Shure SM27 Studio Condenser Cardioid Microphone

The SM27 is a rugged and versatile large-diaphragm, side-address cardioid condenser microphone, with low self-noise and extended frequency response that picks up vocal and instrument nuances with clarity. Durable Shure construction features three separate mesh layers that reduce wind and breath noise. Equally comfortable on stage or in the studio.

  • Cardioid polar pattern – the most commonly used pattern for both studio and live applications

  • 1 inch, externally biased, ultra-thin, 2.5 μm, 24 Karat gold-layered, low mass, Mylar® diaphragm provides superior transient response

  • Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier for transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion, while minimizing harmonic and intermodulation distortions

  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors

  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz

  • Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)

  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted background noise or counteract proximity effect

  • Integrated three-stage pop protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise

  • Internal shock mount reduces handling and stand noise
