Electro-Voice RE50B Overview

The Electro-Voice RE50B Omnidirectional Microphone and Tascam DR-10X Recorder Kit from B&H features an RE50B handheld dynamic microphone and a Tascam 24-bit/48 kHz recording solution for ENG (Electronic News Gathering) applications. It can be used to capture audio during interviews, press conferences, and meetings with any dynamic or battery-powered condenser microphone with an XLR output.

The Tascam DR-10X recorder features both manual and automatic gain settings, and has a low-cut filter and limiter to prevent overloads. The dual recording mode captures a copy of the audio at a lower level, so if there is distortion, you have a backup safety copy. It records to microSD/SDHC cards. Recording can begin instantly by holding the record side switch while turning the unit on.

In addition, The Electro-Voice RE50B microphone is considered the industry standard for handheld interview mics in broadcast television production. It is heard and seen in the reporting of news correspondents around the globe.

Every day, for local, national, and international news reports, the Electro-Voice RE50B gathers the audio for news interviews. Designed specifically as an ENG/EFP interview microphone, the RE50B's custom Dyna-Damp "mic-within-a-mic" shockmount provides extremely low handling noise for clear sound. A large, built-in Acoustifoam filter keeps wind and P-pop noise to an absolute minimum, indoors or out. Frequency response is 80 Hz to 13 kHz.

TASCAM DR-10X Micro Plug-On Audio Recorder

With the TASCAM DR-10X Micro Plug-On Audio Recorder attached directly to your preferred microphone, you can record full-resolution dialog and speech while skipping the trouble of long cable runs and avoiding the confusion of configuring a wireless microphone system. Whether you use a handheld dynamic mic or a battery-powered condenser (both available separately), the lightweight DR-10X can be discreetly affixed to the mic without weighing it down. Thanks to its small, low-profile design, the DR-10X is ideal for news gathering, interviews, weddings, and vlogs where the audio equipment needs to stay out of sight.

Run-and-gun videographers will appreciate its ultra-compact form factor and power-up-and-record workflow for time-sensitive shoots. There's no need to select inputs, arm tracks, or choose channel modes. Connect the DR-10X to your microphone, start recording, and let it roll for the rest of the day. A single AAA battery will keep it running for up to 10 hours, so all-day gigs won't be a problem. Power the DR-10X via USB if you need indefinite operating time for sessions that continue on into the night. Worried about clipping? Don't be. The DR-10X's limiter and auto-level functions work to prevent overloading, while the dual-recording feature makes a safety track at a lower level, just in case.

Inconspicuous and Capable
The lightweight DR-10X easily attaches to a handheld microphone for the ideal compact news gathering recording system. A captive XLR connector keeps the DR-10X firmly connected to your microphone, capturing interviews at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz Broadcast WAV resolution. Offload recordings through the micro-USB connection or by removing the microSD card.
Works with Dynamic Mics or Battery-Powered Condensers
Designed for plug-on connection to an XLR-equipped microphone, the DR-10X requires no cables for operation and features a locking mechanism that ensures a secure, stable fit. Since no phantom power is supplied by the DR-10X, it is perfect for use with handheld dynamic mics or battery-powered shotgun condenser mics mounted on a camera or boompole.
Volume-Adjustable 3.5mm Headphone Output
Connect headphones to the 3.5mm mini-jack output for simple monitoring of file playback or input while recording. The volume is adjustable via side-panel buttons.
Dual Recording Creates a Safety Track at a Lower Level
Knowing that filmmakers and videographers often experience sudden audio volume jumps during filming, the DR-10X has several features to prevent distorted audio, and the most secure is dual recording. This feature captures a copy of your signal at a lower level (-6 dB or -12 dB), as a safety track in case of distortion.
Automatic File Closing Saves File Data upon Power Loss
You can always monitor the battery level on the easy-to-read OLED display. If the battery runs out in the middle of a recording, the unit will automatically save the file before turning off so your take isn't lost. The case is designed so that the batteries can be changed quickly without detaching the recorder from your microphone.
Automatic Gain and Limiter Inhibit Distortion
If the input sound level is too low or too high, an automatic gain control function can increase or decrease the recording volume to an appropriate level. Additionally, the limiter prevents distortion caused by sudden input overloads. These functions save you from worrying about input levels in situations when there is no second chance.
Supports microSD/microSDHC Cards
The DR-10X is compatible with microSD cards (up to 2GB capacity) and microSDHC cards (up to 32GB capacity). Record in WAV format for uncompressed audio quality, or use MP3 format for extended recording time on your media card. A 2GB card will yield over four hours of mono recording time at 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution.
Operates up to 10 Hours Continuously
A single alkaline AAA battery (available separately) will provide up to 10 hours of recording time at 24-bit / 28 kHz resolution. The DR-10X can be operated on disposable lithium or rechargeable NiMH batteries, or via USB bus power.
Compact and Lightweight Body
The DR-10X has been designed to be small, light, and unobtrusive. Perfect for news correspondents, documentary subjects, or wedding hosts, the DR-10X won't come between you and the perfect shot. Plus, since it weighs just 2.4 ounces with a battery (available separately), your subject will forget it's even there.
Record Switch Design Prevents Accidental Use
The recording switch uses a sliding mechanism to prevent accidental use. In addition, the hold function can prevent recording from being stopped by unintentional contact with a button.
WAV and MP3 Formats
The DR-10X has a built-in clock and supports recording to BWF format, which has time information for improved searching, editing, and software compatibility. In addition to WAV and BWF format files, recording and playback of MP3 files is supported.
Additional Features
  • Creates mono or poly WAV files
  • Adjustable recording level
  • Low-cut filter reduces rumble
  • Time track incrementing function can create new files at regular intervals (about every 15 minutes) during recording
  • Easy-to-read OLED display
  • Micro-USB port enables easy data exchange with computers

I already have a Tascam DR-10L Pro. Is there an adaptor that will allow me to use this (or another ENG mic) without a new rec?
Asked by: dominic
An adapter cable such as BH #RECASEK100M could technically be used to connect a dynamic ENG mic to the Tascam DR-10L, but this would not be recommended. Dynamic microphones will need more gain than the DR-10L is designed to provide, and results may not be as desired.

question

Unsure about which cable to purchase as microphone will be plugged into Azden FMX-DSLR mixer. Do I need the Kopul or the Hosa?
Asked by: Steve C.
Look like the FMX-DSLR mix has normal XRL connectors so any normal mic cable (XLR male on one end and female on the other) will work (not brand specific). I use the Hosa cables as my house cable brand but any brand should work as long as it is a high-quality cable (life is too short for cheap cables ;-). I use both the RE50/B mic as well as a Heil PR-40 with my DSLR but use another mixer brand.Bill

Is this ideal for a podcast? Or is there a better handheld option?
Asked by: Kelly
I have owned this mic for years and love it. The RE-50 is excellent for field interviews, sort of a industrial-grade answer to recording under any conditions. It could work in a pinch for podcasting, but it's not ideal for that purpose, especially if you move into video, because it requires staying on top of the microphone. The usual suspects for podcast / broadcast are the Shure SM7B, Electrovoice RE-20 and RE-27, and Audio-Technica BP40. But if you like the hand-held form factor, check out the Sennheiser e935 sounds great, price is right, has great off-axis rejection, and doesn't require a Cloudlifter or Fethead. Stick it on a desk stand and you're done ;-) You don't want a condenser mic for podcast unless you're in an acoustically treated studio, picks up way too much background noise. Disaster, don't do it. A dynamic mic with native attenuation of room sounds is the way to go.
