    Shure WL185SHU Black Cardioid Lavalier Microphone with TA4 Connector

    The black Shure WL185 is a cardioid lavalier microphone well suited for a wide variety of interview, presentation, broadcast, and film/video applications. The mic features a TA4F connector compatible with Shure wireless transmitters.

    The WL185 lav filters out unwanted low frequencies below 50 Hz and sharp highs in the range above 17 kHz to provide clear, intelligible speech for instructors, journalists, and presenters doing interviews, voiceovers, and dialog. The microphone capsule can handle SPL levels up to 130.5 dB, while the cardioid polar pattern focuses audio capture on the talent in a 130° pick-up angle in front of the mic—picking up less background sound and helping to reduce feedback on amplified stages.

    This electret condenser microphone features a 4’ cable and is optimized for a 5 VDC power source, but can operate on 1.5 to 10 VDC available through the TAFM connector on a Shure wireless bodypack transmitter or similar compatible device. A snap-fit windscreen and a smaller foam windscreen are included, along with a modular lapel clip that offers 90° rotation for optimal mic placement. A single-mount lapel clip and a double-mount lapel clip are also provided.

    A Cardioid Lavalier with an Interchangeable Capsule Design

    Cardioid Polar Pattern

    The mic's cardioid polar pattern picks up sound in front of the capsule at a 130° angle for less background sound and reduced feedback from monitors and sound reinforcement equipment.

    Frequency Response Tailored for Speech

    With a frequency range from 50 Hz to 17 kHz, the mic filters out unnecessary high and low frequencies for accurate and transparent speech reproduction.
