I literally tore my hair until i finally got them i was on insanity i basically forced garrus to overload the shit out of them while i did energy drain then i did concussive shot and incendiary ammo while garrus used armor piercing also one tip is when yourhealth is draining from the missile use a medpack if tou get hit twice and dont use one with only one banshee left with low health lets just say my other controllers in heaven right now

Having just completed Mass Effect 3 on Insanity as an Adept (Level 60), I primarily rely on Energy Drain my bonus power) to destroy barriers and shields and Warp to take out it's armor. I carry the Vindicator assault rifle and the Arc Pistol (both at Class X) so that my cool down bonus is +185%. I also wear the Inferno Armor for +30% cool down and +30% power damage. I can take on a Banshee on my own if I have to. I generally rely on my weapons as a last resort since I primarily rely on my Biotics (applies to playing as Sentinel and Vanguard as well).

I try to keep a decent distance so that I can attempt to avoid the Banshee's warp throws. Since warp can track targets I manage to dodge them less than 50% of the time. Run around a lot if there room to run.

I use whatever squadmate powers are useful.

Garrus - AP Ammo / Overload
Liara - Warp / Warp Ammo
Javik - Dark Channel
James - Carnage / Incendiary Ammo / Grenades
Ashley - Disruptor Ammo / Concussive Shot / Inferno Grenade (never used in missions with Banshees)
Kaiden - Overload / Reave
EDI - Overload / Incinerate (never used in missions with Banshees)
Tali - Overload (Other than the Geth / Quarian war missions, I never had Tali as a squadmate in any of my games)

All encounters with Banshees aren't too difficult except in the final battle where there are 4 of them (if I am not mistaken) in the 5th wave; Liara and Javik were my squadmates. Fortunately you only have to survive long enough for EDI to reprogram the last two missiles to end the battle. Easier said than done though.

I find it best to let your teammates take damage and keep your distance, as mentioned before things like warp help alot. It also helps to have people on your team with warp/armour piercing ammo that applies to you, having a pretty powerful gun doesn't hurt either; like a graal with barrel chokes.
