Shure WL93 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

This Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is designed for speech applications where a visually unobtrusive clear sounding microphone is favorable.

Shure WL93 Microphones are economical omnidirectional, subminiature, lavalier, condenser microphones designed for general speech applications where a visually unobtrusive microphone is desirable. All Shure WL93 models are supplied with a mounting block with attached tie bar, a sew-on mounting bracket, and an acoustic windscreen to minimize wind noise in outdoor applications. All Shure WL93 models include a cable terminated with a 4-pin mini connector which connects directly to a Shure wireless body-pack transmitter.


- Subminiature lavalier design; ideal size for theater, television, broadcasting, video, film, and sound reinforcement
- Small, inconspicuous mounting hardware
- Full, clear sound comparable to larger microphones
- Smooth extended frequency response with presence rise specially tailored for chest-worn microphone operation
- Controlled low-frequency rolloff reduces low-frequency clothing and room noise
- Low distortion, wide dynamic range
- Uniform omnidirectional polar pattern
- Preamplifier assembly (SM93) can be pocketed, strapped to the body, or clipped to belt or waistband
- Wide-range phantom powering (SM93) accepts all commonly used voltages

Used in a high school production of "Grease" - plugged it into a Line 6 wireless transmitter and it worked perfectly. The talent sound great, no issues with feedback. Taped the mic to her cheek and could not really see it unless you knew what to look for. I'll be buying more.
