Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 Handheld Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
The Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 is a handheld cardioid dynamic microphone offering high-feedback immunity and voice-tailored sound for vocals, speech, and instruments in studios, houses of worship, corporate events, and live stage applications. The element features a dynamic moving coil, which requires no external power. Its cardioid polar pattern attenuates off-axis noise caused by sources such as monitors, additional instruments, and room ambience, allowing high gain before feedback.The Ultravoice XM8500 produces a frequency response of 50 Hz to 15 kHz with a high-frequency boost for increased vocal presence. Its dynamic capsule provides a high-output level and utilizes a shock-isolation system to reduce handling noise. Plosives and wind noise are minimized via the integrated two-stage pop filter. The gold-plated XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most microphone preamps and mixer inputs, and the metal body with a steel grille provides road-ready protection and durability. The Ultravoice XM8500 ships with a mic stand adapter and an impact-resistant carrying case.
Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 15' (4.6 m), Black
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (15') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
Auray WHF-158 Foam Windscreen for 1-5/8" Diameter Microphones (Black)
The black Auray WHF Series Foam Windscreens are designed to reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.
This WHF-158 Foam Windscreen is designed for use with many common handheld microphones with a 1-5/8" diameter head. The density of the specialty acoustic foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.
When used on a handheld microphone, this windscreen is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in calm to light breeze conditions (0-7mph), and can be used indoors for protection against drafts caused by air-conditioners. Users can generally expect a 4dB to 8dB reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the very slight high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the notable wind noise reduction.
The WHF-158's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Shure, Electro-Voice, AKG, Audio-Technica, Audix, Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Neumann and others.
The WHF-158 Foam Windscreen for 1-5/8" Diameter Microphones is an effective solution for basic wind protection.
