Electro Voice ND267A Dynamic Vocal Microphone
The Electro Voice ND267A Dynamic Vocal Microphone gives you warm and crisp vocal tonality without the muddiness often found in other mics in this price range. Ideal for stage vocalists or for reproducing the spoken word, the EV ND267A features VOB technology which optimizes its bass response, a cardioid pattern for reducing feedback and a consistent sound, even at greater distances than comparable mics.
The acoustic response of the Electro Voice ND267A presents optimal performance in a live sound environment. The vocally optimized bass or VOB technology provides the performer with reduced resonant distortion at low frequencies. Critical damping of the low frequency resonant peak has resulted in a microphone that replaces the muddiness found in competitive models with greater warmth and increased vocal clarity. The increased clarity permits greater working distances than other competitive microphones, and ensures a clean, clear, consistent sound that cuts through the mix.

- Includes gig bag and stand mount adapter
The low frequency response of the ND267A microphone varies with the distance from the sound source. Known as proximity effect, maximum bass response is produced in close-up use with the microphone 1/4 inch from the sound source. Normal bass response is experienced with working distances greater than 24 inches. Working close to the microphone will produce a more robust sound. Close up positioning of the microphone will also reduce the potential for feedback from the sound reinforcement system. When close-talked, the bass-boost provides an increase in overall microphone output level. The mixer gain may be proportionately reduced, resulting in a reduction of the system’s sensitivity to feedback caused by sound entering the microphone from the loudspeakers.
Standard Placement and Use Guidelines
- Always point the microphone at the desired source of sound, and away from any unwanted sources.
- The microphone should be located close to the sound source to minimize interference from other potential sound sources.
- Use the 3-to-1 rule when using multiple microphones. Place each microphone three times farther from other microphones as from the desired sound source.
- Minimize over-handling of the microphone to reduce unwanted mechanical noise.
- Working close to the microphone will increase the bass tone and also provide increased gain-before-feedback.
