Shure Headset Vocal Microphone - WH20XLR - Wired headset microphone with 4" cable and XLR and detachable beltclip.
Shure is the the industry's standard in microphones. This headset mic is tailored to deliver warm vocals and clear vocal reproduction. The dynamic cardioid voice pattern is very similar to their famous SM58 and has the very same frequency response of 50 - 15Khz. Limited lifetime warranty.
Since every head is different, this headworn microphone is easily adjustable to fit any head (human that is) and allows positioning the mic so that it has the best pickup location and the most comfortable to wear. Imagine not having to hold a microphone in your hand or using a mic stand while playing drums or guitar, or keyboards. Since this is a wired microphone you can be sure that your voice will be picked up smoothly without any radio interference. Aerobics instructors, product demonstrators and speakers all love this mic. The microphone headset is packed with a simple to understand technical manual "Model WH20 User Guide" so that you can make sure that you are setting up and using this mic in its most efficient way.
The Shure WH20 is a rugged, lightweight, dynamic headset microphone that provides high-quality voice pickup. It fits securely for active microphone users, such as aerobics instructors and musicians, with low visibility for stage appearances.
The cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern provides greater gain-before-feedback and isolation from ambient noise and other unwanted sound sources. A carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency roll-off to compensate for the proximity effect inherent in cardioid mics during close-talk operation.
Have been thinking of headset mikes, but was concerned about the vocal quality. Gave this one a try after reading reviews -- and am glad I did. The vocal quality is pretty darned good -- close to (if not the same) as a Shure SM-58. The positioning of the mike is spot on (tried another model and never could get it right) and doesn't wiggle around. All in all, I'm very pleased with this particular model. by J., 2010
The sound is what Shure is famous for: warm, with a natural presence that never sounds like the wearer is swallowing the mic. The frequency response is on a par with Shure's handheld mics, and the output has enough headroom that I can use the same pre-amp and fader settings as the rest of the mics. by JB 2015
The SM series microphones from Shure have been around for decades and are used by more professional bands and recording artists than any other microphone. Every stage hand, sound engineer and artist even calls these mics by their model number... even abbreviating by calling them the 58 or the 57 (SM57 instrument mic) They know the sound reproduction, the trustworthness, the durability. Put these mics on any stage and will outperform any other mic of the same design from any manufacturer. SM58s and SM57s are the most sought after microphones.
And check this out...Shure has expanded their SM microphone line to focus on speech or karioke (SM48LC), a higher ended frequency response to 18Khz (SM86), and of course the standard SM57 instrument mic.
