Electro-Voice RE3 Handheld Wireless System with ND96 Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone

Frequency Band 5H (560 - 596 MHz)

Recommended Retail Price


Handheld UHF wireless set featuring ND96 dynamic supercardioid microphone head for vocal performance and presentations.

The ND96’s sound is powerful, rich, and detailed, and delivers exceptionally high gain before feedback for excellent acoustic control on very loud stages. Setup is quick and simple using the RE3 clear frequency scan and sync functions, and the radio link between the robust handheld transmitter and diversity receiver delivers rock-solid system performance.


  • Crisp, clear, and balanced vocal presence
  • Large diaphragm dynamic capsule
  • Selectable low and high transmitter output power
  • Half rack space diversity receiver with rack mount
  • Frequency scanning selects open frequencies
  • Sync function links transmitter to receiver for easy system setup

Components included:

  • RE3-RX Diversity Receiver
    UHF wireless diversity receiver featuring clear frequency scanning, wireless synchronization to transmitter, balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" TRS outputs.

    The receiver pairs perfectly with any RE3-HHT handheld or RE3-BPT bodypack transmitter within the same band. Setup is quick and simple using the RE3 clear frequency scan and sync functions, and the radio link between the robust handheld transmitter and diversity receiver delivers rock-solid system performance.

    The RE3-RX is a professional rack-mountable, 1/2 space diversity receiver. Designed to function as the control center for an RE3 wireless set, it features frequency scanning and synchronizing, as well as full transmitter control settings which synchronize to a mated transmitter.

    The diversity reception technology minimizes the chances of signal dropouts by providing two separate antenna locations which are electronically chosen moment-by-moment based on signal strength and stability. The easy-to-use frequency scanning function simplifies locating and tuning to a clear operating frequency. The sync function wirelessly synchronizes all operating parameters to the mated transmitter.

    The wide tuning bandwidth provides access to a wide range of frequencies, selectable in 25kHz steps for trouble-free operation of single and multi-channel systems. The easy-to-read LCD display provides vivid viewing of all menus and operating parameters.
  • RE3-HHT Handheld Transmitter
    The RE3-HHT is a lightweight, yet robust UHF handheld transmitter body. It is ideally-suited for professional performance and presentation applications. Due to its commonly-used 1.25” diameter, 28 UN-2A thread pitch microphone head coupling, it accepts mic heads using this common coupling convention. Although primarily intended to accept the ND and RE Series heads developed for RE3 listed in the accessories section of this data sheet, the RE3-HHT will adapt other microphone heads using the 1.25” diameter, 28 UN-2A thread pitch coupling scheme.

    The all-metal body is robust and durable, and operates on 2 AA alkaline or rechargeable NiMH cells. The ultrasonic sync function makes for a simple system setup by syncing the transmitter to the receiver frequency tuning and other functional data. The selectable output power (band specific) assists in overcoming the challenges of both long, or short, transmission ranges. The tuning bandwidth affords generous frequency tuning options helping to avoid various sources of possible interference. The threaded coupling makes attaching and interchanging a variety of heads simple and convenient.

    Recharging contacts provide for functional use with the optional BC2 charging station allowing the NiMH rechargeable cells within two bodypack transmitters to be charged without removal. Robust metal body
  • ND96-RC3 Wireless Head with ND96 Capsule
    The Electro-Voice ND96-RC3 is a robust, high performance, dynamic cardioid thread-on vocal microphone head for wireless handheld transmitters. This microphone head electrically and mechanically adapts to Electro-Voice (and many other brands) wireless handheld transmitters that use the common 3-contact rings, 1.25” diameter by 28-thread pitch coupling convention. The floating captured ID collar will spin freely until screwing the head on tightly. It will remain locked in place when fully tightened. This allows the desired orientation of the branding to the transmitter.

    Designed for excellent acoustic control on very loud stages, the ND96-RC3 special structural and acoustical designs create performance characteristics allowing the microphone’s gain before feedback in a mi to be significantly louder than most microphones.

    The microphone head's dynamic capsule contains a large Mylar diaphragm, which delivers a rich and detailed frequency response by combining its large surface area for tonal balance with its low-mass high velocity material for exceptionally fast transient response.

    The microphone head features a selectable vocal presence tuning that can be engaged to reduce certain low-mid frequency areas and emphasize key upper midrange vocal presence areas to increase intelligibility in high-energy reinforcement (see charts). The microphone head features an innovative capsule shock-mount system consisting of a 4-point suspension around the circumference of the capsule combined with a tuned pneumatic pump at the capsule base, offering superior handling noise reduction to eliminate mechanical vibrations and noise in the mix.

    The Memraflex grille is made of a durable tight-mesh grille wire that withstands extraordinarily rough treatment. Your microphone head remains protected and looking good gig-after-gig, year-after-year. For additional protection, the capsule contains a hydrophobic cloth membrane, which prevents moisture and debris from reaching the diaphragm. The capsule uses a humbucking coil that attenuates AC hum and electromagnetic interference. Use the ND dynamic mics with confidence near speaker cabinets and EMF generating equipment racks.
