    I recently bought a Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 microphone in a well known online shop. In the spec sheet I read the microphone had 150Ohm impedance, but when I opened the microphone I bought, in the capsule says it has 250 Ohm impedance. Is it usual that the products don't meet the specs? I'm a bit confused...Has anyone recently bought this microphone? Can you check the writing in your capsule?

      Paul Vannatto In the body of the mic is probably a small transformer that converts the capsule's unbalanced signal to a balanced output. This transformer will also change the output impedance.

        Mikel Markiegi Oh, that is probably it. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer a newbie like me!

    Hi there, where can you download the calibration file for the ecm8000 that I bought to use with REW? I just registered the product but I can't find where to download the calibration file, thanks.

    I purchased Behringer wireless mics ULM200. The USB has cracked open and no longer works. It's never been dropped or abused. Can I get a new one?

    Hi everyone, Looking for a basic lapel mic for online piano teaching. I have a great little Rode Smart Lav+ (designed for plugging into a phone), but unfortunately -- according to Rode -- it needs two adaptors to use in a mixer like this (one to convert the TRRS-to-TRS plug, another to convert TRS phono-to-XLR which also converts the phantom power from 48V to the 3~5V thee mic needs to operate). Who knew this was so complex!?! I don't need anything too high-end, it's just for VOICE (the electronic keyboard plugs straight into the 2nd mic input -- easy!), so i thought maybe an electret mic like this might do the trick. It's very cheap, BUT i think it will have the same problem because, from what i read of electret mics, they all seem to need a small level of power, which the phono jack won't provide through this mixer. Any ideas? Should i be looking for a dynamic lapel mic? Or maybe i just get the adaptor and be done with it. To me it just feels so round-about (so many adaptors!!!!) Any thoughts welcome, thanks :) Richard

      Richard Leigh Even Lav mics with XLR plugs like this Shure mic ( seem to say they need only 5- 10V, so will the on-board 48V phantom power actually work with this? More than what i wanted to pay for another basic mic, but maybe i need to go for something like that... ?

      Rex Beckett You are correct. All electret mics need a power supply. I haven't seen a dynamic lavalier mic for years - electrets are much better and smaller. I think your best bet is to get the Rode adapters. Rode products are very good and the adapters probably cost less than another mic with battery or phantom power options.

        Richard Leigh Thanks Rex. I guess it's only *one more* adpator, lol!
        Just seems weird that to plug in one simple Lav mic i need:
        LAV_Mic --> TRRS-TRS adaptor --> phono-XLR-and-power adaptor --> MIXER_input
        ...not to mention i'll probably have to add the extra 6m extension to give a bit of range with the lead! Surely means buzz & hiss entering at each point!

        Rex Beckett I think it is the same number of adapters that you tried already. You just swap the 3.5mm/6.35mm adapter for the Rode 3.5mm/XLR (VXLR+) one. If you want to extend the cable, use an XLR cable between the Rode adapter and the mixer. The balanced cable is less likely to pick-up noise.

        You can get lapel mics that are fitted with XLR connectors and use phantom power. They are usually pro-level /broadcast products and fairly expensive. I have seen budget versions on Amazon/Ebay but never been tempted...

    I want to measure the sound frequency as 400, 968 and 2063 Hz. can anybody share me which microphone setup will work fine. I am going to use onboard audio jack of my PC

      Rex Beckett Most measurement mics require phantom power that is not provided by a PC audio input. You could use an external phantom power supply but a better option is to use a measurement mic that has a USB interface. I use the miniDSP UMIK-1 which works well with sound measurement software on PCs, tablets and phones.

    Hi guys. I recently bought my new Behringer C3 but yesterday I broke my mount for my microphone stand. Does anybody know where to get a new one? I tried to fix it with glue but the final result were not very promising. Please help, I want to continue recording...

    Good day, I would like to have specification sheet of BA 85a, including: polar pattern and Frequency response diagrams. Behringer provides some specifications but I also need: Field Sens. on MV/Pa, Self Noise and SNR Ratio. Also I would like to have Polar pattern diagram (graph). Yours,

      Nic Jones Hi there.

      All publicly available specifications that we provide can be found in the QUICK START GUIDE

      This is the only information that we provide.

      Ts Kos You do not provide self noise or polar pattern diagram? Are your products oriented as "tools" or as "toys"? All these specifications not provided are so bad that you choose not to provide them or you don't take your clients seriously enough to provide them with specs which even some Chinese makes provide and are IMPORTANT for mic placement and use?
