Sennheiser reveals XS Wireless system at BSC Expo debut

Sennheiser will reveal its brand new entry-level XS Wireless Digital radio mics at the BSC Expo in London on 1-2 February.

Designed for DSLRs and video cameras alike, XSW-D enables wireless audio which can be used worldwide with no licence required. There are four kits to choose from, or select à la carte from individual components. 

 

Four features of the XSW-D are: 

1. XSW-D works in the 2.4 GHz frequency spectrum and allows for up to 75m/ 250 ft of range.

2. It's easy to use with a simple button operation. Just press the button on both the transmitter and the receiver to power up and link or power down. Also click one button if you want to mute the audio. 

3. The receiver mounts to the accessory shoe of your camera with the included mount while the transmitter is connected to your dynamic handheld microphone or lavalier microphone. 

4. There's a five hour battery time and it can be charged via USB.
