Product Details

With two ultra-thin diaphragms and groundbreaking reverse airflow technology, the KSM8 Dualdyne™ delivers unmatched control of proximity effect, presence peaks, and bleed and requires minimal EQ and processing.

Handheld microphone for live vocals and presentations
Dualdyne dynamic cartridge with cardioid polar pattern
Available in black and brushed nickel; wireless versions available for UHF-R®, ULX-D® and QLX-D® systems
Includes KSM8, clip, carrying case, and user guide


Patented cartridge design features two ultra-thin diaphragms (one active and one passive) and a groundbreaking inverted airflow system

Exceptional control of proximity effect greatly increases working distance without on-axis coloration

Neutral mid- and high-frequency reproduction due to controlled proximity effect results in the most natural-sounding dynamic microphone available

Neodymium magnet resides in a micro-injection mold of aerospace SoftMag material, maximizing the magnetic field for the highest output level

Re-imagined Shure Pumping Pneumatic Shock Mount features tuned cavities, specific resistances, and precisely machined components fully integrated into the cartridge’s acoustic properties, delivering exceptional rejection of handling noise without any loss of low-frequency response

Patent-pending Diaphragm Stabilization System technology protects and stabilizes the active diaphragm from unwanted movement from plosives or impact

Dent-resistant, hardened carbon-steel grille design lined with hydrophobic woven fabric provides exceptional water, plosive and wind protection
