The award-winning PR 20 with a simplified accessory set to save you money.

The dynamic Heil Sound PR 20 UT (Utility) microphone includes most of the award-winning features of Heil's PR 20 dynamic microphone. The high-level specifications and performance are the same as the PR 20 mic's, with a wide frequency range, and the ability to handle +140dB SPL. The PR 20 UT also offers -35dB of rear rejection that makes it a great microphone for a wide range of professional applications. There was no cutting corners on this Heil microphone-open a PR 20 UT and you'll see that you are getting a PR 20.

To help reduce the cost, Heil Sound simply pared down the packaging options. The PR 20 UT mic is equipped with a stainless mesh grille, a foam windscreen, and a mic clip in a vinyl zipper bag.

      Comments about Heil Sound PR-20UT Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

      I found the mic to provide much poorer gain before feedback characteristics than other mics I own. As others have mentioned, there doesn't appear to be ANY rear rejection, best rejection seemed to be from the side. Worst handling noise of any mic I've used. Admittedly it's the bottom end of their pro line, but I was expecting more after reading about it. Sound is ok, not spectactular, much like an sm58 -- definitely no better.

          Comments about Heil Sound PR-20UT Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          I bought this mic after reading an article about Heil. It said that this mic would not pick up sound from the rear -ie acoustic guitar being played by user. It picked up Everything in immediate area and caused consistant feedback issues. When guitarist sang the vocal was good but there was so much bleed over from area that it was more trouble then help. I was truly disappointed.

          Comments about Heil Sound PR-20UT Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          Having used the Pro 20 and Pro 40 I bought these for the lower price reading reviews that they sound as good as their higher priced models. They do indeed sound great, very clear and transparent. Just be advised that they have excessive handling noise....not good for handheld use or in a situation where stand adjustments are frequent. Would recommend spending the money for the higher pro version...which sounds awesome. These do as well, but very noisy when handled.

          Good value

          By Douglas Dickeson

          from Nebraska

          Comments about Heil Sound PR-20UT Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          I've been using either an SM58 or SM58 Beta for a long time, and decided to try the Heil PR-20 after hearing an interview with Bob Heil. The things that interested me were the greater rear rejection and increased definition. I tried this mic on a gig recently, and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't an earth-shaking difference, but sounded close enough to an SM58 to make it a viable substitute.
          I opted for the "Utility" version of the mic, since I already own lots of others. It came with a bag, clip, and windscreen.
          Seems to be a fairly rugged item, but I won't be pounding nails with it like I do my SM58's.
          Since I'm comparing it to an SM58 and it's pretty much the same thing, I give it a 5- being perfectly average in price.

          Smooth and Clear!

          By CW--4M0X

          from St. Augustine, Florida, USA

          Comments about Heil Sound PR-20UT Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          What a great deal on a Heil mic! It is smooth, rich and clear sounding. I'm very pleased so far. I've used an SM58 for years on stage and this mic is an even better match for my voice (female alto/soprano voice). Handling noise is slightly more than I would want in a hand held mic, but I am using this fixed on a stand. It also definitely sounds surprisingly nice on acoustic guitar and mandolin.
