The Sennheiser XSW 35 Handheld Wireless Microphone System is the ideal tool for singers. It’s also a great microphone for presenters and speakers, providing great sound at an affordable price.
The XSW 35 kit contains a SKM 35 handheld microphone transmitter and a EM 10 receiver. This wireless microphone system is for use on frequencies in the Channel 38 frequency range (606 – 614 MHz). Therefore, an Ofcom licence is a legal requirement before using this equipment.
The Sennheiser XSW 35 Handheld allows up to twelve channels to be in use simultaneously. Eight frequency “banks” are available; each can have a maximum of twelve preset channels. Frequencies can be set manually in steps of 25kHz, or by selecting a frequency bank and then a preset channel. The EM10 receiver can scan for a unused channel within a frequency bank and select it.
By pressing the sync button on the transmitter and then the sync button on the receiver, the settings on the transmitter will synchronize with the settings on the receiver.
The SKM 35 has a cardioid dynamic capsule offering high feedback rejection and the “classic” e 835 sound to cut through high noise levels. A built-in LCD display shows the selected frequency and the battery life remaining. There’s also a mute button and a power LED which flashes when the batteries are low (2 x AA). Finally, there’s a power on/off button and a switch for the input sensitivity control.
The EM10 receiver is a diversity receiver with two rear antennae. It has a balanced output on XLR which is switchable between mic and line level, and an unbalanced jack output. An LCD display on the front panel shows frequency, channel, bank, sync, RF and audio levels on bar-graph meters. Battery status of the transmitter is also viewable.
