The RPW 184 KSM9 is a premium electret condenser microphone capsule for for all Shure handheld transmitters except BLX and GLX-D series. It is switchable between cardioid and supercardioid polar pattern responses. The cardioid setting captures sound directly in front of the microphone and has the greatest rejection 180 degrees toward the rear. A cardioid pattern has a wider coverage angle, resulting in increased off-axis pickup. This is the most common pattern in studio recording and live-sound applications. The supercardioid setting captures sound directly in front of the microphone and has the greatest sound rejection at points 120 degrees toward the rear of the microphone. A supercardioid pattern has a narrower coverage angle of 115 degrees, resulting in increased off-axis rejection. This pattern is ideal for loud environments or applications when sound sources are very close together. The capsule features 3 separate mesh layers that act as an integral pop filter helping to reduce wind and breath noise.
