Shure MX185
Cardioid Lavalier Microphone

OUR PART #  MX185


They're no bigger than a paper clip unless you consider the sound they produce. The 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's a Microflex Lavalier that's right for your job.

Includes:

  • Belt-clip Preamp
  • Rotatable Tie Clip
  • Dual Tie Clip
  • Snap-Fit Windscreen

The Microflex Lavaliers are completely compatible with all Shure Wireless transmitters, and their high sensitivity and wide frequency response guarantee great sound with a minimum of RF interference or electromagnetic hum. Plus, each Microflex Lavalier features the same Shure quality sound that has become an industry standard.

Features:

  • Wide dynamic range and frequency response for accurate sound reproductionacross the audio spectrum
  • Interchangeable cartridges that provide an optimal choice for eachapplication
  • Rotatable tie-clip that pivots in 90 degree increments for placementflexibility
  • Supplied snap-fit foam windscreen that controls breath noise and stays onsecurely
  • Balanced, transformerless output for increased immunity to noise over longcable runs
  • Supplied dual tie clip holds two microphones for dual mikingapplications
