Excellent dynamic microphone
Barnaby, 03.11.2014
Bought this dynamic mic only a couple of weeks ago, so initial impressions so far only. Its very well built, looks great, but I suggest buying the shock mount which sadly adds £100 to the price. Initial impression is of a very faithful and detailed sound. I suggest you read Paul White's review in Sound on Sound magazine June 2009. He rates it very highly.

This mic is truly awesome and the only bass drum mic I have used that needs basically no mixing. Pop it in the desired location, set the mixer knobs to neutral and the gain very low - you are good to go. Love i!

Grossartiges Mikrofon für Radio, Podcast oder allgemein Sprache!
18.02.2016
Ich habe lange gesucht und viel getestet (und gekauft), u.a. den Rode Procaster, ein AKG Kondensatormikrofon, ein Beyerdynamic DT-797 PV und das Shure SM7. Kein Gerät hat so überzeugt, wie das PR40 von Heil Sound (der Name muss wohl einfach ertragen werden) und verdient daher auch meine erste Bewertung hier auf thomann.de.

Auch für eher schwächere Vorverstärker (ich nutze als Audiointerface das Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 oder, etwas stärker, für mobile Settings das Zoom H6) ist dieses dynamische Mikro grossartig. Schöner, für Sprache perfekter, etwas wärmerer Klang ohne dumpf oder undifferenziert zu werden.
Für mich auch von Vorteil: das PR40 braucht etwas geringere Vorverstärkung als z.B. der RODE Procaster, der gain-Regler muss nicht voll aufgedreht werden, ergo weniger Rauschen, besserer Sound und perfekt ausgewogene Pegel. Im Gegensatz zu Kondensatormikrofonen spart man sich dann auch eine Menge Nachbearbeitung, Kompression, etc.

Für Podcast, Radio oder Sprachaufnahmen ist dieses Mikro uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen. Im Gegensatz zum Rode Procaster ist das PR40 jedoch etwas anfälliger für Poplaute. Deshalb: UNBEDINGT den Heil WSPR40 Windscreen Schaumstoffüberzug mitbestellen! Wer sich fragt, ob man so etwas überhaupt für Studio/indoor-Aufnahmen braucht: der WSPR40 ist eben nicht nur ein Windscreen sondern zugleich ein hervorragender Pop-Schutz. Man spart sich alles weitere und hat keine abenteuerlichen Klemmvorrichtungen am Mikrofonständer, die sich im Zweifel nicht mitbewegen können.

Le meilleur micro qui m'a été donné d'utiliser sur une grosse caisse. Bien sur il faut bien soigner l'emplacement, mais ce que j'aime c'est avant tout sa faculté à reproduire aussi le bas que les aigus ( transitoires extrémement rapides d'un kick) tout en préservant les mediums qui sont primordiaux dans mon style de musique.
