NEW SENNHEISER ESSENTIAL HEADSET AND LAVALIER MICROPHONES CLOSE THE GAP

At NAB, Sennheiser will be unveiling the brand-new “Essential” range of headset and lavalier microphones. These are much anticipated microphone solutions that close the gap between the company’s high-end solutions for broadcast, music and theatre and the microphones supplied with its best-selling evolution wireless series. Available from July 2018, the microphones connect to bodypack transmitters with 3-pin and 3.5 mm jack connectors, and are an ideal choice for houses of worship, smaller broadcasting companies, the education sector, corporate customers and small and medium-sized theatres.

HSP Essential Omni Headset Microphone

The HSP Essential Omni features an omni-directional capsule and an elegant stainless-steel headband that easily adjusts to accommodate a wide range of head sizes. Available in black and beige, the HSP Essential Omni offers customers a choice of a 3.5 mm jack connector for use with XS Wireless and evolution wireless, or a 3-pin connector for professional wireless series from 2000 to Digital 9000. The 1.3 m cable is firmly attached to the headset and will not get lost in the hectic of an event. A pop windshield is included.

MKE Essential Omni Lavalier Microphone

The MKE Essential Omni is also available in black and beige and comes with either a 3-pin or 3.5 mm jack connector. The omni-directional lavalier microphone is supplied with a crocodile clip and a pop windshield, but can also be used with the range of MKE 2 mounting accessories. Cable length is 1.6 m to accommodate different wearing styles, from concealing the microphone along the hairline for a theatrical performance to standard broadcast use as a lapel microphone.
