  • 1Description
  • 2Subminature Profile
  • 3Cardioid Polar Pattern
  • 4Full Signal Reproduction

The Shure R185BQ is a replacement capsule for the WL185 cardioid miniature lavalier microphone. The cardioid pick up pattern provides adequate rejection of off-axis ambient signal that can cause noise and feedback. The low-profile sub-miniature design is ideal for applications where the microphone must be concealed. The screw-on design allows for quick, easy installation.

Subminature Profile

The miniature capsule is easy to conceal during video, broadcast, stage and sound reinforcement applications.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the capsule, reducing noise and feedback.

Full Signal Reproduction

A wide frequency response and high SPL rating results in full, clear audio reproduction for speech.
