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
