BETA 54 Wired Headworn Vocal Microphone
WBH54 Wireless Headworn Vocal Microphone

The Shure BETA®54 is a subminiature, electret condenser headworn microphone. It provides uncompromised sound quality and reliability with minimal visibility in applications such as broadcast, theater, and touring. Despite the small size, the condenser element delivers full, clear, and natural reproduction of speech and vocals. 

The microphone features a durable, low-profile wire frame headband which is fully adjustable for stability and comfort. A plastic carrying case protects the microphone and its accessories. 

The Beta 54 now features improved RF immunity against cellular and RF devices.
