Shure Microflex® MX200 Series microphones are miniature electret condenser microphones designed for miking choirs and performance groups. They are typically suspended over the heads of the performers. Their high sensitivity and wide frequency range make them suitable for recording, as well as sound reinforcement applications. An attached 101 mm (4 in.) gooseneck allows them to be easily aimed at the sound source.
Microflex MX202 microphones are available in black or white with a choice of in-line preamplifier or plate-mount preamplifier.
The polar pattern of the included cartridge is indicated by a model number suffix:
Microflex microphones use interchangeable cartridges that allow you to choose the polar pattern for different installations.
If necessary, the preamplifier gain can be reduced by 12 dB. Contact an authorized Shure service center for information.
Important: Microphones must be used with the RK100PK or RK202PK plate-mounted preamp to optimize RF immunity.
The microphone is most stable when the gooseneck is bent into a "lazy S" shape. Use the supplied hanging clip and heavy thread or monofilament fishing line to suspend the microphone at a specific location.
Use the two supplied mounting clamps to hold the preamp in place on a wall or ceiling.
The plate-mounted preamp allows you to mount the preamp in an electical box and use conduit to run cable through ceilings and walls.

Note: Yellowing of any plastic material can be caused from cigarette smoke, ultra violet rays, and other chemical interactions. Once plastic has yellowed, there typically is no cleaning method that will restore the whiteness.
