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 wanted to add a condenser to my studio set up. When this went on Stupid Deal of the Day I had to get it.
    First it is smaller than I thought it would be but that is OK. I added a shock mount and plugged it into my Phonic Firewire mixer to give it a test. Had to turn the gain on the channel almost all the way off to avoid feed back this is one hot moma. Discovered I had my headphone plugged in (that was causing the feed. back). Fixed that and zeroed the board. and tried a few phrases at different distances. Even tried from the side and noticed no fall off.
    Very pleased with my purchase. At that price who wouldn't.
    My son dropped it and it now has a dent in grill but the sound was not affected.

    Overall very pleased with the outcome.

      Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

      I own an AKG C2000, Audio Technica 2035, two Shure 87A's and a pair of Rode NT1 mics. This MXL V250 cost a small fraction of what those mics cost and is at least 80% to 90% as good as any of them. I bought this as a Stupid Deal so the price was rediculously minimal. I have used this on acostic guitars and vocals and it sounds very good. Mic snobs won't believe it but I'll bet in a blind test with this mic through a good tube pre-amp they couldn't tell the difference between this and many high priced mics. Highly recommended.

        I have really enjoyed using this microphone. I am a novice and learning as I go. Thus far I have learned a lot using and experimenting and placement and the microphone itself. Still learning and the price didn't hurt either.

        I purchased a pair of these microphones along with a Tascam DR-40 Portable recorder. I couldn't be happier with the results after just a short time getting the recorder and mics set up for best performance.

          I've used this mic to record the bass strings on a stereo mic'd piano (using a CAD C9 on the treble strings) and I've also used it to record vocals and the sound is clear and full. I would buy again for sure.

          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.

          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...

          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!
