At only 5mm, the UL4 still provides a visually discreet, subminiature profile, and a snap-fit windscreen is included. Shure’s Plex cabling features a dual-resistant ground to provide good shielding from interference. The cable is only 1.6mm in diameter and is engineered to resist any memory effects and kinks.
