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:

    Needed one more mike for the studio and didn't want to spend
    a fortune. This mike appeared to be a decent piece of equipment for the price. I was quite surprised when it arrived...looks like a much higher piece of gear. Compared it to my AT 4033....Sounds almost identical at a fraction of the price! It's not quite as sensitive but sound wise only someone with brilliant ears could probably tell the differences. Glad I bought it!

    Comments about MXL V250 Condenser Microphone:

    This is a great mic for recording vocals & acoustic instruments. Yes, it is very inexpensive but don't let that fool you into believing it wouldn't perform well. It does. For recording I use one of those little ART tube preamps and the two pair up very nicely with the tube warming up the sound a touch. That pairing is especially nice when I am recording analogue. It captures the little details in voice recording and when recording acoustic instruments. It works particularly well capturing my octave mandolin, bulbul taurang and oud. It also records tablas & bodhran nicely. The only con is that they are pretty fragile. Mine fell about a foot onto a carpeted floor and the middle part broke off. I was able to superglue it into place & it works fine. I has happened a couple of times & it's glued back every time & still works flawlessly. Most highly recommended, just be careful.

        I purchased because of the pre-amp in the mic...
        This thing just blew me away..!.. I've been searching for an affordable condenser to record vocals in the home studio...This is it.
        Great presence clarity and reproduction. I'm writing this review while ordering another one to go with my first.. As Peyton Manning would say

              I had already bought one V250 and was very happy with its sound. I bought a second one so I could have two of the same mics whenever I record vocals with my friend. The V250 is sensitive, and picks up every nuance. Very good recording mic for the money.

                  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.
