Shure 588 SDX

Dynamic Microphone

The Shure 588SDX is a dynamic microphone with the cardioid polar pattern and selectable impedance that is ideal for reproduction of speech and singing. Its spherical grille is a highly effective wind and pop filter which is especially suitable for close-up vocal miking. The 588SDX is ideal for speech or music pickup in schools, churches and meeting rooms.

Due to its unidirectional polar pattern, feedback problems are reduced very effectively, meaning that it is possible even to use them close to loudspeakers.

The microphone is equipped with a lockable on/off switch and an internal impedance selection socket located on the XLR connector for switching between high and low impedance operation. A swivel adapter is supplied for the convenience of stand-mounted use.

  • Cardioid polar pattern reduces feedback
  • Neodymium magnet for high sensitivity
  • Light bass reduction combined with a soft presence boost delivers clear and comprehensible voice reproduction
  • Spherical grille provides effective protection against breathing and pop noise when used in close proximity and against wind noise when used outdoors
  • Shock-absorbing capsule for quiet operation minimizes impact and handling noise
  • Lockable on/off switch
  • Impedance selectable via internal switch.
  • Robust swivel adapter for tripod mounting
  • Frequency range: 80 Hz - 15 kHz
  • Output impedance selectable: Low impedance (270 Ohm) or high impedance
  • Sensitivity high impedance: -37.0 dBV/Pa (14 mV)
  • Sensitivity low impedance: -55.7 dBV/Pa (1.7 mV)
  • Size: approx. 160 mm long
  • Weight: 315 g

Great Microphone!

Peter H. 314, 14.07.2013
If you're looking for a mic with great quality and you're in the 100EUR price range, this microphone is perfect. In comparison to the SM58 (as can be seen in comparing the specs), this microphone doesn't give as loud amplification, but when plugged into any decent PA or Amp, I have used it to great effect in plenty of gigs. I would even place this as better than the SM58 LC (the next mic up), simply due to the present of an on and off switch. Would definitely recommend this microphone, no doubt.
