Shure Microflex® MX391 Series microphones are small, surface-mounted electret condenser microphones designed for mounting on conference tables, stage floors, and lecterns. Their high sensitivity and wide frequency range make them especially suitable for picking up speech and vocals in sound reinforcement and recording applications.
Microflex MX391 microphones are available in black or white.
The polar pattern of the included cartridge is indicated by a model number suffix:
/N Cartridge not included
Microflex microphones use interchangeable cartridges that allow you to choose the polar pattern for different installations.
Important: Microphones must be used with the RK100PK or RK202PK plate-mounted preamp to optimize RF immunity.
For best low-frequency response and rejection of background noise, place the microphone on a large, flat surface, such as a floor, table, or lectern.
To reduce reverberance, avoid reflective surfaces above or to the side of the microphone, such as beveled sides of pulpits or overhanging shelves.
Do not attempt to detach the cable from the microphone, as damage may result.
If necessary, the preamplifier gain can be reduced by 12 dB. Contact an authorized Shure service center for information.

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.
