The Lewitt MTP-550-DM is a handheld vocal microphone that can be used for a variety of live performance applications for bands, singers, venues, lecturers, and more. It features a gold-plated XLR output connector and a cardioid polar pattern.
The Lewitt MTP-550-DM Handheld Dynamic Microphone is a handheld performance workhorse offering high gain before feedback, low handling noise, and zero hassle. The Lewitt Audio presents the new vocal performance standard in the shape of Lewitt MTP-550-DM.
The New Classic - Modern Sound Maximum Ruggedness
The Lewitt MTP 550 DM puts its focus on the main qualities of a professional handheld performance microphone – high gain before feedback, detailed, rich and modern sound, easy handling and ruggedness. The Lewitt MTP 550 DM features an improved internal shock-mount - the capsule is fully rubber-mounted - that makes for exceptionally low handling noise. The Lewitt MTP 550 DMs variant is additionally equipped with an on/off switch.
Best Sound Performance
The frequency response of the Lewitt MTP 550 DM capsule is shaped specifically for demanding vocal applications and provides consistently rich and powerful output in any live setting. A built-in spherical wind and pop-filter efficiently prevents unwanted hissing sounds and popping plosives.
The Lewitt MTP 550 DM has an amazingly consistent polar pattern. And even with more than half of the wire-mesh cup covered it will not lose any rear rejection. Everything below the LEWITT ring can be cloaked by the full hand of the artist without causing the FOH engineer to even lift a single finger.
Lowest Handling Noise
The Lewitt Audio's internal dual shock mount system achieves the most effective handling noise elimination. Refined rubber suspensions provide the best possible dampening of unwanted structure-borne noise caused by hand-movement.
The structure-in-structure architecture is the basis for the MTP series' ruggedness. The outside enclosure of wire-mesh cup and ring is made of sturdy spring steel while the body consists of durable zinc die cast parts. The inner enclosure is made of resilient but lightweight nylon reinforced ABS. This design ensures the best possible protection for rough daily touring routines.
The Better Workhorse
The Lewitt MTP 550 DM focuses on the main qualities of a professional handheld performance microphone – high gain before feedback, detailed, rich and authentic sound, easy handling and ruggedness. The Lewitt MTP 550 DM and DMs feature an improved internal shock-mount, with the capsule of the Lewitt MTP 550 DM and DMs fully rubber-mounted to ensure exceptionally low handling noise. A built-in spherical wind screen and pop filter compliments the specifically vocal adapted frequency response to provide consistently rich and powerful output in any setting. The small switch on the Lewitt MTP 550 DMs variant efficiently prevents accidental operation and unwanted handling noise. This high-performance cardioid dynamic handheld vocal performance microphone is a must-have in any professional live mic set.

Love the heft and build quality. The foam windscreen is very tight fitting, and requires a bit more effort than other mics. Most importantly, it sounds great. There is one thing I wish was different...I've got it running through an Allen & Heath ZEDi-10, and it requires 99.5% gain to have a decent signal level. Not sure if that's a function of the mic or the pre-amps on the mixer. Maybe a bit of both?
