The XM8500 is a dynamic mic for vocals and the sound ... Finally, it should not be too much to ask, considering the price. But it fills a very good job for amateurs of micro, not asking too much nor too little of their microphones.


How long you use it?
Bought last September, it'll take a year. And I'm really not disappointed! I use a Sennheiser E840 in addition, plus some other Sennheiser much older!

What is so special that you love the most, least?
The most:
-The price / quality ratio. For 18 euros, it was a micro versatile: he took singing, flute, guitar, and I have not tried many other instruments ...
-The grip is good, the microphone is heavy and holds well in hand.
-The bass is perhaps a little too present ... But all is correct to the console.
-It is sensitive to feedback ... Be careful. (With my Sennheiser, you have to tickle it to hang).

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
What I had on hand. A Sennheiser Profisound, K3N, E840. But nothing in this price range ... So I can not compare it with other "low end", but he's doing really well against his housemates: it does not blow (yet) but has an easy hook to feedback.

How would you rate the quality / price?
As I said above, the price / quality ratio is very good for the entry level.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Of course it does on a tight budget. Otherwise, I will cut to the most reputable brands like Sennheiser (again and again!) Or Shure for the small stage ...
