I love EV Microphones, this was my latest Ev mic of a small collection I have dating back to 1974 yep mic nerd.
The thing is with EV they have never lost quality every mic they design is awesome. The PL80a is no exception with its a rugged well built chassis with exceptional sound response,the lows are warm and the highs cut right through the mix,
It is a very clear sounding microphone that picks up every little nuance of the voice, I impersonate many male singers to a very high quality and I need a mic that accurately gives me what I put into the mic plus a few cheats to get that across this mic performs I love it and it looks so professional on stage and on photographs.
I prefer Ev to other well known mic company's and I do own most of the Industry standards but for a dynamic mic you can't go wrong with this
