This is not my first choice of mikes, but I often use it at close range where is is absolutely flat and exhibits no proximity effect. I own three, which I purchased on sale here. I also use one with Behringer's Ultra-curve to tune a room. Drummers, especially, should consider this mike for close-up work since the frequency response approaches a very ample 32kHz!!! Very good at getting the pluck of a harpsichord string. I used it to record the 32' pedal tones of a monster pipe organ, and the 16Hz was audible as well as visible on the software display. This works for close in, low-gain use. Behringer seems to be creating some useful gizmos for those of us on a budget....

I read all the reviews, and they are mostly accurate. For the money, this microphone is very good. You can spend a lot more for mics. on the lower end of the scale, but gain little to nothing for the extra dollars. My rating in "stars" might seem low, but it is just an average microphone. You don't get that edge above average until you step into the big dollar mics. Then hearing is understanding. A budget is a budget though, and this microphone performs admirably even for the small ding it puts in your wallet.

    Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

    Got this as a measurement mic for my home studio. Works like a charm. I'll try recording some acoustic instruments and see how it performs. If not, it's a great mic to monitor your mix on a RTSA.

        I used this mic for room correction with MathAudio Auto EQ plug-in. The sound became very nice and neutral.
        If you need a measurement mic to correct your room, it's awesome.

        Just bought an ECM8000 and compared it with an Earthworks. Even did some measurements and it's surprisingly accuarte. Clear recommendation.

        Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

        They're noisy enough to be useless for anything other than high SPL frequency response measurements. That is if the specs they published online weren't different than what's in the documentation. The online docs show a ruler flat response from 1KHz down to 20Hz. In actuality, they're flat only down to about 200Hz and the response drops like a rock below that. They also show only a +2dB rise above 2KHz but in actuality, it's closer to +6dB.This makes the mics worthless even for measurement purposes. Behringer lied like a dog on this one. I didn't expect anything great, but these are a total waste of money.

        Great measurement mic, Good lectern mic.

        Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

        This was originally purchased as a measurement microphone which it does an amazing job of (it ought to this is not a hard task) but I was pleasantly surprised when the AKG C747 that we usually use at our lectern broke and I went ahead and stuck this little guy on the lectern to limp by. If it was not for the silver finish, I would leave it there. Voices sound much more natural through this microphone than they do through the 747. This makes sense given the razor flat response curve, i.e. there is no coloration. It is prabably too noisy for most studio apps but I have not tried it with a descent preamp.

        SUPER VALUE

        By GP

        from Los Angeles

        Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

        This mic actually compares very favorably (and in some cases sounds even better) on acoustic guitars than other much more expensive cardiods I have - a giant surprise considering I had bought it to make room measurements! After hearing it I actually re-tracked some nylon string parts and compared them to the previously recorded ones done with a much more expensive European mic and I ended up keeping the ones done with this mic. I used it with both a Millennia STT-1 and a TL-Audio VP-1 pres and it just sounded surprisingly good. GO figure...!

        Great for the price, noisy on an absolute scale

        By Twangification

        from Kansas City

        Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

        It is a cheap mic, and it's meant for tuning rooms, etc using test tones - and for that it does well. It has a very flat response. However, as with all things audio, electronic, and bottom-rung cheap, it is noisy. Not intolerably noisy, just lots of self-noise that raises the floor quite a bit with dynamic program material. I can't see myself using this for music recording - and I think I'm done in general wasting time with mics in this price range; but it is a perfect tool for understanding the frequency response of rooms, amps, and devices. Don't hesitate to get one if that's what you want.

        from Huntsville, AL

        Comments about Behringer ECM8000 Microphone:

        This is a measurement microphone. Not really meant for recording. With that said, I have 2 of them that I use for recording acoustic guitar. If you have a good sounding guitar, and a decent room to record in, then you'll love the sound you get. If you have a crappy guitar and/or crappy recording situation, then you won't. It's frequency response is almost ruler flat (because it's a measurement mic). There is no coloration to the sound whatsoever. And if you want to tune your room for acoustic reasons, this should do the job. I received 2 as gifts and couldn't be more happy. I'll have to think before putting down Behringer again. :)

        I've been playing since 1970 and now the kid took over and I've been on a Behringer up grade ever since, and this reference mic does exceed all expectations, Good overhead, vocal and acoustic mic, I even us it to record the kids band in live situations after setting up the Pa's sound. GOOD JOB BEHRINGER!!
