Improve Your Acoustics

The Behringer Measurement Condenser Microphone ECM8000 is intended for use with the Behringer Ultracurve or any other audio spectrum analyzer. To get great-sounding recordings, you first must know what you're listening to - and if you haven't properly analyzed and corrected your monitoring environment, you're likely deluding yourself. And the more you move from near-field to mid-field monitoring (and beyond), the more crucial acoustic spectral analysis becomes. With its true omnidirectional pattern, ruler-flat frequency response, and ultra-high resolution, the Behringer ECM8000 is purpose-built for this task.

Value far surpasses price

I purchased these to use for room mic's for a mixed ensemble classical performance being held by a friend. I was going to rent a pair of QTC40's, but that would have cost nearly as much as buying a pair of these and hey, I figured, this way I have them. My expectations were fairly low, but it was a gig I was doing as a favor so I wasn't too worried about it. Their last 'recording' was a cellphone video that was clipped beyond recognition, so anything I did would be great for them. During their run through before the show, I slowly got everything set up - these microphones for the room as my main pair, a pair of Cascade Fatheads to cover the strings and/or woodwinds depending on the piece, a pair of SDC's on the piano, and a borrowed hypercardioid to point at the vocalist. I got them all about where I thought I'd want them before I listened. I threw on the phantom and got basic levels using just my meters before I listened. And then I panned the main pair left and right and threw on my cans. My jaw dropped. I probably could have taken down the highlight mic's. I haven't mixed yet, but I know I'll hardly need them. For $60 each, $120 for a pair - I can't imagine being happier with a purchase. I've been saving for a pair of Earthworks or similar for a little while. I'm sure I'll still want that, but it's shot down the priority list. With good placement - and, of course, the good room and good performances made everything easier - these will get you VERY far. While they are extremely flat, they are noticibly noisier than some of their much more expensive counterparts. For loud applications, you'll have no complaints at all. For quieter applications, you will notice a little more noise floor than you'd probably like. If you have rx3, just record some room sound and forget about your worries. If you don't, you may have to pay a bit of attention in delicate applications. But for the price, I would (and do) recommend these to anyone who asks.
5/5

Great addition to my system.

Very accurate. We use it to tune out system when we run noise generator on the real time analyzer.

Easy, Portable, And always a great spare

Ive tested these with high end priced microphone and the difference is so little. With a price tage like this, you cant loose.

not built to last 18+yrs but...

Well it was fine while it lasted. Now I'm going to buy another one. What??Why?? you ask? because it lasted me 18 yrs and at $59 that's worth it. Not just me but many of my friends have also had the same failure, but after a long time. Oh well, the price certainly makes up for that. And BTW the Presonus version is identical but for 40$ more. Buy the Behringer and get just as great and almost perfect results compared to the $500-$1000 dollar. I mean if you're making money at testing systems and you want your client to look at what you have then buy the more expensive brands. But I've been testing systems just fine. I've used every test mic out there and really the difference was negligible. Just remember to use your ears as well! (Only 4 stars because it died. 5 stars for price vs, brands xyz.)
