Skip to bottom for tl;dr

So a little backstory first. So I used to gig quite often in high school with both an original band (progressive rock/indie) and a cover band (Rock/Funk). I eventually got a hold of a Mackie Onyx mixer w/ firewire (unbeatable for it's price, seriously) and started recording with it. I was by no means a pro audio engineer, but I prided myself on some decent mixing abilities. I had an array of sm57/58's, a couple of Studio Projects B1 condensers (unbelievable for the price, check youtube for sound demos), a Beta 58, and this mic (usually used for our lead singer live -this is a given, as it is an excellent vocal mic- and I think I used it for bass some as well). So, for a hobbyist, I was set up pretty darn well, except for one issue. I was never completely satisfied with the kick drum sound in my recordings. It seemed impossible.

Fast forward to about a month ago. One of my old high school buddies was now doing an apprenticeship as a sound engineer in a pro studio in Philadelphia and I was going to school for Computer/Electrical Engineering. He wanted to start jamming/gigging again for fun and possibly some extra income as well. So, I broke out the old mixer to hack around with some recordings. I had tried every microphone on my kick drum except this one, so I figured what the heck, might as well try it. I also made a subkick microphone out of an old car sub and some resistors I took out of the lab to see if this could fix my problem. Well, the subkick project went quite well, but I was absolutely shocked at the kick drum sound I was getting from this mic. It sounded verysimilar to the highly regarded and more expensive Audix D6. So out of curiosity, I checked out it's frequency response curve and compared it to the D6. Not surprisingly (but still shockingly), in close miking, this phenomenal microphone had a very similar frequency response curve to the D6 and was able to handle slightly less, but very similar sound pressure levels (a necessity for kick drums, as they are LOUD up close. I had finally solved my kick drum woes! Punchy, with no distortion, and it could pick up the low frequencies needed for kick drums. I need to pick up another one or go back to the Beta 58 for miked gigs!

Too Long; Didn't Read: Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these babies. They are not only one of the best vocal mics you can buy, but also sound unbelievably similar to an Audix D6 and can handle high sound pressure levels.

Warning: while they can handle high SPL's, if you tend to beat the crap out of your bass drums (I mean REALLY crush the drum), I can't say with absolute certainty that this mic will not distort. However I tend to play really hard, and it has worked beautifully for me thus far. So, I would say this microphone should be more than fine for the vast majority of drummers. It can't be beat in it's price, and I really cannot say that this mike has any flaws at all, except for maybe an on/off switch? Who cares, nobody uses those anyway.
It comes quite close to perfection. Everyone but the most picky sound engineers or vocalists (and even those guys really) will find no microphone that they can say are better (although some may prefer another mic). Some may prefer other microphones to this one simply because of the way in which they prefer to mix. But in my humble opinion, this microphone simply outclasses every microphone I have ever heard in it's price range. It rivals and often surpasses MUCH more expensive microphones).

Even if you tend prefer another microphone (which is totally understandable if you just like the reputation of quality and durability for something like a Shure), you really should add one of these to your collection. While I have heard nothing about it's durability, I have used this mic for 7 years and have yet to have even a minor problem. The sound quality speaks for itself.

If you are looking for your first mike for either recording or live, you simply can't go wrong with this one. It is highly versatile, and is totally worth the extra few bucks over slightly cheaper mics. It can produce a high quality sound from virtually any instrument (from vocals/guitars to kick drums and basses). It absolutely demolishes Shure's similarly priced mikes at lower frequencies and I like it better for vocals, but Shure products are the standard for a reason.
Slightly more expensive than say a Shure SM58, but the price difference is negligible given this microphone's superior all-around versatility. I've never tried to hammer a stage together with one of these, but I would bet a lot of money that it could be done quite easily.

NOTE: please do not try to hammer a stage together with one of these, I was only making a point. You are solely responsible for any damages that are done to this microphone, and agree to not sue me if you break it (haha).

Well, you never know till you plug it into a PA. But as far as Yamaha and Peavey systems go,I would say get the low end AKG or Shure 58. This is NOT louder, but does has a different EQ, and this being boosted in the mid-highs seem to make it sound way to bright,also distorted, and then you have to lower the volume to avoid feedback. As a live mic, i was very disappointed. I will stick it in my closet to try as a recording mic.

Too Good for it's own good

By Michael Sharp

Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

I used this model in the early 90s on the front vocal line with a band that was accustomed to the n/d767s. This is not a microphone to just spring on a vocalist that is used to the pickup pattern of a 58. (Recently a comp n/d767 showed up at work and has allowed me to revisit the model.) This is really one great sounding, rugged microphone - true. On lead vocalists I think it has fantastic clarity and a natural sound. Downside: the pickup pattern is so tight, that if you use it on a backing singer that tends to look down at their guitar neck a lot, their vocal levels are in and out with their head movements. Vocalists that hold the mic, and have trained themselves to move off axis/pull away depending on how much air they are pushing, need to make a big adjustment. (think of being handed an instrument with a different scale neck) If you're dealing with a singer that is right on top of the mic all night, you'll find yourself using more compression than usual due to the extremely fast transient response time of the element. So much compression in fact, that sometimes the vocal mic doubles as a drum overhead. Not good. Back to an upside: Because the n/d767 has such a nice high end response, it's a great for tight in on hi-hat. Summary: If you are a vocalist looking for a high value, rugged personal microphone, this is it. If you are a fledgling audio company looking for primary vocal microphones, do not limit yourself to these.

I researched 10 Mics before I settled on this one.

By Kova

Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

Overall, I'll start by saying that I tried 10 Mics before I settled on this one. I've been singing professionally for over 15 years and have performed in all types of places from small coffee shops to 3000 seat venues. I was using a Beta58 for most of my career up until now. I wanted a change and started looking to see what else is out there. I'm really glad I did because after I tested a bunch of other Mic's, the Beta58 came in dead last in sound quality. My favorite thing about the 767 is how it sounds "live" compared to everything else. It sounds very "present" verses the other Mic's sounding to polished and sterile. Non of the other Mic's have the "life" the EV gives you. It's also very warm and rich and I could hear details in my voice I never heard before. Especially when singing soft passages of a song. Another characteristic where other Mic's fell short. If you have a strong voice (like I do), this is your Mic. If you have a thin, weak voice then I highly recommend the Heil PR35 which is also sold by Musicians Friend. The PR35 is the highest amount of gain I've ever heard, but doesn't have the warmth of the 767 which is the only reason I didn't go with the Heil PR35. However, if you're on a budget, the Heil PR35 will cost you more than double verses the 767. So if you want something inbetween, my 3rd favorite Mic is the Sennheiser 835. The best description for the 835 is that it's very, very smooth. To smooth for my tastes and that's another reason I picked the 767. In my humble opinion, you really can't go wrong with the 767 and it sounds far better than a Shure Beta58 which I'm mentioning because it's the most commonly used Mic.

My last bit of advice is to try 2 or 3 EV 767's at the same time. My ears are super picky and I could hear the slight variances between all 3 and then picked the one that sounded best to me.
The features of this Mic are pretty straightforward. Plug it in and start singing (or screaming if that's your thing). The only "feature" I can comment on is what EV calls VOB which increases bass as you get closer to the Mic. I like this feature but all Mics get bassier as you get closer to them.
The quality of if the Mic is "so far, so good". I hope it stays that way. It's my first EV Mic so I hope it lasts for years and years. It feels very solid in my hand and has excellent "handling noise".
The value of this Mic is exceptional. Out of everything else I tried, this gave me the most bang for my buck. Be a smart shopper and shop around. You may be surprised what prices you'll find on this Mic.

    Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

    Excellent vocal reproduction. Huge proximity effect. Others have commented, and rightly, that this is not a mic for the inexperienced. The way I hear it, it has 3 levels of "hotness". You can yell at it from a foot away and it is true to every nuance and pretty hot by any standard. About 3 inches away you can drive it with much less force. If you get right on top of it, like closer than an inch, it effectively doubles the volume.

    That's why people say it's not for the inexperienced; you must have good mic technique to get the most out of this mic. If you adjust your personal volume to match its 3 levels, you will get really great vocal reproduction. If you are sloppy, it will translate into wildly varying levels.

    If the material requires you to scream and whisper, and you don't have someone babysitting your level, you will find this mic very useful.

    If you are accustomed to an SM-58, this mic will take some getting used to. It's much hotter. Also more clear in my opinion. Its proximity effect is more pronounced and starts a bit further out. Kind of like a double proximity effect.

    I haven't had this one long enough to comment on its durability, but I have used EV mics in the past and found them to be pretty tough.

    I've used lots of different vocal mics, and I haven't found any I like better for live performance.

    Super Bang For The Buck!

    By Steve-9LEOw

    from Minnesota

    Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

    This mic feels good in the hand and sounds wonderful. Vocal clarity seems transparent and easy on the ears, even for recording. Acoustic guitar sounds pretty good through it even though it is a vocal dynamic. Proximity effect is easy to handle. Not as pronounced as some others in the price range. Because it has good feedback rejection it works well as a podium mic where the speaker is further from it than on stage. But, up close to the lips it is intimate and accurate without excessive sibilance or plosives. Get one.

    Incredible vocal sound at a great price

    By Tuck

    from Lake Tahoe, CA

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

    I tested this mic in a good acoustic setting side by side with the following mics:
    Shure Beta 58A
    Sennheiser 935
    My 9-yr-old EV N/D757
    Shure Beta 87C

    The Sennheiser beat out the Beta 58A easily, but was not quite as smooth and rich as my old EV 757. The Shure Beta 87C and EV N/D767 were very close; the Shure sounded slightly cleaner, the EV a little richer and smoother. Thius is where personal preference come sin - or your pocketbook; the Shure is twice the price.
    What features do you need on a mic? Just to make your voice sound great, right?
    I have used an EV N/D757 for 9 years without a single problem; people compliment me constantly on my voice. Yet the N/D767 sounds considerably better. Definitely worth the expense to replace the old with the new.
    Unless you're willing to get into the $300 range, this is the best vocal mic out there.

      I did an in-store side by side comparison with every vocal mic in the store from the cheapest to 3 times what these cost and this mic beat them all! This mic had more gain, and clearity than all the others. The bass response is so big and full but without losing any clearity plus you cant hardly make it feed back. Simply the Best Mic in the store at any price hands down. So I bought 3 and took them out last weekend and WOW!. Our vocals were clearer than ever and our monitors were louder than ever and NO feedback. This is EV's version of the Beta for much, much less and IMO these are better than Beta's. If your needing a mic or mics for your show dont pass these up! Great Mic. Buy these now, you will not be disappointed.

      Do a little live shopping to prove it to your ears and then get it here for the best price.
      I had used a Shure Beta 58 for 10 years, thought it would be a good time to update my mic to work with the newer PA technology. I was real hot on the Heil PR 35 until I sang thru the EV. Same punch and clarity for a lot less.

        Was singing Friends in low places in a key that was to low ,so when I got to the low part, my Shure sm58 would not pick up the vocals because there was not enough pressure in my voice for the mic to pick it up. Then I got my e/v 757 and it will pick up a soft whisper. It was so good that 3 more people in the band bought them. I've been using mine for 20 years now. Love it. Nuff said.

          I was so pleased with the 767a, I bought another as a back up. I was a dedicated "Shure" man for years and they are incredibly durable and very dependable microphones, but for the money,this is the best microphone you will ever own. It has the clarity and response of a Condenser without the pitfalls of that format. The EV VOB technology lets you get up real close and sing. Would be suitable for soft as well as heavier music; it is very forgiving if you "eat the mic."

          Will it hold up over time, will it be as rugged, as road worthy as a Shure mic? Time will tell.
