The Shure Q5X PlayerMic Short Flexible Wireless Bodypack Microphone Transmitter has a sturdy casing of bendable polymer designed to be rugged, but superbly safe and supremely comfortable when worn by sportspeople, performers and entertainers, who could just as well forget about the mic when using it. The PlayerMic Shor has a LEMO 1-pin connector ready to be mated with any compatible lavalier (that item, widely available separately), and it is good for location shooting, reality TV, entertainment events and sports with broadcasting with the Shure Q5X PlayerMic Short Flexible Wireless Bodypack Microphone Transmitter .

Setup is handled remotely via the QX5's Remote Control Audio System (RCAS) using the handheld MicCommander module (available separately). This short version of the transmitter provides up to 4 hours of operation on its built-in rechargeable battery and features a selectable 2/10/20mW RF output power. Users requiring more battery time can choose the regular PlayerMic instead, which offers 8 hours of operating time in a larger chassis.
