Gearank Recommendation

The ND96 appeared on our recommended list for Dynamic Microphones from June 2020 until May 2021.

Overview

While Electro-Voice isn't as much of a household name as Shure or Sennheiser, they have been designing and manufacturing microphones since the 1930s.

They designed microphones for use in wartime bombers and tanks; mics that could cancel out the loud background noise.

Since then, they have been known to produce microphones with excellent noise suppression.

The ND96 is a modern microphone that offers great background noise and feedback suppression for live vocal use.

Designed with a large diaphragm element, presence switch and humbucking voice coils with an internal shockmount, the ND96s was built for lively singers and loud stages.

With stellar overall reviews and comments, the ND96 is a great pick for loud and energetic performances that demand absolute feedback suppression.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Dynamic Microphones.
