Shure Announced New Microphones Plus XLR-to-USB Signal Adapter

Shure has announced the PG27USB and PG42USB Side-Address Condenser Microphones and the X2U XLR-to-USB Signal Adapter.

The PG27USB and PG42USB microphones connect professional-caliber Shure microphones to any USB computer port with “Plug and Play” performance. The cardioid condenser microphones feature built-in headphone monitoring with low latency and monitor mix control, enabling users to instantly hear what they’re recording through headphones and make adjustments on-the-go.

The PG27 and PG42 are XLR counterparts to the USB models. The key difference between the PG27, PG27USB, PG42, and PG42USB microphones is the application for which they were designed:

The PG27 and PG27USB feature a flat, neutral frequency response for natural reproduction of a wide variety of instrument and vocal sound sources. The PG42 and PG42USB were specifically engineered to reproduce the subtle nuances of lead vocals. The large diaphragm allows for higher sensitivity to clearly reproduce refined performances. The low-cut filter and external shock-mount further optimize performance for vocals.

Features:
» Large diaphragm capsule
» USB “Plug and Play” Connectivity
» Integrated pre-amp with Microphone Gain Control
» Low Latency Monitoring
» Headphone Jack For monitoring – 1/8″ connectivity
» Monitor Mix Control:
