Cost/performance ratio is great. Sound is great. Behringer is a disruptive technology force in the music industry. You may expect to often pay double up to 10 times more for products of similar quality and possibly slightly greater longevity.
Very low self noise for an electret condenser. Excellent dynamic range. Very low distortion. Near ruler flat frequency response. Great for drum overheads, sax, etc. with -10 dB pad, acoustic guitar without.
Needs separate LF roll off and -10 dB switches, or at least a clearer definition of whether the -10 dB position includes the LF roll off, or not. I believe that it does, but still not sure unless I test it with an analyzer.
Ease of Use
Plug and play. If it doesn't work, you forgot to turn on the phantom power or have a bad mic cord.
Superb sound, construction, fit and finish.
Sounds like you spent a whole lot more than you actually did.
Manufacturer Support
Don't know. This is truly a disposable device especially at this price point.
The Wow Factor
Sounds great. Cost is near zero. Now if only Uli would shock mount some of these elements into a hand held with a two layer pop screen...
