Get Uncompromised Broadcast Quality How? - The Shure Beta 54 Is Your Solution

The Shure BETA 54 Mic is a subminiature, electret condenser headworn microphone. It provides uncompromised sound quality and reliability with minimal visibility in applications such as broadcast, theater, and touring. Despite the small size, the condenser element is the solution to delivering full, clear and natural reproduction of speech and vocals.

The Shure microphone features a durable, low-profile wire frame headband which is fully adjustable for stability and comfort. A plastic carrying case protects the Shure vocal microphone and its accessories.
