Excerpt: My first large-diaphragm condener microphone. After comparing specs with others this one won out because of the good reviews, 3 polar pattern switch and price. That Behringer is also known for other audio equipment doesn't hurt..
Excerpt: Indigo said "I wonder how many are professional audio engineers?"... Shame on me for trying to save some cash and listening to the words of amateurs." Besides lacking the common sense to send the mic back to try another one (B&H has one of the best service sections around) he decides to insult folks...
Pros: Clear Sound, Multi-patterns That Work, Solid feel, Versatile
Cons: Shock Mount Needs To Be C, Switchs Feel Cheap

You can get a defective product from anyone, and the guy who mentions a -40db cracking sound should get another mic of the same brand and model before posting a...
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Excerpt: When I received this microphone, it sounded great through the monitors and all was fine yesterday. But today I started some recording tests through my PreSonus/Digi 002 but there was a -40db crackling and static sound.
Pros: Cheap, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Cons: Bad Crackling at -40db, Poor Sound Quality, Unreliable
Excerpt: I use this mic for recording individual instruments in a band and also as an audience/ambient mic in theatrical and live sound recording situations. For the price, you can't beat it. Just beware that with the decent price comes average construction and ruggedness.
Excerpt: I'd give the microphone at least 4 stars because it sounds GREAT, but how can I trust it to last as long as it should when there is corrosion on the case and shock mount (which was inside the case with the mic)?I did not notice it right away.
