Shure SM89


Shure SM89


The SM89 is a highly directional condenser shotgun microphone with distant pickup characteristics suitable for on-location film and television production. The SM89 can also be used for theater sound reinforcement, spot news coverage, or wildlife recording.

For clarity and speech intelligibility, a slight presence rise optimizes the high-frequency response to compensate for high-frequency losses. A low-frequency rolloff minimizes pickup of wind, mechanical vibration, ambient noise, and rumble without affecting voice frequencies.
