The PR 40 Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone from Heil Sound is a high-performance dynamic microphone ideal for use as a vocal mic for talk-show hosts and other voice-over applications. The large dynamic element produces a smooth response with an articulate and natural midrange. The size of the diaphragm, combined with a low mass and an efficient NdFeB magnet structure, allow the microphone to achieve a wide dynamic range and capture high SPLs, making it a great kick drum mic as well.

This front-address microphone has 4 rear ports to reject off-axis noise, resulting in a smooth, tight cardioid pickup pattern with reduced proximity effect. The steel body and internal humbucking coil shield the microphone, making it safe for use near video monitors and noisy lighting fixtures. An internal Sorbothane shockmount decouples the microphone's dynamic element from the body to reduce the effects of handling noise.

How do u hook up and use this mic with an iMac?
Asked by: Anthony M.
You will need to use an Audio Interface between the mic and computer. This turns the analog signal of the mic into a digital signal that your computer can use and record. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1194649-REG/esi_esi_m22u_maya22_usb_flexible_high.html

is there a stand that I can use with this (already have a boom arm)?
Asked by: Donielle
This is a large mic, but it comes with a standard adapter so you can screw it onto the end of a mic stand (boom or otherwise). It should work with any standard mic stand. If you want a shock mount around the body, be sure to get a large one that can fit approx 46mm-53mm.

Does the current (2018-2019) version of this mic have a hum bucking coil? The specs on the Heil website don't mention it.
Asked by: Lee
The current model does feature an internal hum bucking coil which shields the microphone, allowing you to use it near video monitors and noisy light fixtures.
