The Shure BLX14/CVL brings presenters, teachers, clergy, and lecturers a cost-effective wireless lavalier microphone system with quality sound, simple setup, intuitive operation, and dependable performance right out of the box. It includes the compact and lightweight BLX4 single-channel tabletop receiver with internal antennas, ideal for portable use.

The BLX14/CVL also includes a CVL cardioid lavalier mic with clip and windscreen, and a bodypack transmitter. The receiver features one-touch QuickScan frequency selection to quickly search 123 available frequencies and locate a clean RF channel in case of interference. The system provides up to 14 hours of continuous use with two AA batteries, at a range up to 300'. Up to 12 mic channels can operate simultaneously in each frequency band.

This streamlined system is well suited for hands-free speech in small venues, wedding halls, and houses of worship, as well as conference, educational, and corporate facilities.

Low-Visibility Lavalier Mic Optimized for Speech
The CVL Centraverse lavalier condenser microphone is built for low visibility and clear vocal reproduction. The mic features a cardioid polar pattern that rejects unwanted noise, Commshield RF Filtering to minimize RF interference from nearby smartphones, and a tailored frequency response optimized for speech intelligibility.
Lightweight Bodypack Transmitter
The durable BLX1 bodypack transmitter offers a lightweight, ergonomic design that is comfortable for the presenter to wear. Group and channel selection buttons allow for quick and simple frequency matching with the receiver. Other features include an easily accessible on/off switch, adjustable gain control, and a TA4M 4-pin input jack.
Easy-to-Use Tabletop Receiver for Quality Audio
The BLX4 receiver employs microprocessor-controlled internal antenna diversity to improve the quality and reliability of your wireless audio. An LED display shows group and channel settings, while two LED lights indicate when the system is ready for use and the strength of the incoming audio signal. The unit offers 1/4" and XLR outputs for connectivity to PA systems and mixing boards.
A Versatile System to Meet Your Needs
Shure offers a variety of lavalier, instrument, headset, and handheld microphone options to adapt your BLX system as your needs evolve.

  • The discrete MX153 sub-miniature earset mic provides exceptional clarity in spoken word applications.
  • The PGA31 is a comfortable, durable headset microphone for active performance.
  • Instrumentalists can attach the WB98H/C flexible gooseneck instrument microphone for brass, woodwind, and percussion applications.
  • The WA302 guitar cable lets you connect the bodypack transmitter to a guitar or bass.
  • The BLX2 handheld transmitter is available with three different mic capsules for presenters who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone.

Can you use 3 of these units together? We need a total of 6 mics for a theater production.
Asked by: Mark
Yes, technically you can use 3 of these systems together. The normal max channel count for BLX systems without frequency distribution is 6. Having little to no interference really depends on where you will be using this system. Please use Shure's Frequency Finder website to make sure you are purchasing the correct frequency band based off your area code. https://www.shure.com/en-US/support/tools/frequency-finder

Will these work for stage singing, i.e., a musical with four singers, in both open spaces and closed venues? Thanks
Asked by: Jomi
This system could be a viable option for stage performance, but it depends on a few factors. First, know you will need 4 of these systems to allow for 4 wireless mics to run at the same time. Second, you would need to confirm which frequencies are available in your performance area, this would tell you what frequency ranges to use and whether this system can hand 4 mics at one time. This can be done using Shure's Wireless Frequency Finder. We would recommend giving us a call at 800-606-6969 to assist in finding that information. Lastly for musicals, you'd probably want a lower profile lav mic you could hide on the performers head, or in a costume. Here's a recommendation for that type of mic BH #SHTL47TOMTQG.

Does this come with a hard case or soft case? Or just retail packaging
Asked by: Joel
The Shure BLX wireless system comes in the original retail packaging and does not include a case. We do have a Gator Cases Carry Bag for Shure BLX Dual-Channel Wireless System (B&H # GAGMDUALW) which is sold separately.

Can you adapt the XLR or 1/4 To go into a computer 3.5 mic jack safely without risk of damaging the computer or do I need something like a Scarlet And if I can adapt it without a scarlet witch adapter should I use I know the basics but I don’t know if the output of the mic is TS TRS TRRS
Asked by: Nate
The best practice for connecting a mic to a computer would be through an audio interface like a Focusrite Scarlett or similar product. This will allow for better sound conversation to the computer, and lower noise possibilities.

Can this be utilized solely as in ear monitors?

Can this be utilized solely as in ear monitors?
Asked by: Jacob
No, the components of the Shure BLX188/CVL Dual-Channel Wireless Cardioid Lavalier Microphone System cannot be repurposed as in ear monitors. In this scenario, the smaller beltpack units are transmitters with TA4F microphone connections, where an IEM system would require them to be receivers with headphone connections.
