I have been using the Behringer ECM8000 for a long time. It only cost 60 bucks but it sounds way better. I am very surprised that it cost so little because if you compare it to microphones that cost 2 and 3 times more than it cost you can barely hear any differences. The ECM8000 has no low cut filter on it though, which could be a difference with some of the higher prices similar microphones. The frequency response is 15 Hz to 20 kHz and the polar pattern is Omni.


The ECM8000 comes with a gold plated 3 p in XLR connector and it will work with phantom power as long as the voltage is +15 to +48 volts. The response with the ECM8000 is very flat, it is actually more flat than some 200 dollar similar condensers that I have used and heard over the years.
The ECM8000 is very portable, usually when it comes to Behringer and the microphones they put out I usually don’t jump up to get them because I don’t feel that their microphones are as good as they use to be. It seems they have cut back on the quality of producing Behringer microphones over the years. I have used close to 3 different microphones that have went out on me over the last 4 years. Most of them were cheaper microphones though but they still were not reliable. The ECM8000 has held up great and it has been very reliable. I have had no issues with it at all, though I do not use it as much as I use to. I refuse to get rid of it because it is a great back up microphone just in case something unexpected was to happen. I suggest getting a couple of these for back up microphones. Because at this price, you can afford to get a few of them just in case.
