Electro-Voice PL80A overview

  • 1Description

Finished in black with a silver grille, the Electro-Voice PL80a is a PL Series handheld supercardioid dynamic microphone offering an EQ-friendly tone for optimal reproduction of vocals, speech, and instruments in concerts, public address, houses of worship, and live stage applications. Its dynamic capsule is shock-mounted to reduce handling noise. It delivers a frequency response of 80 Hz to 16 kHz with a gentle boost centered at approximately 5 kHz.

Its neodymium magnet provides a high output and low noise floor without the need for external power. The supercardioid polar pattern consistently rejects sound at its off-axis points and yields high immunity to feedback. The XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most microphone preamps, mixer inputs, and portable PA systems. The PL80a ships with a mic stand adapter and a soft, zippered gig bag.

Supercardioid polar pattern delivers tight directionality, high gain before feedback, and enhanced rejection of off-axis sound at points 120 degrees to the rear of the mic
Neodymium magnet offers enhanced output and operational stability
Shock-mounted capsule minimizes handling noise and impedes the transfer of vibration through the mic stand
Rugged construction and fine mesh Memraflex grille provide tour-worthy durability

    Electro-Voice PL80A reviews

    PL80a Handheld Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone (Black with Silver Grille) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from use it as a sledgehammer if you don't need a mic The output on this dynamic mic is quite low and, I think, best used for live performance applications. For field recording, I can't use it, as I'd planned. Also, it's sturdy aka too heavy to hand hold for even a fairly short period; requiring a fishpole, which isn't always in the kit.
