Shure AD2/KSM8B Digital Handheld Wireless Microphone Transmitter with KSM8 Capsule

 

The black Shure AD2/KSM8B is a digital handheld wireless microphone transmitter compatible with Axient Digital series receivers.

The AD2/KSM8B comes equipped with a KSM8 dual-diaphragm dynamic capsule that minimizes proximity effect, delivering a consistent sound even when the distance between the mic and the sound source varies. The cardioid polar pattern provides a clean, richly detailed signal with reduced feedback, great for speech and vocals in live venues.

The transmitter operates in a single 146 MHz ultrawide UHF bandwidth with selectable 2/10/35mW RF output power and a transmission range up to 330′. It provides up to 8 hours of operation on two AA batteries and up to 9 hours with an SB900A lithium-ion rechargeable battery (available separately).

With a durable, moisture-resistant, lightweight aluminum case, the AD2/KSM8B transmitter delivers pristine audio quality and RF performance, AES 256-bit encryption for secure transmission, and advanced rechargeability options, making it ideal for high-profile, sound-reinforcement applications.

Interchangeable Design with KSM8 Capsule

  • The KSM8’s hardened, dent-resistant grille is lined with hydrophobic woven fabric, which rejects moisture as well as plosives.
  • The interchangeable capsule design allows you to replace the KSM8 capsule with a Shure capsule that’s ideal for your application and simply screw it onto the transmitter—including KSM9, KSM9HS, SM58, Beta 87A, Beta 87C capsules, and more.

User-Friendly Features in a Rugged Housing

  • The unit quickly syncs with a wireless receiver via infrared at the touch of a button.
  • Automatic Gain adjusts the mic input level for you.
  • The power button conveniently doubles as mute switch, while preserving RF lock.
  • Frequency and power lockout functions prevent accidental or unauthorized changes during events.
  • A backlit LCD with easy-to-navigate menu and controls lets you quickly access frequency, group, and channel settings, along with mute and lock status, RF output, and remaining battery life.
  • Offset function lets you balance mic levels when assigning multiple transmitters to a single receiver slot. Adjustment range: -12 to +21 dB.
  • 2/10/35mW selectable RF output power allows you to increase either the transmitter’s range or the number of mics operating simultaneously.
  • Two transmission modes: Standard for optimal coverage and High-Density for maximum system channel count and robust coverage.

Convenient Power Management Options

  • Optional SB900A rechargeable battery offers intelligent power management with precision metering in hours and minutes, and zero memory effect.
  • External charging contacts allow for docked battery charging.
  • SBC220 two-bay and SBC840 eight-bay networked chargers (both available separately) allow for remote power monitoring via Shure’s Wireless Workbench software.
