    Electro-Voice RE50B Reviews

    RE50B - Omnidirectional Dynamic Shockmounted ENG Microphone (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Latest Version has a Locking XLR Collar Just to add a counter-point to the Most Liked Negative Review which stated that his RE50/B did not have a locking XLR Collar. I have a (2013) Electro-Voice RE50/B and it definitely has a locking XLR Collar on the bottom and my Sennheiser G3 Plug On transmitter locks securely and does not fall out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected The EV did not disappoint on its first use at the London Notting Hill Carnival launch. I was commissioned to produce three short clips for webcast and a 40 minute film of the event. The EV was used for interviewing VIPs and distinguished guests. Linked to a Shure FP33 audio capture was pristine despite my 15 year old son at the controls. No echo or handling noise inside and certainly no wind noise outside. I didn't even use a windshield! The presenter I used kept waving the mic around initially due to nervousness (or did she lie to me about not being camera shy)? Not a single pop. There were no reflections in the video footage due to the matt black finish which gave it a quality look too. First impressions - excellent sound capture with quality you can feel. I look forward to the journalistic and documentary use I purchased it for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply one of the best for ENG I picked up this mic for my personal ENG kit after using several at various television stations. These things are wonderful, literally go through wars and keep on working. Exceptional reproduction and response, yet relatively forgiving if the reporter can't get quite close enough or get the perfect angle. It's dynamic so power is never an issue. I run it through a JuicedLink XLR-mini adapter, and find that I get very adequate levels. A true classic that still performs with the best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound even when held upside down I purchased this mic because of its omnidirectional capabilities and it served its purpose during its first job in use. What Im about to tell you is absolutely 100% true. While shooting a rehearsal dinner the Mother of the Groom picked up the ElectroVoice RE50/B and began to speak but what she didn't realize was that she was holding the mic upside down. Even with the mic being held upside down the audio still sounded good. All of my other directional mics would not have been able to pic up her voice but the OmniDirectional capabilities of the mic worked great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gold standard for TV news Use it any time it need a dependable stick mic. Seldom need a wind screen. Reporters drop it all the time and keeps working fine. When the finish gets dinged up you can send it in to be refurbished.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All-Around Stick Mic I use this microphone as a go-to in all news gathering situations, especially when things get too noisy for a lav. The noise isolation on the RE50/B is top notch, as is the sound quality for general news gathering needs. These microphones can take a beating and keep on performing at a high level. It has never failed me in any weather situation I have come across in the field. Only negative I can think of is that the set screw for the XLR tends to come loose occasionally, but this is going to be true with any mic that is put through the ringer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable and stylish microphone I shoot interviews for my own online channel and finally (after three years of borrowing from friends) I wanted my own. I was looking for a mic that was long enough to fit my 2x2 micflag. After reading the reviews and seeing the price, I felt comfortable in going with the RE50/B and it's just everything I could ask for in terms of style and ease of use. I also bought a wind protector which holds quite nicely.
