Heil Sound PR 22 – Professional Low-Handling Noise Handheld Microphone


The Heil PR 22 microphone is a revolutionary dynamic cardioid microphone incorporating a large (1.125”) diaphragm, patent-pending ISO Band isolation mounting that offers greater articulation throughout its entire wide, flat, frequency range with very low handling noise.


Noise directed at the rear of the mic is virtually eliminated through a combination of special porting and phasing plug design. This is a sound professional’s dream, come true.

Best-in-class rear noise rejection means you’ll get more sound out of the PR 22 before feedback occurs. The PR 22 microphone has exceptional mids and highs, but not at the expense of sacrificing any of its frequency range. The PR 22 is an extraordinarily “stage-friendly” mic that can take a full-on snare hit and deliver the richest sounding snare with no overload, and no compromise. When using a pair of PR 22’s on a snare (one top-mount and one below), they produce what some say is the best snare sound available at any cost, with little or no EQ.

The PR 22 is able to deliver rich vocals, warm and accurate guitar, crisp snare drums with depth, stellar piano, shimmering cymbals, and more, to the board like never before. Whether you’re recording with the PR 22 in the studio or using it for live application, your ears will tell you it is a cut above all the “legacy microphones”.

With the PR 22 you get a leatherette carrying bag, a mic clip and three acoustically identical metal screens (Black, Silver, and Gold). Note – the Gold PR 22 only comes with the matching gold grill.
