Shure Microflex® MX400SE Series microphones are miniature gooseneck-mounted electret condenser microphones designed primarily for speech and vocal pickup. Their high sensitivity and broad frequency range make them suitable for recording, as well as sound reinforcement applications.
The MX400SE series can be screwed onto a mic stand or the supplied 5/8 in. 27-threaded flange. They can be easily changed from side exit to bottom exit to conceal the cabling. All models include an in-line preamplifier, a 3.66 m (12 ft.) cable.
MX400 microphones are available with 305 mm (12 in.) or 457 mm (18 in.) goosenecks, with or without a mute switch. They are available in supercardioid, cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns.
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.
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.
Do not cut the cable to reroute. This will compromise RF immunity.
Mount the microphone using one of the following methods.
Slip the mounting flange retaining ring over the bottom of the preamplifier and slide it up until it is flush to the bottom of the flange. Then press the ring firmly into place.
