Shure MX185 Cardioid Condenser Lavalier Microphone

The Shure MX185 Cardioid Lavalier Microphone features a wide dynamic range and frequency response for accurate sound reproduction of vocals, instruments and other sound sources. The microphone may be clipped to neckties, lapels, and other articles of clothing, making it an ideal solution for interviews, presentations, dictation and sound reinforcement. The cardioid polar pattern features a uniform frequency response and adequately rejects noise and feedback at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The MX series lavalier microphone feature interchangeable cartridges for easy servicing and replacement. The MX185 features a 4' (1.2 m) long cable with an TA4-F connection. The supplied RK100PK preamplifier provides the standard 3-pin XLR connection. Additional accessories include tie clips, a foam windscreen, zipper pouch, and snap-fit windscreen.
