A Broadcast Studio industry standard

Since its debut in 1968, the Electro-Voice RE20 is easily the single, most-heard radio host’s microphone of all time, delivering a vocal tone that has become synonymous with the sound of the modern FM radio personality. A true industry standard and firm favorite of broadcasters and sound engineers worldwide for its smooth and linear characteristics on voice, the RE20’s reputation is that of a
“must-have” mic for any studio. Central to RE20’s popularity is Electro-Voice’s exclusive Variable-D™ technology for minimizing proximity effect tonal shifts, allowing the host to move freely around the mic without ever sounding “off-mic”.

The RE20's popularity also extends into music production as a premium grade instrument microphone. Its Variable-D™ design and heavy-duty internal pop filter excel for close-in voice work, while an internal element shock-mount reduces vibration-induced noise.

Immune to Proximity Effect

The bass-boosting proximity effect common to most directional microphones when used close to the sound source, is eliminated in the RE20. This is accomplished via the application of the EV-exclusive Variable-D technology. By controlling the effect of microphone proximity, the RE20 can be located very close to sound sources without a loss in clarity or definition making the RE20 ideal for tight vocals and challenging instruments. It can be used inside bass drums, on acoustic guitars, and is found in voice booths and broadcasting studios everywhere.
