Shure WCM16

Condenser Neck Worn MicrophoneThe Shure WCM16 is a neckband microphone with a permanently polarised condenser capsule specially designed for artists, lecture speakers and others, which combine the highest transmission quality with maximum freedom of movement when wirelessly using the microphone. Its large transmission range, low RF sensitivity and reliability even under extreme temperature and humidity conditions make the WCM16 ideal for almost any vocal application. Together with the Shure pocket transmitter, it offers qualities that hardly match the best conventional vocal microphones.

Miniaturised active electronics in the capsule provides for the optimisation of the frequency response in the bass range and provides warmth in the sound that larger microphones develop during close-range. Because of this bass adjustment, it is not necessary to position the microphone directly in front of the mouth, popping and breathing noises are avoided even without a windshield.

The hypercardioid characteristic of the microphone provide maximum isolation from ambient noise and nearby sound sources such as musical instruments, speakers and other artists. This allows for higher gain before feedback without signal loss or distortion of the voice.

Exceptional sound

Laurent K., 19.05.2011
Headset microphone equipped with a capsule wider than many of its competitors. That's why the sound is simply excellent, I have in my panoply, a dpa 4066, aesthetically, for sure the dpa is really more design ... regarding sound, I do not issue any reservations, The shure is clearly above ... the dpa always gives me the impression of singing in a tin can, for the speech, there is no problem, but for the song, it does not suit me.
The default of the shure, although quite acceptable, is the fact that it is more imposing, but that is also why the sound is better.
Regarding the hook (feedback) it is from the greenhouse head, so it goes faster than with a hand microphone, must be a little blunder, but that is ok.

An absolute top head microphone

RüdigerW, 29.08.2013
I bought the Shure as a replacement for the original microscope with the ball characteristics of my Line6 XD-V55HS transmitter system and can say that I am completely satisfied with it. Supersound, print and clear voice and voice transmission.

The sound of the WCM16 keeps with every Beta58. And the best thing is, it is absolutely perfect for the Line6 system, which has the advantage of the digital, future-proof system against the Shure transmitters. The micro fits well and firmly on the head and is sufficiently well adjusted. Why Shure has decided for this perfect micro to this "martial" headband, remains a mystery. Because others make it better and more unobtrusively, even with larger microphone capsules. This is unfortunately a star print. All in all however an unrestricted purchase recommendation, especially for transmitter systems, which offer no capsules with kidney characteristic.

For anyone who has used handheld microphones so far, an unconditional recommendation to try this headset: Absolute freedom with the best sound, best feedback, and almost unbelievable pressure. I've never had a better head microphone in my hands.
