Sennheiser Wireless Microphones. Professional Wireless Microphones
As technology has advanced, products which were once only available for top-level broadcast applications have become commonplace and are now within the reach of a far greater number of users. Even more exciting is the fact that the quality and features available in most of these products would have been unfathomable even just a few years ago. One area which has been revolutionized by this technological quantum leap is professional wireless microphones.
While wireless technology is certainly nothing new, the advent of large-scale integration has brought features such as user-selectable channels and, perhaps more importantly, computer monitoring of receiver performance into the mainstream. While there are a number of outstanding units available from a seemingly endless list of manufacturers, this discussion will look specifically at Sennheiser wireless microphones.
Sennheiser’s history began in 1945, when they began to produce voltmeters. They produced their first microphones in 1958. Since that time, their MD421 microphone has become an industry standard product in both broadcast and recording applications. Sennheiser also branched out into avionics headsets and other equipment related to professional and business communications, including studio-quality headphones. They introduced their first line of professional wireless microphones in 1982, receiving rave reviews. Sennheiser has continued with a proven track record of quality, durability, and simply stunning sound quality.
The current line of Sennheiser wireless microphones combines the natural sound reproduction their hard-wired microphones are known for with crystal-clear, dependable wireless systems which perform as well as (and frequently better than) a hard-wired system. As one would expect from a world-leading manufacturer, their systems are at the top of the quality heap, with features and dependability few can match.
At this point, I’m sure that many are wondering if they really need to even consider entering the world of professional wireless microphones, to which I would respond with a resounding, “YES!” Here are a few reasons why:
- A quality wireless system can add freedom to your presentations. For example, let’s say you’re in the middle of a demonstration of some type and decide to take questions from the audience. Sennheiser wireless microphones give you the flexibility to go out into the audience, rather than making them come to you. In many settings, this can add an air of spontaneity to your presentation and bring you closer to your audience, both literally and figuratively.
- Freedom from trip hazards. When microphone cables are present, it’s almost unavoidable that somebody is going to trip over them at least once. While this can be incredibly inconvenient, it can also present a significant safety hazard. Particularly in situations where multiple microphones are involved, professional wireless microphones will create a safer, less cluttered stage area.
- Freedom from electrical shock. While the visual “wow factor” of wireless systems may seem to be the most obvious benefit, an often overlooked advantage is the fact that the microphone is not directly connected to any potential shock hazards. This becomes especially important in applications where water may be a factor, such as a baptistery. Since the transmitters in Sennheiser wireless microphones are powered by 2 AA batteries totaling 3 volts, shock hazards are eliminated. Having received a number of electrical shocks from microphones over the years, I can personally attest that this alone is worth the price of admission.
All of Sennheiser’s professional wireless microphones feature outstanding quality and freedom from dropouts, along with naturally great sound. Once you have experienced the freedom afforded by professional wireless microphones, you’ll never want to go back to using a cable.
