OVERVIEW

The Heritage fuses vintage style with high-tech performance.

The Heil Sound Heritage is a high-performance dynamic microphone designed for commercial broadcast, live sound reinforcement, and recording studios. The molded steel body is first copperplated, then chromeplated for a gorgeous finish that looks as if it were inches deep. A blue foam windscreen was molded to fit the inside of the microphone shell for an even cooler retro look.

The Heritage mic achieves its exceptional performance by using a special magnet structure and a 1-1/8" aluminum, low-mass voice coil assembly. Special attention has been paid to the phasing plug assembly, with equally placed ports that sense out-of-phase audio from behind the source. The result is a very linear cardioid pattern, a reduction of the proximity effect, and smooth articulation across the mic's response range.

The Heritage mic's dynamic element is mounted into a special sorbothane shockmount system for extremely low handling noise. This low handling noise and the lack of bass-boosting proximity effect makes the Heritage an ideal microphone for professional uses. The Heil Heritage has a 5/8" standard thread assembly and slide switch to turn the audio on and off.

A Great Affordable Mic

By JimmyBond

from Bristol, TN

Comments about Heil Sound Heritage Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone:

I use this for singing backup vocals and it does a fabulous job. Very sensitive, with the ability to alter volumes depending on distance without much issue with feedback. Also the vintage look is stunning and always gets noticed with compliments. I ordered 2 at the time and one has a faulty on/off switch which we haven't tried to repair; though I hear Heil has excellent support.

Great Deal on a great Mic

By Sandy Edwards

from Atlanta

Comments about Heil Sound Heritage Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone:

I got this mic a month ago and used it in rehearsal for vocals. The was really impressed with the response and ability to cut out outside noise. I e-mailed Bob Heil and he actually responded within a day. This uses the same internals as the PR20. This is a great looking mic at a super price. You do have to watch the pops because it is very sensitive. I will now try and do some recording with it.

This Mic Changed My Life

By Marcus Wallaby

from Chicago

Comments about Heil Sound Heritage Dynamic Cardioid Studio Microphone:

I was rather unimpressed with the Shure 55SH's sound quality but completly enamored of its looks, so I bought the Heil Heritage just to try it out. WOW. Smooth sound with a much larger sweet spot than the Shure, little or no EQ needed. Best sounding live mic I've ever used. Ever. Very distinctive too. I get so many compliments on the look & sound of this mic. I docked it a half point on quality because the the chrome is less than perfect in spots and the screws on the casing are rusted from my spit after 3 months.
