Shure BLX Series Microphones
The Shure BLX series microphones deliver a premium sound in the world of microphones, but they also come at a premium price tag. Starting at $299 and up to $599, you certainly get what you pay for. Shure’s BLX series microphones are a very popular choice for their ease of use, and reliability.
The BLX features include:
- Up to 12 compatible systems per frequency band (region dependent)
- One-touch QuickScan frequency selection quickly locates the best open frequency in case of interference
- Up to 14 hours of continuous use from 2 AA batteries (included)
- Up to 300 ft (91 m) operating range for total wireless freedom
- XLR and ¼" output connectors
- Rugged and reliable Shure construction
- Legendary Shure microphones options featuring integrated microphone capsule design
This system includes the BLX24 or the BLX24R (The BLR24R is rack mountable) recievers, handheld transmitters including the legendary SM58, Beta58, or PG58 mic heads, or a bodypack transmitter that can be used with a lavelier, headworn, or instrument microphone.
While using this system, I was very pleased with the ease of use, and the quick setup. The system automatically scans for the best channel to use. and automatically syncs with the microphone. Signal on this system is rock solid. While using this system me and my team never lost signal or had interruptions. This system’s range paired with Shure’s UHF antenna distribution system made our signal even more reliable. Multiple systems can be connected through the distribution system so you have only 2 antennas for your whole rack thanks to shure’s UHF Antenna Distribution System.
The sound on this system was great. My team’s configuration was with the SM58 mic head. This microphone can pick up anything from the quietest of talkers, to the most powerful of singers.
The build quality on this system is also great. Both the handheld transmitter and the bodypack had a very durable soft-touch plastic material. Although I wouldn’t advise it, but if you drop your equipment, it will be just fine. the battery life is also pretty good. even if your talents aren’t that good at turning off your microphones, you should get a pretty solid battery life.
I really couldn’t find anything to complain about with this system. Its reliable, it sounds good, the equipment is durable, I don’t know what else I could ask for. This system is truly a great buy, and from a reliable brand.
