About the Sennheiser Portable Lavalier Set
Sennheiser has created the XSW-D series as a small, lightweight, easy-to-use solution for videographers and other users who want the flexibility of wireless without the hassle and expense of a big, bulky transmitter and receiver. The XSW-D Portable Lavalier Set gives you a simple and unobtrusive system that allows maximum freedom of movement.
Light and compact
The Portable Lavalier Set features compact, lightweight transmitter and receiver modules that are simple to set up. The modules are paired at the factory, so they're ready to go as soon as you power them up, and they fit easily into your equipment case. You can have up to four transmitters paired to the receiver simultaneously, but only one transmitter can be used at a time. When you want to switch transmitters, just turn off the one that's in use, and turn the second one on. That's all there is to it!
The Portable Interview Set's ME-2 lavalier microphone plugs directly into the transmitter with a 1/8-inch coiled cable (included). Its companion receiver mounts to your digital SLR camera's cold shoe accessory mount with a convenient adapter, and plugs into the camera's audio input jack using a short coiled cable with standard 3.5mm plugs. The transmitter and receiver are powered by internal lithium-ion batteries with up to five hours of battery life per charge which are recharged using the included USB-A to USB-C cable. A single control button serves as a on/off switch and also allows you to mute either module.
The system broadcasts at 2.4 GHz for crystal-clear reception and has a range of up to 250 feet, giving you plenty of room to work. This small, lightweight solution lets you work and speak without the distraction of cables or the bulk of a larger system, and it's so easy to set up. Wouldn't you like to be more free?
