Boasting analog wireless dual transmission, the BLX1288/MX153 Wireless Microphone Combo System from Shure is ideal for speech and music applications. This system includes a BLX1 Bodypack Transmitter, a BLX2 Handheld Transmitter with SM58 mic capsule, a MX153 earset microphone, a Beta98H/C instrument microphone, and a BLX88 Dual Wireless Receiver, as well as a power supply and guitar cable. 

More about the MX153 Headworn Microphone

Part of Shure’s Microflex line, the MX153 is an earset mic with an omnidirectional pickup pattern for achieving pristine speech clarity. Its low-profile design allows for discreet mic placement, making it easy to integrate into a wide range of applications including corporate presentations, worship services, A/V conferencing, and live sound reinforcement. The comfortable over-ear design makes it great for long performances.

The MX153 features enhanced plosive protection with no proximity effect, as well as improved gain before feedback. Its integrated CommShield® Technology stops RF interference from cellular devices and digital bodypack transmitters. Other features include a choice of 3 color options, the inclusion of 3 windscreens and a protective pouch, and direct TA4F connectivity to Shure bodypacks.

More about the Beta98H/C

The Beta98H/C is a miniature microphone that easily and reliably clamps onto the bell of wind instruments or the rim of percussion instruments. Its preamplifier circuitry delivers high gain-before-feedback and improves linearity across the full frequency range for a tailored response for natural sound reproduction. Its cardioid pickup pattern isolates your sound from unwanted noise. A ratcheting swivel joint lets you secure it to your instrument with confidence. Its gooseneck lets you reposition it to the precise angle to capture the best sound, while a gooseneck angle brace keeps it there. An integrated shockmount isolates the mic from the instrument’s vibrations for minimal handling noise.

More about the BLX1 Bodypack Transmitter

The lightweight yet rugged build of the BLX1 means you don’t have to worry about damage during everyday use, and it easily clips onto a belt, pocket, or guitar strap for optimal placement. A TQG connection on this transmitter enables connection with lavalier, headset, earset, and instrument mics, as well as guitar cables. It’s capable of up to 300 feet line-of-sight operation, while it boasts a battery life of up to 14 hours, with an LED status indicator to warn you when it’s time to recharge. Turn the transmitter on and off and control your gain with controls on the bodypack itself. Its group and channel selection buttons enable quick frequency matching with the receiver.

More about the BLX2 Handheld Transmitter

Lightweight and rugged, the BLX2 delivers audio with professional-caliber clarity and consistency, its sound is customized via its integrated microphone capsule design. This handheld transmitter is capable of -10dB of gain attenuation.

More about the SM58 Microphone Capsule

Boasting a classic look and world-renowned engineering, the SM58 is a durable, versatile mic that handles vocals with clarity and precision. The cardioid pattern minimizes the pickup of background noise, so the mic captures your voice—and not any noise from the sides or back. An integrated pneumatic shock mount absorbs handling noise, so your sound doesn’t get lost in vibration. Meanwhile, the iconic spherical mesh grille and the mic’s built-in pop filter protect your audio from wind and plosives, helping you effortlessly screen out unwanted air.

The rugged BLX88 is an analog wireless receiver that can expand to up to 12 mic channels on each channel for a total of 24. Since this is a dual-channel receiver, two frequencies will be selected. Other features include QuickScan, a microprocessor-controlled internal antenna, connectivity to PA systems and mixing boards, and much more!
