  • Passive back diaphragm delivers exceptional control of low frequency proximity effect
  • Tailored low-frequency roll-off minimizes low frequency room noise
  • Integrated three-stage mesh grille guards against wind and breath noise
  • Open cage ShureLock® rubber suspension shock mount with low-profile Popper Stopper™ magnetic pop filter produces a natural space between performer and microphone
  • Prethos™ Advanced Preamplifier Technology exhibits extremely low self-noise with superior dynamic range, transient response and ultra-low distortion for transparent recording
