About the Shure 588SDX

The Shure 588SDX Cardioid Dual Impedance Handheld Dynamic Microphone is a ball-type, dual-impedance, cardioid (unidirectional) dynamic microphone that provides excellent voice reproduction. Its spherical grille is a very effective wind and pop filter, which is especially good when used for close-up vocal miking.

This microphone is highly suited for speech or music pickup in schools, churches and meeting rooms. Its unidirectional polar pattern greatly reduces feedback problems, permitting operation closer than usual to loudspeakers without the annoying squeal or howl caused by feedback. The microphone is equipped with a lockable on/off switch and an internal impedance selection socket located on the XLR connector for switching between high and low impedance. A slip-in swivel adapter is supplied for the convenience of stand-mounted use.
