  • 1Description

A legend in it's own right the Shure 55SH Series II microphone boasts a classic look while providing pristine sonic reproduction and sensitivity response characteristics. The microphone features a dynamic capsule with a cardioid pick-up pattern which is effective in minimizing noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the capsule. As a result, higher gain before feedback is established when using near monitor speakers. Shure's classic UNIDYNE II technology combined with modern acoustic components provide a tailored signal response suitable for vocal performances, theatrical and public address applications. An On/Off switch is standard and a fixed, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount is also provided.

Tailored Signal Response
In addition to it's classic design, the 55SH has a performance response fit for professional sound reinforcement, public address and recording.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern in effective in minimizing noise born at the off-axis sections of the capsule. This ensures high gain before feedback when using near stage monitors.
Shock-Mounted Cartridge
The dynamic capsule is shock mounted for added protection against shock and structure born noise.

    Shure 55SH II reviews

    55SH/II - Cardioid Dynamic Lo-Z Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, sounds even better! I use the Shure 55SH for college game Public Address. The sound is flawlessly clean and dynamic. I can't believe I went without this mic for so long. The sound is worth every penny. It is also the first mic people actually notice for its aesthetics. It gets compliments and comments every game. The 55SH is easy to set up and use and the on/off switch is quiet and much appreciated. I would recommend this mic to anyone serious about enhancing the art of athletic public address.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied. I wanted that fat, old school sound and for my specific V.O. Application, I'm very satisfied. It's worth the extra cost for a genuine Shure product.
