Shure WL 93 Capsule

Model WL93 Microphones are economical omnidirectional, subminiature, lavalier, condenser microphones designed for general speech applications where a visually unobtrusive black microphone is desirable. All WL93 models are supplied with a mounting block with attached tie bar, a sew-on mounting bracket, and an acoustic windscreen to minimize wind noise if in outdoor applications. If these are being used for acting and drama applications, please note they are often pinned into the person’s hair-line.  All WL93 models include a cable terminated with a 4-pin mini connector which connects directly to our Shure U1 wireless body-pack transmitter.  Based on their size and frequency response, these are ideal for theater, television, broadcasting, video, film, and sound reinforcement.  These are the same capsules as the WL93T, but black opposed to tan.

Please note for any wireless lavalier system to function, you require a 3 items, one transmitter, a receiver set to the frequency the transmitter is transmitting, and an input transducer such as this capsule.
