I'd like to correct one point.  The list price of the M80 is $239, which would make the street price much less than $270.


I don't know how I got that wrong. Maybe because it seems like $270 would not be out of line for this microphone.

The $40.00 might not seem like much, but it brings the M80 down to a much more crowded price point.

In checking some online dealer pricing, I don't find anyone listing a selling price of less than $239.00, so it looks like I was not the only one who missed the pricing memo.

I bet a $199.00 street price would be like opening the flood gates. This is assuming I am not the only one who has a use for a cardioid dynamic that's more than "just a vocal mic".

I'll be banging these around this weekend, my plans are for BRVs, snare, and electric guitar. If my "Diva" will let me I'll also see how it compares her KMS140.

At the risk of looking uncool, I'll just ask...

What the heck is a BRV?

Jason Dermer:
BRV is board tape speak for Back Round Vocalist

Duncan McLennan:
Well, now that it's an official Road Test item, I don't feel bad linking to the other thread that shows my initial impressions (and some others) that I started a few months back.

Jon Roberts:
Any more info on the M80? Curious to hear how people are fairing with them.
