The KSM9 is Shure's premier live vocal mic and with it's dual diaphragms can be switched between Cardioid and Supercardioid polar pattern modes.
As well as having a shock mount system to reduce handling noise, it also has a 3 stage grille to reduce pop and breath noise.
This microphone is highly regarded by live sound audio engineers due to it's feedback rejection, resistance to popping, quality of construction, and it's transparent sound.
