    Cartridge Type Electret condenser
    Frequency Response 70 to 16,000 Hz
    Polar Pattern Cardioid
    Output Impedance 180 Ω
    Sensitivity At 1 kHz, open circuit voltage: -33 dBV/Pa (22 mV)

    1 Pa = 94 dB SPL

    Maximum SPL 1 kHz at 1% THD: 120 dB SPL

    THD of microphone preamplifier when applied input signal level is equivalent to cartridge output at the specified SPL.

    Signal to Noise Ratio Referenced at 94 dB SPL @ 1 kHz: 67 dB

    S/N ratio is the difference between 94 dB SPL and equivalent SPL of self noise, A-weighted

    Dynamic Range 93 dB
    Self Noise Equivalent SPL, A-weighted (typical): 27 dB SPL
    Common Mode Rejection >45 dB (10 Hz to 100 kHz)
    Clipping Level Preamplifier Output 1 kHz @ 1% THD: -7 dBV
    Polarity Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3
    Power Requirement 11 to 52 VDC, 2.0 mA

    All specifications measured with a 48 VDC phantom power supply. The microphone operates at lower voltages, but with slightly decreased headroom and sensitivity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mic! We use this in our high-ceiling, 100 year-old church/worship hall that can be a difficult room to obtain optimal sound reinforcement. This mic replaced our much older Shure model that was only about 12 and the results are night and day. The 18 Shure really grabs the voice and channels it better than I expected. One of the reasons is that the extra length puts the mic closer to the reader's mouth (It also comes with a mounting base that you can drill/bolt onto a podium at the ideal spot for you). It is an excellent choice for having various readers each church mass, because there's no need to constantly adjust the sound. Even when readers forget to move the mic in the direction of their mouth (for excessively tall or short people) the mic still picks up beautifully. On that topic, when moving the mic, there is no noise picked up, so you can position it silently with no problem and without the need to mute the channel. Our sound system consists of a pair QSC KW 122s and now a 2nd pair of QSC K10's, routed through a DBX 231 eq and a Mackie ProFX 12 mixer with phantom power, which this mic requires. Pretty basic stuff, but highly effective at pushing sound for about 125-150 people. The reason I mention our system is that this mic will surely perform differently in different rooms.The only drawback is that depending on your speaker placement and what other mics you are using in the room (lavalieres for example), you may experience some feedback at higher levels because it really picks up a lot. So, with some care and consideration about such things, you can try to reduce or eliminate the other channels/sound going into this mic and creating a feedback loop. This mic's technology seems to be far superior to the older model, so it does a cleaner job of grabbing what you want and not what you don't. I highly recommend it, especially for churches or podium situations.
