Shure says its latest podium mic, the Microflex MX415Dual, is aiming to be a standout with two condenser cartridges for “delivering reliable, high-quality audio for high-stake moments.” The dual elements allow for more than one feed, for instance, a house feed and a multbox or broadcast feed. Or if one fails or is damaged there is another to carry on.
The MX415 is mounted on a 15-inch gooseneck. It has a cardioid pattern though the cartridges are swappable with other Microflex cartridges of different patterns.
It outputs to twin 5-foot (1.5 meter) cables exiting from the bottom of mic, terminating in two TQG 4-pin female connectors that can connect to included in-line mic preamps with XLR connectors.
There is an integrated shockmount to minimize podium noise, foam windscreen and mesh ball grille along with communications RF shielding to go after mobile phone interference. It ships with mounting accessories.
