Shure Upgrades WL Series With Launch Of New WL18Xm Condenser Lavalier Microphone Line

Refreshed portfolio builds on the existing Shure WL lavalier microphone technology, delivering enhanced specifications for more optimal compatibility with modern wireless systems.
Shure has announced the newly designed low-profile WL18Xm lavalier condenser microphones.

Shure has announced the debut of updated, newly designed low-profile WL18Xm lavalier condenser microphones, including the cardioid WL185m, supercardioid WL184m, and omnidirectional WL183m, for use with wireless bodypack transmitters, and they’re being sportlighted at the InfoComm 2024 show at the Las Vegas Convention Center at booth C8334.

The refreshed portfolio builds on the existing Shure WL lavalier microphone technology, delivering enhanced specifications for more optimal compatibility with modern wireless systems. The mics are specifically designed for speech and presentation applications in corporate, education, and worship environments.

“Our WL series has been the go-to lavalier solution for decades, known for reliability, durability, and full, accurate sound. As wireless technology continues to improve, we saw an opportunity to innovate and evolve the industry-standard WL line into a product that meets the requirements of professionals using today’s modern, digital systems,” says Nick Wood, senior director, professional audio products, at Shure. “We’re introducing a product that users already know and love, now with lower self-noise, improved RF immunity, higher dynamic range, and improved max SPL.”

The WL18Xm line is 8 mm shorter than its predecessor, making it lighter, lower-profile, and easier to use. Each lavalier is available in either black or white with LEMO or TA4F connector options, and the tie clip can be rotated in 90-degree intervals for more accurate positioning.

Users can choose between three polar patterns – the WL185m (cardioid), WL184m (supercardioid), and WL183m (omnidirectional) – and two connector options, LEMO or TA4F. Shure’s wireless systems, including BLX, GLX-D+, and SLX-D, will be available bundled with WL18Xm later this year.

WL18Xm lavaliers with TA4F connections are available starting at USD $139 and lavaliers with LEMO connections are available for USD $159. Purchase includes the choice of a black or white lavalier, tie clip, snap-fit foam windscreen, and zippered storage bag.
