Achieve optimal vocals in any environment with the KSM9HS Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone from Shure. Based on the features and functionality of the KSM9, this handheld mic includes additional flexibility of two new polar patterns to offer even more options for your sound. Designed to deliver open, natural sound reproduction and capture every vocal nuance and detail, it boasts exceptional frequency consistency and a dual Mylar diaphragm, as well as an included shock mount to minimize self-noise.

The KSM9HS vocal mic is great for:

  • Demanding live environments
  • Professional recording studios
  • Miking solo or multiple vocalists

Use the mic’s hypercardioid polar pattern to isolate your vocals from surrounding noise while enjoying high gain before feedback—perfect for noisy environments such as live performances. Alternatively, select the KSM9HS subcardioid setting to widen the coverage angle and pick up multiple sound sources.

Defining Characteristics of the KSM9HS

  • Switchable hypercardioid and subcardioid polar patterns offer maximum flexibility in a wide variety of performance applications
  • Dual 3/4” gold layered, low-mass Mylar® diaphragms achieve superior frequency response and proximity control
  • Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response with no crossover distortion, while minimizing harmonic and inter-modulation distortion
  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz
  • Premium electronic components, including gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • An advanced suspension shock mount minimizes handling noise
  • Integrated three-stage 'pop' protection grille reduces plosives, wind, and other breath noise
