The XM8500 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone is a bargain. Priced at under $30, this is a model that everyone can afford. No matter what your budget is, Behringer has priced this one to beat the competition.
Behringer ULTRAVOICE XM8500 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone Features
Because the Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 is a cardioid model, the microphone picks up sounds from directly in front and to the sides. Extraneous noise from behind the vocalist or instrument are not captured. This helps provide a clear sound without any feedback or distortion.
Other handy features include:
Frequency response of 50 Hz to 15 kHz
Hard-shell carrying case
Includes microphone clip and stand adapter
Shock mount system
Steel mesh windscreen
Two-stage pop filter
Having a two-stage pop filter eliminates the sounds you hear from normal breathing while using the microphone. This is a nice feature of the XM8500 because it is easy to capture breathy noises, especially if you move around on stage.
The weight of the microphone is well balanced. It’s heavy enough to know you have it in your hand, but not so heavy that it tires you out.
