    Electro-Voice 635A/B reviews

    635A/B Omnidirectional Handheld Dynamic ENG Microphone (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly Indestructible! Like Paul K said, there are many of these mics still in use after decades of use & abuse. I used the same one for over 15 years of run and gun in the rain, snow, & humidity. A reporter left mine in the grass while covering a barn fire and it was run over by a county fire truck. We pulled it out of the dirt and it broke the mic flag, but the mic itself didn't even flinch. We had 9 photogs at one point and they did misplace a few, but I only remember having to replace 1 mic that was damaged in the line of duty. You will need a foam windscreen if you're outdoors in anything more than a light breeze, but that's true of most any mic out there. Yes, there are better sounding mics out there, but this model is quite passable for local TV news gathering. But I really can't think of any mic as durable as the 635A.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't use it as a hammer, but could They call it the hammer for good reason! Very tough. It does look a little old fashioned in the fawn beige color (like old government furniture!) I was very surprised how short/thin it is when I opened the box. I have largish hands so even with the XLR connector, making itv longer, it is still short & feels tiny. I'd prefer a handheld mic a bit longer/thicker but will keep this for sure as it fits very easily into my kit as a backup. Doesn't need to be protected, just throw it in! The output is very low. I have to push my MixPre-D a little more that I'd like to to get a decent level. I'd recommend the 635N/D-B with its neodymium magnet. (I haven't used that model but am told it has a higher output level.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hammer Mic sounds great We always called this tried and true mic the Hammer because it is almost indestructable, a favorite for news gathering and professional location work. It has a full, crisp sound and sensitive pickup. Pretty good at minimizing vibrations from hand-holding.
    Date published: 2010-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. Essential and very useful. Professional interview kits should always contain this OMNI microphone or one very similar to it. If you get in the habit of using an OMNIDIRECTIONAL mic for handheld interviews, you will eventually realize that many, many interviews are saved from the awful off-mic level dropout that very often occurs wirh any handheld cardiod or unidirectional style mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hammer The 635 ENG microphone is the first and last mic you will ever buy. It just doesn't quit, no matter what the environment. The only reason I brought this one is because I lost one I had for almost ten years. The price is fair and B&H got to me within 48 hours.
    Date published: 2015-01-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 635A Omnidirectional Handheld Dynamic Microphone The 635A Omnidirectional Handheld Dynamic ENG Microphone is the perfect mic to pick up all of the NAT sound we need for our Broadcasts. Surround the Stadium with these bad boys you will be sure to catch the quality of audio you need.
    Date published: 2016-09-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound small package At first I had a lot of doubts on such a small microphone, But I tested it in different condition and it has a great response for speaking voice or singing. The only thin I would change is that I'd prefer if it had a longer handheld
    Date published: 2011-09-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best News Mic Ever We use this Microphone for gathering television news. This style mic has been used for this purpose for many years. We still have some in use that forty or more years old.
