The top choice for voice
Building on a long legacy of outstanding performance and reliability, Electro-Voice RE20 has earned its place at the top of the expanding broadcast industry.

Why Variable-D matters
In addition to merely capturing sound, directional microphones have a byproduct called proximity effect, which causes your voice to become unnaturally bass-heavy when speaking close to the mic and to sound significantly thinner when you move farther away. Unlike other directional mics, RE20 minimizes those dramatic shifts, allowing you to move freely around the mic with the confidence that your vocal tone will remain even and true. On the rear side of the diaphragm there is a perforated pipe (interference duct) with precise sonic slots at set distances. The duct provides maximum damping that is completely uncolored and undistorted at 180° off-axis, ensuring the same frequency response as if the source was nearly on-axis. This characteristic is particularly beneficial when the performer moves around while addressing the microphone, which is why radio announcers and DJs have chosen RE20 for decades.

Great for guitar amps and kick drums, too
An added benefit of the Variable-D technology's low-frequency stabilization is the resulting personality of the low-frequency content. Variable-D microphones produce a tight low-end that is unmatched by any other microphone technology, and this is why RE20 is revered not only as the number-one announcer's mic, but also as the go-to mic for capturing kick drums, low-frequency instruments and guitar amplifiers.
