News Shure SM27

Shure has announced the introduction of the SM27 and SM137 microphones.


The SM27 is a large-diaphragm, side-address cardioid condenser microphone designed to pick up the nuances of vocals and instruments with clarity. This microphone has a one-inch Mylar diaphragm for transient response, low frequency reproduction, and a low self-noise (just 9.5 dB SPL) to reveal fine detail when recording or during live performance. The SM27 is designed to offer lower self-noise and improved dynamic range specifications over the KSM27 model that it replaces.

The SM137 is a cardioid probe microphone for instrument recording applications. The SM137 employs a diaphragm designed for smooth high end and tight, controlled low end. Its 15 dB attenuator enables it to handle sound pressure levels as high as 154 dB SPL, for reproduction of delicate acoustic as well as high-volume amplified instruments. The SM137 replaces the KSM109 model.

For digital recording directly to a computer, Shure now offers the classic SM57 and SM58 microphones packaged with the new X2U XLR-USB Signal Adapter. The X2U features a built-in headphone jack with zero-latency monitoring for real-time playback and multi-tracking without disorientation. A Monitor Mix Control is designed to make it easy to balance microphone and playback audio.

Shure SM models will receive new packaging. The new package consists of a separate box and color sleeve.

Pricing & Availability
  • SM27: $299 retail [$460 MSRP]
  • SM137: $179 retail [$236 MSRP]
  • SM57X2U and SM58-X2U: $199.00 retail [$280.00 MSRP]

The SM27 and SM137 microphones will be available in March 2009 and will carry a two-year limited warranty.
