If you’re looking for an inexpensive and versatile microphone with a wide range of applications, look no further. The BM-800 is about the greatest value one can find for a decent condenser mic. As a condenser mic, you’ll find that the BM-800 can capture more detail and room ambience at lower volumes than any dynamic mic. With that in mind, the BM-800 would be a solid choice for recording acoustics instruments, vocal performances, and even podcasts. If you’re trying to run your own professional studio, you’ll probably want to keep saving up. But for the average musician, video blogger, or podcaster this mic will definitely get the job done.
For a low-budget microphone, the BM-800 is built surprisingly well. It’s got a Zinc alloy housing and a gold-plated Steel mesh net to provide sturdy protection for its diaphragm and internal components. It also comes with a solid shock-proof mount to keep the mic secure and unwanted rattling to a minimum. Since it’s a uni-directional condenser you’ll have to remember to keep the side marked “BM-800” facing your desired audio source. Another great feature is its removable foam cap to help shield the mic from wind interference, noisy air conditioning, and spit from those extra impassioned performances. Having purchased quite a few microphones.
Most important of all, be aware this is a Phantom Powered microphone. While some versions of this mic require batteries to function, this version needs phantom power.
