Shure Super 55 overview

  • 1Description

Presented in a chrome casing with blue foam, the Shure Super 55 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone boasting a classic look and vocal-tailored sound for recording sessions, live stage applications, podcasting, and on-camera use. The dynamic cartridge is shock-mounted to impede handling noise and vibrations transferred through your mic stand. The implementation of a supercardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis noise and ambience, yielding higher gain before feedback and attenuated stage bleed.

The mic delivers a frequency response of 60 Hz to 17 kHz with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6 kHz. Its XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most mixer inputs, microphone preamps, and portable PA systems. The attached, self-tensioning swivel mount can be tilted up to 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward. Chrome-plated, die-cast construction provides tour-worthy durability. It ships with a zippered bag for safe storage.

Classic Appearance
In addition to being a mic with solid audio characteristics for the studio and stage, the Super 55 makes a great prop microphone in video shoots, photos, and theater applications
Tailored Frequency Response
The 60 Hz to 17 kHz frequency response features a slight dip in the low-mid frequency range and a gentle rise above 1 kHz, making its sonic performance optimal for vocals, public address, and dialog
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing sound pickup at the off-axis sections of the capsule, ensuring high gain before feedback
Shock-Mounted Cartridge
The dynamic capsule is shock-mounted for added protection against shock- and structure-born noise

    Shure Super 55 reviews

    Super 55 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone (Chrome with Blue Foam) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look cooler...sound better! I'm a solo performer (guitar/vocals) who's performed for over 20 years. I can say, without hesitation, I sound better (and look better) with the Super 55 than any other mic I've owned. Vocals are just crisper and cut through the mix better with this mic. And, there is no cooler looking mic around. I just wonder why I have waited this long to get it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It sounds as good as it looks As a singer for my band I was looking for a mic that will pick up my vocals to match the loud guitars and drums. This mic not only delivered well for a life performance. It also helps that it has the retro look and is a heavy piece of gear. If you want a clear sound mic then this is it hands down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Mic! I own a audio company in Southern California. I needed a vintage mic to use for a gig with a Billie Holliday impersonator. I ordered the Super 55 and was not disappointed. The mic sounded GREAT!!! It had superior off access rejection as my FOH speaker system had to be behind the performer in a very tight space. The mic is beautifully crafted and very sturdy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from a real eye catcher I use the mic for Karaoke - does a fine job!
    Date published: 2011-02-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally... The best mic I've ever bought. This mic is solid. My band does rock music and we got 0 feed back in our 20X20 ft. practice room. Pretty impossible with any other mic. The quality is accurate and raw. Also good for my video voice over work. Lastly, no microphone looks sexier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This mic both looks great and sounds great. And let's be honest; both are very important. I'm using this mic for both spoken word performances and the vocalist in the band I play with and I love it for both occasions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality! I use this microphone for vocals. The sound quality is amazing. Clear vocals and warm feeling. This is a heavy mic with superb built quality
