Shure KSM8 Wins Pipa Award

News Image
Shure's KSM8 Dualdyne Vocal Microphone has been awarded the Prolight + Sound International Press Award (pipa) in the category "Live Microphone / IEM". The ceremony took place during the 2016 Prolight + Sound / Musikmesse in Frankfurt on April 7.

The KSM8 Dualdyne is the first-ever dual-diaphragm dynamic handheld microphone especially suited for high-end vocal reproduction and sound-reinforcement control. The patented Dualdyne cartridge significantly reduces the proximity effect, masters off-axis rejection and provides signal clarity and feedback control.

Ron Hautzinger, Product Manager Pro & Retail at Shure Europe said: "With the KSM8, Shure set out to develop a microphone that turns the world of dynamic microphones upside down. Offering a brand-new patented cartridge design with two diaphragms, the KSM8 has virtually no proximity effect and a flat off-axis attenuation for superior rejection of unwanted sound sources. We are honoured to receive the pipa and would like to thank all voters."
