Wedemark, Germany (June 2, 2021)—Taking aim at the entry-level wireless mic market, Sennheiser has introduced its Evolution Wireless Digital series of live sound microphones, which are managed using an app-based workflow.
Aiming to simplify use and adoption of wireless mics for musicians and emerging engineers, Evolution Wireless Digital (EW-D) offers various features that are controlled by the accompanying Smart Assist App, which guides users through system set-up. Using the app, users can create wireless connections, name channels to stay organize, and have access to all system settings. Bluetooth Low Energy allows for remote access to the system, and the app also includes tutorial videos as necessary.
Evolution Wireless Digital transmitters have an input dynamic range of 134 dB. The receiver has been set to a gain value covering most applications, according to Sennheiser, but can be changed if desired.
In terms of managing RF and conflicting signals, the Smart Assist App will scan the environment to find open frequencies. Adapting tech from Sennheiser’s Digital 6000 and Digital 9000 series, the wireless microphone systems reportedly do not generate any significant intermodulation products. This not only makes for more room in a given frequency window, but the app can also simply set the wireless links at 600 kHz intervals without any frequency calculation.
EW-D has latency of 1.9 milliseconds and a transmitter battery life of up to 12 hours with the BA 70 rechargeable battery pack. It additionally offers a bandwidth of 56 MHz with up to 90 channels per band.
EW-D handheld transmitters couple with any Sennheiser or Neumann wireless capsule.
