Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.
Cardiod Neumann capsule for Sennheiser wireless system.
Thanks to the combination of the KK 204 cardioid microphone capsule with the SKM 2000 system, Neumann sound is also available in the wireless domain. This opens up new sound dimensions for the most demanding live-performance engineering.
Here the key areas of expertise of Neumann and Sennheiser are united in an unprecedented manner to create products with no compromises for professional use. Neumann capsules have already been used in combination with the Sennheiser SKM 5200 system for the past 10 years on some of the largest stages of the world and at mega-events such as the Eurovision Song Contest, where the highest demands are placed on the sound and transmission reliability.
The design of Neumann capsule heads for the Sennheiser SKM 2000 handheld transmitter is based on the extremely successful, multiple award-winning wired KMS 104 stage microphones. From these microphones the capsule heads have acquired not only their outstanding sound characteristics and technical specifications, but also their robust construction and effective suppression of pop sounds and handling noise.
The sound of the capsule heads can be described as full, transparent and naturally warm, without excessive accentuation of the bass. Due to the single polar pattern design, the polar patterns are very uniform over the entire frequency range, thus providing the basis for excellent resistance to feedback.
The capsules, and also of course the transmitter unit, are available in both nickel and black. Included with the capsule heads is a large nylon bag, which can hold not only the capsule but also the handheld transmitter, battery packs and additional accessories.
The KK 204 capsule head was developed especially for the Sennheiser SKM 2000 system. Particular importance has been placed on further damping of pop sounds and handling noise, an extremely low level of self-noise, and ease of servicing. Both capsule heads have integrated foam pop protection. The foam pores have a greatly increased surface area and can keep extreme moisture away from the capsule.
