The refined and sophisticated design of the Shure KSM44A features externally biased, dual 1-inch diaphragms, extensive internal pop filtering and Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology for a ground-breaking threshold minimum of self-noise.  The KSM44A is the premier choice for the highest level of professional studio and stage performance.

A milestone achievement in sound reinforcement, the Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology employs transparent internal circuitry architectures to enable unprecedented audio quality and performance.

  • Prethos Advanced Preamplifier Technology: Class A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier provides  transparency, extremely fast transient response and no crossover distortion. Minimizes harmonic and intermodulation distortions.  
  • Groundbreaking specifications: 4dB of self-noise and max SPL of 131 dB for a total dynamic range of 127 dB – an increase of 7 dB that defines the new standard for cleanly nuanced audio capture
  • Multiple polar patterns–cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional–for maximum flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
  • Dual 1 inch, externally biased, ultra-thin, 2.5 μm, 24 Karat gold-layered, low mass diaphragms provide superior frequency response
  • Premium electronic components and gold-plated internal and external connectors
  • Subsonic filter eliminates rumble from mechanical vibration below 17 Hz.
  • Switchable 15 dB pad for handling extremely high sound pressure levels (SPLs)
  • 3-position switchable low-frequency filter helps reduce unwanted stand vibration noise or counteract proximity effect
  • Integrated three-stage “pop” protection grille reduces plosives and other breath noise

Versatile and Natural


I own several dynamic mics, a couple of small diaphragm condensers, and this is my first large diaphragm condenser. I've had it for several months. I use this to record acoustic guitar and vocals. It's very quite and natural sounding. The best thing about this mic is the switchable polar patterns. Prior to purchasing this mic, I did not realize I had a need for an omni mic. Omni mode with this mic sounds great on both vocals and acoustic guitar. The omni sound is just more natural than anything else. If you are looking for quality, flexibility, a not overly hyped or colored sound, and a product that is still manufactured in the USA, then this is your large diaphragm condenser. Though it's been out for about 10 years, this very underrated mic is still relatively new and many people haven't seen them yet. will be much more popular another 10-20 years from now than it is today.
