The Heil PR 40 represents completely new dynamic microphone technology designed for a wide range of professional applications such as sophisticated recording, live sound, and commercial broadcast. Producing the widest frequency range available in a dynamic microphone, the PR 40 outperforms most condenser microphones, and can withstand huge amounts of SPL. At the same time, it maintains the 25 year Heil Sound tradition of superbly natural voice articulation.

There is a reason that most of the podcasting pros at networks like TWIT and 5by5 swear by the PR-40. It is great for really bringing out the best in most folk's conversational vocals and minimizing environmental noise. And as someone who mostly records spoken word pieces in a home studio, this was *exactly* what I was looking for in a microphone.
One point to make is that this mic absolutely *needs* preamplification. Ideally, you want to use this with a preamp with a good clean 40dBs+ of preamplification. I use a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24DSP which works beautifully with this mic, but any comparable quality mic preamp will do.
The PR-40 is top-firing mic with one of Bob Heil's very specific pick up patterns (look on Heilsound's site for more info), so it also richly rewards good mic technique. I use mine on an Electro Voice 309a Shockmount and an OC White desk-mounted boom and I couldn't be more satisfied with the positioning and the workability of this setup for daily use.
'Highly recommended' is an understatement.
