Electro-Voice RE 520 Condenser Supercardioid Vocal Microphone

The Electro-Voice RE 520 is a premium-grade, high-performance, condenser supercardioid vocal microphone. Designed to reveal the exceptional detail and vivid clarity synonymous with condenser elements, it elegantly delivers the lyrical finesse required for expressive vocal performances, while controlling off-axis sound from nearby sources.

Rich Sound

Furthermore, the RE 250’s sonic signature is detailed, full and vivid, with a warm and clear low end, a natural and present midrange, and an open, crisp and detailed high end.

Excellent Acoustic Isolation

The RE 520 super cardioid pattern provides excellent acoustic isolation. Maximum feedback rejection occurs when a stage monitor position is at either 225° or 125° offaxis to the element. This pattern also allows for a cleaner mix due to its rejection of off-axis sound. The multi-stage pop filter consists of two layers of dense foam separated by air, which attenuates wind velocity caused by breath and windblasts.

High-Pass Filter

Specifically, the high-pass filter on the RE 520 has two positions (see drawing). The flat position delivers the full frequency band pass of the capsule. Furthermore, the high-pass position attenuates frequencies below 150 Hz.

Internal Shock Mount

Also, the internal shock mount isolates the microphone element from vibration and guards against handling noise.
