Electro-Voice has been in the microphone game for a long time - since 1930, in fact. Focused on making premium boutique microphones from day one, Electro-Voice grew over the decades, and in 1963 the company was honored with the first Academy Award ever presented for an audio device in recognition of their 642 Cardiline shotgun microphone. The Oscar win helped push Electo-Voice to keep on raising the bar, and today their microphones are easily among the best anywhere. To make it easier to find the mic that's right for your needs, EV has helpfully divided their products up into a few purpose-specific categories. One of these is the PL series, which stands for Professional Live. These stage-oriented microphones are designed for live amplification, with options like the PL37 and PL80 for vocals or the PL33 and PL35 mics for drums. Another Electro-Voice lineup, the N/DYM series, is also aimed at live performances. These microphones are distinguished by their neodymium magnets, which deliver outstanding clarity while also making for a mic that's a bit lighter and easier to handle. Like the PL series, N/DYM microphones cater to every musician on the stage with models like the N/D468 and N/D868 for instruments, and a range of different vocal mics.
For demanding professional applications, consider the high-end Electro-Voice RE series. These microphones are EV's most premium and most versatile lineup, with products for any application. You'll find a range of handheld and stand-mount condensers in the RE line, such as the RE410 and RE510, as well as some dynamic mics like the omnidirectional RE50/B and the high-output RE50N/D-B interview microphone. For studios, broadcasters and other installed uses, there are the legendary RE20, hanging RE90H and RE92H and the versatile RE320, which is also an outstanding mic for vocals and instruments onstage or in the studio.
If you're looking for something practical that can take on any microphone task, especially when you need a large number of active mics, take a look at the Cobalt Co4 and Co7. These all-purpose mics work well with instruments and vocals in diverse settings, making EV quality accessible to anyone. They're also available in a wide variety of packages with anywhere from one to six microphones, so they make it easy to get complete venue coverage in one simple bundle.
Ever since their low-key beginnings in the turmoil of the 1930s, Electro-Voice Microphones have been setting a high standard for audio performance. Today's EV mics have something to offer for any application, whether it's a community center outfitting their PA system with Cobalt microphones or a pro recording studio capturing perfectly lifelike sound with the RE series.
