Used with a headset microphone, and also with adapter cord to a keyboard. Transmitter has adjustable gain, so it can be set to match the handheld transmitter also on the same channel. Usually get 10-15 hours per pair of alkaline AA batteries.

Great for Wireless !

I am not sure if the H numbers strictly refer to the frequency range. Are any of these compatible with Shure PG88 Wireless Microphone Mic Receiver H7 536-548 ?
Asked by: Maria
The use of "H9" in reference to the Shure BLX1 Wireless Bodypack Transmitter (H9: 512 to 542 MHz) does indeed refer to the specified frequency range this transmitter operates on. The Shure PG88 receiver is from a discontinued product line and compatible transmitters do not appear to be available any longer unfortunately. Please contact our Pro Audio team via phone, chat, email, or in-store for assistance in choosing a new system.

Is it compatible with any mic system

Is it compatible with any mic system
Asked by: Aiden
No. This transmitter can only be used with these Shure receivers- BLX4, BLX4R, and the BLX88. Either receiver must be in the same frequency range as that transmitter, specifically range J10. Please also note, that transmitter has a ta4m connection, and can only be used with mics wired for Shure systems utilizing a ta4f on the mic.

question

Is there any body pack receiver that can be used with this product? I already own the BLX1 transmitter H8 but I am trying to see if it will work with a portable mixer for a film shoot.
Asked by: Anonymous
There is no body pack receiver for the BLX wireless systems. Only tabletop or rack mounted receivers.
