Shure Super 55

Shure Super 55

Introduced 70 years ago, the Shure Super 55 Unidyne gained fame as one of the world’s first single-element unidirectional microphones. Shure has taken the iconic 55SH chrome-plated die-cast body, in production since 1951, and created the Super 55 Deluxe vocal microphone. The Supper 55 offers an advanced supercardioid capsule and royal blue internal foam while retaining a retro-cool look. The Super 55 offers a high-output, vocal-friendly sound, smooth frequency response, and a robust shock mount.

Performers and music enthusiasts will appreciate the timeless style and cultural significance of the Super 55. This microphone is ideal for stage, studio recording, podcasting, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.
