I feel inclined to review, since I went in on one blindly. Overall, this mic is better on vocals than the 990 is, at they are not as muddy, you can tell a difference in the mids and highs; Its also very sensitive. Once you EQ, you can make this Mic sound pretty darn good. The build of the mic is nice, theres not a ton of mesh on the wire grill like there is on the 990, but this mic pops rather easily, so make sure you have the pop filter, and you may need to speak off to the side of the mic. Although it feels sturdy, it is a bit light, which makes me not want to drop it. I give this product a 9/10, the only thing that couldve made it better was including a shockmount. If you need shockmount size, aim for the V67G or the V57 size as the 990 shockmount is too wide to fit it. At the price right now, it is pretty much a steal, just dont forget to buy a shockmount!
This mic does not contain any specific features such as a DB switch or anything else, just a microphone similar to others like the MXL V57 or V67M.
The build quality feels sturdy and well designed, not quite as heavy as the MXL 990, although I feel like you would not want to drop this microphone on the floor.
I decided to go in on this mic with no reviews; I was pleasently surprised. The only thing that couldve made the deal better was including a shock mount with the packaging. I ended up getting the musiciansgeat shockmount to accompany it (fits the mic a little tight, but it works).

Decent sound. Relatively inexpensive. I also have an MXL-V63M condenser mic and even though they're similar in price I prefer the V63M over the V250. Not a bad mic though! Especially if you just simply need another condenser for whatever reason. Feels a little light, like it's not as solid as the V63M. Still a good mic though.

      Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

      We just got this mic, and we are a small church attempting to record services and give a copy to shut-in's. We are a bunch of amateurs attempting to do this, so my review is based on limited knowledge. However, it seems to be a good sturdy mic, pics up sound great. We have had some issues with feedback but I believe this to be fault on our end not the mic itself. Word to the wise...don't forget the cord!

        Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

        I got this mic when it was on the Stupid Deal of the Day and I can say that this is possibly one of the best mics I have ever used... The quality is great, especially with a pop filter. Great for vocals and even recording acoustic guitar tracks.. I highly recommend this mic to anyone and everyone who needs a mic. This mic is worth more than its listing price, so the fact that I got this mic for the SDoD price is just insane. It was a no-brainer.

              Bought this as a "stupid deal of the day", but for my application I've used it for and the results I got would have gladly given full price! I was actually blown away when using to mic my acoustic instruments! Glad I didn't spend Neuman money honestly and I've always missed the sound in my home studio it gave right out of the box.

                  I was very, very surprised by the quality of sound considering I only paid 50 bones for this mic. I recorded vocals, guitars, tambourine through it and everything sounded beautiful. I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, but I am very particular and I am definitely pleased with this purchase.

                      Did not say anything about phantom switch on board, I found my board has no phantom switch after friends showed me what to look for. Called Musicians Friend and they were very helpful in getting me fixed up. Condenser mike worked very good once I added box to it. We use it for singers that come up on stage at Jam at RV park.

                        Very pleased with the pricing and quality of these condenser mics. I received the mics relatively quickly in the mail.
                        I use them mainly for live performances for open mic events in a small space and in a small church chapel. They pick up small nuances for vocals and acoustic guitars very well!
                        I would definitely recommend these (especially at those prices!)
