A discrete clip-on cardioid lavaliere wireless system that is perfect for field reporters.
The Sennheiser ew 122-p G3 Cardioid Lavalier Wireless System includes an ME 4 clip-on cardioid microphone. This is a great wireless setup for electronic news gathering. Extraneous background noise gets blocked thanks to the wireless system's high-directivity. Reception stays strong as the upgraded receiver's line cable functions as a second antenna for adaptive-diversity operation.
Both the Sennheiser SK 100 G3 bodypack transmitter and the EK 100 G3 diversity receiver boast sturdy metal housings, have illuminated graphic displays, 4-step battery indication, and can be synchronized via wireless infrared interfaces. The system has a pilot tone squelch for eliminating RF interference when the transmitter is turned off. An automatic frequency scanner searches for available frequencies.
