The Shure SLXD15/85 Digital Camera-Mount Wireless Cardioid Lavalier Mic System (G58: 470 to 514 MHz) provides videographers, journalists, documentary makers, and content producers with a dependable wireless lavalier microphone system. Offering crystal-clear digital sound quality, it's ideal for quick and easy setup, even with multiple mics on set. The rugged Shure SLXD15/85 single-channel receiver can be camera-mounted or used in an audio bag, offering a comprehensive feature set for professional-sounding, broadcast-ready results. This configuration includes a bodypack transmitter and a WL185 cardioid lavalier microphone.

Transparent Digital Sound, Dependable Performance, and Multi-Mic Mode

  • The SLX-D delivers 24-bit digital audio with a fast transient response, a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, and a 118 dB dynamic range, resulting in clear, accurate sound.
  • Operating far away from potential Wi-Fi interference in the 2.4 GHz band, this configuration of the system transmits in the G58: 470 to 514 MHz UHF band, with a 44 MHz tuning range and 1760 frequencies it can autoscan to ensure a clean wireless signal.
  • Digital Predictive Switching Diversity uses a microprocessor to switch between the two antennas before dropouts occur.
  • A low latency of 3.2 ms helps ensure your sound and picture are easy to properly sync.
  • The SLX-D's spectrum-efficient digital transmission technology allows for up to 32 mics to be used at once.
  • Great for shoots with several cameras and microphones, Multi-Mic Mode lets you scan and create a list of clean frequencies, which you can send to multiple receivers via IR.
  • Each receiver will sync to the appropriate transmitter at the touch of a button; settings on the transmitters, including the input gain and high-pass filter, are also recalled.
  • Multi-Mic Mode makes channel allocation easier and more efficient since the receivers aren’t all auto-scanning and competing for open frequencies.

Bodypack Transmitter with WL185 Cardioid Lavalier Mic

  • This configuration comes with a WL185 lavalier microphone optimized for speech intelligibility and equipped with a cardioid polar pattern that helps to reject unwanted noise.
  • The lavalier mic plugs securely into the locking TA4M connector on the compact and discreet SLXD1 bodypack transmitter.
  • The rugged, plastic transmitter has a belt clip that attaches to the talent’s clothing and an LCD that shows essential information.
  • The mic offset function provides up to +21 dB of gain to boost low-volume speech and ensure multiple microphones are at similar levels.
  • Engage the 150 Hz high-pass filter to reduce distracting, unwanted low-end for clearer speech.
  • A selectable 1/10mW RF output allows you to increase the transmission power to overcome interference, if necessary, and the system provides a transmission range up to 330'.
  • Two AA batteries or an SB903 rechargeable battery (available separately) will power the unit for up to 8 hours.

Rugged Receiver Ready for Camera or Audio Bag

  • Powerful and portable, the SLXD5 is a single-channel digital wireless receiver for on-camera cold shoe mounting or audio bag use, featuring user-configurable front-panel controls and a bright OLED screen for key system function readouts and remaining battery life.
  • Housed in a tough metal chassis with adjustable front-mounted antennas, the SLXD5 is a great fit for on-the-go shooting rigs.
  • It offers adjustable gain control and dual 3.5mm outputs including a headphone monitor out and switchable line/mic output. Additional features include automatic frequency scanning and IR sync to easily link the transmitter and receiver to the same frequency.
  • Two AA batteries or an SB903 rechargeable battery (available separately) will power the unit for up to 5.5 hours.
  • The receiver’s USB-C port can be used to recharge the SB903 battery or power the unit.

Optional Rechargeable Battery Management

  • Adding the SB903 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, along with an SBC10-903 single charger, SBC203 dual-docking charger, or SBC80-903 8-bay charger offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to throwing away AA batteries (batteries and chargers available separately).
  • Using the SB903 battery and SBC203 charger simplifies the task of keeping multiple transmitters charged and ready—you can even recharge the battery while still in the transmitter or receiver.
  • When powered by an SB903, the transmitter and receiver both display the remaining battery life in hours and minutes.
  • For bag use, the SBC-DC-903 battery eliminator (available separately) allows you to power the receiver from your mixer's battery.

A Variety of Mics and Transmitters Available

Shure offers numerous lavalier, headset, and handheld microphone options to adapt your SLX-D system as your needs evolve.

  • The WL183 omnidirectional lavalier mic offers consistent pickup, even when the talent turns away from the mic.
  • The WL184 supercardioid lavalier mic offers a narrower, feedback-resistant pickup pattern for louder events.
  • The discrete UL4 UniPlex subminiature cardioid lav provides directional pickup, exceptional clarity, and a discreet, low-profile appearance.
  • If you need a waterproof option, the DL4 DuraPlex miniature lavalier features an IP57 rating for water and dust resistance. Its forgiving omnidirectional microphone capsule delivers a clear, transparent, full-range sound.
  • The SLXD2 handheld transmitter is available with several mic-capsule choices for presenters who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone.
  • Add the XLR microphone of your choice to the system with the SLXD3, a plug-on transmitter with a secure locking connector that features both 12 and 48V phantom power for condenser mics.
