Shure Beta 87C

Condenser Vocal MicrophoneBecause of its high precision and detail and its natural vocal reproduction, the Beta 87 is the first choice among artists and professional sound engineers around the world. Under the designation Beta 87C, the classic is now also available with cardioid characteristics.

The Beta 87C is a permanently polarised condensation microphone with a linear transmission range designed specifically for the needs of professional artists using in-ear monitoring systems such as Shure PSM®.

The uniform cardioid characteristics over the entire transmission range very effectively avoid unwanted background noises, which is particularly noticeable to the users of in-ear monitoring systems for irritation in the monitor mix. The result is sound transmission in studio quality.

  • Linear transmission area with easy presence increase
  • Uniform cardioid characteristics over the entire transmission range for isolation of the signal source and minimal off-axis sound colouration
  • Bass reduction compensates for proximity effect
  • Built-in, three-layer windscreen minimises poplaute and breathing noises
  • Operation with phantom power
  • Transmission range: 50 Hz - 20 kHz
  • Noise Sensitivity: -54 dBV / Pa (2 mV)
  • Maximum sound pressure (at 1 kHz, 1 k + load, 0.25% distortion factor): 139 dB SPL
  • Noise (equivalent sound pressure): 22 dB (A)
  • Power supply: 11 to 52V
  • Power consumption: max. 1.2 mA
  • Dimensions (L x Ø): 192 x 51 mm
  • Weight: 207g
  • Incl. Clamp and pocket

Shocked!! (In a good way)

Karlmusic, 23.11.2013
Being a singer myself I have always searched and done some much research into mics and finding the best one.

I have to say with the Shure Beta 87c I think I found It, Surprisingly light and crisp sounding it makes you sound like a true pro.

I was concerned with feedback being a condenser microphone but haven't heard it squeal once, just me ha! ;)

I would highly recommend this mic if you are a true vocalist and want that beautiful pro sound.

Be warned however if your playing pubs with small stages which most of us are, it will pick up the drums and on stage nose very easily and if you use IEM that can be a problem.

But if you are doing an acoustic gig or sitting at a piano singing then this is 100% the microphone you need.

Super Vocal Microphone

StinkePunk, 18.04.2016
For a clearer vocal I wanted to expand my microphone to a capacitor vocal microphone. The Neumann KMS 105 and the Shure Beta 87C input have been added to my shopping cart. The KMS 105 is already very noble and also the included bag is great, while the Shure only have the usual standard pocket. Since my microphones are stored in a special microphone case anyway, this point is not relevant to me. In the Praxistest, both microphones were great. For my taste, the Neumann had a little more presence in the heights, but forgive the Shure some more hiss and breath sounds, which is probably somewhat better for the live everyday. For this reason, our singer preferred the Shure and Neumann came back home. A second, not unimportant factor in this calculation, however, are also the good 100 bells price difference between these two sound transducers.
