omnidirectional dynamic microphone

The Electro-Voice RE55

The Electro-Voice RE55 is an omnidirectional dynamic microphone de­signed for the most demanding professional applications. Ideal for boom or stand mounting in recording and broadcast use, it is excellent also for close-up hand-held use in stage and interview situations.

Smooth, wide-range response, high output level, and low sensitivity to me­chanical shock, combined with functional easy to hold styling, make the RE55 one of the most versatile professional mics ever created. The non-reflecting matte satin nickel finish eliminates hot spots for on-camera use.

This microphone features the exclusive non-metallic E-V Acoustalloy dia­phragm that assures smooth frequency response, and is impervious to damage from extremes of temperature and humidity.

The Electro-Voice RE55 Frequency response

The RE55, an omnidirectional microphone, is outstanding in
situations where uniform sensitivity in all directions is desirable.

  • Frequency response, flat and uniform across the entire usable range,
    makes the RE55 a good choice for symphonic and other wide-range
    recording situations where reverberation is not a problem.

  • Applications include calibration for use as a secondary standard for
    acoustic measurements.

  • Its small diameter (¾-inch shank) makes the RE55 comfortable and convenient for hand-held use by vocalists for stage and television work
    and for news reporters conducting interviews.
