Shure BLX® Wireless Systems provide a great option for making yourself mobile while speaking. Handheld wireless microphones are often used when multiple people need to be miked for short periods of time, or when you need one mike source for multiple unknown people, such as in a Q&A session. Well-suited for speaking applications, the BLX2/SM58 handheld is also a favorite among singers. Whether using as a handheld or in a microphone stand, this wireless microphone is perfect for quick and easy use.
Durability is an important feature in handheld microphone systems. The hardened steel mesh grille over the microphone cartridge protects against damage from sweat drips to mic drops. Even with the protections built into the microphone’s rugged construction, the mic is lightweight and comfortable to hold.
Compatible with BLX4 and BLX4R receivers, this handheld microphone can be used up to 300 feet away (line of sight) from the receiver. Two AA batteries power the handheld mic for up to 14 hours of continuous use. Power on/off and group and channel buttons are all on the handheld transmitter. In addition to changing frequency with the group and channel buttons, the channel button can adjust gain setting with -10 dB of gain attenuation. A 2-color LED indicator on the transmitter keeps you aware of current operating statuses.
Legendary audio performance is the standard with each system available in the Shure BLX® series. Dynamic vocal microphone cartridge SM58 helped set that standard by being one of the most common mics in live performances and speeches. From rock stars and pop idols to comedians, even presidents to popes, this uniform cardioid microphone is trusted to reproduce every note or word as it was intended while leaving background noise behind. Its cardioid pattern isolates the desired sound, providing excellent rejection of unwanted noise. Keep control of your sound in unpredictable environments with pneumatic shock mount absorbing handling noise, spherical mesh grille and built-in pop filter minimizing wind and plosives.
Note: When purchasing separate wireless components, please match their frequency bands to ensure proper system operation.
