Shure WL93 Reviews

replacing my experienced 183's

I'm a deposition videographer. have had (mostly) the same 6 Shure 183's for almost 15 years. and I have them jacked into Shure wireless bodypacks. Bought one of these about a year ago to see... Just bought 5 more. they sound great. they're light weight - a concern for some of my female speakers; i hated putting heavy lavs on some of their flimsy clothing.... and shurely cheaper than the venerable 183's!

Very satisfied

These mics works well. They are very susceptible to overly sweaty actors but other than that works well.

mini 4 pin xlr (TA4) makes this unusable on anything except shure products or you can purchase a $40 adapter to 3.5mm

Great mic

I ordered this mic to serve as a backup mic in my video deposition kit. I've been using this microphone for the past 6 years without any problems. In my situation, the microphones pickup voices very well in nearly every environment. When they are properly placed on a deponent, the microphones pickup voices clearly and accurately. My only negative comment is that in some situations, the microphone is a little too sensitive and picks up a little too much background noise and that requires that I keep the gain trimmed down below the usual setting. Otherwise, it's a great microphone.

question

how do you use this mic when recording to say a tascam 70d???
Asked by: kiki z.
The Shure WL93-6 features a 4 pin female connector (TA4F) designed for connection to a Shure wireless system transmitter only. This version will not connect to a recorder such as the DR-70D. The Shure SM93 is the same microphone and ships with an XLR preamp that can be powered by a recorder that offers XLR mic inputs such as the Tascam unit.

question

Is this compatible with the Shure wired SM93 Preamp?
Asked by: Andrew
Yes, the SM93 preamp (part number 90A4360) is compatible with this microphone for use in wired applications. Please note, however, that for wireless use, the preamp will not be needed as it will be powered by your bodypack transmitter.

question

Do they have this in a mini jack version, so I can connect it to my h1?
Asked by: Dezi M.
A Zoom H1 will not support the necessary power requirement for a Shure WL93. The WL93's condenser element requires 5+Vdc to operate whereas the Zoom H1's powered 3.5mm input provides only 2.5 volts of plug-in power. To ensure compatibility with your H1, you will need to select another plug-in mic that either has a condenser or MEMS style element with a lower power requirement or has a dynamic element requiring no power.

question

Will this 6 foot mic work with the the SM93 XLR preamp?
Asked by: Bruce
Yes, it will. If you already have the Shure 90A4360 preamp, you can use any WL93 with in a wired application. If you do not yet have the preamp, you have two options based on what cable length you need. If you need 6' of cable, you will have to purchase the mic and preamp separately, but if you only need 4' of cable you can simply purchase the SM93 which already includes both the mic and the preamp.
