SHURE INTRODUCES KSM11: THE STATE-OF-THE-ART WIRELESS MICROPHONE CAPSULE FOR DELIVERING BROADCAST QUALITY VOCAL CLARITY

Shure will be showcasing their new KSM11 Wireless Vocal Microphone Capsule, at NAMM 2022, in Anaheim, CA. The Company’s new state-of-the-art premium condenser microphone transducer technology purports an elegant combination of low and mid-range clarity and essential high-end detail. The KSM11 cardioid condenser microphone was developed to take advantage of increased digital audio linearity – equal output across the frequency range. Specifically, the KSM11 provides the most natural, transparent, and high-clarity sound without necessitating the use of additional processing for on-the-spot interviews, live productions, broadcast, simulcast, and live-streamed performances.

Available in black and brushed nickel finishes for use on Shure wireless handheld transmitters, this next generation in the KSM line benefits from a lighter, streamlined design. With specifically developed microphone technology for wireless, the KSM11 transducer is outfitted with a ¾” gold diaphragm and premium electronics for industry-leading dynamic range. The KSM11 accurately presents artists’ vocals with unprecedented clarity and virtually zero handling noise, thanks to its advanced suspended isolation system.

“Through our strong relationships with customers and engineers, we learned exactly what artists need in a top-tier condenser vocal microphone. No detail was overlooked. That’s why the KSM11 is so exceptional,” shared John Born, Associate Director, Global Product Management, at Shure. “When coupled with our industry-leading digital wireless, the KSM11 delivers vocals in the purest form, freeing the engineer to build their mix around the most important channel on their desk – the artist.”

KSM11’s key benefits for professional users:

  • Proprietary wireless condenser capsule using a ¾” gold diaphragm and premium electronics for exceptional dynamic range and transient response
  • Highly consistent, deep cardioid polar pattern reduces off-axis phase distortion for pristinely focused vocal reproduction to provide rich and full low frequency response, linear and transparent mid-range and natural high-end detail
  • Streamlined design for an overall smaller and lighter capsule footprint
  • Advanced suspended isolation system for virtually zero handling noise
  • Dent-resistant hardened steel grille with 3-stage plosive reduction pop filtering for consistent, artifact-free vocals
  • Available in black or brushed nickel finish for use with compatible Shure handheld wireless transmitters.
