check out ebay.. you should be able to do better.. it is
almost a joke hundreds of sellers. I there are different
versions of bm800. Must be a kit sold to many workshop assemblers,
all competing for the lowest price.
a Chinese networking hardware company I sold for back in the 80s,
wanted to sell hubs to a large network card buyer. The account
built computers and needed a NIC for each cpu they built. NO NEED
for a hub, but the company kept lowering its price on the hubs to
get this customer to buy the hubs...would not listen...and never
could sell them hubs. Perhaps you remember the back page of the
Computer Shopper...." USA FLEX" sold the clones/// I think that
is why the mics are soooo cheap. No HUBS !!!!! ever.

Thanks for the input.
Yes, I've read many positive stories. Heard one
on air from a guy I know personally. Sounded very nice and was
better than his SM-50 desk mic. Was clearer and a little
punchy. $37 delivered with boom
and lots of other accessories.
Just had to try one.

i bought one of thozse bm800 mics... I used it with my
elecraft k3, which provides the voltage on the mic line
for the electret.
since the mic provided with the elad is a icom
knockoff... it too is probably a electret... so IF you
wire it correctly it should work fine.
That mic , if you pull it apart ( which is the first
thing i did ) the 'large" element was open front and
back... which would pick up shack noise, so you could open
it up and put some absorbent stuff between the back side
of the element and the case...
I had to buy one to see how bad it was...and was suprised
how well it worked. It is an electret so how bad could
it be ???
looks way too cool for my shack... but unbelevable for
Over 40 years in audio business I was a factory
representative for different companies... Sennheiser, AKG
then Shure brothers ... so I had to try one of the fancy

I'm not familiar with the USB mic from
Walmart. Can you please advise?
I was with a oem
phantom power supply . It sounded great but
was intermittent using the 3.5 mm computer
input you can swap the oem power supply out
for the powered beringer power supply that
takes the xlr input and converts it to a usb
this takes care of the intermittent issue but
some users end up with a squelch crash when
they key up depending on the c.v sound card.
just went to walmart and got the 25.00 usb
mic and did not look back works 100%ans
