    Shure MX153 reviews

    MX153 Earset Headworn Microphone (Cocoa) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for working actors We bought this as a less expensive, and perhaps more reliable alternative to Countryman mice, as the MX153 does not have a removable cord which seems to cause problems for us. The MX153 fits comfortably over the ear and sound quality is good, but if an actor is active under hot lights, and starts to perspire above the neck, the sweat runs down the stem of the mic and straight into the mic itself, producing a horrific popping, gravelly noise. Now, this is a very specific use, but I can only imagine anyone who does more than remain stationary under dim light will have the same problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I purchased this as an upgrade to our current shure earset used in our worship center. I think the sound quality and build quality are excellent. No complaints or regrets. I would recommend this to anyone looking at the countryman but wanting to save some money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well, sounds good. After dissapointing experiences with another headworn microphone which did not stay put on the speakers head, but slipped around all the time, I was very pleased with the MX153. It stays put and from a distance is hardly noticeable. Just what we wanted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine I am a student pastor and use this mic for preaching at our church. The microphone seems to work well with our Shure bodpacks and has a good sound. The only negative to it is that the mouthpiece extends to the very corner of your mouth. It almost goes in front of your mouth. For the price, I supposed I shouldn't be super picky, but if I am being honest, I don't really like how long this piece is. Otherwise, it is a great option for a small amount of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good solution .. With a lavalier microphone, recordings of our lectures were somewhat uneven in quality: sound levels were not constant, turning head or looking up produced a more faint result. No news, there, really. But head- or ear- worn microphones had always been too expensive or heavy. I have found this light-weight, unimposing microphone to be a perfect solution. The sound quality is excellent, the hardware convenient.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shure MX153 = Dead On Arrival I ordered this piece of equipment for a seminar. Just by chance I ordered another brand as well for comparison sake. I'm so glad I did as the Shure microphone arrived on time but was completely defective. Thankfully I had ordered the spare so i was able to compete the seminar. Shure let me down at a very critical time. Quality control or advanced testing of the product would certainly be money well spent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Qualidade Excelente, estrutura frgil. Sem comentrios sobre a qualidade de som, todavia o aparelho veio falhando no momento em que liga e o cabo extremamento fino o que reduz consideravelmente a sua vida til. O microfone no se adapta bem a orelha e quase impossvel deix-lo perto da boca, pois o mesmo fica descendo o tempo todo. A shure deveria rever esse modelo Mx153

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cost effective headworn mic I had these supplied on a job and thought they were a more expensive model. When I discovered the model was less costly than I expected, I was very pleased. I find this a good choice where a cost effective head worn mic is needed. Cheers, db
