The Electro-Voice RE50 and RE50/B are specially shock-isolated, omnidirectional, dynamic microphones created for the most exacting professional applications. An advancement in shock-mounting techniques, they were designed particularly for hand-held broadcast and sound reinforcement use. All handling noises, clothing noises, and even cord shock have been isolated from the microphone element so that mechanical induced noise is greatly reduced. By use of a high-mass zinc internal acoustic chamber, shock-mounted within the machined aluminum outercasing, the RE50 and RE50/B offer a degree of isolation unprecedented in an omnidirectional dynamic microphone.
The internal transducer uses a mechanical nesting concept all its own. Each part is nested inside another so that the transducer (head assembly) is nearly a solid structure. It is highly resistant to damage from shock. The diaphragm is unaffected by temperature extremes and atmospheric conditions. A carefully designed integral windscreen and blast filter provides excellent protection fromwind noise, excessive sibilance, and annoying "p-popping". The RE50 and RESO/B have a grille that bounces back to retain its shape. A four-stage pop filter prevents dust and magnetic particles from reaching the diaphragm. The RE50/B's attractive, nonreflecting, semi-gloss black finish is ideal for on-camera use.
