Since 1982, Heil Sound has been the leading manufacturer of communications
microphones and has a paramount understanding of phasing. When properly applied,
this knowledge creates outstanding cardioid patterns with unbelievable rear
rejection that removes unwanted sounds that try to enter from the off axis rear.
The pattern control of the Heil PR 20 is outstanding. This exceptional
performance is achieved by using the ideal combination of materials for the
large low mass diaphragm and a special mixture of neodymium, iron, and boron
that gives the PR 20 the strongest magnet structure available.
In addition to the special magnet structure, the PR 20 achieves its exceptional performance by using a large 1 1/8" low mass voice coil assembly. Special attention has been paid to the phasing plug assembly with equally placed ports that sense audio from behind, entering them out of phase. Thus, the PR 20 produces a very linear cardioid pattern and reduces the proximity effect while achieving perfect articulation. This new Heil element is usable in extreme high sound pressure levels and is immune to overload conditions making it perfect for vocal and live sound applications.
The PR 20 is supplied with a leatherette carrying bag, a mic clip and three metal wind screens (black, silver and gold).
Welcome to your new workhorse microphone.
