One of the best podium microphones I have found.

Summary: The key feature on this microphone is get one with the WL-185 cardiod microphone element. The Shure WL-185 cardioid microphone element shows up in a number of Shure microphone models, including lapel style mics, conference style mics, and this MX418 goose neck style podium microphone. The WL-185 microphone element is very natural sounding and can be EQ'd to eliminate feedback problems, while still sounding very natural.
Excerpt: I was asked to buy a vocal mic for our Church service. During a usual Sunday we have a few different people who speaker with a variety of vocal tones. The Shure MX418DC with its 18" gooseneck is sensitive and forgiving. It picks up the soft speakers and handles our Pastors big booming voice with very little adjustment to the actual sound system. It also has an off and on switch on the base that easily mutes sound.
Excerpt: I recently replaced my Beyer Dynamic microphones with these microphones and they have been a hit. I use the miorophones when we do our monthly Board meetings at remote sites. The on/off switch is a hit with the members instead of them fumbling with a toggle switch. Great product and the ease of use has made my operation a lot easier.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
