The Shure 55SH Series II is a Unidyne cardioid dynamic microphone boasting a classic look and vocal-tailored sound for recording sessions, live stage applications, and on-camera use. The dynamic cartridge is shock-mounted to impede handling noise and vibrations transferred through your mic stand. The implementation of a cardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis noise and ambience, yielding higher gain before feedback and attenuated stage bleed.
The mic delivers a frequency response of 50 Hz to 15 kHz with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6.5 kHz. Its XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most mixer inputs, microphone preamps, and portable PA systems. An on/off switch is provided for convenient muting of the mic between speeches or performances. The attached, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount can be tilted up to 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward. Chrome die-cast metal construction provides tour-worthy durability
