Shure GLXD14R Wireless Lavalier System with WL185 microphone, an advanced digital wireless lavalier system.

Discreet Wireless Lavalier Microphone

The GLXD14R wireless lavalier system with WL185 microphone comes with everything you need included in the pack and providing great sound reinforcement for a wide variety of applications.

Difference Between GLX-D Advanced and Standard GLX-D Wireless Systems

Marking a significant improvement over the standard series, the GLX-D Advanced Digital Wireless systems include rack mount receiver systems, remote antennas and other accessories, making them extremely flexible for a multitude of applications.

They're also made to be compatible with Frequency Managers for the ultimate in convenient flexibility.

The GLX-D Advanced GLXD14R system also uses LINKFREQ Automatic Frequency Management, an incredible, proprietary wireless technology platform developed by Shure to optimise wireless transmitter and receiver performance in the 2.4GHz frequency band.

Just activate the GLX-D receiver and transmitter and a link will automatically be established between them, with the GLX-D receiver continuously analysing the active RF spectrum to determine the best frequency for transmission.

Once found, the GLX-D receiver automatically links both itself and the transmitter to that frequency. To improve performance, should RF interference be detected, the GLX-D receiver and transmitter seamlessly and automatically move together to a new frequency with no audio interruption.

WL185 Wireless Lavalier Microphone

Included in the pack is a Shure WL185, a premium cardioid condenser lavlier microphone designed for speech applications.

With its focused cardioid polar pattern, it has exceptional speech capture while rejecting unwanted ambient noise.

The WL185 comes with a tie clip that can be rotated in 90-degree intervals, giving you some great flexibility when it comes to placement options.

CommShield Technology is also in use, guarding against signal interference and just like any Shure product, it has that same legendary durability.

Rack Mountable Wireless Receiver

At the heart of the GLXD14R wireless lavalier system is the GLXD4R, a rack mount receiver that provides fantastic audio clarity.

An integrated battery charge port allows for convenient charging of the bodypack transmitter and has an easy to read two-colour charge indicator LED.

XLR and ¼” output connectors allow for connectivity with a huge range of equipment while a hi-res LCD screen clearly displays all necessary information.

The antennas are detachable for remote mounting while the rugged metal chassis design ensures the receiver is well protected in transit.

Bodypack Transmitter

Allowing for the quickest and easiest set up possible, the GLXD1 bodypack transmitter automatically links with GLX-D wireless receivers and provides seamless frequency changing.

Making use of GLXD proprietary lithium-ion batteries, the GLXD4R can have up to 16 hours of continuous use while an integrated battery charge port has an easy to read two-colour charge indicator LED.

Equipped with Shure Digital Power Management, you can charge the bodypack in your car, at the mains or even with a USB charger.

If you forget to charge the bodypack transmitter and you’re caught in a jam, you can also connect for a 15-minute quick charge and rely on up to 1.5 hours of performance!

Under normal conditions, the GLXD1 transmitter has a long operating range of between 20 and 30m, so you have a lot of freedom of movement – perfect for expressive exciting and expressive performances.

With its all-metal construction, the GLXD1 bodypack transmitter is as durable as Shure’s reputation would suggest and it is nicely lightweight.

Easy to Use, Great Results

There are three key aspects that set the GLXD14R wireless lavalier system apart from its competition.

Firstly, the WL185 is a purpose designed discreet wireless lavalier tuned for vocal capture and as a result it is minimalist and provides excellent quality audio while rejecting unwanted ambient noise. The bodypack transmitter is also lightweight and extremely durable.

Secondly, there are lots of charging options including the 15-minute quick charge for up to 1.5 hours of use while the full charge allows for up to 16 hours of use.

Last but not least; it is very easy to set up and use. The WL185 wireless lavalier microphone easily connects to the GLXD1 bodypack transmitter which in turn automatically links to the GLXD4 wireless receiver, providing 20 – 30m of operating range.

All packaged together, the GLXD14R wireless lavalier system with WL185 microphone comes with everything you need for multi-instrumentalists, motivational speakers and choreographed performances that require vocals.
