Electro Voice RE27N/D Microphone
The Electro Voice RE27N/D Microphone is a high-performance broadcast microphone offering superb resolution and depth making it a favorite of recording studios and live sound engineers around the world.
The Electro Voice RE27N/D Microphone is a professional, dynamic cardioid microphone designed for broadcast, recording and sound reinforcement applications. Much like the RE20, the Electro Voice RE27N/D is a standard in radio and television, but remains a proven tool in the recording studio as well. Considered an improvement on the RE20, the Electro Voice 27N/D features a Neodymium based magnet which greatly improves sensitivity, frequency response and SPL handling, resulting in higher gain (up to 6dB more output) while keeping the noise floor low. In addition, a highly effective hum-bucking coil is used to attenuate hum from lighting, bad grounds and other sources.
Due to it's variable D design, the Electro Voice RE27N/D Microphone is virtually free of bass-boosting "proximity effect" when used close. The result is smooth, even frequency response no matter the proximity and position of the speaker. Because of it's dynamic element, the Electro Voice RE27N/D also features excellent transient (peak) response.
In addition the Electro Voice RE27N/D Microphone features an internal blast filter, completely covering every opening. Singers and talkers can literally touch the microphone with their lips without worry of "pops" or excessive sibilance. The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes room ambiance and off-axis noise. The greatest attenuation occurs at 180 degrees, directly behind the microphone.

While the RE27 may have the same body as the classic RE20 the similarity ends there. EV reworked everything inside this microphone; diaphragm, voicecoil, magnet, variable-D porting system, and added a high frequency reflection dome and frequency controls. And the 6dB higher output eliminates the need for inline pres. While it is a great broadcast/podcast mic it's a shame that's how it's being marketed today. I have a large collection of high-end condensers and sometimes the RE27 is the perfect mic for the job. Being a long time lover of the RE20 the RE27 sounded very bright out of the box. But fear not! One flip of the -3 dB high shelf cut switch and it's right where I always had to EQ the RE20 up to. It's much closer to a done deal straight out of the mic. And sometimes the out of the box sparkling high-end is just what the doctor ordered. In today's world of in your face vocals this mic can sometimes out perform high-end condensers due to the lack of a bloated proximity effect and hyper-exaggerated micro-details. And the large diaphragm offers a wonderful working area. No more take 27 because you again leaned 3 nanometers left/right/up/down/in/out. And though I haven't tested this back to back yet I'm pretty sure the 27 picks up less room sound. I assume that's why they reworked the ports. I think folks would be blown away or simply not believe that the vocals they hear in a mix were recorded on a dynamic. Kudos to EV.
