Given that the MTP W950 is built with a modular system, this condenser microphone can be swapped for wireless and wired (XLR) use. Keeping versatility and convenience in mind, Lewitt Audio has even made the MTP W950 compatible with other transmitters such as Shure’s.

Speaking of swappable functions and versatility, the MTP W950’s polar patterns can also be switched from cardioid to supercardioid, making it more useful in range. It also has a 120 Hz low-cut filter, a 12dB attenuation to help reduce mic sensitivity, and a maximum sound pressure level of up to 152 dB SPL.

Putting all these features together makes the MTP W950 a great condenser microphone for live performances no doubt. Albeit, the MTP W950 comes at a rather expensive price of $799. Should this be out of your range, then you may try your luck at other great vocal microphones.
