Shure GLXD24R/B87A Digital Wireless Handheld Microphone System

Gearank Recommendation

The GLXD24R/B87A appeared on our recommended list for Wireless Microphone Systems With 1 Mic from October 2019 until November 2021 when it was out-ranked by other systems.


The GLXD24R / B87A is a wireless microphone system with a handheld transmitter mic based on the popular Shure BETA 87A condenser mic.

This mic is well-loved for its supercardioid capsule, which works well even in situations with loud stage noise.

The transmitter runs on a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that gives up to 16 hours of continuous use, and an operation range of up to 200 feet.

The GLXD receiver operates on the 2.4 GHz frequency and features built-in frequency management that identifies open channels for your perusal.

It also comes with continuous interference monitoring and automatic frequency switching.

Since it operates on the 2.4 GHz frequency, it is prone to WiFi interference as reported by a few users which can present problems in venues such as large hotels and casinos.

If you're looking for a high-quality wireless mic with the Beta 87A's brand of quiet operation then this set is worth checking out, particularly if you prefer condenser mics over dynamic mics like the SM58.

  • Range: Up to 100 Feet (Indoors) / 30.48 Meters
