Excerpt: The sound quality was the most important thing to me I do a lot of ENG style video, where the host need to hold mic and walk around and asking people question. This mic is doing great, with little handling noise and sound like at least a $[$]mic. It's replacing the Shure VP64A.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Purchased a couple of these to fill out some random recording sessions and was quickly impressed with the cost to quality ratio. They have since found regular use in podcast sessions when we do large group casts. We run these through a mixer and into a Zoom H5.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I have 2 of these pics in my podcast studio and they work great... I now have quality audio for my listeners and the feedback that I am getting has been super positive since I started investing in professional audio. Very happy with this product - especially when considering the price.
Summary: I was looking for a mic to use with my Flex 6300, which can now be used remotely with the release of SmartSDR 1.4 and found this mic. It had great reports here on eHam, and also on Amazon, so I thought, what the heck, for $20.00 I would give it a try. I'm glad I did!
Excerpt: First, kudos to B&H for the VERY quick service. Thank you!I was in radio and TV broadcasting for almost 40 years and now do freelance voiceovers in my retirement, so I am very familiar with microphones.I settled on the XM8500 as a new V/O mic after reading the great reviews here and on other sites.
