Judging by its game-changing new Evolution Wireless Digital system, the staff at Sennheiser has been doing a lot more during lockdown than watching Netflix and baking bread. This fully digital UHF system offers a flexible and reliable solution that delivers pristine, nuanced sound with a 134 dB dynamic range for professional live events, performances, and presentations. What’s more, the EW-D does this while eliminating the major hassles that can make setting up a wireless system challenging, especially for first-time users, with an automatic setup assistant that you can use remotely from your phone or tablet. At the heart of all this is Sennheiser’s equidistant spacing-grid technology from its top-tier 6000 and 9000 systems, allowing you to use up to 90 mic channels simultaneously without having to worry about frequency coordination and channel groups. With an impressive 134 dB dynamic range on the transmitters’ inputs, the days of worrying about overloading your signal are over; the Evolution Wireless Digital can handle a wide variety of sound sources, including loud vocalists and performers, connections to musical instruments, and even line-level signals from mixers, all without requiring any gain adjustment at the transmitter. With the channels spaced apart equally across the wide 56 MHz bandwidth, intermodulation issues that can cause dropouts are eliminated and setup is made simple. The auto-scan function automatically searches among 2240 available frequencies in the UHF range, far away from the crowded 2.4 GHz spectrum used by Wi-Fi devices, to find a clean operating channel, while Intelligent Switching Diversity technology ensures a clean, interference-free signal you can rely on. You don’t even need to bring the transmitter close to the receiver to sync the components; that’s handled by a Bluetooth low-energy connection, so the transmitter can stay on stage and sync from up to 120 feet away. Bluetooth Low-Energy Connection The Bluetooth low-energy connection offers additional benefits via the EW-D Smart Assist app for Android and iOS phones and tablets; it’s a bit like having an engineer at your side ready to help. The app shows you battery status and gives you remote control over setup automation, manual frequency allocation (if you need it), channel naming, muting, and other functions on a maximum of 16 mic channels, via your mobile device. Additional channels can be controlled from another mobile device. Of course, settings can be updated directly from the receiver’s front panel, which offers status LEDs you can see at a glance and an easily readable OLED screen showing important settings, including transmitter battery life along with audio and wireless signal strength. Musicians and performers will also especially appreciate the EW-D’s ultralow 1.9 ms latency specs, helping them to stay in the groove and be spot-on at critical moments. The system offers an operating range of 330' under ideal conditions, more than ample range for a wide variety of applications for corporate events, houses of worship, live performance venues, and more. The lightweight, streamlined metal bodypack and handheld transmitters don’t offer unnecessary screens and controls, but they do feature mute buttons, although these can be locked out at the receiver to stop the talent from accidentally muting themselves. A pair of AA batteries will power the transmitters for up to 8 hours, but Sennheiser offers a separately available rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack that will give you up to 12 hours of operating time. A dual charging station for the batteries is also available. The half-rack receiver is housed in a fully metal chassis and rack-mounting hardware is included along with ¼-wave dipole antennas; these can be upgraded to ½-wave antennas or external antennas for added range and reliability. Wide Variety The Evolution Wireless Digital is available in a wide variety of configurations, including sets with bodypack transmitters, handheld transmitter mics, or a combo set with both. The bodypack systems include the EW-D ME2 SET  with an ME 2 omnidirectional lavalier, EW-D ME4 SET with an ME 4 cardioid lavalier, EW-D ME3 SET with an ME 3 headset mic, and EW-D CI1 SET with a CI 1 instrument cable for guitar and bass players. The handheld systems include the EW-D 835-S SET with an MMD 835 cardioid dynamic mic capsule, but the interchangeable capsule system lets you swap it out for a different Sennheiser (or even a Neumann) capsule, if you prefer. The combo EW-D ME2/835-S SET includes a bodypack with an ME 2-II lav and a handheld transmitter with an MMD 835 capsule. Base sets including transmitters only and no microphones or mic capsules are also available. Choose from three UHF frequency ranges: The Q 1-6 spans from 470.2 to 526 MHz, the R 1-6 from 520 to 576, and the R 4-9 covers 552 to 607.8. It’s been a long and quiet time for stages and events but we’re finally seeing a reopening world of exciting performances, live presentations, business opportunities, and new entertainment experiences. With their revolutionary combination of worry-free setup and pristine digital sound quality, Sennheiser’s Evolution Wireless Digital systems are arriving just in time for the party. If you have any questions about the EW-D or any of our other wireless microphone solutions, give us a call, or chat with us online—we’re always happy to help.

Thanks to significant enhancements over the original Wireless GO, including two-person shoots, onboard recording, greatly extended range, and highly flexible output options, the  RØDE Wireless GO II  compact true wireless microphone system—now in stock—lets videographers, vloggers, and mobile journalists of any experience level confidently and quickly run-and-gun in the world of wireless audio, whether recording to a camera, computer, or mobile device. Boasting secure Series IV 2.4 GHz digital transmission, easy operability, and built-in mics (lavalier mics available separately), the system is ready to go at the press of a button; you can focus on getting the shot knowing that the Wireless GO II is delivering quality audio at a range of up to 656'. There are no menus and no finicky dials, just simple power-on-and-go functionality and a bright, informative LCD screen showing you what you need to see. When you’re ready for more, use RØDE’s Mac/Windows companion app (iOS/Android apps coming soon) to access a powerful feature set and extended customization of settings—onboard transmitter recording, configurable safety track recording in dual mono mode, file playback and export, and more.            Whereas the original Wireless GO employed a single channel, version II is a dual-channel system, capable of handling two transmitters at the same time for simple, two-person shoots with low latency (3.5 to 4 ms). Since the Wireless GO II can handle two transmitters at once, it features the ability to switch between stereo or dual-mono recording. This enables each transmitter, and therefore each subject, to be recorded to a separate channel, or signal from both transmitters can be mixed together and recorded identically to left and right channels. Use the app to activate safety track recording at-20 dB on the right channel. Each transmitter provides an onboard audio recorder offering up to 7 hours of uncompressed recording or 24 hours of compressed recording, perfect for worry-free backup recording or a fast and easy way to capture sound from your subjects. Export files in various formats, such as MP3 or WAV (16-, 24-, or 32-bit float) with date and time stamp information, as well as automatic markers anywhere the transmitter-receiver link was broken. In addition to the traditional 3.5mm TRS analog output, the Wireless GO II receiver has a USB Type-C digital audio output for operation as a 24-bit / 48 kHz audio interface. This can be connected to a computer with the supplied USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable, to the Lightning port of an iOS mobile device via the RØDE SC15 cable, or to the USB Type-C port of a laptop, iPad Pro, or Android mobile device with the RØDE SC16 cable (SC15 and SC16 cables available separately). For its 2.4 GHz digital transmission and 128-bit encryption, the Wireless GO II has been improved with Series IV technology (the original Wireless GO had Series III, which is not compatible with Series IV). As a result, the line-of-sight operating range of the Wireless GO II can reach approximately 656' compared to the 230' maximum range of the original Wireless GO. Plus, it offers increased signal strength in crowded wireless environments. Capture top-notch audio quality for two subjects even if you don't have an external mic; the Wireless GO II is a complete dual-channel system comprised of two miniature clip-on transmitters (each with a built-in true wireless omnidirectional microphone capsule), a dual-channel miniature clip-on receiver, and a slew of accessories—everything you need to get up and running in the field. Whether you use each transmitter's convenient, high-caliber integrated mic or hook up the companion RØDE Lavalier GO (available separately), you're assured to achieve clear, crisp, intelligible audio. There’s much that RØDE’s Wireless GO II can do for busy videographers who can’t be slowed down by complex audio systems. Share your own ideas on how you’d use it in the Comments section, below.
