Shure WH20 overview

  • 1Description

The improved version of the WH10, the Shure WH20, is a rugged, lightweight, dynamic headset microphone that provides high-quality voice pickup. It fits securely for active microphone users, such as aerobics instructors and musicians, with low visibility for stage appearances. The WH20 is suitable for any voice communications application where comfort and reliability are required.

The WH20 has a cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern. This provides greater gain-before-feedback and isolation from ambient noise and other unwanted sound sources, such as air conditioning, musical instruments, and loudspeakers. A carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency roll off to compensate for the proximity effect inherent in cardioid microphones during close-talk operation. An integrated elastic CROAKIES headband secures the headset comfortably. The headband, wireframe, and gooseneck are adjustable to accommodate any head size or shape.

Right-angle 1/4" (6.3 mm) phone plug for unbalanced mic output is included
Lightweight wireframe and headband adjust for a secure, comfortable fit
Extra-strong, small-diameter attached microphone cable resists breakage
Collapsible microphone boom for easy storage and transportation
Smooth, natural frequency response comparable to high-quality dynamic handheld vocal microphones
High input clipping level eliminates overload distortion
Reliable at temperature and humidity extremes

    WH20 Headset Mic with 1/4" Phone Connector for Unbalanced Mic Output is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headset to Teach Aerobics! I have been teaching aerobics for 12 years and love this headset. It holds through jumping, turning, bending and lots of sweating with great sound and stays in place. Very comfortable to wear too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT AS A VOCODER MICROPHONE I purchased this mic to use with A Korg Kronos X 88 as a vocoder mic, and it works perfectly. It produces a strong, quality signal, and rejects the program output from the studio monitors, so I can practice the part before isolating with head phone...which are comfortable to wear with the mic headset. I plug it directly into one of the inputs on the Kronos. I thought about getting a condenser mic, but then you need phantom power and possibly batteries. Even though this will be used mostly in the studio, I didn't want to mess with phantom power issues and low-Z connectors and adapters, and I am happy to say the signal is plenty hot. I saw a video on youtube with Spike Edney using this very mic, and figured if it was good enough to tour with, it would be good enough in the studio. I find the headband comfortable, stable, and easily adjustable. Also, the mic is easy to adjust and stays where you put it. At first, my only gripe was that the cord is too short, but I realize it is better that way. I run a cord to my clothes from the keyboard and tether it, then connect the mic connector there. It's great when tech works, and I am very happy with this purchase for what I am using it for. I think it would make a great stage mic with a wireless system or wired, but I have not tried that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... As a group fitness instructor, I depend on my mic. The connection on my old mic, finally went and I needed a new mic quickly. ... For anyone who's had to share a mic, you know the importance of having your own and B&H made that possible. I chose B&H for their pricing ... Regarding the mic, I only use Shure.
