Overview

The Heil Sound PL-2T overhead boom uses a system of perfectly balanced internal springs rather than the unsightly, mechanically unstable outboard springs used on booms of much lesser quality. Handles microphones up to 3-1/2 pounds in weight.

Remove the top and back plates to thread the mic cable inside the boom with ease. No more cable connectors to remove and replace! Ships with a standard C-clamp mount.

The PL-2 accepts industry standard 5/8" threaded mic clips or shockmounts. The chrome threaded stem can be locked into place depending upon the exact type of microphone or shockmount.

Need to mount the PL-2T permanently to a desk or table? See the FL-2 Permanent Flange Mount (sold separately).

This boom is the bomb!

By James Bryant

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

If you're looking for a quiet boom that holds any position, this is the one you need. I've had mine for over a year now, and it has stood up admirably to my 'gentle ministrations', that is to say, I abuse booms. I just took it off a tilted table and moved it to a new desk. It is not the worse for wear and now stands up straight even though it has been leaning to the side for a year with a heavy mic on it. The ability to hide the cord inside the structure is a plus, making your setup look that much cleaner. All in all, I give it a 10 out of 5. It is expensive, but it stands up to abuse and stays quiet as a mouse.

This boom rocks

By DJ Jay

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

I bought this boom on a whim and am very impressed with the construction and ease of use. The only drawback (if you can call it that) is I had to use scotch tape to hold the mic wire covers on. No big deal. If you are looking for a boom, buy this one.

Wel made and perfect

By Jon

from Denver, CO

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

I use this at my desk to record online classes. It is a well made product. Easy to install, firs great, swings out of the way and since it hold the mic high it helps with my sibilance issues - works perfect.

Wonderful!

By Crey Jackson

from Alabama

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

Whisper quiet operation, which is needed in a broadcast environment. The ability to hide cables not only offers a clean look, but also assists in cable management. This is one boom that I would buy again and again. That being said, I could only offer one area for improvement. The self-sticking pads sent with the product do not stand up to any real use. The adhesive tends to slide.

Super stand!

By Zane Khandr

from Tempe, AZ

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

I was really worried that this stand would be a pain to use. I thought you had to adjust the bolts every time you wanted to move it. Since I use my desk for everything, having the mic right where it should be for a podcast can be pain so I wanted something that could just push out of the way. This stand is GREAT. Completely silent, looks fantastic, pushes out of the way for easy storage and I love how balanced it is. A great value! I hope to get another one really soon.

Great space saver!

By Nathan Manley

from NYC

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

We use this boom in our small vocal recording booth to save floor space... it's a great way to get a flexible mic placement for people of different heights. So far the springs seem to hold well, and the ability to hide the cord in the boom gives a very clean look. Well worth the price!

Great product requires a shock mount

By Jeff

from El Cerrito, CA

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

I purchased this product for podcasting that I am doing from a home studio. I wanted to be able to sit comfortably in a variety of positions. This was the only reasonably priced mic stand that I found that offered easy adjustment and positioning for my environment. Upon receiving the product, I was immediately impressed. The stand is well-built. The springs are very strong which is great for a large diaphragm microphone. I'm using a smaller microphone so the included weight was necessary. I also liked the "topless" feature in which the mic cable could be routed inside the arms making for a clean installation. There were only two minor issues with the stand. First, unlike my "traditional" table stand, this stand transmitted every single vibration from the table to which it was mounted. This included the small fan on my laptop. Using a shock mount is essential and, I am happy to report, eliminated all the noise. The second issue is that the clamp is a little undersized considering the reach of the stand. All in all, this is a great product and I would happily recommend it.

Perfect

By Dave Keith

from Shellsburg, IA

Comments about Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom:

I bought this boom based on the reviews it had received and it's lived up to them perfectly. Easy to maneuver, stays right where you put it, great reach, everything I had hoped for. If you're looking for a boom the hidden cords and springs in this make it a clean and easy to use tool don't hesitate at all, and GC's price is outstanding.

    I purchased this for my home recording studio (I prepare voiceovers for a local radio station). Glad I opted for the higher quality boom from Heil. Paired it with my PR-40. Great product!

      Holds a Neumann TLM 49 rock steady. Love that there are no external springs and the covered cable trough makes the installation look tidy. Very happy with it.
