Engineered to exacting standards, the KSM9 reveals nuance and subtlety in a microphone optimized for the most demanding live environments. With its dual diaphragm design and switchable polar patterns (super-cardioid/cardioid), the KSM9 is the choice for the world's most accomplished vocal performances.
The Shure KSM9 wired handheld is a beautiful sounding, multi-pattern condenser microphone. It is has been designed to bring studio-grade vocal mic’ing to the stage. Although switchable between cardioid and super-cardioid pickup patterns, the KSM9 maintains a relatively identical frequency response on the different patterns (50Hz – 20kHz). Allowing the user to select the best pattern for performance without juggling sound. Great Max SPL (152dB) for even the louder voices on stage and virtually response resistant to proximity effect and mic cupping. Using the KSM9 with a higher quality sound system will make it noticeably different than say a Beta 87A.
