Let's talk about those cheaper ones, shall we? The cheaper ones are mostly copies of each other. The cheaper ones all have external springs, two 15" boom arm segments, and a cheap table bracket. Some come with the mic holder, some even come with an XLR cable threaded through. The ones that have no cable threaded through, a few offer cable ties for cord management (because you have to run your cord somewhere), and of those that offer cable ties, a few offer a nice hook and loop tape cable management solution.
This Heil boom has INTERNAL CABLE MANAGEMENT with an easy-to-remove track cover, stress relief covers over the corners so your cable doesn't pinch, INTERNAL SPRINGS, and amazing 20" boom arm segments! That extra 10" (5" extra per segment compared to the cheaper products) makes a HUGE difference in reach and mic placement.
This is perfect for heavy mics like the AT2020USB (which is what I use, plus a windscreen and shockmount) and the Blue Yeti (my backup mic, the AT2020USB is so much better for my voice). This Heil boom is much heavier duty, and can support much heavier mics with ease. The cheaper ones you really have to torque down the nuts at the joints to handle heavy mics and in the process you can damage the screws and handles. You'll have none of that issue with this boom.
So, back to my earlier statement. I bought this one and a cheapie one just to compare, but having them side by side, I ended up sending the cheaper one back.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
