The Heil PR40 is a gold standard in broadcasting, radio and the podcast world. It is dynamic so it is excellent at rejecting rear unwanted noise and it is ideal as a vocal/voiceover mic because of its larger diaphragm and the ability to capture a wider dynamic range.
Heil PR40 in the Wild
The Heil PR40 is one of the most popular microphones in podcasting and broadcasting and it is used by Leo LaPorte and the TWIT network, John Lee Dumas of EOFire and Pat Flynn of The Smart Passive Income just to name a few. It’s popular because it is well made and sounds excellent.
You will want to get the boom arm, shock mount and pop filter, so you are looking at just under $600 when all is said and done for a complete kit.
