Is this compatible with a Shure MLX1 Bodypack ...

Is this compatible with a Shure MLX1 Bodypack Transmitter J10 band? thx
Asked by: Doug
This Shure MX153 Earset Headworn Microphone has a TA4F (4-pin mini-XLR female or "TQG") connector which is compatible for use with Shure bodypack transmitters. I think the model for your transmitter may be BLX1 (not MLX1 - there was a typo on some of the product descriptions from other retailers). But regardless of the model number for your transmitter, the MX153 microphone will work with Shure bodypack transmitters. The connector type and wiring configuration are what matter for compatibility of the microphone and transmitter, not the wireless frequency band that the system operates on.

I need something like this, but for broadcast from my phone. I need headphones with a professional mic built in with a 3.5mm Jack. What can you offer for me?
Asked by: Paul
For smartphone purposes, a quality bluetooth headset would be the best option of offering both a mic and headphone built in. For a low profile option, here's this Plantronics recommendation. BH #PLV5200UC .

question

Will the microphone distort with a loud singer?
Asked by: Thomas
The MX153 is intended for use in speech applications; as such it would not have the same tailored frequency response nor the same SPL rating as a condenser element built for vocals. While, depending on the singer and gain settings of the connected equipment, this model might suffice, however some more ideal headset options for vocalists would include the Shure Beta54, Beta53, SM35 or WH20XLR, with the Countryman E6 being the highest quality option available in a similar formfactor and with similar color options.
