Perfect for everyone from indie artists to international touring singers, the 2028 Vocal Mic is ideally suited for live stage performances, broadcast, and pro AV applications.

This allows the artist to hone-in on their vocals as if not using a microphone, which puts less strain on the voice. Use it wired or together with your favorite wireless system, either way, just plug it in and hear the vocals shine like never before.
