"Exactly what I was looking for"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I use an ECM8000 every weekend as an RTA mic to monitor the room from the FOH position. In addition to getting the frequency real time analysis I also get the SPL reading. This helps me put a set of eyes in conjunction with my ears of what's going on in the room and make the necessary adjustments to the "sound" of the room. I also use this mic as an ambient mic on stage for IEM's. Everyone can add as much "room" to their mix as they want. The flat response and omni direction pattern of this mic works perfect in this application. Based on how well this has performed for me in these applications and the price point - I typically recommend this mic for these apps. Oh yeah, I also use it in conjunction with various speaker management boxes.

I will always keep 4 of these in my mic kit. I already owned three and this weill give me 4 to do any stereo project i want.
Sound
Even if this mic twice the money it is a bargain. Everyone needs some onmi mics in their mic kit, and these are tremendous. I have used a pair of these micing grand pianos and they are super. Depending upon how bright your piano is, a little less at 12-15K might be needed, but the naturalness of pianos comes shining through. I just finished a famale vocalist with piano accompiment and people and the customer were shocked at the results. If you know what you are doing Behringer makes achieving great sound wihtin the reach of anyone with a few bucks. Highly recommended. At this price it is a no brainer.

"Pefect for room correction"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Good mic. I purchased this microphone for use with my desktop, MathAudio Auto EQ software and the Audiophile 2496 sound card for room correction. I am quite satisfied with the results. If you need a measurement mic on a budget, for the price, it's worth it.

"Great for the money. Pretty close to Earthworks calibration mics that cost 6x as much."
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Great for the money. Pretty close to Earthworks calibration mics that cost 6x as much. Very useful if you want to tape down some measurement mics in the audience for a live show and don't want to cry if an audience member opts for a five finger discount on one. It can't handle the max SPL of earthworks or other high end options, but for most people its range is more than enough.
Sound
Pretty accurate despite the Behringer name. Close to an Earthworks at 1/6th the cost.
Ease of Use
Calibration mic. No more. No less.
Quality
Pretty good and rugged. Just put a piece of tape over the Behringer logo and you're good to go.
Value
For those looking for a cheap calibration mic without spending $2k, this is unbeatable.
Manufacturer Support
Good. No issues.
The Wow Factor
If you need a calibration mic, it's awesome. If you want to record with this microphone, you're a moron.
