Microflex® Lavalier microphones bring a new level of sophistication to personal voice reproduction. Like all Microflex family microphones, the Lavaliers use Shure's interchangeable condenser cartridges, available in cardioid, supercardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns. That means you can be sure there is a Microflex Lavalier that's right for your application.  Compatible with all Shure wireless bodypack transmitters, their high sensitivity and wide frequency response guarantee great sound.

Application
Microphone Type

Condenser:

Lightweight, sensitive diaphragm. Precisely and smoothly captures sound nuances. Powered by battery or phantom power supply.

Polar Pattern

Cardioid:

Picks up the most sound in front of the microphone and some from the sides. Less susceptible to feedback in high volume environments.

OmniDirectional:

Equally sensitive to sound from all directions, but cannot be "aimed" to isolate one area.

SuperCardioid:

Screens unwanted sound sources. Ideal for individual instruments in a multi-microphone setting, or single sources in noisy environments.

Frequency Response

Tailored:

Smooth, extended response. Tuned to accentuate specific types of instruments or voices.
