About the Shure MX153

Heard but not seen

Shure's MX153 earset mic delivers big, full sound for public speaking events, from church gatherings to business conferences. This tiny mic clips over one ear and weighs in at less than an ounce. Its tiny form factor makes it practically disappear from further distances — your audience can see your face and concentrate on your words, rather than being distracted by a clunky mic. The included four-foot cable terminates in a TA4F connector that fits Shure wireless bodypack transmitters (not included).
