The Shure TwinPlex subminiature omnidirectional lavaliers are designed to perform better than other 5 mm lavalier microphones for professional theater, film, tv, and corporate events. The TwinPlex dual-diaphragm technology yields extraordinary gain-before-feedback, off-axis response, and low self-noise while delivering life-like, exceptional clarity free of digital interference. The cable itself is ultra quiet and has been tested to be the longest-lasting, most dependable cable in its class. The TwinPlex series features the most extensive accessories and connector options to date. TwinPlex 5 mm lavs not only meet premium market-leading expectations, they exceed them.
Shure TwinPlex lavaliers are available in a variety of connector and sensitivity levels.
