collapse expand iconDescription

The KSM8 Dualdyne cardioid, dynamic vocal microphone excels at vocal reproduction with crystal-clear acoustics, to give you an excellent live performance. Shure has built a reputation on creating reliable, excellent-sounding products that are a fantastic value. With the revolutionary reverse airflow technology, the KSM8 does an excellent job at producing clear acoustics that is ideally shaped for vocals due to the control of proximity effect and presence peaks. It has a uniform, cardioid polar pattern that helps to isolate the main source and reduce background noise, making it versatile enough to be used in a live or studio setting.

Tailored Acoustics for Versatility

This dynamic mic delivers really natural sounding vocals due to the control of the proximity effect, which produces a very neutral mid and high frequency response. The KSM8 does a great job at handling plosive sounds and making sure your voice cuts through the mix well. It has a patented dual diaphragm inverted airflow cartridge that does an excellent job of rejecting off-axis sound and delivering a signal clarity that rivals a condenser mic but with optimal feedback control. It has a clear tonal range and does well in catching sonic details for a balanced acoustic performance.

Rugged Durability for Versatile Portability

The rugged construction ensures this mic is made to endure the rigors of gig work and is built to have a long life. It has a carbon steel grille that is lined with a hydrophobic woven fabric that helps to reduce breath and wind noise, while also giving waterproof protection. The KSM8 delivers a full, balanced sound perfect for any instrument, and versatile enough for studio or live application, making it a well-rounded, accessible mic that is made to last. The pneumatic shock mount system helps to give you the best control over any mechanical, handling noise.
