Shure's Axient® Digital Wireless Systems are engineered to deliver on powerful possibilities. The AD2 is one of the AD Series of Transmitters that bring professional-quality wireless digital audio within reach, with breakthrough RF performance and wide tuning up to 184 MHz. The AD series of transmitters provide compatibility with a shared Axient Digital receiver platform.

The RF landscape is ever-changing—jammed with TV transmissions, mobile devices, and other wireless equipment, as well as becoming more congested and unpredictable every day. Incorporating the most innovative wireless audio technology in the world, Shure's Axient Digital was engineered from the ground up for professional productions that require flawless execution for a wide range of applications and settings.

KSM8 Microphone Capsule
The Shure KSM8 features a Dualdyne™ design delivering 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/KSM8N Handheld Transmitter Features:

  • Backlit LCD with easy-to-navigate menu and controls
  • Wide tuning up to 184Mhz
  • Two transmission modes:
    • Standard for optimal coverage
    • New High Density mode for maximum system channel count and robust coverage
  • Encryption-enabled, secure transmission
  • Frequency and power lockout
  • External contacts for docked charging
  • Available with a variety of Shure microphone cartridges
  • Uses SB900A rechargeable or AA batteries 

Shure KSM8 Capsule Features:

  • Patented Dualdyne cartridge design features 2 ultra-thin diaphragms (one activeand one passive) and a ground breaking inverted airflow system
  • Accurate, flat frequency response greatly minimizes the need for EQ andprocessing
  • Exceptional control of proximity effect greatly increases working distancewithout 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 SoftMagmaterial, 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 andstabilizes the active diaphragm from unwanted movement from plosives or impact
  • Dent-resistant, hardened carbon-steel grille design lined with hydrophobicwoven fabric provides exceptional water, plosive, and wind protection
  • Truest cardioid polar pattern available controls bleed for a more naturalsound

Shure KSM8 Capsule Specifications:

  • Type: Dual-diaphragm dynamic (moving coil)
  • Frequency Response: 40 to 16,000 Hz
  • Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Output Level: Open Circuit Voltage: -51.5 dBV/Pa (1) / (2.66 mV)
