Shure ULXD24/Beta 58A – Reviewing A Great Wireless Microphone System | Tech Specs & Features

Shure ULXD24/Beta 58A

Shure ULXD24/Beta 58A

The Shure ULXD24/Beta 58A is a wireless microphone system using 24-bit/48kHz digital audio. It uses intelligent scanning and predictive switching diversity to find the cleanest frequencies to minimize dropouts and interference.

This system is basically the same as Shure’s QLXD series (1,3) with the main difference being the ULXD’s Ethernet Networking feature. This feature can be advantageous if you’re using multiple wireless devices running at the same time. Ethernet Networking allows you to streamline the setup of multiple receivers enabling the entire band to run wireless without conflict in a much easier fashion.

Microphone Beta

The Beta 58A that comes with this system is a supercardioid dynamic mic for the highest amount of isolation. This mic naturally has a mid-range boost with a dip in the bass for singers who prefer a punchier high end. With very low handling noise and an increased mic frequency response of 50Hz to 15kHz, many sound engineers and singers are moving from SM58 to Beta.


  • Predictive switching diversity
  • Ethernet networking
  • Gain adjustment on the front panel
  • Secure transmission with AES 256-bit encryption when security is needed
  • Large LCD screen
  • Made of durable metal
  • 12 hours of play time with Shure Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Batteries
  • Intelligent signal scanning automatically finds and switches to the cleanest frequencies
  • Flat frequency response (actual frequency response depends on the microphone)
