Chicago, IL (April 29, 2022)—Shure unveiled the KSM11, a new high-end condenser microphone capsule designed to produce natural, transparent and crystal-clear sound reproduction without the need for additional processing when used in applications such as performance/ live recording, broadcasting, simulcasting and live streaming.

Designed to combine the full bass and clear midrange typically found in dynamic microphones with the high-end detail characteristics of condenser microphones, the KSM11 provides a high level of off-axis rejection and shock isolation for reduce handling noise. A dent-resistant hardened steel grille includes a three-stage pop filter to reduce plosives. The KSM11 is meant to maintain clarity even when performers hold the mic in their hands.

The capsule uses a proprietary ¾-inch electret condenser capsule with a uniform cardioid polar pattern that reduces off-axis phase distortion. Specifications include a frequency response of 50 to 20,000 Hz, a maximum SPL of 151 dB, a signal-to-noise ratio of 71.5 dB, a dynamic range of 128.5 dB, a self-noise of 22.5 dB ( A-weighted) and a clipping level of 10 dBV. Specifications are based on a 5 VDC power supply from any compatible Shure handheld wireless transmitter.

The capsule can be used with Shure Axient Digital, ULX-D, QLX-D and SLX-D digital wireless systems. It comes in black or nickel finishes and weighs 5.23 ounces, giving a smaller and lighter footprint compared to other wireless pods.

The MSRP for the KSM11 is $899. More information here.
