Very very handy and versatile mic
ruairinik, 17.06.2020
This is a really mic, with a decently clear and crisp sound for its price. Definitely something to get if you're on a budget and/or want to just noddle around with recording!

For me, I use this as something easy to hook up and sing into to record demos and ideas into pro tools at home, although with a lot of playing I've found it has uses past what you'd expect.

With good mic placement as limited movement, this can work as a very very cheap alternative to a boom mic for indoor video recording. If you're an actor looking to for something to make your self tapes a little nicer sounding - this (especially with the bundle it comes in which is around 30e I think) is a very cheap and very very useful purchase.

Only thing I don't massively love about this is the built-in pop filter has little to no function it seems. i did a comparison with the cap on and off and the difference in levels of pop/distortion caused by breath was not massively noticeable. Obviously on any dynamic mic this isn't going to be perfect but this one definitely isnt brilliant.

RcRig, 08.10.2019
I remember 10 years ago when I bought my first behringer gear, it was some guitar effect pedals, the feeling was not very good, the gear was generally of poor quality in every way. And this feeling for the brand was created...

Surprisingly in recent years I got some behringer equipment that made me smile. And this mic is one of them.

First of all, for so little money we get a mic with holder and case, which doesn't always happen in much more expensive microphones.
Second, the microphone looks great, is well built, with a beautiful black finish. It's not light or heavy, it's just the right size for a hand microphone, and most importantly, it sounds great.

The XM8500 is one of the cheapest alternatives to the Shure SM58, although they look identical they are built internally with slightly different methods. The XM8500 has no transformer unlike the SM58, Impedance is different, it has more gain, which is good, and sounds relatively close with a warmer tone. I've also tried the mic on an electric guitar cab and on a drum toms and snare, both worked perfectly well.

I think this is the best low cost mic on the market.

Good Quality
Ezzy2k10, 16.01.2021
Used this on my livestream for a while, and before my friends bought me an upgrade it served me well. I now keep it as a backup. The sound on it is amazing for such a cheap product, and I would definitely recommend this product to someone on a budget.

A lot of low end, cool grille
wouterv, 09.03.2020
Basic dynamic mic, it doesn't need enormous amounts of gain (the sensitivity is actually -50dB re 1V / Pa and listed as -70dB which is relative to dyn/sq.cm). The sound is a lot darker than the T.bone MB60 (which is a bit cheaper). The black grille looks better than the silver basket of the MB60 though.
