Shure 561 - Omnidirectional Dynamic, Low Z, for Gooseneck Mounting
The Shure Model 561 is an omnidirectional, low-impedance dynamic
microphone designed for use on a stand or flexible gooseneck. Its
smooth frequency response is tailored for optimum speech
intelligibility, making it ideal for language labs, paging
applications, and base station communications. The 561 is also suitable
for use as a talk-back or cuing microphone in TV, film, and recording
Frequency response tailored for speech applications, with bass rolloff and mid-range "presence" rise
