Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The RE200 is a compact FET condenser mic with an EQ curve described as a “Continuous Presence Rise.”

The response begins rolling off at 300Hz, remains relatively flat through 3kHz, and exhibits two sharp peaks (+10–12dB) at 5kHz and 8kHz. The HF response falls sharply above about 13kHz.

The attenuated LF response allows the microphone to be positioned close to a sound source without fear of overwhelming LF buildup due to proximity effect. EV presents the mic as a suitable choice for drum overheads, high-hat, acoustic guitar, and strings.

The mic has a true condenser capsule, not an electret as would be more usual in a mic that can be powered by 12V. Note that the mic’s circuitry includes a DC-DC converter that maintains a stable charge on the capsule, regardless of powering voltage. This allows the mic’s performance to be consistent regardless of the power supply.

Electro-Voice

The diaphragm is ultra-thin, gold-laminated, environmentally stabilized and ultra-low in mass. The electrode is a precision-cut, single piece, ceramic disc layered with gold.

The mic ships with a clip (p/n 311), a vinyl storage pouch, and a foam windscreen.
