The Electro-Voice RE-320: A Remake of a MarvelThe Electro-Voice RE-320 dynamic microphone is the reincarnation of EV's famed RE-20 broadcast mic. This dynamic companion will spruce up your recording sessions by bringing an iconic sound right to your studio. You can track drums, guitars, vocals, horns, bass, and other instruments utilizing a two-position "Dual Personality" frequency response switch to get the right frequency capture for the right instrument. This mic is built with a durable steel outer casing and will deliver clean and pristine audio capture, session after session.
Quiet as a MouseTracking guitars or vocals can be a headache if you can't get a quiet capture. Your Electro-Voice RE-320 is built using an integrated humbucking coil to knock out any electromagnetic field interference coming from another source close to the microphone. Variable-D proximity control curtails off axis tonal shifts, and a neodymium magnet structure produces a faster transient response and a more detailed capture of those higher frequencies.
Split Personality: The Right EQ for the Right InstrumentA helpful feature right at the bottom of your EV RE-320 is a two-position "Dual Personality" frequency response switch for two different performance EQ curves. The general instrument use setting utilizes a 45 Hz to 18 kHz frequency response for recording vocals, guitar, bass, horns, viola, and a whole host of other instruments. The RE-320's kick drum setting kicks the frequency response down to 30 Hz for more low end capture.
Wide Reach of ApplicationsThis dynamic microphone is great for the studio, but it also works well in other applications. Like its bigger brother, your Electro-Voice RE-320 is suitable for broadcast settings, recording choirs in churches, voiceover sessions, sporting events, and more. Every recording engineer needs a solid arsenal of dynamic microphones, and the RE-320 will keep your recording sessions clean and pristine.

Electro-Voice RE320 Dynamic MicThe Electro-Voice RE320 is a professional quality dynamic microphone designed specifically for recording and sound reinforcement applications requiring extremely low noise and the highest level of predictable tonal and transient response. Ideal for capturing vocal and instrument sources, the RE320 delivers unparalleled detail, dynamic content, and natural tone.
Variable D is Electro-Voice's exclusive solution to the tonal changes associated with the proximity effect found in other directional microphones. Providing balanced and uniform frequency response up to 180* off-axis, the result is always stable and linear tonal performance -- even when the sound source is moving around the mic. Ideal for capturing the critical details of voice, amplified, and acoustic instruments, Variable-D capsules deliver impeccably smooth and natural tone on virtually any sound source.
Utilizing the same humbucking coil technology found in the Electro-Voice RE20 and RE27N/D to arrest electro-magnetic field interference introduced by sources close "to the microphone", the Electro-Voice RE320 produces an ultra-quiet signal path free from the hum and buzz found in other dynamic microphones.
The Electro-Voice RE320 incorporates a two-position "Dual Personality" frequency response switch which allows engagement of two vastly different performance curves.
Features:- Designed for Broadcast, Commercial Sound/Life Safety, Concert Sound, House of Worship, Performance & Sports Venues, Pro Music, Studio, and other applications
- Variable-D proximity control minimizes positional and off-axis tonal shifts
- Integrated hum-bucking coil and integral pop filters provide virtually noiseless performance
- Neodymium magnet structure creates higher output with faster transient response and greater high-frequency detail
- Unique "Dual Personality" switch creates two mics in one
- Extremely durable build, fit and finish
zZounds Expert Review
Everyone's got their favorite guitar microphone, and more often than not, keeping it simple has yielded award-winning results. In my opinion, a solid dynamic microphone is your best friend when tracking guitars. Having tried the "best" and the "rest," I first tried the RE-320 on bass cabs, kick drum and vocals, in the tradition of its big brother, the world-renowned RE-20. After playing with my mixes and getting a good feel for where this microphone excels, I decided to throw it in front of some guitar cabinets to catch some scorching hot leads -- and it's quickly become my go-to. The RE-320 absolutely holds down a tight low-end voice with the ability to switch to a different voice to attenuate your low end. I have found this low scoop setting to be a great candidate for guitar cabinets and combos. Its larger diaphragm captures right where a 6-string's voice lies, with great resolution compared to some of the "classic" lower-priced dynamics. A well-pronounced top-end, tough-as-nails bu
