MX183, MX184, MX185 Microflex Lavalier Microphones

Microflex® Lavalier microphones bring a new level of sophistication to personal voice reproduction. Like all Microflex family microphones, the Lavaliers use Shure's interchangeable condenser cartridges, available in cardioid, supercardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns. That means you can be sure there is a Microflex Lavalier that's right for your application.  Compatible with all Shure wireless bodypack transmitters, their high sensitivity and wide frequency response guarantee great sound.

SHURE MICROPHONES - Miniature

Intended for use wired with a cable, rather than with a radiomic transmitter, this selection of models includes the SM11 miniature, omni-directional, dynamic type and the Microflex MX100 Series, miniature lapel types which use interchangeable condenser cartridges available in cardioid, supercardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns.

SM11

A miniature, omni-directional, dynamic microphone this is 'designed for use in television broadcasting, sound reinforcement, certain radio and motion picture applications, and similar uses where a small, professional-quality microphone is required'. The frequency response is 'optimized for lavalier use'. Supplied with 'a tie clasp assembly, tie tack assembly, connector belt clip, and zippered carrying bag'.

The cable is 1.2m long, two-conductor, shielded, non-detachable, fitted with an XLR connector with belt-clip.

Included accessories: 'Tie clasp assembly, tie tack assembly, connector belt clip, and zippered carrying bag'.

MX183, MX184, MX185

The MX183, MX184 and MX185 are supplied with omni-directional, super cardioid and cardioid cartridges respectively. They have a 1.2 m cable, terminated with a 4-pin, female mini connector (TA4F), to fit the supplied in-line pre-amplifier.

For versions without a pre-amp, suitable for use with Shure wireless body-pack transmitters, see:'Shure Microphones - Miniature - For Radiomic Bodypack'.

Included accessories: Belt-clip preamp, rotatable tie-clip, dual tie-clip and a snap-fit windscreen.
Optional accessories: RB183B, RB183W, RB184B, RB184W, RB185B. RB185W alternative cartridges.

SM93

A diminutive lapel microphone, unusually, rectangularly shaped (9.4×5.8×3.8mm), the SM93 is equalised for optimum pick-up when worn on the chest. It is particularly suited to applications where the microphone is to be camouflaged by sewing into (black) clothing, using the bracket supplied, such as sound reinforcement for the clergy. A phantom powered pre-amplifier is provided, with in-line XLR style connector, to which it connects with a Tini-QG TA4F miniature plug.
