About the Samson Stage XPD2
Today's versatile portable electronic devices let you record podcasts, shoot videos, and create all kinds of social media content. When you're looking for a wireless microphone setup to use with your portable device, you need USB connectivity, simple setup, and the sound quality to let you to be understood clearly. Samson's Stage XPD2 digital wireless system gives you all this and more in a simple, affordable system that covers all the basis with a minimum of fuss.
Sending and receiving
The system is made up of Samson's PXD1 beltpack transmitter, LM10 omnidirectional lavalier microphone, and RXD2 USB receiver. The PXD1 transmitter operates on the 2.4GHz frequency band for global, license-free operation. Two AA batteries give you up to 20 hours of battery life with a beltpack that weighs just over three ounces. A handy volume control lets you set the transmitter's output level. And with a broadcast range of 100 feet (line of sight) you'll have plenty of room to move.
Pairing the RXD2 USB receiver to the transmitter is simplicity itself—a single press of the receiver's Pair button and voila! The receiver connects directly to your computer's USB port, as well as to Samson mixers with a USB wireless port; iOS and Android handheld devices require an adapter (sold separately). You can monitor the signal using the receiver's 3.5mm line/headphone output. A Status indicator light lets you know when you're connected.
Clip it on
The LM10 lavalier microphone clips to your clothing for an unobtrusive look, and connects to the beltpack via a 3-pin connector. Its omnidirectional frequency response means it'll pick up your voice even if it's not aimed precisely at your sweet spot. The included foam windscreen cuts down on background noise.
Samson's Stage XPD2 is an inexpensive, easy-to-use digital wireless system that lets you get the most from your portable devices.

Overview: The Samson Stage XPD2 Digital Wireless USB headset microphone is ideal for recording or amplifying speeches, seminars, lectures, or for live streaming events. It can also be useful for leading an exercise class or a guided tour. The wireless system is compatible with most digital audio software and voice recognition software, and allows you to record straight to your computer. The system includes the LM8 lavalier microphone, the Stage PXD1 wireless beltpack transmitter, and the RXD2 USB wireless receiver.
LM8 Lavalier Microphone: The LM8 lavalier microphone is designed for discreet spoken word presentations, such as lectures or seminars. The clip-on mic gives you the freedom to walk around and use your hands without having to worry about holding a microphone or being tethered by a mic cable. The tiny microphone is attached to a 46" cable that terminates into a mini-XLR plug which plugs directly into the beltpack transmitter. The microphone includes a clip for attaching it to your shirt or lapel, and a foam windscreen.
