Shure MX393 overview

  • 1Description

The MX393 from Shure is a surface-mounted, electret condenser microphone. It is designed to be mounted on conference tables, stage floors, and lecterns. Its high sensitivity and wide frequency range makes it especially suitable for picking up speech and vocals in sound reinforcement and recording applications. Interchangeable cartridges provide the installer with greater flexibility and make it possible to easily reconfigure microphone coverage as the need arises. A removable microphone cable and an internal preamplifier are included.

MX393 series microphones take advantage of the principle that, at a barrier or boundary, the sound pressure level doubles. When placed near a sufficiently large boundary surface, the microphone has 6 dB higher sensitivity and approximately 3 dB greater direct-to-reverberant sound ratio.

Flat frequency response across the vocal range for uncolored sound
Interchangeable cartridges that provide a choice of polar pattern for each application
Sleek, low-profile design for surface mounting
Balanced, transformerless output for increased immunity to noise
Programmable mute button
LED indicator
Logic input/output for remote control or use with automatic mixers
RF filtering

    Shure MX393 reviews

    MX393/O Microflex Omnidirectional Boundary Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, rugged, sounds great I'm using this microphone with a portable digital recorder, and the combo is great. This mic is typical of Shure products; it's rugged and sounds great. This model is the omnidirectional version - I also have a couple MX393/C which have a cardioid pattern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the Way Around Great Sound I use this microphone when I am shooting more then two on screen talents. It eliminates the need to mic each person individually and from having to precisely position a boom mic. I have used this mic to record 3 and four people sitting around a table and was very happy with the quality of the sound. Obviously, the person closest to the mic sounds the best but the quality of the people the furthest from the mic was very good with very minimal fall off. I would highly recommend this mic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Mike I am not an expert on mikes, but we decided to spend a bit more on a mike for the altar at our church. The mike seems to work quite well as expected. The only thing that was disappointing is what I had understood was an on/off switch. It is not really a switch at all. It is more like a mute button that has its effect ONLY if you are holding it down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm We use two of these in a conference room with a video conferencing system. They are placed at two points on the conference table and pick up all conversations no matter which direction the participant is talking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in a pinch. I've given this mic 4 out of 5 stars because of course you'd want a dedicated mic for anything truly important, and this omni-directional mic is not, by nature, a dedicated mic. But it works great for groups of people when there are not enough mics to go around. I use it for depositions and conference style recording and it works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a good job Used to record government meetings. Sound quality and pick-up depends on the room, but these are unobtrusive and work better than the gooseneck mics with a cardioid pattern we were using. One caveat - needs phantom power source (48V)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We use the mic in a room with about 30 other same mics for an interactive college classroom.
