45 db SPL!!!  That's the main selling spec right there!



LOL, I hope they meant -45 dB SPL sensitivity. They forgot the minus sign.
If it had a true sensitivity of positive 45 dB, it would have to output 177.8 volts when subjected to the standard 94 DB SPL reference level. 
 
Also, it seems that they are not sure whether it is a condenser or dynamic mic.
From the description:
"Condenser Microphone Sound Recording Dynamic + Mic Shock Mount"
 
"Neodymiun magnet for high signal-to-noise ratio"
 
WTH?
Condenser mics don't use a magnet.
 
LOL.

Mine arrived.  Blue/Silver.  It's shorter than I thought it'd be.  The diaphragm is laughable.  The components are sandwiched on the inside, so I couldn't quickly see what's going on, and figured it wasn't worth the trouble.  I doubt I'll be sending this to Jim Williams for modification anytime soon.  
 
It will be a stocking stuffer for an assistant or runner, or a talkback mic.

Like many on YouTube, I have discovered to my extreme disappointment that this $4.60 mic isn't better than my $400 mic. I am outraged! 
 
I would return it if the foam cap wasn't such a good buy at $4.60.

Re: Excelvan BM-800 Condenser Microphone w/ Shock Mount $4.60 2018/07/13 19:44:56 (permalink)
Got mine today.  It's my understanding that the cable where they wire a XLR to a TRS jack is pretty much lethal if you insert it into a TRS jack with 48volts, since it will short connections as you insert it.  To use it you'd need to turn off the 48v before inserting and then once fully inserted, turn the 48v on.
 
This is the second ultra cheap mic I've got that came with these worthless cables (I bought a long shotgun mic for video recording for a crazy low price a few years ago).  I guess I could splice the two together and make one real cable now.
 
My MXL990 definitely is a better mic, but it cost like 10 times more. :-)

The tracking number for mine was also delivered to Florida by UPS.  But a few hours later USPS delivered the actual package (with a completely different tracking number) to my house.  I don't think they are giving Amazon the correct tracking numbers.

Well, mine WAS indeed delivered to Florida it seems. Find it hard to believe this happened twice accidentally.... I emailed the company and they wrote:

Perhaps this whole thing is some complex scam on Amazon?  When I got the text message about my package failing to deliver I checked the UPS code at the UPS site and it showed it was attempted to deliver to a business in Florida, which wasn't open and they were going to try again the next day.  So I sent them email asking them what the problem was.  The next day UPS marked the package as delivered and someone at the business signed for it.  Then a few hours later USPS delivered the mic to my house.  With a different tracking number and not UPS instead US Post Office.  I sent them another note saying everything was good, but never heard from them at all about it.
 
Odd that this Florida delivery issue would happen twice.

I bet you it is some kind of complex scam. Some kind of insurance thing perhaps? Where they keep pretending to have "lost" a shipment due to error and get paid....
 
Bottom line is, I haven't received mine at all, and not another peep from them after this first email....
 
Now what?

They typically extend your prime for free for a month when an eff up like the occurs.  
 
Stay on them, and they (amazon) should right the wrong.  And if you still don't get it, I dunno, demand a Telefuken 251 as replacement...

Mine is supposed to be delivered on the 21th according to the fedEx tracking info. I ordered the same day as Larry.
I went to the FedEx site, using tracking number,  and the shipment information was sent to fedEx on the 12th but it didn't arrive at fedEx shipping location until the 17th.
It looks to me like they are swamped with orders and a little behind.
Those folks that had their item shipped to Florida -- I think it was just a mistake from the shipper.
 I don't think there is a scam here.
I remember that there was a small group of formites that jumped on the deal early and they received their mic without a problem.

OK, thanks for the info!
 
BTW, I don't and will never have Amazon Prime. Bezos has more than enough money already and I believe in patronizing local independent shops. Purposely paid $100 more than I had to for my Yamaha P115 to put my money where my mouth is for instance...

I did receive mine within two days as Amazon indicated. Haven’t opened yet. If anyone really needs one I have one that could be for sale for just a very small reasonable markup, plus shipping and handling.

For those of you who are looking to buy a mic stand for your $4.60 mic, there is a special on now at Musician's Friend that gives members 1000 free Backstage Pass Points ($10).  If you're not already a member, I think you can sign up for free.  
 
I just bought an $11.99 stand for $1.99.   I also got double points on the $1.99, worth 31 cents on my next purchase!

I'm amazed they could sell anything that picks up sound for this price. It looks tempting but I think I'll go with the egg Mcmuffin instead this time.
