Shure realease limited edition microphone
2014 marks 75 years of the world’s most recognisable mic. A year that Shure kicked off to a flying start when the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) presented Shure with the Milestone Awardfor the Unidyne technology. To mark this achievement, and to commemorate the 75th anniversary, we are proud to announce a new Limited Edition Unidyne model, the 5575LE Unidyne® Limited Edition Cardioid Dynamic Microphone.
Introduced in 1939, the 55 Unidyne was internationally adopted as a workhorse microphone for broadcast, public address, recording, and two-way radio applications. By the 1950s it found its way into many performance environments that would cement its iconic status and legacy as “the microphone that needs no name”. Fast forward to the 21st century, and its design symbolises what many still think of when they hear the word “microphone”.
Limited Edition Shure 5574LE. The new limited edition Unidyne is every bit as iconic looking as the original, with a few carefully chosen 21st-century upgrades to improve durability and sound quality. The 5575LE features the current Unidyne III cardioid element, the instantly identifiable large outer grill, vintage badging, and a zinc die-cast finish. The microphone is supplied with a silver-finish desk stand and an aluminium flight case with a 75th anniversary logo. Also included is a certificate of authenticity to ensure you receive the real deal.
When Will it be Available?
Available in a numbered manufacturing run of just 5575 pieces, the 5575LE pays homage to the original 55 Unidyne, packaging together vintage aesthetic and performance features for performers and collectors alike.
Available from early 2015. To learn more, please visit the 5575LE product page.
