Dynamic Vocal Microphone "Elvis Mic"

The 55SH Series II sports the distinctive UNIDYNE® II design, which has been for more than 60 years a symbol of the stage and show business. The microphone combines the nostalgia of the 50s and 60s with modern transducer technology and Shure's typical presence boost, making it an excellent choice for vocals. Via the cardioid polar pattern, it isolates the sound source very effectively against incoming sound from the rear of the microphone, so that there is little risk of feedback from nearby speakers. The 55SH Series II can also be used under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones can not be used.

The low-impedance, balanced output of the 55SH Series II is suitable for connection to microphone inputs from 75 to 300 ohms. The microphone is equipped with a shock mount against impact sound, an on/off switch, and a threaded and adjustable swivel adapter. The 55SH Series II is ideal for use in PA or theatre sound reinforcement, and also for broadcasting- and television productions, studio recording, and other audio applications where a microphone is desired in a classic style.

  • Wide cardioid polar pattern
  • On/Off switch
  • Stand connector
  • Classic visual appearance - modern performance
  • Optimised frequency range for speech and vocals
  • Cardioid polar pattern for optimal performance in unfavorable acoustic conditions.
  • Shock mount for reduced sound impact and undisturbed operation.
  • Solid diecast aluminium housing and a robust construction for reliable operation even under the harshest conditions.
  • Self-tensioning swivel adapter allows for a max. 45 degree forward tilt, and backwards by 80 degrees.
  • Frequency range: 50 Hz - 15 kHz
  • Output impedance: 150 Ohm
  • Sensitivity: -58.0 dBV / Pa (1.3 mV)
  • Size: About 188 mm in length
  • Weight: 624 g

All I Expected Was Delivered

13.02.2017
It's such a beautifully designed microphone and the quality of the manufacture is excellent. It's iconic presence probably makes it a tad overpriced. But I've been using the microphone constantly during January and February 2017 and the regular use has increased my skill in the most effective way to use it. It's not necessary to get too close as long as there is sufficient gain - but not too much. The only hint of feedback was when my headphones brush the mike as I was reaching across to continue the recording session.
My guess is that the original mike of 60 years ago was bigger. The size and aesthetic beauty of the latest model is perfect for me. My only cautionaly note for those wishing to buy one is to be careful when buying a mike stand to suit the SH55, the locking screw on the K&M 260/1 stand is too wide for the mike to be fully screwed onto the the stand with the inserted K&M 215 adapter. I can still use the Mike for studio work - but would want to be careful of the choice of stand - or file down the perimeter of the locking screw by a millimeter - for on the road gigs.

Classic look with Shure Reliability

paulhcctt, 20.04.2017
OK, So i'm in a rock band, surely you would think that this mic would be more suited to the classic crooners...

How wrong you would be!!

If it's good enough for James Hetfield, it's good enough for me!

MIc sounds amazing and cuts through the mix with minimal of compression. Bands singers all use one now and we are loving these every night
