Product Description

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. 

Shure 55SH II Dynamic Vocal Microphone Features

  • Classic appearance, modern performance
  • Frequency response tailored for speech, vocals and instrumental music
  • Cardioid directional pattern for optimum performance in adverse acoustic environments
  • Shock-mounted cartridge minimizes stand-transmitted noise, ensures quiet operation
  • Rugged die cast case and mechanical design for reliability under rigorous conditions
  • Self-tensioning swivel mount, permits tilting through 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward
55SH Series II Includes Swivel Stand Mount Base, On-Off Switch
The 55SH Series II from Shure has a low-impedance balanced output designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms. The mic features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, an On/Off switch, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8 inch-27 thread swivel mount. The 55SH II mic is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.

My Baby II
What is your opinion of this product?
My last SHURE 55SH gave me over 10 years of service (lots of gigs, travel to gigs and the occasional drops). I upgraded to wireless BUT bought this again; this is a GREAT microphone WITH an On/Off switch. It also looks great in photos (photographers love it too).

Shure 55SH II Review
Solid, good 'ole fashioned from back in the day mic. It has a heavy casing that doesn't "feel" delicate. It also has modern technology so the sound is not too difficult to "shape". I haven't had it for very long, but with proper care and storage, this mic "feels" like it could last forever.
Solid built with a good weight, this mic looks both great and sounds great. This thing will last forever if properly used, maintained, and stored. Can't think of anything I would change. If so, then I would've bought another type or model.
Plug and play. Like all condenser mics; though, you have to have phantom power and a pre-amp specifically for this one to be utilized properly. However, if you bought this mic, then you should have the knowledge how to use it as it isn't a "beginner's" mic.
I have a Behringer PMP3000 and it sounds pretty good coming out of that with an old Peavy 15" black widow cabinet w/out the horn. My girlfriend's voice is a sultry deep and mids tone which sounded really good with this despite no horn/tweeter. For a live open mic jam test, I connected a pre-amp to push the sound and the results far exceeded both our expectations. You could literally feel her voice's natural gutterals. Most mics change a voice or distort it, but this sounded like it had a nice warm natural feel to it.

Great mic
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
right wheni opened the package, i knew that this was going to be far cry from the mics i was used to, it was just built better

FEATURES:
the best feature is that it looks so damn cool

EASE OF USE:
it's just about as simple as it gets, plug it in, turn it on and it's good to go

VALUE:
i think that this was well worth $160, especially because XXXX had it for $220, but i don't know how much more i would pay for it

SOUND:
i thought that the mic sounded really good, and it just made my band sound a little better

STYLE:
punk/ska

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
school jazz band, 2 bands of my own, about 1 and a half years

Shure is where they are because of Mics like this
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Absolutely solid. I still treat it softer than my own guitar, but a solidly built mic.

FEATURES:
Less is more and this has plenty. On/Off switch with a shielded back for live use. Pretty simple.

EASE OF USE:
This is a bit tricky. If you move to the right or left or don't sing directly into it, you lose volume and clarity. But with a little time and practice, you can get the volume on the the sound board adjusted so that is not an issue and you can use those things to your benefit. This mic sounds the sweetest when you're in its grill truckin' away.

VALUE:
The price is a bit high, but most good items are priced high. I must admit I paid the price because of the name and the look and time will tell if the value is there, but Shure has been the defining manufacturers of high quality mics for decades, so I don't see any trouble. Ask me in 5 years after consistent performing and I will have an answer for you. So
