Shure MX418 Reviews

Wonderful sound and clarity

I purchased this microphone on the recomendation of the B&H sales staff for use during religious services and installed it on the podium. It works very well. The sound is true, the voice clarity prefect, and the pick up when the speaker is off center from the mic is very good.

Will Buy Again

B&H has a wonderful webpage layout so I can decide which mic is best for me. Shure has a great way to select too but come back to B&H to purchase. These mic's have been around forever and proven themselves to work for about 20 years. I know, I just sent two in for repair at Shure after 20. Buying a new one solved my pulpit pickup problem.

Our church bought this mic for our second lectern and it is working really well. This mic replaced a Shure SM58 on a stand and it's better in every way--better sounding, more sensitive, easier to adjust, and more inconspicuous. It sounds very natural and it's sensitive enough to pick up all of our speakers, even the quiet ones. The 18 inch length makes it easy to adjust to our tallest and shortest speakers and it's so slim that it never gets in the way. It came with two different mounts needed to install it and the pop filter is effective even if the speaker is very close to the mic.

Great Microphone!!!

This condenser goose neck mic can be used with a computer with the addition of an audio interface, such as the Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB Audio Interface (3rd Generation), BH #FOSCARSOLO3G. The audio interface can provide the necessary 48 volt phantom power that the mic requires, as well as convert the analog signal into a digital signal, which then conects via the included USB cable to your computer.

question

we are using shure MX418 microphones {4 mics} and when they work they start to do noise instead of amplify the voice. Is there some Batreys in them that need to be changed?
Asked by: seb c.
They have no batteries, my guess is that the connector is loose or the problem is elsewhere. This mic should give you at least 10 years of service. Usually this frequency response changes for the worse over time.

Can this be mounted without the shock mount onto a regular surface mount XLR Female (like the Neutrik NA3FDM)?

Yes, the Shure MX418S 18" Supercardioid Gooseneck Microphone with Preamp should be capable of mounting directly to a sturdy, compatible 3-Pin XLR female connection without the included flange mount.
