The Shure 55SH II Dynamic Vocal Microphone provides the Shure classic UNlDYNE II design coupled with modern acoustic components to meet today's performance standards. The 55SH II microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic Shure presence peak.
The 55SH Series II microphone has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows the Model 55SH Series II to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot.
