A true, pressure-gradient condenser microphone that's a match for any singer.

The V250 is a small-diaphragm FET condenser microphone, and, as such, is good for a wide variety of applications, from vocals to room applications, to acoustic instruments. The capsule is equipped with a 17mm diaphragm of 6-micron Mylar on a 20mm OD backplate and is held together with a brass tension ring.

The MXL V250 gives vocals the right mix of power and polish. This true pressure-gradient condenser microphone delivers big, bold vocals with a presence that breaks through the rest of the tracks. And it has a detailed, articulate sound that makes subtle nuances shine. It’s where force meets finesse. It’s the perfect match for any singer, and it can’t miss with acoustic guitars and pianos.

Features
  • Excellent microphone for all types of vocalists
  • Detailed sound that highlights subtle nuances
  • 10kHz presence peak that boosts vocals in a mix

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:

I've been using two of these mics every day for two weeks on recording project. I'm trying to find something bad to say about it, but honestly, it's a fantastic mic. I'm pairing these with a ART PRO VLA compressor and I'm extremely pleased with how these sound.

Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

I have a few MXL mic's..this in a side by side was the best...when I ran it though a tube preamp it was beautiful.....heads up..the Musician's Gear Shock Mount fits this nicely...if I did not already own 4 MXL's I would buy another....getting it as the Stupid Deal of The Day was brillant...

Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

Neuman, Blue, Heil, AKG, Senheiser, and Shure are industry standards for microphone choices and are a must for any studio. MXL microphones should be added to the list. The V250 I just received is bright, clear and sensitive. Yes, it is cheap but only in price. The construction and design are spot on and with the addition of Mogami wiring this thing will surprise to socks right off you. Stop being a mic snob and give MXL a shot!

      Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

      I use a pair for recording drum overheads and they work great. A slight peak at 5khz makes the cymbals stand out in the final mix without being harsh. I have some high end mics that sound flat compared to these MXL's. Full sounding for most instruments that I've tried. Probably good on some vocals but a little thin and doesn't compliment my voice. A low cut and attenuator would make this more versatile, but overall a solid mic at a great price when on sale.

          This mic sounds great. You will not be dissappointed especially at this price point. Vocals and accoustic guitar are what i've used it for so far. Has a nice clear neutural sound.

              Used them as room mics. They were plenty good for that. Worked well in conjunction with a 57 on a guitar amp. Not a very rich sounding mic but for the money it will do the job pretty well.

                With the clarity comes hyper-sensitivity, but once a balance is set on the mixer, it is the best sound ever.
