Summary: This is a good microphone for RTA analysis of excellent cost-effectiveness. It has little problems at the ends of the spectrum, but not enough to cause problems. The other microphones of this kind are very expensive.
Summary: I bought this mic to use with my Real Time Analyzer (RTA)/EQ. The mic works perfectly for this purpose (this IS after all what it was designed to do), but at a fraction of the cost of other RTA mics on the market. The dbx(brand) equivalent was the next cheapest alternative, at $100 (still a fraction of what you can spend on RTA mics). Unless you are a major recording studio I doubt you would need or could use the increased accuracy of the $500plus mics.
excellent equipment price is right does the job and then some

Summary: I had owned one a few years ago. I use it in conjunction with the Behringer 8024 active eq and feedback killer module. These two items work very well together. The ecm8000 mic is specially designed for this eq. The eq has a pink noise generator that is sent out through the PA to model the room. I am a professional musician playing in a local band.
Summary: If ever there were a microphone that was designed and manufactured WITHOUT any thought being given to its use in Amateur radio. the Behringer ECM8000 would have to be that microphone. The ECM8000 is a specialized microphone that is intended, in conjunction with test instruments, for measurement of ambient sound levels over the full sonic range.
