Ideal for broadcast, podcast, or voice-over applications, the Electro-Voice RE320 Broadcast Announcer Microphone Kit from B&H includes the RE320 vocal & instrument dynamic microphone, the matte-black Auray SSM-BC10 microphone suspension shockmount, a foam pop filter, a two-section broadcast arm, and an XLR cable.
The spring-articulated boom arm and shockmount with swivel basket help reduce unwanted noise and vibrations while allowing you to precisely position the microphone for optimal voice recording.
Electro-Voice RE320 Variable-D Dynamic Vocal and Instrument Microphone
The RE320 Variable-D Dynamic Vocal and Instrument Microphone from Electro-Voice features a neodymium element, sensitivity, and frequency response well suited to handle the gamut of recording applications.
Electro-Voice's Variable-D tonal response aides in combating the proximity effect as well as create an even tonal response at 180° of the capsule making it suitable for capturing a wide variety of vocal and instrument sources. Its neodymium capsule handles high SPL levels making it great at capturing transient signals from amplifier cabinets, percussion instruments, horns, loud vocals, and more.
In addition, the microphone features a kick drum curve switch, which automatically adjusts for the frequency response of kick drums. The RE320 ships with a hard case.
Two-Position Frequency Response Contour Switch
- Selecting the left-hand switch position engages a curve specifically designed for use on kick drums. With dips and peaks exactly where kick drums need a little EQ attention, the result is an incredibly tight "insta-kick" sound requiring little if any additional EQ when the microphone is properly positioned at the drum.
- Selecting the right-hand switch position engages a flatter, more linear curve designed to be ideal for other instruments (such as guitar amps, bass amps, low toms, percussion, brass and wind instruments etc.) as well as voice (music and speech) in many applications. The response is smooth, natural, and articulate with a minimum of discolored off-axis bleed from surrounding sound sources.
Humbucking Coil Technology
- Utilizing the same humbucking coil technology found in the RE20 and RE27N/D to arrest electro-magnetic field interference introduced from sources close to the microphone, the RE320 produces an ultraquiet signal path free from the hum and buzz found in other dynamic microphones.
- Electro-Voice’s exclusive solution to the tonal changes associated with the proximity effect found in other directional microphones. Providing balanced and uniform frequency response up to 180° off-axis, the result is always stable and linear tonal performance even when the sound source is moving around the mic.
Auray SSM-BC10 Microphone Suspension Shockmount (Black Matte)
The black matte SSM-BC10 Microphone Suspension Shockmount from Auray is designed to keep your front-address microphone free from vibrations and noise that can often affect broadcast and voiceover applications. The heavy-duty bands isolate your microphone, eliminating the vibrations that can travel through your mic stand or broadcast arm.
The shockmount is equipped with a standard 5/8"-27 threaded socket and fits most mic stands and broadcast arms. Its locking knob and protective inner ring secure your mic in place while protecting its finish. The swiveling basket allows for precise microphone placement.

Auray WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for Large Diaphragm Condenser Mics
The Auray WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for the Senal UB-440 is made from specialty acoustic foam designed to reduce broadband wind noise with minimal high frequency loss. The density of the foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from vocal plosives and wind pressure without dramatically muffling the sound.
This windscreen is effective indoors for protection against drafts caused by air conditioners and can be used in calm to light outdoor breeze conditions (0 to 7 mph). It also reduces vocal plosives in close microphone placement situations. Users can generally expect a 4 to 8 dB reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the very slight high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the notable wind noise reduction.
The WCF-UB440's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen has a height of 3.5" and is designed to fit over the Senal UB-440 as well as mics from AKG, Shure, Neumann, Mi-Tek, MXL, Behringer, SE Electronic, Rode, and most other large diaphragm condensers with a grill diameter of larger than 2".
The WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for the Senal UB-440 is an effective solution for basic wind protection.
