Smart, Hard-Working Wireless

The SLX14/85-H5 is a receiver and bodypack system composed of the SLX1 bodypack transmitter, SLX4 diversity receiver, and WL185 cardioid electret condenser lapel mic. It operates in the H5 frequency band (518-542 MHz) and has up to 12 compatible channels in the band. Ideally suited for installed sound applications like houses of worship, Shure's SLX wireless systems deliver superior audio quality in an easy-to-use and quickly configurable package. Unlike traditional wireless companding schemes that are restricted by a fixed compression ratio, this technology utilizes a variable compression ratio. The result is the elimination of wireless artifacts during quiet passages and superior dynamic range.


  • Operates in H5 frequency band (518-542 MHz)
  • 300-ft. operating range
  • Auto frequency selection & auto transmitter setup for easy scanning & identification of clear channels
  • 1-button transmitter-receiver sync
  • 4 rubber bumpers for receiver chassis for scratch-free table setup & secure stacking
  • Multi-function LCD for group, channel, frequency, transmitter battery strength, & locked/unlocked status
  • 130° pickup angle for lapel
