OVERVIEW

Inconspicuous and great-sounding.

The Shure Beta 53 is a fully adjustable omnidirectional subminiature condenser headworn vocal microphone, designed for applications where discreet appearance and excellent audio quality are required. Its lightweight, adjustable, modular headband, flexible wireframe and soft earpieces provide a comfortable fit while still allowing the Beta 53 to be positioned as close to the left or right corner of the mouth as possible, assuring maximum voice pickup.

The Beta 53 microphone features an extended frequency response and high SPL handling ability. Despite its small size the Beta 53 handsfree mic delivers full, clear, and natural reproduction of speech and vocals. It is designed for environments such as professional theater, event production, trade shows and seminars. A plastic carrying case protects the Shure microphone and its accessories.
