Behringer XM8500
Exact copy of the look in sm58
component level have to disassemble one, nothing good to say it's Submitted Mount foam, clean welds, and many cell ATACHE ....
it's own


Well I can hear the sound technicians collgues spit on me lol!
but I did not have the budget for the shure that when you want, I took a fleet of three XM8500 and coupled pramp good, and good food, especially good rglages c is cool
parcqu'il have to say something, shure it's better and more forgiving of errors rglages, and placement. with the XM8500 should take the time to place it, make rglages own .... too many people take the mic like a Shure larache a password at Behr NO!
I strongly deprecated parcontre studio, his breath is too large, and the signal and thus treat hard in the studio, but live it's really recommend (good one is when sm58 mm over the foot lol)! in But for beginners as I sound far more than the council that the 58 (because the microphone does not forgive any mistakes)
never use to scratch especially in disto !!!!!
price level change anything
I would do really choice

Behringer XM8500
Basic dynamic mic ... priori intended to be sung
prices out of competition: 30 euros approx.


I tried this mic for recording vocals (in jest): ca is not much! (If anything!)
I tried it for acoustic guitar: the same, no miracle but the sound is clean, I think is pretty k'il medium - medium even bass, ca mank DEFINITIONS ds of the treble ...
I actually bought this mic to the snare, the SM 57 was too expensive to use bcp only my snare drum so I bought this one and I'm delighted!
I even want to say to the snare: take that!
it could serve as a singer but not for recording.
that price I do it again this choice without hsiter the behr I say thank you!
my note refers this type of micro-and is justified by its price!

A killing this micro !!! compar even a Beta-58 shure it a hit.
Okay it was not shure brilliance (or lack of heat shure) ...
This is less prcis but not feedback has good cash (in bass drum kick, scratch amp ...)
There's a brief me the inside !!!


Beringher is a super brand, of course the super pros will tell you otherwise, but everyone can not afford to between 150 and 1000 euros in microphones ...

Especially for that price the 30 euro !!!!!!!!!!! one can have a sacred micro park, bright Beringher for home studio and as needed.

Keep it up;) )))

Behringer XM8500
Micro dinamyque for the song but can be useful in making its in my opinion


I have a few days and really is a joy. Avabt I sang on a shure sm 58, impossible to have a good sound rgage while c nikel. In addition there is no feedback and that's great!
quality at unbeatable prices c'esty especially compared to shure.
I think the use I make of this choice I do it again as many times as ncessaire. The only small dfault of the micro and the lack of on-off switch

As indicated by others, is a dynamic low-end trs


I used one week and then I remplacquot; a static transistor (M-Audio Nova, is the day and night)
I keep it in dpanage and reports on collection outdoor.
I do nothing (except the price)
Basically a must be a micro drinking preferences of the field in concert, but for voice recording with a minimum of quality is a nightmare, it blows like asthmatics nonagnaire The definition is a disaster, etc. ..

Behringer XM8500
Cardioid, 30 euros. Multi-purpose ...
I used to do vocals with my band.


I use it for 2 months. No complaints. It is powerful! It does not feedback easily and that is more significant.
Compared with an SM58, I'll be realistic, it does not sound the same. It is less brilliant but has more fishing (comparsaison made in the studio with professional monitoring system). Compared to the Shure, it has a little bump in the low midrange that some may not love too much, but it depends on the type of voice which is taken up.
Otherwise, to 30 euros, it is really the case. Especially compared to the models of other brands that price. If this is compared to a mirco SM58 when he is 4 times less, is it really a good mic for its price.

All t dja said ....

Good mic, good rponse in frquence Jusu '14-15 KHz, the low frequency accorche is very much a distance of 8-10 cm and as all the microphones optimum distance of 1-2 cm.


Currently I use 2 XM8500, the first was offered me there almost a year and the second I am buying it are two different weeks.

While purchasing among other things I try a shure SM58, and compared it is found almost gnral, whether its look, at the level pop / feedback / robustness, the only regret in the XM8500 comparison of the SM58, a punch thrown in less high frequencies> 10 kHz.

His report qualitprix not say I use essentielelment for the movie and karaoke currently no regrets. Note that in such public entertainment, the microphones are not immune from chutte ... So be it's better than a SM58 XM8500 that makes a fall, not c is in the robustness cause is the price ....

If like me you do the animation karaoke spread the XM8500, the ones you see for the first time that 'moo' or 'screaming' into the microphone, or who n'on really no talent for song is not dvaloriser people it's just out of respect of hardware

Behringer XM8500
Cardioid dynamic microphone, multi-use copy of the SM-58 (at least in look)
Nothing to say good momentum, good heat, good quality sound, solid trs, good resistant to feedback.

I bought this microphone to test what could give a copy of SM-58 30 Euros (in its box mattress if you like!) Trs good surprise for comparing the micro to SM58 (cts from each other, even rglages, under "live") I can assure you that nothing has no point to 4 times more expensive to obtain the Shure.

For the record, it's a pet unless prcis ... but for 30 euros !!!!!!!


I use it for 2 years in home studio with microphones cents more expensive. It does not meet good Plit Shure, AKG and other Sehnneisser. Report qualitprix for this type of micro unbeatable!

I RPET for live conditions with a chain of quality middle (small entry-level console, sound amplifier or entry-level keyboard), hard to tell the diffrence with a SM58. Put as much of it is snobbery and have fun.

Honntement, if you need more dynamic mics (especially if it is to connect the table top prizes mix) then buy 3 or 4 of these mics instead of a SM-58. You do not regrettrez.

When you have too much tune or to start a group. Better this than the first microphone shure.
With the money you save, buy something other than a Yellow Cable.

(A Shure SM58 is better? Probably yes, in a preamp 2000 euros, not in a mixer 200 euros)

Behringer XM8500 Microphone Song.
Cardioid Dynamic.


A year or so prs.
The sound is good, clear, transparent. The least ... background noise.
I tried a Shure SM58 and between the two there is no picture the SM58 is largely better than the Behringer XM8500, the level it is hot, and picks up less background noise and less feedback then.
But the report qualitprix for beginners is the perfect microphone 25.
So 8 / 10 for the report qualitprix.

Behringer XM8500
Best micro t given to me to try, a massacre, a bloody heat, sound reproduction out of the ordinary, but good. Pquerettes to the Shure SM58, it can not stop that and it will be the one. Highly recommended and without breaking the bank. I'm very happy! 48 micro volts EXTRAORDINARY song. Loran4444 not expensive, I do not bump Behr and I can assure you that in my installation, it has great warmth and visited the grave is all that is correct. Evidence sometimes DLIR, I mtal of death with a big hollow voice and it comes out well trs. Happening to me in Mayenne I make you see the possibilities for this microphone, it will be chtit beef (hh!).


For a week I have name and di diou, what microphone! In him, I love everything and I am madly in love. I used the pass a string of microphones including the famous Shure SM58 and it's hands down the Exceeds level quality price (youpee!). I'll get a variety Entire whatever seems to me unstoppable, its weight and its grip immediately reassure its good performance in any situation, whether live or in studio.
