The Electro-Voice RE16 microphone is a Variable-D dynamic supercardioid mic designed for the most exacting professional use. The blast filter, an integral part of the EV RE16 mic, permits handheld and outdoor use without "P-pops" or excessive wind noise. Utilizing the Variable-D design the RE16 mic features a directional characteristic independent of frequency. The result is a microphone that generates little off-axis coloration while providing the greatest rejection of unwanted sounds. A supercardioid mic, the Electro-Voice RE16 provides its greatest rejection at 150 off-axis. (Supercardioid microphones provide greatest rejection in the horizontal plane when the microphone is tilted in its most natural position 30 from horizontal, as on a boom or floor stand.)
An easily operated "bass tilt" switch on the RE16 mic corrects spectrum balance for boom use and other longer-reach situations. A hum-bucking coil and screw-machined steel outer casing provides 25 dB of hum rejection. Hum pickup level is -125 dBm (re: .001 gauss field). Using the mechanical nesting concept of design, by means of which the internal transducer parts are nested one within another, the RE16 transducer is a nearly solid mechanical structure that is highly resistant to damage from mechanical shock. The Memraflex grille screen resists deformation. The exclusive nonmetallic Electro-Voice Acoustalloy diaphragm is virtually unaffected by extreme atmospheric conditions. A carefully designed steel outer case provides additional mechanical protection. The finish is non-reflecting fawn beige.

Comments about Electro-Voice RE16 Supercardioid Handheld Dynamic Microphone:
I have this mice for over 15 years now. I had to write this review just to let you know how good this mic is. It works well in any club show and I also was very much surprised when I used it for the lead vocalists live while that signal was being recorded on multitrack. This was the best mic I ever used in that situation that covers both live and recording at the same time with very impressive clean smooth results. I use it myself when I play small clubs as backup vocals while playing bass and it out sounds the 58 by a miles. I was pleased to see it here and I may go for another one soon. Now it's up there but like I mentioned, it does do the job very well.
