Electro-Voice RE50B Reviews

forever the best hand held mice

By Ben

Cancels out background noise perfectly, well made. No wonder it's the go-to hand held mic for video journalists. It's the best mic for interviews and a great price.

XLR Does Lock @Old Bull Shure FP3 falls off EV RE50/B

By Michael

I've had my RE50B for years, but maybe this reviewer has an even older version or something. I can confirm that the RE50B has a locking XLR connector. A cable or transmitter is not going to fall off unless there's something wrong with the connector on the cable or transmitter. My E-V mic is great, but I'd like to compare a Sennheiser MD-46 or 42. The Senn sounded a little clearer on one YouTube review I watched recently. Does anyone know if E-V or Senn is better in the wind?

Reliable, Quality Mic

I've been using some version of the RE50B mic for nearly 20 years now. It is my go-to field mic for radio reporting. The mic produces excellent audio and has very little handling noise. Of all of the mics I have, this one works the best in windy conditions. (I use it with a nice windscreen.) It's an all-around good mic.

Bought this mic to use for my internet TV talk show. It was everything I imagined and more. Superior sound quality, easy to grip design, and flag looks good with my FoXXXy TV logo on it! Thank you for an awesome product!

Great for the red carpet

Currently using this to interview A-listers on the red carpet at iHeartRadio events. Fairly directional and nicely isolated from handling noise. Bought a second one as a back up, but haven't needed it in quite a few years.

Pound For Pound Best Handheld Mic Around

I used this microphone on a daily basis in my many years in broadcast news. When I moved into government, the first thing I did was to order one of these mics, because of its durability and that the sound is and always has been crystal clear and true to the original voice.

question

Unsure about which cable to purchase as microphone will be plugged into Azden FMX-DSLR mixer. Do I need the Kopul or the Hosa?
Asked by: Steve C.
Look like the FMX-DSLR mix has normal XRL connectors so any normal mic cable (XLR male on one end and female on the other) will work (not brand specific). I use the Hosa cables as my house cable brand but any brand should work as long as it is a high-quality cable (life is too short for cheap cables ;-). I use both the RE50/B mic as well as a Heil PR-40 with my DSLR but use another mixer brand.Bill

Is this ideal for a podcast? Or is there a better handheld option?
Asked by: Kelly
I have owned this mic for years and love it. The RE-50 is excellent for field interviews, sort of a industrial-grade answer to recording under any conditions. It could work in a pinch for podcasting, but it's not ideal for that purpose, especially if you move into video, because it requires staying on top of the microphone. The usual suspects for podcast / broadcast are the Shure SM7B, Electrovoice RE-20 and RE-27, and Audio-Technica BP40. But if you like the hand-held form factor, check out the Sennheiser e935 sounds great, price is right, has great off-axis rejection, and doesn't require a Cloudlifter or Fethead. Stick it on a desk stand and you're done ;-) You don't want a condenser mic for podcast unless you're in an acoustically treated studio, picks up way too much background noise. Disaster, don't do it. A dynamic mic with native attenuation of room sounds is the way to go.
