Excerpt: Like most Shure products, this lecturn mic behaves as advertised right out of the box without any fuss. There are a number of configurations of the same basic unit and it is worth taking the time to be sure you understand the various choices before ordering. But the descriptions are clear and detailed once you get to the comparison page of the online catalog and the range of options will cover a wide variety of situations.
Excerpt: Our church recently purchased this mic and it is great. We use it as our pulpit mic and it is extremely clear. Also, it has a great range to pick up sound. If you stand to the side of the mic it will pick your voice. Great deal for the money. It was more than I expected.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Outstanding performance with very good clean vocal reproduction. Excellent for an Awards show podium. Modular in design. Wish they had a case built for four of these. We had to buy an arrow case to hold the mics and modular parts.
Excerpt: We have owned 2 dozen of these mics for the last 10 years and have just bought another 7. The pickup is great, reliablility is awesome, and the fact that you can remove the bottom cover and switch the settings on it is even better. The 18" neck also lets the mic get close to the speaker and helps avoid issues with feedback.
Excerpt: These are great mics. I use them at board meetings and when people lean back after long meetings, I can still hear them. Also they are resistant to feedback. I bought 15 and feel they are great. I also enjoy the functionality of the switch and how it is a cough switch by default.
Excerpt: This microphone is used on the pulpit in a mid-sized church. It is very sensitive and has excellent sound. It has a few downsides. 1) The rubber isolation sleeve pushed out while inserting the mic and it's difficult to get back into position properly (it's still not right) 2) The gain out of the preamp is set very high. The instructions say that the gain is user selectable but don't count on it.
