The SM86cardioid (uni-directional) condenser handheld microphone from Shure is ideal for live and recording applications. The cardioid pattern is effective in reducing ambient, off-axis noise making it a suitable option for use near stage monitors, loud instruments, etc. The condenser element requires between 11 to 52 Volts DC phantom power and produces a sensitivity far greater than that of dynamic microphones. Condenser elements provide higher output levels, frequency response, and dynamic range resulting in studio-level sonic quality.
Featuring a built-in 3-stage shock-mount minimizes handling noise while an internal windscreen reduces noise caused by wind and breath sounds. It's rugged metal construction is made to withstand the rigors of daily use.
