Shure WH20 Overview

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.

XLRM for balanced microphone 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

Yes, you can wear headphones while using the WH-20 headset mic. It's a matter of which style headphones are most comfortable for you while wearing the mic. In-ear style headphones will most likely be the easiest to use.

is this compatable for use with the Shure BLX4 wireless system?
Asked by: Raymond
This is designed to plug directly into a mixer. The option of the WH20 that would connect to a BLX bodypack needs a TA4F connector. That can be found here: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/162053-REG/Shure_WH20TQG_WH20TQG_Headworn_Mic.html

question

Will the Shure WH20 Headset Mic with XLR Connector for Balanced Mic Output B&H # SHWH20XLR MFR # WH20XLR work with a Fender Passport 150 Pro?
Asked by: Marshall
It will work. You can plug it directly to one of the mic inputs. I would recommend buying a longer cable or even a wireless system to use it with so you have the freedom to walk around and move with it.

question

How long is the cable?
Asked by: Faizan
If this cable is not long enough for your needs, you could always attach another XLR cable to the headsets XLR cable. You can run up 200 feet of interconnect XLR cables before you have to worry about sound degradation.I hope this helps!
