Electro-Voice RE27N/D - Cardioid Variable-D Dynamic N/DYM Voiceover/Instrument Microphone with Internal Pop Filter

You Pay: $499.00

The Electro Voice RE 27 N/D is a professional, dynamic cardioid microphone designed for broadcast, recording and sound reinforcement applications. Much like the RE 20, the RE 27 N/D is a standard in radio and television, but remains a proven tool in the recording studio as well. Considered an improvement on the RE 20, the 27 N/D features a Neodymium based magnet which greatly improves sensitivity, frequency response and SPL handling, resulting in higher gain (up to 6dB more output) while keeping the noise floor low. In addition, a highly effective hum-bucking coil is used to attenuate hum from lighting, bad grounds and other sources.

Due to it's variable D design, the microphone is virtually free of bass-boosting "proximity effect" when used close. The result is smooth, even frequency response no matter the proximity and position of the speaker.Because of it's dynamic element, the RE 27 N/D also features excellent transient (peak) response. In addition the microphone features an internal blast filter, completely covering every opening. Singers and talkers can literally touch the microphone with their lips without worry of "pops" or excessive sibilance. The supercardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes room ambiance and off-axis noise. The greatest attenuation occurs at 180 degrees, directly behind the microphone.

Neodymium Based Magnet
The microphone is designed around a Neodymium based magnet, greatly improving sensitivity, output gain structure and frequency response.
Supercardioid Pattern
The RE 27 N/D features a supercardioid polar pattern which is effective minimizing off-axis noise and ambiance.
Internal Windscreen
An internal blast and wind filter eliminates "pop" and wind noise at the closest proximity.

The "bass tilt down" switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long reach situations and eliminates low frequency noise and rumble.

              Dollar for dollar, you can't find a better broadcast mic. I've heard a number of cons about this or that, but in a pro studio, this is the mic for broadcast and voiceovers.

                    A colleague of mine loaned me a RE20 for a video project I was working on and loved the results we achieved for voice over recordings. I decided to purchase the RE27 thinking it was the latest and greatest from EV with upgrades and additional adjustment capabilities over the RE20. Although it had greater output, in my opinion, I found voice recordings not to be nearly as warm as the RE20. To my ears it has a tinnier shriller sound than the 20 even when rolling off the high end with the dip switch on the mic. I was disappointed and returned the mic. B&H promptly refunded my money.

                      I was looking for a voice over microphone that could moonlight for acoustic guitar applications, and the RE27 really delivered. In the short time I've had it I've applied it in both scenarios with much success.

                      For V.O. recording the sound quality is unmatched. This mic is extremely sensitive, which can be a pro or con depending on your application. If you're recording in a non-soundproofed environment, you might find yourself paying extra attention to environmental noises and isolation efforts - but it's well worth it to be able to pick up all the subtleties of a performance.

                      As an instrument mic I set it about 3 feet away from the guitar, pointed at the sound hole. I was then able to play and sing and both were recorded with clarity and excellent tone and balance. I've had mixed results using a single microphone to record acoustic guitar and vocal simultaneously but the RE27 was perfect in this situation. A few minutes experimenting with placement and the roll off switches was all it took.

                      Not all of my equipment can supply phantom power, so it's nice to have a top quality mic that doesn't require it.
