I use this for ambient recordings - I'm usually recording as part of gathering material for video, and so I have enough gear without a multiple-mic stereo setup. This offers a pleasing stereo image, low noise for getting quieter ambient sounds, and nice response for, say, rain drops hitting bricks...
i can't say it's 'the best mic out there' as i don't have the luxury of comparing esoteric options.. but combined with my FET modded marantz recorder, i have been more than pleased with the finesse and feathery detail this mic is able to p/u, and a robust low end response as well.
For outdoor ambience there is no equal. Used with a good recorder, this mic displays an extremely low noise floor and picks up everything. I mean EVERYTHING. Superb atmospheric sound. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Easy To Use, Good Audio
Purchased this mic based on a number of exceptional examples from other respected field recordists I have heard using this mic. I have been looking for that perfect-almost mic for professional field recording.
Love everything about it - sound quality, no existent self noise, ergonomics, ability to fit inside Rode blimp! I wish I had a 4 channels recorder so I will justify a second one... :-)
I upgraded to this microphone from the Rode Stereo VidMic (3.5mm microphone adapter). With this being my first XLR Mic I was excited to use it based on the other reviews I have read, and the sound samples I listened to. This microphone is amazing. Audio recorded sounds very rich and clear.
I record nature sounds, particularly close lightning strikes. I use this on an EX-1 with a Rycote windjammer. I have tried so many microphones and many of them cannot handle the db thunder of a close lightning strike, the mics tend to collapse causing a crackle.
excellent microphone I have been using this to video Rock bands such as Demon,Lawless,Tygers of Pan Tang,Dirty White Boyz and A couple of videos for Mr Mark Stanway with my Canon XHA1s semi pro camera the audio quality is outstanding for the price and stereo separation is also excellent highly...
It took me a while to post this review because I did not have any sound recorder to test with. I did ensure that it did work by hooking it up to a friend's mixer, but it wasn't until we rented a Zoom F8 at work that I was able to hear what the BP4025 could really do.
This mic sounds great! It's ver easy to use and great for recording sound effects.
