Heil Sound debuted its PR-R, an omnidirectional microphone designed for ENG reporting.
It features a moving-coil dynamic element with an internal shock mount that reduces handling noise. The company promotes its foot-long extended handle length; non-glare, slim profile; and zinc die-cast body construction, which it says enables the mic to withstand physical and environmental conditions encountered during field production operations.
Frequency response is 50 Hz – 16.5 kHz, sensitivity is -68 dB and output impedance is 600 ohm balanced. Additional features include a high-output dynamic transducer, foam pop shield and extended frequency response with rising high end.
Heil Sound says the mic is in production. Price has yet to be set. Delivery is expected in August.
