Large diaphragm handheld considered a “first” for demanding on-air talent.
PR35 in use at the Super BowlDrawing on the technological advancements within the highly successful PR 30, Heil Sound has introduced the PR 35. Designed with the vocalist in mind, the PR 35 produces unparalleled natural articulate sound over a wide frequency range. The PR 35 features a large 1.5″ diameter dynamic element that is mounted on an internal shock mount.
New Heil Sound technology features a unique dual wound voice coil with a magnet structure of neodymium, iron and boron, which create a magnetic field ten times stronger than the traditional magnets of other microphones. When coupled with the large microphone diaphragm, the results are sonically stunning. Company founder Bob Heil comments, “I had requests from several well known broadcast production mixers for a version of the PR 30 that an announcer could use in a traditional handheld manner. We built up several and they instantly found use in high profile broadcast situations. ”
The PR 35 has a frequency response extending from 40 to 18,000 Hz and output level of -52.9 dB @ 1000 Hz. A two position roll-off switch is provided to help control unwanted low end. Its polar pattern is cardioid, and the microphone comes in a black steel frame and grill. All units are shipped with a Heil SM-5 mounting assembly and a hard shell attach style carrying case.
