DuraPlex consists of the DL4 omnidirectional waterproof Lavalier microphone and the DH5 omnidirectional waterproof headset microphone, priced at $301 and $412 respectively.
Shure has unveiled DuraPlex, a subminiature (5mm) omnidirectional lavalier and headset microphone designed for tough conditions. DuraPlex features Shure’s first IP57 certification rating. The microphone comes with 1.6 mm cable which has the durability of TwinPlex – Shure’s premium line of lavalier and headset microphones.
The microphone was developed with input from audio professionals and hopes to support the diverse needs of film and television, theatre, broadcast, and corporate presentations. DuraPlex consists of the DL4 Omnidirectional Waterproof Lavalier Microphone and the DH5 Omnidirectional Waterproof Headset Microphone.
Complementing Shure’s expansive portfolio of mid- and high-tier wireless systems, the IP57 rating and cable durability of DuraPlex promises an entirely new tier of audio performance and ruggedness. The MEMs element yields consistent and neutral sound quality with low self-noise for vocal clarity in multiple environments.
DuraPlex comes complete with the accessories needed to support simplified usability including a carrying case, snap-fit and foam windscreens, single tie clip, and a presence cap are all included. DL4 also comes packaged with a sticky mount. The easy-to-conceal form factor and ultra-lightweight/easily mountable design allows for quick applications, costume changes, and discrete placement under wardrobe with no impact on sound quality.
“In developing DuraPlex, we wanted to provide a simple, consistent, reliable solution, ready to tackle any environment,” commented John Born, Senior Global Product Manager at Shure. “The neutral response, easy-to-use accessories and design, combined with best-in-class cable durability and waterproof element, quickly make DuraPlex an outstanding leader at this price tier.”
DuraPlex DH5 Headsets come in multiple colours (Tan, Cocoa, Black) with a sleek, brushed steel frame for a placement. DH5 pricing starts at $412. DL4 Lavaliers are available in four colours (Black, Tan, Cocoa, White) and are available starting at $301. Both products are now globally available.
The regional launch of the Duraplex subminiature microphone will be unveiled at Broadcast Pro’s MENA Virtual OTT + Anti-Piracy Conference, November 4 at 12.30-1.00 pm. Register now.
