Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 Handheld Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
The Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 is a handheld cardioid dynamic microphone offering high-feedback immunity and voice-tailored sound for vocals, speech, and instruments in studios, houses of worship, corporate events, and live stage applications. The element features a dynamic moving coil, which requires no external power. Its cardioid polar pattern attenuates off-axis noise caused by sources such as monitors, additional instruments, and room ambience, allowing high gain before feedback.
The Ultravoice XM8500 produces a frequency response of 50 Hz to 15 kHz with a high-frequency boost for increased vocal presence. Its dynamic capsule provides a high-output level and utilizes a shock-isolation system to reduce handling noise. Plosives and wind noise are minimized via the integrated two-stage pop filter. The gold-plated XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most microphone preamps and mixer inputs, and the metal body with a steel grille provides road-ready protection and durability. The Ultravoice XM8500 ships with a mic stand adapter and an impact-resistant carrying case.
Behringer HPM-1000 - All-Purpose Closed-Back Headphones
The Behringer HPM1000 headphones are a high output, medium weight, multi-purpose monitoring solution for critical recording or enjoyment listening. The padded headband is adjustable, and the elliptical shape of the padded earcups ensures a comfortable, secure fit, with good isolation. The cable sports an 1/8" (3.5mm) TRS stereo mini plug, great for smartphones, MP3 players, and tablets; and a 1/4" TRS stereo adapter is included for connections to home studio and DJ gear.
The HPM1000 headphones are surprisingly inexpensive and a good value.
