The Electro-Voice Model RE50 omnidirectional dynamic microphone
Description and Applications The Electro-Voice RE50 and RE50/B are specially shock-isolated, omni-directional, dynamic microphones created for the most exacting professional applications.
With an advancement in shock-mounting techniques, these mics were designed particularly for hand-held broadcast and sound reinforcement use. All handling noises, clothing noises and even cord shock have been isolated from the microphone element so that mechanically induced noise is greatly reduced. By use of a high-mass zinc internal acoustic chamber, shock-mounted within the machined aluminum outer casting, the RE50 and RE50/B offer a degree of isolation unprecedented in an omni-directional dynamic microphone.
The internal transducer uses a mechanical nesting concept all its own. Each part is nested inside another so that the transducer (head assembly) is nearly a solid structure. It is highly resistant to damage from shock. the diaphragm is unaffected by temperature extremes and atmospheric conditions. A carefully designed integral windscreen and blast filter provide excellent protection from wind noise, excessive sibilance, and annoying P pops. the RE50 and RE50/B have a grille that bounces back to retain its shape. A four-stage pop filter prevents dust and magnetic particles from reaching the diaphragm. the RE50/B’s attractive non-reflecting semi-gloss black finish is ideal for on-camera use.
