Good on Guitar Amps...

By LeeMassey

from Central Coast, CA

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

I have been using a couple of these 8000s for about 5 years. They sound great for either recording a guitar amp or mik'ing it live. However, this is NOT a great mic for live vocals. for $50 more, you can get the stage standard Shure SM58, or the PG58 if you are on a really tight budget. But like I said, for guitar amps, these are great.. ALMOST as good as an SM57 on my recordings, so I still get a lot of use out of these, and give them 4 stars, for this particular application. Different mics are better for different uses.

By SSdude!

from kentucky

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

i bought 1 of these 5 years ago when i first started doing vocals in a band it it is the sickest mic i have ever used. being in a hardcore band it is hard to fine a reliable mic that can handle the load of dirty vocals and clean singing vocals. i recommend this guy to anybody looking for a good affordable mic

Good Mics

By jpowers

from North Carolina

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

I bought 6 of these about 6 years ago and today, all of them still work and still work well. These are outstanding mics for the money and very good mics overall.

Not bad for the price...

By Stonewall Jackson

from Northern Wyoming

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

I bought 2 of these about 7 years ago. I'll admit, until recently day, I was disappointed in them. I tried to use them on my old Tascam 4 track cassette Portastudio with no luck. A scream really did come out as a whisper. 7 years and 4 moves later, I obtained Tascam's new DP-008 Digital Portastudio. Wow, what a difference! Even running on 4 AA batteries, the mike sounds 100% better than it did on my 4 track. You still have to sing within a few inches of it, or closer, but it works great now. I believe this mic could be used as a hammer if need be! If you are on a budget and need a couple of decent mics to play around with, I recommend this product. I still don't know why they didn't work on the 4 track, but they do now, so I'm happy. Not my first choice, but I'll keep 'em.

Get what ya pay for

By The Unfaithful

from Marysville, WA

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

It is an affordable microphone, so it obviously doesn't compare with more expensive models made by Audix and Shure. That being said, however, it is decent for the price. Not reccomended for lead vocals if you are a more serious performer, but it is a good backup or spare, and for any amature musician it is ideal.

Nice Budget Mic

By Double OI Punk

from plymouth, IN

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

Ok when I bought this mic I really expected to regret it. I had little cash and needed a couple of mics so I chanced it. I am glad I took the chance. The sound quality of this mic is great for the price range. Now for the negative, there is a little bit of handling noise and the internal pop filter is not so great. But hey for the money what do you expect. The vocal reproduction is fairly accurate and I have dropped them a couple of times and they lived so what else could I ask for.

Hit or miss

By Rickenblaster

from Las Cruces, NM

Comments about AKG D 8000 S Dynamic Hypercardioid Microphone:

Great sounding mic with nice quiet switching, but after a couple of years, one quit working entirely, and the other lost output to such a degree that with the board input cranked a scream still came out as a whisper. Know some other guys who have them that work great, but do not know how long they have had them. With two failing on me right together, I have no faith in the quality of this particular model.
