Shure Super 55 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone (Chrome with Blue Foam)
Key Features
  • Tailored for Vocals & Speech
  • Supercardioid Polar Pattern
  • Shock-Mounted Dynamic Cartridge
  • 60 Hz to 17 kHz Frequency Response
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.
