Shure Highlights R189 Mini-Shotgun Microphone Cartridge

“Mini-Shotgun Mic” Prevents Feedback and Rejects Unwanted Ambient Room Noise

AMSTERDAM, February 5, 2019—Today at ISE, Shure unveiled the R189 lobar “mini-shotgun” microphone cartridge that threads on to all its Microflex® goosenecks and overhead microphones, delivering intelligible speech in even noisy and complex environments.

The new R189 mini-shotgun microphone cartridge features a narrow, highly directional pickup pattern that is ideal for isolating talkers in conference rooms and live presentations or performances where there is a sound reinforcement system. With slim dimensions (1 centimeter, 0.45” x 4.2”) and a subtle design, the R189 attractively integrates with goosenecks on a table or lectern, and with hanging mics above a choir or ensemble.

“We specifically engineered the R189 mini-shotgun microphone cartridge to provide our customers with an additional solution in our award-winning Microflex portfolio,” said Doug Daube, Associate Category Director of Networked Systems at Shure. “In noisy or reverberant environments, a focused pickup pattern delivers superior audio quality, which is paramount for a good listener experience. When used in podium and table-top applications, these mics perform well from a distance, allowing them to be discreet while delivering remarks. The R189 design ensures that our customers can easily customize how they want to enhance existing Microflex installations.”

The R189 mini-shotgun microphone cartridge will be available early 2019.
