Shure MX150 Overview

The black Shure MX150B/C-XLR Subminiature Cardioid Lavalier Microphone is a tiny lav mic well suited for broadcast, sermons, presentations, public address, and much more. This version includes the RK100PK XLR in-line preamplifier for use with standard XLR connections in mixers, recorders, mic-pres, etc.

The microphone's diminutive size makes it visually discreet and allows for easy concealment. Shure's CommShield technology makes the mic impervious to noise caused by mobile devices, Wi-Fi, TV signals, and other RFI sources. This version of the mic features a cardioid polar pattern that focuses sound capture in front of the capsule for less background sound and reduced feedback, making it well suited to applications where sound-reinforcement equipment is used.

The MX150 includes a snap-fit windscreen and a multi-position tie clip with an integrated cable management system that minimizes noise without increasing cable strain and tension. A carrying case is also supplied.

XLR Connector
Compatible with a Wide Variety of Professional Audio Gear
  • The MX150 will work with mixers, cameras, camcorders, portable audio recorders, interfaces, and a wide range of audio equipment able to supply the mic with phantom power.
A Discreet Cardioid Lavalier with Broadcast-Quality Sound
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The mic's cardioid polar pattern picks up sound in front of the capsule at a 130° angle for less background sound and reduced feedback from monitors and sound-reinforcement equipment.
Ample Headroom for Vocals
With its ability to withstand up to 134.5 dB SPL without distorting, the MX150 can handle vocals and speech for performance and broadcast applications.
Wide Frequency Response
The wide, linear 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range provides accurate and transparent reproduction of speech and vocals.

question

We want mics that can be used to support Woodwinds and reed instruments as well as theater.. We are buying Shure SLX4, and SLX1-H5 Receivers and transceivers and need flexibility in mics to use across Choir, Band, Orchestra, Chamber and Mixed Brass woodwind ensembles. We want to mix and match Mics to the base hardware.. Ideas?

The Shure WL93 is an excellent budget conscious choice. The Countryman E6 (B&H # COE6XOW6B2SL ) is a solid step-up model.http://bhpho.to/1GEvZNM
