CommShield technology keeps your signal clean

Sure Microflex MX153

The pastor in our church likes to move around a lot when he preaches and this little ear set was perfect. The lapel mic made a lot of noise moving around. The sound is much better and is easier to use. You don't have to hunt for a place to hang it on your clothing. We are very pleased with our and the Sweetwater people. they are the greatest. They don't just sell you stuff and forget you! They all you to make sure everything was OK with your purchase!

Works GREAT for vocals

I was hesitant to purchase this mic based on the fact that most reviews were for speaking. I almost spent double the money to purchase the Countryman E6i, but I was being cheap so got this one.....I am not sorry! It delivers amazingly clear vocals throughout the dynamic range, from our bass singer through our sopranos. It is light weight, so I barely notice it is there. Despite it being only a single over-ear mic, it holds its position well, even when the singer is extremely active.Negatives? The thickness (or lack thereof) of the wire is cause for concern. I keep this mic in the included case at all times when not in use as I am afraid of the wires is not replaceable like the one on the Countryman. Also, I know this could be said about any microphone, but this one seems especially sensitive around active monitors. I have not seemed to have any issues around non-powered stage monitors.Overall, this mic provides amazing "bang-for-the-buck". GET ONE!

Great little mike

Excellent mike. It has smooth frequency response so the audio sounds natural. It fits comfortably around the ear according to my performers, even to those who wear glasses. It's very light and stays in place. (If the performer is a dancer you might want to use some transparent medical tape as a guarantee against slippage.) It works without distortion even when used by a trained soprano singing forte. I am using several of these mikes with both my Shure PGX and my Shure PG4 body pack transmitters. Comes well protected in a hard case. At the end of the show, just put it in the case and throw it in with the rest of your small gear.

Shure Quality

We purchased this mic to use with a Line 6 XD-V55 body pack as the supplied headset is a little hard to get adjusted and due to the wrap around design is not very friendly to use for those with longer hair.While there is a difference of a few decibels in sensitivity between the two this mic performs very well with the body pack. We actually favor this one slightly over the other due to it's fuller vocal mid-range reproduction.We use this live for services at our church as well as capturing a secondary audio feed for rebroadcast and have had are pleased with it's performance in both applications. Kudos to Shure on continuing to provide quality affordable mics at a price most can afford.
