The Electro-Voice HM2 headworn microphone is the idealmicrophone for anyone who requires high-quality vocals in ahands-free application. The HM2 is perfect for use by leadvocalists, singing instrumentalists, dancers, aerobic instructorsand other presenters.
The HM2 has a miniature electret condenser element designedwith a cardioid polar pattern, which attenuates background noisessuch as sound from nearby floor monitors, on-stage musicalinstruments and crowd noise. The furnished open-porewindscreen slips over the microphone element to reduce windnoise and minimize P-popping – the excessive explosive breathnoise caused by overemphasized "p" and "t" sounds.
