Shure RPW174 Overview

The black RPW174 from Shure is a dual-diaphragm dynamic microphone capsule that is compatible with all interchangeable Shure handheld wireless transmitters - sold separately - and crafted for vocal reproduction in sound-reinforcement applications such as live performances for top-tier professional venues.

Featuring one of the most innovative cardioid polar pattern capsules that Shure has developed to date; the Dualdyne cartridge virtually eliminates proximity effect. It masters off-axis rejection while providing the signal clarity typical of condenser microphones without processing, along with the reliability of dynamic microphone feedback control.

Patented cartridge design featuring two ultra-thin diaphragms (one active and one passive) and groundbreaking inverted airflow system
Exceptional control of proximity effect vastly increases working distance without on-axis coloration
Accurate frequency response due to controlled proximity effect which allows for neutral mid-and-high frequency reproduction
Off-axis attenuation is flat and broad resulting in superior quality of rejection of unwanted sound sources for increased vocal clarity
Dent-resistant, hardened carbon-steel grille design lined with hydrophobic woven fabric provides exceptional plosive and wind protection, while offering virtually waterproof protection

Shure RPW174 Reviews

Great upgrade from other capsules

By Tim

B&H is great. They always have what I need. The product is exactly as advertised. The capsule is a great step up in quality and response from an SM58, or a Beta 87. I have found that this capsule is less prone to high frequency problems that you may find with a KSM9. Both are very nice.

Absolutely Stellar Performance!

I use this on a Lectrosonics handheld transmitter. Top quality sound - as good as an unhyped condenser, and a tight polar pattern. And no proximity effect.
