The Shure MX415/S 15" Microflex Supercardioid Gooseneck Microphone with Bottom LED and Preamp is a gooseneck microphone with a sleek, low-profile design suitable for use on conference tables, podiums, altars, and lecterns where aesthetics are important. Designed for professional installations, it captures clear speech for presentation and conferencing applications in governmental, institutional, educational, religious, and business settings.
The MX415/S permanently mounts on any flat surface using the included MX400SMP surface mount preamp with LED logic input. The mic can also be used with the MX400DP movable desktop base (available separately), which includes a configurable mute button with logic output. It is also compatible with the MX890 wireless desktop base and the ULXD8 wireless base (both available separately).
The 15", single-section gooseneck design offers some level of flexibility at the top to facilitate positioning. The mic capsule features a supercardioid polar pattern that provides coverage for one person—while helping to reduce unwanted sounds in noisy conference and meeting spaces.
The surface preamp is equipped with an LED logic I/O for remote LED and mute control. When connected to an automatic mixer, the bi-color LED at the bottom of the gooseneck shows the mic's ON/Mute status. A set of dip switches allows you to engage the built-in low-cut filter and attenuate frequencies below 150 Hz. Two rubber rings isolate the mic from vibrations originating from the mounting surface.
The MX415/S features CommShield technology for shielding against RF interference from portable wireless devices. It comes with a snap-fit foam windscreen.
