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.
