OVERVIEW

A wireless mic for active performers.

The Shure WH20QTR Headset Mic is a rugged, lightweight, dynamic headset microphone that provides high-quality voice pickup. It fits securely for active microphone users, such as aerobics instructors and musicians, with low visibility for stage appearances. The WH20 is suitable for any voice communications application where comfort and reliability are required.

The Shure WH20 has a cardioid (unidirectional) pickup pattern. This provides greater gain-before-feedback and isolation from ambient noise and other unwanted sound sources, such as air-conditioning, musical instruments and loudspeakers. A carefully shaped frequency response includes a voice-frequency presence peak and a low-frequency rolloff to compensate for the proximity effect inherent in cardioid microphones during close-talk operation.

An integrated elastic CROAKIES headband secures the headset comfortably. The headband, wireframe, and gooseneck are adjustable to accommodate any head size or shape. The Shure WH20 is supplied with a foam windscreen and clothing clip. Right-angle 1/4" phone plug for use with Shure Headset Wireless Microphone Systems, or any unbalanced microphone input.

Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device.

For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.

    Comments about Shure WH20QTR Headset Microphone:

    Just didn't work for me. Sound was tinny and I couldn't get the volume I needed. I would have to crank my system to the max to get a fairly decent level. I actually bought another one thinking this one was defective. The second mic performed about the same way.

      As a drummer this does what I need it to do but sometimes I wish the wire was a little longer. Would I buy it again? Yes.

        Comments about Shure WH20QTR Headset Microphone:

        The Level 2 Condition Shure headset I received was in "near new" condition (came with two new foam mic-shields and an solid alligator clip to pin the looped wire to a shirt.
        The sound is clear. Once custom-fitted, it is easy to wear. As a singing drummer, I no longer have to stop moving to sing. Best thing: it's a Shure! I expect to get a lot of use out of it.

        Disappointed with this mic.

        Comments about Shure WH20QTR Headset Microphone:

        It does pretty sound good, although it did chop-out on high ends, and I did use it in several performances. I am greatly disappointed in how it fits around your ears. If you wear glasses, (like myself), it is awful! It gets tangled up with your glasses. It's not a good choice for that. I waisted my money on it because no one mentioned this in any reviews, so it's going to the junk box. I'm looking for something that doesn't conflict with my glasses.

        Comments about Shure WH20QTR Headset Microphone:

        I found it to be easy to use. Nice, light-weight and adjustable. I was accustomed to it by the second time I used it. I only wish the cable was longer and that you'd have the option of having the mic boom on either side.
