  • Model Number: Electro-Voice

Product Description

The PL84 features a true condenser element and a tighter than usual cardioid pattern. While a touch hotter in output than the dynamic vocal mics in the PL series, the 141dB max SPL rating is amazing for all types of vocals! In critical listening tests, the PL84 exhibits the best detail in the presence band, while still looking and handling like a normal dynamic microphone. The PL84 is your diva microphone but without the diva price tag.

By JeffH on September 20, 2012
I replaced my EV N/D 767a dynamic mic with this PL84 after comparing it directly to a Shure Beta 58, EV PL80a, SHURE SM58, EV N/D 167a, and of coarse the EV N/D 767a... the PL84 out performed every single one of them. I am very satisfied with this mic and actually ended up purchasing another one after hearing its' quality. I lead worship at our church, which has a fairly large stage, but I am still standing directly in front of the drums by about 8'. When I ordered the mic I was a bit worried that the drums would cause my mic to feedback or I'd get a ton of bleed over from the cymbals, but I am happy to say I have none of those issues. This mic is a very hot mic and if you are usually in a tight situation where you are close to the drummer or an amp, you may want to go with the EV PL80a. Also, don't assume that you can simply show up with this mic and play without giving the Sound Engineer time to adjust EQ's and stage volume. This mic requires setup and should not be treated like an SM58. It also requires Phantom Power, not every console has it, so be sure you communicate with your Engineer or buy your own direct box with it's own 48v (check out the Presonus TubePre v2 ~ $130 or the ART Tube MP ~ $30) Just to give you an idea; I have a lower voice than a typical singer might have, which in some mics sounds muddy, but sounds very clear on this one. My sister sang through this Mic as well, she usually uses a beta58 which this PL84 out performed.

Side Note: I highly recommend a compressor with this mic
Also it got 4 stars not 5 because the Neumann KMS 105 is the king of stage mics, so out of respect I could only give the PL84 4 stars.

Great Mic! NOTE: Requires Phantom Power, and is a very powerful mic, which usually means two things, singers love them and amateur sound guys hate them (Feedback).
