The high output SM63 omnidirectional dynamic microphone is designed for professional applications where sound quality and performance are critical. The frequency response is tailored to maximize speech intelligibility. It also reduces wind and handling noise via a controlled low-frequency roll off. A built-in humbucking coil makes the microphone very resistant to strong hum fields, such as those produced by studio lighting.

The 2.25" Square Microphone Flag fits any size handheld ENG microphone. The flag includes two foam inserts that accommodate various handle sizes. The square area is black and provides sufficient space for a station ID logo.

The Porta Brace MH-2 is a 10" Mic Holster designed to keep your microphone handy and ready to use. It is made of durable, 1000-denier Cordura. There is a short front zipper for securing the microphone in place. It is supplied with two "D" rings for clipping Piggin' Strings (cable ties). It also has a permanently installed cable holder and a belt loop for fastening to a VB-10 Video Belt or similar belt.

Shure SM63 Reviews

Good

Much light and slicker than other popular mic RE50. Handling noise is minimal. Clarity is good, bass is a little less. Standard mic with solid built quality last long years.

Not what I expected

I don't have much experience buying microphones, but my research indicated that this is a good mic from Shure, one of the leaders in the market. The SM63 looks great, is well made and handles well, but it's noisy. I'm running this into a Lectrosonics wireless setup to do roving interviews, and it's just noisy. To make sure it isn't the rest of the setup, I tried an old Azden (granted, a more expensive mic) and it sounded great. So the Sure has been relegated to backup status.

Great value for the price!

After much deliberation in which hand-held microphone to purchase, I eventually settled on the Shure SM63L. Intending to use the microphone in a crowded convention setting, the lack of initial reviews had me a little nervous. I'm happy to report that any doubt was unfounded. While it wasn't used in the very crowded show floor, it was used in slightly less crowded areas and preformed very well. As an Omni microphone, you were able to hear background noise, but the subject speaking was very distinct from other noise. In interviews, the microphone preformed well again, giving good audio when held between subjects. Some volume loss was experienced (and expected) if the microphone wasn't pointed at, or held evenly between subjects. Due to budget and time circumstances, I intended to use this microphone on an XLR splitter with another microphone which required phantom power. Unable to contact Shure before the event, I did not end up utilizing this setup, opting instead to use the mics separately. In speaking with a Shure representative after the event, they assured me this microphone would NOT be damaged by phantom power (Note: Confirm with Shure before attempting). I feel the microphone could use slightly better bass sensitivity, but if the trade-off was less handheld noise (to which this microphone seems very good at preventing) I'm willing to live with that. I'd very highly recommend this microphone for interview and reporting style work and even light/quick voice-over work. Looking forward to using this microphone more in the future.

Good for Electronic News Gathering

We have used dozens of these for electronic news gathering systems (ENG). They are fairly rugged and deliver very good sound quality. The mic element takes a fair amount of abuse, has very good isolation from handling noise, and delivers good levels to ENG cameras without phantom power. The extra length also helps ENG, especially for use with a flag. The only problem with them is that after plugging and unplugging an XLR cable repeatedly, the set screw for the connector tends to loosen. If you don't tighten it, the connector will pull out and ruin the mic. I think they are a little expensive for what they are yet we buy them anyway because they are a really good ENG handheld mic.

It was good quality.

When I first used the SM63L microphone, I wasn't sure that I was using it properly... I plugged the adapter into my Canon 5D MKII and my Canon t3i and went on to record some interviews... when I played back on camera, all you hear is hissing... without wanting to research too much I will assume that the Canon won't playback stereo captured sound. BUT!!!... when I downloaded the video to my laptop for further review, I was immersed in sound... I honestly have to say that the sound over-shadowed my video without a doubt... If you are looking for a microphone that will deliver crisp, clear sound quality, even in the loudest environments (let's say Expos) this is the mic to get.

This mic is similar to the mic used by televangelist Jimmy Schwagart in the late 80s and early 90s the difference is that this mic is modern of the year 2015.

Solid construction and sound

I bought this as an ENG mic so I wouldn't have to have so much hiss from turning up the gain on an SM-58 I had. It produces a bigger sound, but with a similar dryness (which I actually prefer). It compared well to mics like the Beyerdynamic M58, but sounded less bright or metallic with my voice. Like lots of Shure dynamic microphones, it seems pretty indestructable (I haven't pitched it down a flight of stairs just yet, though.) Solidly built, clean sound, and bigger output than most dynamic microphones. I'd buy a second one without hesitation.

question

what kind of receiver is needed/advised? Is a separate transmitter needed?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, This directly connects with xlr audio cable at the bottom. This means the other end will also be an XLR poin. So if your camera supports XLR input it would directly work!
