4 Commonly Asked Questions about Shure GLXD16

Last month, Shure highlighted new products at NAMM in California, including: GLXD16, SE846 earphones, and the SRH1540 headphones. All were well received, with particular praise to the GLXD16 and SE846, both of which picked up awards! See how NAMM progressed in our write about about the event.

The great thing about a show like NAMM is the opportunity to get our products in front of end-users and discover what’s on their minds! During the show a number of common questions emerged, which we will answer in a series of blog posts – starting with GLXD16.

1. What Is the Range of Shure Glxd16?

The GLXD1 bodypack will operate up to a 60 m (200 ft.) transmission radius.

2. What’s the Battery Life?

Up to 16 hours of continuous use with Shure proprietary Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries. It’s also worth noting that multiple charging solutions are available, such as: car, wall, or USB. A 15 minute quick charge, will provide up to 1.5 hours of performance.

3. Can I Use Regular Batteries?

Nope, and why would you want to? The included Lithium-Iron rechargeable batteries will typically deliver 4 – 5 years of normal use before a replacement battery is required. Just think how much cash you’ll save in AA batteries. You’ll also be doing your bit to save the planet.

4. What Frequency Band Is It In?

GLXD operates in the Digital 2.4GHz spectrum, which is globally license-free.

    I play the electric violin, usually with a lot of people around (disco, party, restaurants) My question is: with this system can I play around places with no signal lost? (no walls, just people, sometimes a lot of them)
    Thank you!!

    I own a GLXD16 and have recently noticed a “popping” sound coming from my unit. I thought it might be the LPU cable initially and then realized the ring nut on the transmitter was loose. I tightened it and the “popping” sound has reduced but I still hear a little static and am wonder if perhaps there is another piece that came off or if others have experienced something similar?

    Thank you.
