Product Description

The Heil Sound PL-2T overhead boom uses a system of perfectly balanced internal springs rather than the unsightly, mechanically unstable outboard springs used on booms of much lesser quality. Handles microphones up to 3-1/2 pounds in weight. Remove the top and back plates to thread the mic cable inside the boom with ease. No more cable connectors to remove and replace! Ships with a standard C-clamp mount. The PL-2 accepts industry standard 5/8" threaded mic clips or shockmounts. The chrome threaded stem can be locked into place depending upon the exact type of microphone or shockmount. Counterweight included to accommodate lighter microphones. Need to mount the PL-2T permanently to a desk or table? See the FL-2 Permanent Flange Mount (sold separately).

Customer Reviews

This Heil product is well made and easy to use.
J. Baney
I use it for webcasts and for taking skype calls and I love pulling the mic over to me when I need it and then pushing it aside.
S. Kelsey
If you have the money and want a quality product that does the job you need it to - this one is awesome.

An item such as this seems as if it would be a luxury purchase for a non-professional, but I've found it to be a necessity in preparing my podcasts. My desk quickly gets filled with all the items and equipment for the cast -- mixer, interface, computer, notes, etc. -- and the PL2T relieves you of the worry of where to fit in a mic stand. Its precise placement and steadiness allows you to adjust the mic exactly as you need.j Then, when you don't need it, it simply swings to one side and keeps the mic out of the way for the next time.

So far I've used two different mics with it, both with fine results. The first mic required the use of the counterweight, which attached easily.

I'm giving this review less than 5 stars only because the plastic covers that fit over the cord channels tend to pop off, but that's no major concern.

Nice boom, BUT! one draw back for me maybe not for others.

I did not know when I ordered this boom the mounting post is fixed not hinged.

If you have to mount the boom on or right next to a wall and intend to push and pull the mic straight forward and back, please know the boom will not close flat against the wall. The design of this boom is such that the center top hinge must travel back over the mounting point to fully close. The wall prevents the center top hinge from going back over the mounting point so therefore the mic remains a full eighteen inches out from the wall.

Eighteen inches out from the wall over a thirty inch deep desk. Well guess what it gets in the way unless I push it way up over my head until I stand up anyway Then bonk. Yes I can swing it sideways then back but in (MY) case this needs a bit more space and two hands to operate it, then it blocks my notes and papers or removes them from the wall behind it.

I am going to have to have a custom mount made at the correct angle to allow the middle hinge point of the boom to go straight up when fully closed. This means I will not be able to swing the boom left or right horizontally anyway.

This is probably not a problem for most installations but for me it is.

The boom itself works great, is silent, and holds the mic solidly in place.

The boom just needs to have the ability to adjust the mounting posts angle, or provide a mounting solution that is adjustable.

A five star review would be given only if I did not have to make a mount.

I picked this up for use with a Shure SM7B, which screwed right in to the connector and seems to be perfectly weighted for this stand.

The wiring channels hide the mic cable nicely and help to make the overall setup look clean and professional. The boom swings silently out of the way when I'm not using it, and adjusts silently too.

It couldn't have worked more perfectly for my needs.

I went through 3 different microphone booms before finding and sticking with this model. The others were too flimsy, didn't stay and couldn't handle the heavy mic, a Heil PR781 I prefer to use.

The boom has a track for inserting your cable into. I was able to feed my line through the tracks and inside the final pivot joint for a very clean install. I'll post a picture so you can judge for yourself. I have noticed that due to the thickness of my cable if I move things around too much the track cover has popped off. To keep that from happening I placed a small black zip tie around the boom feed at each end to make sure the cover remains in place. I mount the boom behind 2-24" monitors which are mounted on the desk with this stand:Dual LCD Monitor Stand desk clamp holds up to 24" lcd monitors

To get the boom to adjust to the correct height (centered between my monitors both horizontally and vertically), I mounted the boom about a foot off of the surface of the desk using this mount: Heil Sound WM-1 Vertical Surface Mount for Heil Booms Attaching it to a shelf behind monitors. I found that the clamp the unit comes with doesn't clamp as tight as I would like; it flexes just a touch when tighthening and ends up not quite vertical even when secured on a perfectly flat desk. I tried feeding it through a cable feed hole (it fit into well) but didn't hold as nicely as I wanted, besides it was too low for my needs.

I use a PR-40 and love this boom. It has a clamp and easy to fasten to most desks or workspaces and the construction and balance seems to make it adjustable to anything...BUT The clamp appears to be made of cast aluminum and if you crank on the clamp, it will bend. It has been the only thing I do not like about the build but it also could be my desk setup.

I'm happy with this mic boom. It came with adapters enabling a couple of ways to mount it. I clamped it to the rear edge of my desk surface. It holds my heaviest Senni mics without sagging. I pull it into place to record, positioning it exactly where I want it. Then I push it aside so I can see the Mac screen and edit my recording in ProTools. If you're in a live studio environment, I can tell you there's no springing noise or creaking when I move the boom around. And I recovered the desk space I lost to the old, weighted mic stand.
