Shure has updated its low-profile WL18Xm professional lavalier condenser microphones, including the cardioid WL185m, supercardioid WL184m, and omnidirectional WL183m, for use with wireless bodypack transmitters.

Supercardioid WL184mThe refreshed portfolio builds on the legacy and performance of existing Shure WL lavalier microphone technology with an improved presence response for speech and presentation applications in corporate, education and worship environments.

‘Our WL series has been the go-to lavalier solution for decades, known for reliability, durability, and full, accurate sound,’ says Shure Senior Director of Professional Audio Products, Nick Wood. ‘As wireless technology continues to improve, we saw an opportunity to innovate and evolve the industry-standard WL line into a product that meets the requirements of professionals using today’s modern, digital systems. We’re introducing a product that users already know and love, now with lower self-noise, improved RF immunity, higher dynamic range, and improved max SPL.’

The WL18Xm line is 8mm shorter than its predecessor, making it lighter, lower-profile, and easier to use. For flexible placement on speakers, presenters, and performers, each lavalier is available in either black or white with Lemo or TA4F connector options. The microphone’s tie clip can be rotated in 90° intervals for accurate positioning.

The WL18Xm professional low-profile lavalier condenser microphone line is available now. Users can choose between three polar patterns – the WL185m (Cardioid), WL184m (Supercardioid) and WL183m (Omnidirectional) – and two connector options, Lemo or TA4F. Shure wireless systems, including BLX, GLX-D+, and SLX-D, will be available bundled with WL18Xm later in 2024.

WL18Xm lavaliers with TA4F connections are available starting at US$139 and lavaliers with Lemo connections are available for US$159. Purchase includes the choice of a black or white lavalier, tie clip, snap-fit foam windscreen, and zippered storage bag.
