Behringer ECM8000 Measurement Microphone is rated 4.3571 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rises Above its CriticsI am still amazed at the price of the ECM8000 and most measurement microphones in general. The story on the street is that even though they have a very flat response, these microphones are not the best for recording because of the noise figure. Well, there aren't very many published specs on them, so I had to take matters into my own hands. I went out and made a music recording with two of them! I couldn't detect any noise except the air conditioning sytem that I recorded, and the music sounded great.I then hooked one into my Behringer DEQ2496 and did some EQing. I ran it as an RTA and it seemed very accurate. I then did the Auto EQ function, and it worked well. I then put on a test disc of pink noise and measured that, and it was the same as the internal pink noise measurement from the 2496. I refined and tweaked the equalizer settings and measured a very smooth room curve, exactly what I wanted.There may be costlier measurement microphones, but IMHO you really don't need them. This one does the job, and does it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good overall recording mic !I use this mic for recording drums, guitars and other applications... I own a few of these mics and they work good for everything I have used them for in the past... Good frequency response and big low-end reproduction of mounted toms & floor toms!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware!I am not sure why PE even sells this anymore, since they now offer their own version that comes with its own unique calibration file. Originally the Behringer ecm8000 got a reputation for being reasonably flat at a very cheap price. But for the last couple of years they have changed and the response is more like a typical recording mic with a huge presence boost. I know because I bought one and had it calibrated by a 3rd party (for about $50 extra) . So for example, there was a 5-6 db boost around 8-10 khz. But if you have a good calibration file that is not a big deal. But this mic does NOT come with a file and it is not flat. So there is 0 reason to sell the ECM8000 as a "meaurement mic" >>>> Buy the Dayton EMM-6 instead! umber=390-801&FTR=emm-6&CFID=13929132&CFTOKEN=1862 8647Each one comes with its own unique calibration file, for the same price. I'd be suprised if it is not made by Behringer, to the original specs. I just bought one to replace my 2 year old ecm8000, which developed a loud hum (for no apparent reason other than it just forgot the words :) The cal file for the EMM-6 indicates it is much flatter too : the maximum peaks are more like 2 db

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Great price point.This microphone does a great job of measuring speaker output. It works with RTAs to equalize your system and help correct phasing issues. Can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone for a low priceThis is a great microphone for the low price. Very sensitive when I hooked this microphone to my Canon Pixia HF-200 camcorder, and plus I had to get a mono to stereo adaptor in order to hook up my my to my stereo mic jack on my camcorder. But make sure the phantom power for this microphone is above 30 volts, because this microphone has too much hissing noise at 21 volt phantom power when it's hooked up to my camcorder. But when I raise the phantom power voltage to 31 volts, I didn't have anymore problem with this microphone having hissing noise with my camcorder. This microphone can hear things clearly that I can't hear. I also use this microphone to check acoustic phase and frequency response on speakers when I build, modify, or repair speakers. I've been using this microphone for almost 2 years, and it is working great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let's Not ForgetThe extraordinary frequency response is great for live recording of the King of Instruments -- the pipe organ. After 55 years of drooling over kilo-buck condensers, I now own and use four of these guys. As for features, try simplicity and flat response. Who could want more?

what cord do i need to go to deq2496 it needs to be at 12 feet long

Asked by: kenneth
It uses a standard XLR microphone cable. The bar at the right of the page should lead you to the selection of microphone cables. They are available from any local pro audio vendor. The one from ratshack is too ratty to be usable though.

I need a new microphone stand adapter for a Behringer ECM8000.

Asked by: Fondu
I've been unsuccessful in locating the clip as a separate item from this microphone. I would suggest using a spring-loaded model as referenced below.
