Presented in a chrome casing with blue foam, the Shure Super 55 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone boasting a classic look and vocal-tailored sound for recording sessions, live stage applications, podcasting, and on-camera use. The dynamic cartridge is shock-mounted to impede handling noise and vibrations transferred through your mic stand. The implementation of a supercardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis noise and ambience, yielding higher gain before feedback and attenuated stage bleed.
The mic delivers a frequency response of 60 Hz to 17 kHz with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6 kHz. Its XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most mixer inputs, microphone preamps, and portable PA systems. The attached, self-tensioning swivel mount can be tilted up to 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward. Chrome-plated, die-cast construction provides tour-worthy durability. It ships with a zippered bag for safe storage.
How it works:
With inner workings that mirror our premium vocal mic — the high-output BETA 58A — the Super 55 pushes the voice as far as the stagecraft. Croon smoother. Add more depth to your drama. However you use the tailored-for-natural-voice response, you’ll have the sound to match the showmanship.
A standout on any stage
The supercardioid directional pattern captures the exact sound you want, regardless of acoustic environment. So it’s perfect for live performance in a variety of venues.
Made to move
The shock-mounted cartridge minimises stand noise. So swing while you sing. It can handle the motion.
Microphones get dropped, tossed and knocked around. We know. We’ve been making them for nearly a century. It’s why we built the Super 55 with a rugged die-cast casing, so it’s always ready for the next show.
