SHURE WH20-XLR MICROPHONE Headworn, dynamic, cardioid, XLR connector, black

WH20XLR Wired Dynamic Headset Microphone

The Shure WH20XLR is a rugged, lightweight, wired dynamic headset microphone that provides high-quality voice pickup. It fits securely for active microphone users, such as aerobics instructors and musicians, with low visibility for stage appearances. Suitable for any voice communications application where comfort and reliability are required.

The WH20 has a cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern. This provides greater gain-before-feedback and isolation from ambient noise and other unwanted sound sources, such as air-conditioning, musical instruments and loudspeakers. A carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency rolloff to compensate for the proximity effect inherent in cardioid microphones during close-talk operation.

An integrated elastic headband secures the headset comfortably. The headband, wireframe, and gooseneck are adjustable to accommodate any head size or shape. WH20 is supplied with foam windscreen and clothing clip.

  • WH20XLR (Wired) - Includes a three-pin male XLR connector with a convenient detachable belt clip.
  • Wireless Options:  WH20QTR & WH20TQG

Features

  • Lightweight wireframe and headband adjust for a secure, comfortable fit
  • Extra-strong, small-diameter attached microphone cable resists breakage
  • Collapsible microphone boom for easy storage and transportation
  • Smooth, natural frequency response comparable to high-quality dynamic hand-held vocal microphones
  • High input clipping level eliminates overload distortion
  • Reliable at temperature and humidity extremes
  • Supplied foam windscreen and clothing clip

User Guides

SHURE MICROPHONES - Headworn

These may be used wired or with a Shure radiomic wireless body-pack, depending on model.

SM10A

This is a low-impedance, unidirectional dynamic microphone designed for 'close-talk head-worn applications such as remote-site sports broadcasting and corporate intercom systems'. It is also 'ideal for singing drummers, keyboard artists, and other performers who need a head-worn vocal microphone with superior noise rejection and a smooth, natural-sounding frequency response'.

SM31FH-TQG

Designed for fitness, aerobic and other uses in humid environments, the SM31FH-TQG is a lightweight headset microphone with 'moisture-repelling' hydrophobic properties. The cardioid condenser microphone capsule is positioned at the end of a flexible gooseneck on the left side of the headset. Terminated with TA4F (4-pin mini XLR) connector it requires 5V DC nominal, 10V maximum, phantom power.

SM35-XLR, SM35-TQG

The SM35-XLR headset microphone has been designed to offer 'hands-free performance for multi-instrumentalists'. The 'tight' cardioid condenser capsule gives a high level of feedback rejection and is popular among users who use stage monitors. A 'tailored' frequency response of 40Hz - 20kHz and a sensitivity of -59dBV/Pa - 1.10mV/Pa results in a 'clear, and crisp vocal reproduction'. It is terminated with a 3-pin male XLR connector. The SM35-TQG has the same audio properties but is fitted with a miniature, 4-pin, female connector (TA4F) for direct connection to Shure wireless bodypack transmitters.

WH20-XLR, WH20-TQG

The WH20-XLR is a 'rugged, lightweight, dynamic headset microphone that provides high-quality voice pickup'. It fits securely for active microphone users, such as aerobics instructors and musicians, with low visibility for stage appearances. Suitable for 'any voice communications application where comfort and reliability are required', it has a cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern and a 'carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency rolloff'. It has a 3-pin male XLR connector with a detachable belt clip. The WH20-TQG is similar, fitted with a miniature, 4-pin, female connector for direct connection to Shure wireless bodypack transmitters.

WCM16

A headworn, electret condenser microphone, intended for wireless use by performers, lecturers, and others. The cable terminates with a 4-pin mini connector suitable for Shure wireless bodypack transmitters.

BETA53

A 'fully adjustable omnidirectional condenser headworn vocal microphone, designed for applications where unconspicuous appearance and incredible sound quality are required'. The WBH53 is the same microphone, fitted with a connector to suit a Shure wireless bodypack transmitter.

BETA54

A 'subminiature, electret condenser headworn microphone', this provides 'uncompromised sound quality and reliability with minimal visibility in applications such as broadcast, theater, and touring'. The microphone has a 'durable, low-profile wire frame headband which is fully adjustable for stability and comfort'. The WBH54 is the version with a connector suitable for a Shure wireless bodypack transmitter.

WBH53B, WBH53T

These types are omnidirectional condenser microphones, 'designed for applications where unconspicuous appearance and incredible sound quality are required'. The WBH53B is black, and has a 1.5m cable with 4-pin mini connector (TA4F) suitable for a Shure wireless bodypack transmitter. The WBH53T is tan coloured, but otherwise the same. The BETA53 is the version for use with a cable rather than a transmitter pack.

WBH54B, WBH54T

Condenser microphones with a supercardioid polar pattern. The WBH54B is black, and has a 1.5m cable with 4-pin mini connector (TA4F) suitable for a Shure wireless bodypack transmitter. The WBH54T is tan coloured, but otherwise the same.
