Get detailed, full, and vivid vocal tone in live stage applications and studio recording with the Electro-Voice RE520 handheld supercardioid condenser vocal microphone. Its supercardioid condenser capsule produces a wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz while delivering a high maximum SPL of 150 dB. The supercardioid polar pattern yields optimal acoustic isolation by rejecting sounds entering from the rear and sides of the diaphragm. A selectable 150 Hz high-pass filter allows simple and effective control of low frequencies.

Plosives and wind noise are attenuated by the integrated multi-stage pop filter, and the internal shockmount absorbs vibrations to reduce handling noise. Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output connector and phantom-powered operation, the RE520 is compatible with most mixers, audio interfaces, and mic preamps. It includes a stand clip and a gig bag.
