Excerpt: I bought this mic knowing it is a broadcast standard piece of gear. What I didn't get was that is exactly what the RE20 is all about. Broadcasting in a word. If you are doing broadcast or podcast work and have a less than ideal environment to record in, this is a must have piece of gear.
Excerpt: This thing is great. It holds its own on vocals...but use it more for instruments than anything else. Has a great sound off axis on a bass amp cone, and I always put it on the top head of a floor tom.
Excerpt: Best sounding dynamic mic for voice-over work. Warm sound, low noise & internal pop filter make for a robust and pleasing sound at a great price. Because it's a dynamic the output is low but it is very low noise so it is okay to goose the gain and still get clean sound
Ostensibly good for miking...
Excerpt: Industry standard for a reason. I used this mic when I was a DJ, so when I wanted to recreate a studio experience for my students to create air-check recordings, I stuck with what I knew worked.
Excerpt: I bought this to go with my current podcasting setup.Despite the RE-20 microphone's built-in pop filter, I sometimes still peak when using plosives. This pop filter gets' the job done in two ways: 1. It effectively creates a filter to reduce the impact of plosives.2.
Excerpt: Although this microphone got it's fame as a Broadcast/Voice Over mic the RE-20's construction makes it useful in many different applications. Bass Amps, Kick Drums, & Upright Bass's all are wonderful applications for this Mic.
Excerpt: We do voiceovers once a week for videos which appear on YouTube, so we needed a solid cardioid for under $. I am extremely happy with the RE20. Good bass and very warm sound. I used the same mic when I was in radio so I knew it was durable and great for a wide range of voices.
