The RE-20 is the venerated holy grail of broadcasting. Creamy radio audio, retro 60s charm.
This mic gives a lot of freedom of movement. With my old Shure Beta 57a mic, I had to be right up on it to sound great. The sweet spot was the size of a plumb. That ended up making my back and neck tense doing a long live show. With the RE-20, the sweet spot is the size of a basketball. I can move all over and sound great. Will extend my life span! (Good for us cranky, creaky old guys. I turn 49 this week.) You can also talk more naturally with an RE-20, it doesn't require conscious or subconscious "mic technique" that other mics require to sound really good.
This mic is built like a tank. The RE-20 comes with a 3-year factory warranty. What else in the WORLD comes with a 3-year factory warranty these days??
Available in any color you like, as long as it's green. To be more specific: somewhere between Vietnam-era US military camouflage green and old-school hospital room green.
I skipped the fancy accessories, like the expensive RE-20 specific shock mount ($125) and the RE-20 specific pop filter. A standard condenser mic shock mount and boom arm works fine. And while this mic, more than most, will work fine without a windscreen, a standard cheap foam windscreen stretched over the end makes it sound even better. No need to get the dorky little RE-20 specific pop filter.
Used correctly and with a good pre-amp, the RE-20 is a sword of truth cutting through the murky swamp of media lies and statist COINTELPRO sheeple-bleeting horizontal enforcement of injustice.
If you want to hear some stellar two-minute audio tests I did with the RE-20 I bought on Amazon, Google:

However, if you know how to talk into a microphone, and want one for voice-over work, the Shure SM-7 is THE best microphone on the market today. (So was the SM-5, but it is no longer manufactured) AND, the Shure is cheaper too.
However, this one does LOOK better, and it is just as widely used in radio as the SM-7, so if you really like the looks of this one, then go ahead and get it.
However, for just a few extra bucks, the RE-27 is the improved version with better frequency response, so might as well get the better one. It looks almost the same.
The heavy-duty internal pop filter reduces the effects of vocal plosives.
It is the Variable-D design of this microphone (a completely different design element) that reduces proximity effect.
Read the manufacturer's literature, which supports the above.
Highly recommended, you won't regret buying one.
But would it work for me?
The answer is yesssss! Right off the bat, it was outstanding. The difference is incredible. Do yourself a favour and get this microphone. You will not be disappointed. I'm back to enjoying the production of the podcast once again!
