The Shure WCM16 headworn condenser microphone is intended for professional use with wireless bodypack systems and offers the highest quality of sound resembling the finest conventional vocal microphones. The WCM16 can be used in different radio systems. The WCM16 microphone is ideally suited to professional performers, lecturers, and others who require the highest quality voice pickup with maximum mobility. Its wide frequency response, low RF susceptibility and reliable operation at temperature and humidity extremes make the WCM16 suitable for virtually any vocal application.
Miniaturised active circuitry included in the cartridge assembly provides equalisation that tailors the low-frequency response to resemble the warm proximity effect of larger vocal microphones. Because of this low-end response, it is not necessary to position the microphone directly in front of the mouth, thus avoiding popping and breath noise, even without the supplied foam pop screen. The microphone's hypercardioid unidirectional pickup pattern provides maximum isolation from ambient noise and from adjacent sound sources such as musical instruments, loudspeakers and other performers. This permits higher gain-before-feedback without loss or masking of vocals.
