Shure has revealed its new line of subminiature (5mm) omnidirectional lavalier and headset microphones.
The TwinPlex line has new patent pending capsule technology that offers an easy-to-conceal package, designed for quick costume changes and discrete under-wardrobe placing without compromising sound quality.
Developed with input from leading audio professionals, TwinPlex supports the diverse needs of theatre, broadcast, film and television and corporate presentations.
TwinPlex consists of four lavaliers (TL45, TL46, TL47, TL48) and an ultra-light, fully-adjustable headset microphone (TH53) in multiple colours with extensive accessories and options. The dual-diaphragm omnidirectional design yields off-axis consistency and low self-noise creating vocal clarity and warmth.
Available in 1.1mm and 1.6mm options, the paintable cables are immune to kinks and memory effects, resulting in high flex performance due to an innovative spiral construction with redundant shielding.
The superhydrophobic coating and interchangeable sweat-resistant frequency caps keep perspiration and moisture from upstaging the audio while the medical-grade cable technology flexes to fit the costume design and demanding schedules that often come with associated uses.
Shure senior global product manager John Born says the research stage of production was extensive to make sure TwinPlex would be fully ready.
“This resulted in a comprehensive portfolio of more than 60 versions in a variety of colour, connector, cable, frequency response and sensitivity to meet the demands of any application when you need amazing sound quality and unprecedented durability,” he says.
Shure is distributed in Australia by Jands.
