MX412D/C 12" Gooseneck Cardioid Microphone

Shure Microflex MX400D Series microphones are miniature electret condenser gooseneck microphones with a desktop base and attached 3 m (approximate)/10 ft cable. The desktop base allows these microphones to be used in multi-purpose rooms where quick set-up is required, or where permanent installation is impractical.

Key Features:

  • Wide dynamic range and frequency response for accurate sound reproduction across the audio spectrum
  • Interchangeable cartridges provide the right polar pattern for any application 
  • Balanced, transformerless output for increased immunity to noise over long cable runs 
  • Programmable on/off switch and LED on/off indicator 
  • New brighter LED improves visibility under strong ambient lighting 
  • Logic input and output terminals for remote control or use with automatic microphone mixers
  • Snap-fit foam windscreen
