OVERVIEW

Highest gain-before-feedback concert vocal mic.

The Electro-Voice N/D967 Supercardioid Concert Vocal Microphone has a dynamic supercardioid pattern optimized for live vocal performance. It features the highest gain-before-feedback of any concert vocal mic and has excellent uniform supercardioid rejection with only 27% ambient noise pick-up. EV's exclusive Personality frequency shaping switch is not a typical high pass filter, this switch changes the response curve by reducing some low mid content, thus giving the mic more cut through without having to increase high frequencies (which would lead to more potential for feedback). The unique internal micro grill breaks up plosives—those unwanted "B" and "P" pops. The flat top capsule gets you closer to the capsule, which alone gives you 3-5 dB more gain.

The N/D 967 has a removable front grille and pop filter, multistage shockmount, Warm Grip handle, and 50Hz-13kHz frequency response. Feedback reduction during live performance and superior signal-to-noise make the Electro-Voice N/D967 Microphone great for digital recording and sampling. Includes 3-year warranty.

Best applications:
• Vocals in a heavy metal band

• Vocals in clubs where the acoustics are awful (sound bouncing everywhere)

• Drummer/vocalists, guitar player/ vocalists who sing a lot (chances are their amps are pointed at their singing position)

• Production houses (or bands with no sound guys) who would like to leave the background vocal channels up all of the time, but don't want all of the stage muck that comes through those channels and through the mix with typical mics

• Can also be used as a tonal match when a vocalist wants to round out their voice a bit

FEATURES
  • Concert vocal mic
  • Dynamic supercardioid pattern
  • Optimized for live vocal performance

  • Minimal transfer noise

    I thought the mic looked strange when I first saw a fellow musician using one, but the sound won me over! I won't use any other vocal mic, and I have been singing in groups since 1965 (no misprint!) & have used all the other major manufacturers' mics. Of course, for recording, I use condenser mics, but for live performances, to me nothing beats the sound quality and feedback rejection of the ND967.

    The only drawback is that the rubber/plastic body cover on my original mic that I got 7-8 years ago had deteriorated to the point of falling apart. I called Electro-Voice about it, but the person I talked with about my problem was rather vague, and suggested that I find a "dealer near me" to replace the grip. I am very disappointed in their response to the only problem I have encountered with an otherwise stellar product.

    As far as reliability goes, I compared my new mic to the old one (that I now leave set up in my home for rehearsal purposes) and I could not detect any difference in the sound quality between the two AT ALL. As stated earlier, my original is at least 6 or 7 years old, and has performed flawlessly the entire time. I do keep it in the padded case when not in use, and occasionally unscrew the top screen for cleaning purposes, but no other maintenance has been necessary. I highly recommend the EV ND967 to any vocalist for superior audio fidelity, and could probably be used for miking instruments as well, although less expensive alternatives generally serve those uses.

    I own a couple of these, and a couple N/D767s, as well as EV speakers. I've always liked EV products, but the 967 has disappointed me greatly. I did get about five years of use, but I have older mics as well, that just keep working.

    I take excellent care of all my equipment, and this is the first mic I've owned that just stopped working. It may have fallen to the floor one time, not from the stand, but from a table a few feet off a carpeted stage, but I guess that was all it took. Cause I went to use it the next night, and nothing, no sound at all.

    A friend who does some electronic work opened it up but said the problem must be deeper into it than he wanted to go. I tried contacting EV, to see how much it might cost if they repaired it, but they never even responded, which itself is quite disappointing...

    I'll probably have to just toss it, as a repair place would probably charge nearly what's it's worth, just to fix it; and who knows how much longer it would last? So, I suppose if you make sure to avoid any bump or knock whatsoever, I'd recommend it, but I'm not going to buy another...

    Comments about Electro-Voice N/D967 Supercardioid Concert Vocal Microphone:

    I bought this mic because the venues we sing at require us to be very close to the speakers. The super cardioid pickup pattern rejects ambient noise and and feedback. I am able to get a very high output before feedback raises it's ugly head. The only problem I see is with the EQ selection switch which is recessed too far in the body of the mic. I actually need a paper clip to move the switch. In addition, the switch position visibility is very poor in lower lighting situations which are common in some scenarios.

        decent sound but a terrible company to deal with....no answer to three emails complaining that the casing fell apart after 8 months...extremely poor quality and made very cheaply....sound similar tghe schure beta 58 a which is far far far more durable and a better firm to talk to if you have a problem.....

              Comments about Electro-Voice N/D967 Supercardioid Concert Vocal Microphone:

              Bought this mic for my female vocalist. We are a keyboard vocalist duo. We both sing. I am using an old schure beta 58. We sing through a Bose system set up directly behind us due to space constraints at the restaurant we play at. There is no feedback and the harmonies are crisp and clean over the keyboard. Despite being right on top of our audience, the sound is not overpowering. I also give the Bose system some credit, but that's another review. Like most musicians if it ain't broke we can't afford to fix it. That being said, when my Schure finally dies, I will replace it with an N/D 967. Both good, but I like the EV better.

              I too have physical problems with the E/V N/D 967 microphones. I bought 6 of these several years ago. 4 have fallen apart. The rubber/plastic housing brakes away. Evidently E/V has been sold to Bosch out of Germany. I have emailed them and await their response. Otherwise these are very good microphones. The SuperHyperCardiod design does allow more volume through the mains and monitors. But the singer must get used to singing much closer to the microphone. I have used them for live recording and on stage with great success. They have huge rejection of all other noises except the singer. I would highly reccomend them if they didn't fall apart in a few years.

              great mic for loud bands

              By IanT

                Comments about Electro-Voice N/D967 Supercardioid Concert Vocal Microphone:

                I am a guitarist that sings. My voice is a baritone and can often get lost in the mix if the band is loud. This is my mic of choice for loud gigs where feedback rejection and ability to cut through is a challenge.

                The mic has a switch which makes it like two mics in one. I use the switch that gives the presence bump. With the switch in this pattern, the pickup field is very compact. This makes it so you have to basically keep your lips on the screen. If you stray even a couple of inches your voice starts cutting out. But the upside of the super tight field is that the feedback rejection is excellent. So I can run the PA hotter, which allows me to be heard.

                Also, there isn't much proximity bass boost when I touch my lips to the mic. When I use an SM58, the more pronounced bass boost can make my voice a little muddy when I get rigup on on it. And having to stay vigilant about having my lips on the screen has improved my mic technique, as I used to wander around and would get too far from the mic sometimes. Now I just stay on this thing and my tone is more consistent. The key is finding the right angle to place the mic so that you can steal a glance at the fretboard without having to take lips away from screen, or feel handicapped from looking, either.

                With the switch in the normal setting, the pickup field is much larger and feels more similar to an SM58. I don't use that setting.

                I dig the unique flat screen. It gives a nice target to feel with my lips and keeps me on axis. When I touch my lips against a round screen, it's a little more ambiguous as to where the target is so I can wander off axis.

                I own an SM58, SM57, Sennheiser 935, AKG C535eb (condenser), and have used Sennheiser 835 a bit. I also have some old EV mics that I've used in low volume situations, including RE50, 635 and RE55. This mic has far and away the best feedback rejection, so I'm very happy with it. If I am at low stage volume with good monitoring and phantom power than I'd prefer the AKGc535eb, but the difference isn't all that much.

                The mic feels solid. I own several vintage EV mics and they were all built to last. This one feels no different.

                As far as the tone goes, I like it. The Sennheiser 835 and 935 are a little too tinny sounding for my voice. The SM58 can be a little too muddy when I get right up on it. But really, that is cork sniffing. It's important to remember a mic won't make you sing better. Great singers sound great in any mic and nobody knows the difference. I would recommend not getting too caught up in selecting one mic's tone over another as all new mics are hi-fi sounding and get the job done, even the entry level mics like the PG48. The differences in tone are not really what the audience will appreciate about your perfomance. But they do need to hear you.

                So if you are having feedback issues that are keeping you from running your mic hot enough to be heard, this mic might be just what you need. I'm very happy with it and has ended my quest for a better live mic than the SM58.

                  I'm a singing drummer and I thought I would like the noise reduction around the sides and back, but after using it for a few gigs, I returned it and confirmed that the Shure Beta 58a Is better (to my ears) out front and in the monitors.
