Shure SLX24/BETA87C Handheld Wireless System

The Shure SLX24/BETA87C SLX Series wireless microphone systems provide the performance and reliability needed for use in venues, sound reinforcement, etc. The UHF system is available in up to 8 different bands, over a 24 MHz spectrum. This system includes the SLX4 receiver and SLX2 handheld transmitter with a Beta 87C microphone head.

The SLX4 Receiver is rack or desktop mountable and features a diversity antenna design. The diversity design allows dual antennas to compete for the strongest possible reception. An XLR microphone level and 1/4" phone line level outputs are featured. A comprehensive LCD display provides frequency, group and channel information as well as transmitter battery status, audio level and more.

The SLX2 Handheld Transmitter features the Shure Beta 87C super-cardioid capsule. The Beta 87C provides a slight rise in high frequency response, resulting in improved vocal reproduction in live performances. The super-cardioid polar pattern provides off-axis noise rejection resulting in higher gain before feedback. The SLX2 is completely frequency agile featuring a choice of over 960 user selectable frequencies.  

Shure SLX24/BETA87C Features

  • Sync Between Transmitter & Receiver: The SLX series transmitters and receivers feature an infrared sync feature which allows settings such as frequency and channel to be transferred remotely
  • UHF Diversity: The SLX4 receiver features UHF diversity reception. Dual receivers compete for the strongest possible reception, reducing noise and dropout due to RF interference
  • Mic & Line Level Output: The SLX4 receiver features an XLR mic level and 1/4" phone line level output
  • Extended Battery Life: The SLX2 handheld transmitter operates up to 8 hours on 2 AA size batteries
