Classic handheld interview microphone
- Omnidirectional polar pattern
- Dynamic element
- Incredibly robust and durable
- Linear frequency response
- Completely pop-free
- Four-stage pop and dust filter
- Effective internal shock absorber
The classic 635A live interview wired microphone is the most popular (ENG) electronic news gathering mic in the world. It delivers great sound and is known as “The Buchanan Hammer”—a nod to EV’s ancestral Michigan home—for its rugged durability. Also available in black (model: 635A/B).
The Electro-Voice 635A and 635A/B are designed for exacting professional applications such as film production, recording, broadcasting, and the more demanding PA applications. The high output level, and low sensitivity to mechanical shock, make the 635A and 635A/B excellent for interviews and for pass-around use in audiences. The 635A and 635A/B feature a diaphragm which permits very smooth response over a wide frequency range. The diaphragm withstands humidity and temperature extremes, corrosive effects of salt air, and severe mechanical shocks. It is practically indestructible with normal use. A four-stage pop and dust filter ensures a completely pop-free performance and virtually eliminates the need for an external windscreen during outdoor use. An internal shock absorber effectively reduces the pickup of cable and other noise generated by external contact.
Architects’ and Engineers’ Specifications:
The microphone shall be an Electro-Voice 635A or 635A/B. The microphone shall be an omnidirectional dynamic type with wide range response uniform from 80-13,000 Hz. It shall have a four-stage pop filter, and magnetic shield to prevent dust and magnetic particles from reaching the diaphragm. The impedance shall
be such that the microphone will match 50-, 150- and 250-ohm inputs. The line shall be balanced to ground and phased. The output level shall be -55 dB with 0 dB equaling 1.4 mV/Pascal. The magnetic circuit shall be a nonwelded circuit and employ Alnico V and magnetic iron. The case shall be made of steel. The microphone shall have a maximum diameter of 36 mm (1.41 in),
a length of 151 mm (5.94 in) and a weight of 170 grams (6 oz) The Electro-Voice 635A and 635A/B are specified.
