The Shure AD2/KSM8B  is a Shure AD2 wireless handheld transmitter with a KSM8 capsule. It's part of Shure's Axient® Digital series.

Axient Digital Series
Axient Digital employs the most innovative wireless audio technology in the world, and was engineered by Shure from the ground up for professional productions that require top-quality execution. Delivering an unprecedented level of signal stability and audio clarity plus flexible hardware options, advanced connectivity, and comprehensive control, it's a wireless system made to meet the challenges of today—and tomorrow.

AD series handheld and bodypack transmitters bring professional-quality wireless digital audio within reach, with breakthrough RF performance and wide tuning up to 184 MHz.

KSM8 Microphone Capsule
Shure's KSM8 mic capsule features a Dualdyne™ design that delivers the quality sound demanded by elite performers and venues. It has a patented cartridge design with 2 ultra-thin diaphragms and groundbreaking reverse airflow technology.

Shure AD2/KSM8B Handheld Transmitter Features:

  • (2) transmission modes:
    • Standard for optimal coverage
    • High density mode for maximum system channel count and robust coverage
  • Encryption-enabled, secure transmission
  • Frequency and power lockout
  • Rugged metal construction in black finish
  • External contacts for docked charging

Shure KSM8 Capsule Features:

  • Patented Dualdyne cartridge design features 2 ultra-thin diaphragms (one active and one passive) and a ground breaking inverted airflow system
  • Accurate, flat frequency response greatly minimizes the need for EQ and processing
  • Exceptional control of proximity effect greatly increases working distance without on-axis coloration (and huge "sweet spot")
  • Neutral mid- and high-frequency reproduction due to controlled proximityeffect results in the most natural-sounding dynamic microphone available
  • Neodymium magnet resides in a micro-injection mold of aerospace Soft Magmaterial, maximizing the magnetic field for the highest output level
  • Re-imagined Shure Pumping Pneumatic Shock Mount features tuned cavities, specific resistances, and precisely machined components fully integrated intothe cartridge's acoustic properties, delivering exceptional rejection ofhandling noise without any loss of low-frequency response
  • Patent-pending Diaphragm Stabilization System technology protects and stabilizes the active diaphragm from unwanted movement from plosives or impact
  • Dent-resistant, hardened carbon-steel grille design lined with hydrophobic woven fabric provides exceptional water, plosive, and wind protection
  • Truest cardioid polar pattern available controls bleed for a more natural sound

Shure KSM8 Capsule Specifications:

  • Type: Dual-diaphragm dynamic (moving coil)
  • Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Output Level: Open Circuit Voltage: -51.5 dBV/Pa(1) / (2.66 mV)
