The improved version of the WH10, the Shure Model WH20XLR 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 WH20XLR is suitable for any voice communications application where comfort and reliability are required. The WH20XLR has a cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern. This provides greater gain-before-feedback and isolation from ambient noise and other unwanted sound sources, such as air-conditioning, musical instruments and loudspeakers. A carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency rolloff to compensate for the proximity effect inherent in cardioid microphones during close-talk operation. An integrated elastic CROAKIES ® headband secures the headset comfortably. The headband, wireframe,and gooseneck are adjustable to accommodate any head size or shape. The WH20XLR is supplied with a foam windscreen and clothing clip.

Lightweight wireframe and headband adjust for a secure, comfortable fit.
Extra-strong, small-diameter attached microphone cable resists breakage.
Collapsible microphone boom for easy storage and transportation.
Smooth, natural frequency response comparable to high-quality dynamic hand-held vocal microphones.
High input clipping level eliminates overload distortion.

      good mic

      By Andrew

      Comments about Shure WH20XLR - Headworn Dynamic Microphone:

      Love this Mic. I was using an A tech headset Mic before. This one is much better. It doesn't pick up as much of the drum set.

      I bought this for my son who plays a keyboard. He plugs it in the back of the keyboard with an adapter so it doesn't tie up an amp port. It has good sound quality and wears well.

      Comments about Shure WH20XLR - Headworn Dynamic Microphone:

      Straight out of the box this is a great product. It's light, fully adjustable to fit any head size but best of all is the sound quality. It is 'almost' as good as a hand held sm58 (needs a little more 'pre amp' and it has just slightly more treble response than the sm58). The freedom it gives to a 'guitar vocalist' like myself is quite simply amazing. Before I was rigidly glued to my mic and stand now I find myself almost dancing whilst performing...It must be even better for a drummer or keyboard player...total freedom to move. I love my WH20 xlr.

        We use these to record a podcast, and they're designed for live performance, but for us they work great, and better than snowballs, since our crew don't have great mic technique.

            I use this while puppeteering for video to keep my audio levels consistent. Typically, I rely on the boom to pick up varying levels of audio to later be replaced by a proper VO track. With this mic, I've actually been able to use the track straight from the mic on occasion, without having to record in the booth afterwards. Not the best quality but really, really good, especially for the price.

                Comments about Shure WH20XLR - Headworn Dynamic Microphone:

                Each month I record a live game show for radio with four panelists, a host, and guests from the audience. The show takes place in a long concrete and brick bar with terrible acoustics. We initially had problems with feedback and room noise bleeding into the panelist's tracks. These headworn mics have been an effective and affordable solution. The quality of the recordings has improved immensely! Now, my post-production time is greatly reduced, and my Executive Producers are happy with the final product. While not as lightweight or small as the more discreet microphones available, the price is 5-10x cheaper. The dynamic element allows me to crank the gain without feedback. As other reviewers have noted, it does require careful positioning for optimum sound.

                    Was looking for a decent but not so expensive headworn mic to sing while I play my drums, and I came across this. After reading all the reviews of pros and cons I decided to try it out. I couldn't believed how well it worked when I first used it. To me, it's pretty balanced for what I'm using it for. Unless I have extra money to spend on a super expensive one then I will, but overall, Price is Great, Quality was Great!!!!!! A power button would really be a plus.

                      We use 2 of those microphone for commentators during our live sport webcasts (surfing/bodyboarding events) all around the world. It work great in noisy environments but need to be well positioned. It's comfortable to wear, commentators might have to wear them for up to 8 hours in a row and their feedback were positives.
                      The XLR connectors are plugged into our audio mixing table via an XLR extension cable and don't need phantom power.
                      Great product with the right pricing.

                              The keyboard/guitar player in our band had a problem when switching instruments, plus he was always off-mike when singing. We solved the problem by buying the WH20XLR. It's a well made headset mic, comfortable, sounds very much like an SM-58 and sounds fine in the mix. The mic is slightly less gainy than an SM-58 and needs a bit of a low-end EQ bump, but once properly setup it works just fine. It's a great buy for the price and I'd definitely replace it if it were to break or get "lost".My only complain is that the mic could benifit from an on/off switch, but I can work around that.[...]

                              First of all, sorry for my english. I´m a brazilian citzen, and every time I´m in NY, I HAVE to do a "pit stop" at B&H. Usually the best prices, best brands, best gear.

                              So, about the microphone, as I said, it´s good, but not excellent. Or maybe I still don´t learn how to use it as well.

                              I´m using this mic in a Xenyx 1832 (Bheringer mixer) and I fell the voice of this mic a little lower than the other microphones (Shure PG48). I don´t know if it´s the position (head/mouth), ´cause I´ve never used a mic like this.

                              But, overall, it´s a Shure microphone, and the detachable belt clip is a good idea. I play keyboard, and for many years I was looking for a mic like this. It´s very good playing without any concern of lookint to the keys and at the same time my mouth looking for the mic!

                              Don´t forget to buy an aditional cable, XLR/M to XLR/F, at least 20 feet.

                              That´s all folks!
