New Gear: Shure Headset Microphones


Shure builds on its SM microphone line with two new headset microphones: the SM31FH Fitness Headset Condenser Microphone for fitness instructors and the SM35 Performance Headset Condenser Microphone for live sound applications. Both these headset microphones have condenser capsules for accurate pickup of every vocal nuance.

The orange color SM31FH comes as a wearable, cardioid condenser microphone that features a hydrophobic fabric that repels moisture and protects the microphone cartridge from corrosion caused by sweat. With a lightweight construction, secure fit, and low-profile form factor, the microphone is built to provide crystal-clear audio for extended hours of continuous use in fitness studios and gymnasiums.

The SM35 Performance Headset Microphone comes in a stealthy gray color and offers multi-instrumentalists full hands-free freedom without having to sacrifice sound quality—singers are never off-mic.

Both the SM35 and SM31H sell for $99 MAP each and are offered for use with the BLX Wireless System, GLX-D Digital Wireless System and ULX-D® Digital Wireless System (SM35 only).
