Shure 55SH II overview

  • 1Description

The Shure 55SH Series II is a Unidyne cardioid dynamic microphone boasting a classic look and vocal-tailored sound for recording sessions, live stage applications, 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 cardioid 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 50 Hz to 15 kHz with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6.5 kHz. Its XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most mixer inputs, microphone preamps, and portable PA systems. An on/off switch is provided for convenient muting of the mic between speeches or performances. The attached, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount can be tilted up to 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward. Chrome die-cast metal construction provides tour-worthy durability.

Classic Appearance
In addition to being a mic with solid audio characteristics for the studio and stage, the 55SH Series II makes a great prop microphone in video shoots, photos, and theater applications
Tailored Frequency Response
The 50 Hz to 15 kHz frequency response features a slight dip in the low-mid frequency range and a gentle rise from 1 to 10 kHz, making its sonic performance optimized for vocals, public address, and dialog
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid 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 55SH II reviews

    55SH Series II Unidyne Cardioid Dynamic Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    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.
