Hey everyone. This weeks mic test was requested by a viewer and it is the Excelvan BM-700. The sister model to the BM-800 that I tested out last week. If I am being honest with all of you, I have no idea what the difference between the two mics are. The specs are the exact same and they sound incredibly similar without an apparent winner between the two in audio quality.
The thing that is strange about these mics is that they are mass produced, and then sold to companies who slap their name on them, so you end up with multiple companies selling the exact same mic. And there isn't much consistency or control over the product. Apparently, there are version of the BM-700 and BM-800 out there that actually require a 9-volt battery. But I wasn't able to find a way to request an active or passive mic on amazon. So it may be a craps shoot. But it sounds great, and it's $30. If you want more information, check out the BM-800 test that I did last week.
