      Comments about Electro-Voice 635A - Dynamic Omnidirectional Mic:

      They call it "the hammer" for good reason! Very tough. It does look a little old fashioned in the fawn beige color (like old government furniture!) I was very surprised how short/thin it is when I opened the box. I have largish hands so even with the XLR connector, making itv longer, it is still short & feels tiny. I'd prefer a handheld mic a bit longer/thicker but will keep this for sure as it fits very easily into my kit as a backup. Doesn't need to be protected, just throw it in!

      The output is very low. I have to push my MixPre-D a little more that I'd like to to get a decent level. I'd recommend the 635N/D-B with its neodymium magnet. (I haven't used that model but am told it has a higher output level.)

          Comments about Electro-Voice 635A - Dynamic Omnidirectional Mic:

          Like Paul K said, there are many of these mics still in use after decades of use & abuse. I used the same one for over 15 years of run and gun in the rain, snow, & humidity. A reporter left mine in the grass while covering a barn fire and it was run over by a county fire truck. We pulled it out of the dirt and it broke the mic flag, but the mic itself didn't even flinch. We had 9 photogs at one point and they did misplace a few, but I only remember having to replace 1 mic that was damaged in the line of duty. You will need a foam windscreen if you're outdoors in anything more than a light breeze, but that's true of most any mic out there. Yes, there are better sounding mics out there, but this model is quite passable for local TV news gathering. But I really can't think of any mic as durable as the 635A.

              At first I had a lot of doubts on such a small microphone, But I tested it in different condition and it has a great response for speaking voice or singing. The only thin I would change is that I'd prefer if it had a longer handheld
