Manufacturer's Description from Shure

The premium KSM8 Dualdyne Cardioid Vocal Dynamic Microphone is a groundbreaking feat of engineering design as the world’s first-ever dual-diaphragm dynamic handheld microphone. Meticulously crafted for revolutionary vocal reproduction and sound-reinforcement control for world-class live performance in top-tier professional venues. Featuring the single purest cardioid polar pattern that Shure has developed to date, the patented Dualdyne cartridge of the KSM8 virtually eliminates proximity effect and masters off-axis rejection while providing sound professionals the signal clarity typical of condenser microphones without processing, along with the reliability of dynamic microphone feedback control.

Here are a few more of the technological advancements that make the KSM8 Dualdyne a game-changer in live sound:
  • Unmatched control of proximity effect means a huge sweet spot
  • Accurate, flat frequency response greatly minimized the need for EQ and processing
  • Truest cardioid polar pattern available controls bleed for a more natural sound
     

How it Works

Dent Resistant, hardened carbon steel grille

Lined with hydrophobic woven fabric for exceptional protection against wind, plosives and water, the KSM8 Dualdyne grille is durability redefined.

Patent-pending diaphragm stabilization system

Protecting and stabilizing the active diaphragm during plosives and impact, the DSS greatly reduces high-frequency handling noise.

Patented cartridge design with two ultra-thin diaphragms and reverse airflow

Controlled proximity effect vastly increases the working distance without on-axis coloration, delivering the most accurate frequency response available in a dynamic microphone.

Reimagined Shure pumping pneumatic shock mount

An elaborate architecture of tuned cavities, specific resistances, and precisely machined components is fully integrated into the cartridge’s acoustic properties, dramatically reducing handling noise without loss of low-end response.

Accessories

Includes zipper bag, microphone clip, and user guide. Wireless microphones also include 2 AA batteries.

Replacement grilles and cartridges available separately for wired and wireless models. Zippered carrying case also available separately.
