Not only is this Shure model one of the best looking mics ever made, it also introduced a breakthrough technology in using just a single dynamic element and achieving pattern control. Shure developed the mic element in the 1930's, using small ports that allowed sound waves to reach both sides of a diaphragm at different times, resulting in a more linear frequency response. The design is called UNIDYNE (short for Unidirectional Dynamic), and its a basis of many designs today, including another icon, the SM58. The combination of great sound, compact size, cardioid pattern and classic styling made this mic an instant hit.By the 1950's, it was so recognizable that a company advertisement simply featured a picture of the mic and copy reading Used the World Over More Than Any Other Microphone and The Microphone That Needs No Name.
