Sennheiser’s EW112P B-Band G3 wireless mic system features three different components: there’s the ME 2 clip on mic, the bodypack transmitter, and the diversity receiver, which can be mounted on a camera for easy use. The wireless mic transmits on the B band between 626 and 668 MHz. This combination is great for recording and reporting out in the field where more powerful mics are not an option. The portability and flexibility of this package is going to win over a lot of people.
The EW112P’s clip on mic is designed to reproduce speech in a very clear and natural way, making it easy to both hear and understand. The bodypack transmitter is as compact as one can be, while the diversity receiver easily clips onto the shoe mount of any camera. This mic is capable of providing the same quality sound asy ou’d get in a professional TV studio, even if the elements are against you. There’s nothing more you need, either—this package contains everything requires to record sound.
Here are a few additional features found on the EW112P: it has an enhanced frequency bank system that is capable of 12 different frequencies. It eliminates RF interference when you have the transmitter off, and it uses adaptive-diversity reception to transmit without any loose of signal integrity. Everything is done wirelessly. The system is easy to set up and modify, too, thanks to its illuminated graphic display and user-friendly menu. It’s all right at your fingertips!
Sennheiser has addressed the issue of finding an open channel, too. You can visit their website to get a list of the nearest and farthest channels being used so you can pick an open one, or you can set the transmitter to scan mode, and it will find a vacant channel.
For everything you get in this pack, you won’t find a better deal. The EW112P can be found for $599.
