Description and Applications The Electro-Voice Model 655C microphone is a dynamic, omnidirectional type designed for highest quality FM, AM, and TV broadcasting. The traditional concept of bulk in broadcast microphones has been abandoned in the Model 655C. Its slim design is made possible without the necessity for closely associated auxiliary equipment. Wide frequency response, wide pickup angle, and light weight make it ideal for many BC and TV applications where size is a factor. It is equipped with an integral Electro-Voice Acoustifoam® filter which minimizes wind and breath blasts. The Model 655C can be mounted on a stand coupler which permits tilting the microphone through a 90° arc. It can be mounted also on a floor or desk stand, on a boom, or carried in the hand. This high-quality microphone features the exclusive Electro-Voice Acoustalloy® diaphragm, which permits smooth response over a wide frequency range and withstands high humidity, temperature extremes, corrosive effects of salt air, and severe mechanical shocks. It is practically indestructible with normal use.
