Overview

The Electro-Voice N/D478 is a dynamic cardioid microphone with acoustic response that is optimal in live sound or studio environments. The new "vocally optimized bass" or VOB technology provides you with reduced resonant distortion at low frequencies. Critical damping of the low frequency resonant peak results in a microphone that replaces the "muddiness" found in competitive models with greater warmth and increased clarity. The result is an exceptional performing instrument microphone with clean, clear, consistent sound that "cuts through the mix."

Features
  • VOB technology provides tailored bass response for controlled "proximity effect" and exceptional vocal clarity
  • Cardioid pattern for superior feedback rejection and acoustic isolation
  • Excellent choice for micing acoustical or electrical instruments whether in a live sound or studio environment
  • Neodymium based magnet structure provides greater sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio
  • Warm Grip handle for more comfortable feel and lower handling noise

Great Mic

By oldcave

from Albuquerque, NM

N/D478 is a great little mic. I've owned my pair for about six months now. They do everything advertised and more. Similar in spec and price to SM57, i5. If you're looking for a good all-purpose dynamic mic in this price range, check out the N/D478. Recordings of drums, percussion, horns, lifelike and detailed. I have also used them on acoustic guitar, voice, found objects with very pleasant results (just keep in mind the importance mic placement and what you're asking it to do). I've been a fan of EV products since '78. Very good construction, rugged, reliable, and you usually get more than your money's worth.
