent gelagert. Allerdings hängt da ein Metallring zwischen Kapsel und Handteil. Der soll das Innenleben beim Aufdrehen des Korbes arretieren. Hätte man auch anders lösen können... Dann sofort Testumgebung aufgebaut mit Mixer (Presonus SL MKIII) und 2 Bose F1. Raum eingerauscht und anschließend das Behringer und ein SM58 Beta mit und ohne Korb zum Vergleich getestet. Fazit: das BA 85A ist im Höhenbereich nicht so present wie das Original. Der Abfall liegt etwa bei 8KHz. Die Mitten sind ausgewogen. Zwischen 6 und 8 kHz gibt es eine deutliche Erhöhung. Im Unteren Teil bis 100Hz ist es fast linear. Als preiswerte Variante und Alternative ist es absolut zu empfehlen. An das Original kommt es (messtechnisch) allerdings nicht heran. Der Höreindruck ist subjektiv - gut. Mir persönlich fehlt im Stimmenbereich etwas Durchsetzungsvermögen. Allerdings habe ich immer gegen das SM58 Beta verglichen. Ohne Referenzgerät wäre der Test einmalig exzellent...
