This wireless package is designed for presenters who want the microphone to "disappear" on stage. The Shure MX153 is a beige-colored earset with a slender shaft and a tiny mic element. It is ideal for musical theater, plays, teleconferencing, church audio and business presentations. The BLX14R/MX53 system is additionally equipped with the BLX bodypack transmitter and the BLX4R rackmount wireless receiver.

The BLX series bodypack transmitter works with lavalier and headset microphones, and also works for guitar with the appropriate cable connector. The beltpack features an On/Off hard toggle switch, preferring to eliminate the multi-function push button that is used on some wireless transmitters. Many users found the multi-function single button to be inconvenient and unreliable.

The BLX4R reciever includes all of the hardware you need to install this system into a road rack. It is a true diversity two-antenna system with channel scan and XLR and 1/4" outputs.

    Comments about Shure BLX14R/MX53 Wireless Headset System with MX153 Headset Mic:

    I was working with a church that needed to replace their current wireless headset system that they were using for their pastor's mics. I spent a fair amount of time researching to see if I could get just the body pack and receiver so that we could use a Countryman mic. Unable to find such a combination, I decided to try the BLX14R/MX53, figuring that if the church didn't like it, it was a good price for the receiver and transmitter, and we could just keep the mic as a spare and replace it with a countryman. But the church loved the mic itself and now wants to order more of them. They are a bit unique to EQ, and potentially a bit more susceptible to feedback than some Countryman mics, but the pastor is able to walk under and in front of the mains with no issues.

    Comments about Shure BLX14R/MX53 Wireless Headset System with MX153 Headset Mic:

    Great sound but VERY fragile. Lasted two events. Headset mics are ten times better than laveliers for conference speakers. However, they are so brittle. Get a Countryman or DPA with your Shure or Sennheiser base and take GOOD care of them. Watch em like a hawk. Remember, most speakers are NOT seasoned mic users, they wander in front of speakers, they fiddle, and they fondle the mic. Get a DPA or Countryman.
