One of Shure's finest live vocal mics in a digital wireless format.
The Shure QLXD digital wireless systems are available in a variety of configurations that accommodate the needs of live presentation professionals from musicians to business leaders to auctioneers and beyond. This is the QLXD24/B87A system, which includes the QLXD2 handheld transmitter equipped with a Beta 87A capsule, the QLXD4 digital wireless receiver, instrument cable, power supply, 2 AA batteries, two 1/2 wave antennas, 2 BNC cables, zipper bag, 2 BNC bulkhead adapters, rackmount kit, and user guide.
The half-rack QLXD4 Digital Wireless Receiver quickly finds open frequencies and deploys them to transmitters via the one-touch sync function. The QLXD4 works with all QLX-D Digital Wireless Systems, and features Ethernet networking and mobile monitoring and control capabilities.
With transparent 24-bit digital audio quality and incredibly efficient RF spectrum usage, the QLXD4 Digital Wireless Receiver combines professional features with streamlined setup and operation. Automatic scanning quickly finds open frequencies, and one-touch IR sync quickly deploys them to transmitters.
Ethernet networking enables networked channel scanning across multiple receivers and Wireless Workbench software integration for remote control of receiver settings from a PC or Mac. Remote monitoring and control from iOS devices also is available via the ShurePlus Channels Mobile App.
With an interchangeable BETA87A microphone cartridge, the QLXD2/BETA87A Handheld Wireless Microphone Transmitter is ideal for wireless vocals in presentation spaces, music venues, and houses of worship. It interfaces perfectly with the QLX-D4 receiver.
It offers up to 9 hours of continuous use with 2 AA alkaline batteries or up to 10 hours of continuous use with Shure lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, and comes with 2 AA batteries, battery contact cover, microphone clip, and user guide.
The BETA87A is one of Shure's finest live performance microphone designs. It is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.
The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the "boomy" sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration.

Comments about Shure QLX-D Digital Wireless System with Beta 87A Condenser Microphone:
I play guitar, bass, keyboards and sing in a group at church. You can imagine the amount of cables a small group can generate. Everyone in the group buys their own gear. I was using an SM-58 for my vocals, but decided to cut the chord on my vocal mic and go wireless. Out of all the brands I liked the feature sets on the Shure products the best. Several of their wireless systems offer the capability of swapping mic capsules - this one included. After some research, I decided on the QLX-D. Shure does make some more expensive units, but the sound quality does not improve past the QLX-D line. I wanted studio quality audio and this system has the ability to deliver it. We use floor monitors and I was concerned about feedback with a condenser mic capsule. We usually have the floor monitors cranked up fairly loud. I am happy to say the Beta 87A mic capsule I opted for does not cause feedback - this is extremely important. I have received countless comments on the quality of my vocals with this system.
Another good feature is that the receiver output does not "pop" when turning the mic on and off. I also don't hear any handling noise, when powering the mic on or off, or swapping the mic from one hand to another. The LCD display is small, but easy to read. It shows frequency and battery life remaining. Setup is quick and easy. The receiver has an on/off button and a good LCD display that I can read from above. The receiver also shows the frequency, mic battery life, gain and signal level. The gain setting can be adjusted on the receiver to avoid clipping.
Another cool feature is the Shure Wireless Workbench software. The receiver has an RJ-45 jack and can connect to a switch or router. I have it installed on my laptop and can plug it into my mixer rack at church and check/update the firmware and perform a lot of other functions with the QLX-D receiver, such as frequency coordination. Most individuals may not need this function.
This system is money well-spent.
