Who Is This Wireless Mic System Best Suited For?

  • Person-on-the-street interviewers
  • Mobile journalist
  • Video shooters
  • VLoggers

A System Anybody Can Operate

It’s a cordless microphone system with legendary Sennheiser sound quality in a one-button, plug-and-record digital system that anybody can operate. Plug the wireless microphone system in, turn it on and you’re instantly ready to go, promptly easing your workload so you can focus on being creative.

Plug & Play

The one-LED, one-button design with single-button interface and status indicator easily handles power and connection responsibilities for you. The receiver and transmitter are pre-paired by the manufacturer so when you power on the system, it just works—without the need for any extra button pressing. For best results, utilisation of the XSW-D is suggested in surroundings with limited Wi-Fi / 2.4 GHz traffic.

One System, Many Uses

This Sennheiser wireless microphone system is provided with a plug-on transmitter that turns handheld dynamic mics of your choosing into a wireless microphone. Otherwise, for boom work you can use the transmitter with a self-powered shotgun mic. In addition, for capturing crisp-sounding video shoots and dialog for interviews the camera-mount receiver connects to a tablet/smartphone (via an adaptor), DSLR or a camcorder.

Unboxing The Wireless Mic System

The very lightweight and compacted plug-on transmitter allows you to link to any battery-powered shotgun mic or dynamic microphone equipped with an XLR connector. The transmitter is intended to just transmit signal from a microphone (not from a recorder or mixer) and it doesn’t offer phantom power. The similarly unobtrusive and lightweight receiver mounts to your camera shoe mount with the provided adaptor. The included coiled cable also allows you to connect the 3.5mm output to the 3.5mm audio input of your camera.

Sennheiser Sound Quality At Your Fingertips

Sennheiser cordless microphone systems are a trade standard, valued by professionals for their clearness and dependability. The XSW-D wireless microphone system lets budget-conscious and first-time users take advantage of genuine Sennheiser sound quality without the need for deep pockets.

Easy 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless

Nothing ruins a take like receiving the police report coming through your mic in the middle of a shoot. Unlike traditional analog wireless microphones, the XSW-D digital system functions in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, away from disruptions and dropouts triggered by TV and radio channel intrusion. Thanks to Sennheiser’s channel distribution and intrusion management technology, the system picks the best working frequency and robotically changes to a fresh channel, offering dependable transmission at a distance of up to 76 metres (line of sight). For ideal performance, users are encouraged to preserve as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver.

License-Free Operation Worldwide

Because the XSW-D system operates in the license-free 2.4 GHz band, you don’t have to worry about local licensing laws, frequency coordination and other technical hassles. Just allow the system to choose a channel for you and start recording, whether you’re working at home or anyplace on the globe.

Extend Your System As Needed

The functionality of this Sennheiser XSW-D Portable Interview Set wireless microphone can effortlessly be extended by additional XSW-D Series transmitters, as your requirements grow. With this set, adding the Sennheiser XSW-D Mini Jack TX 3.5mm bodypack transmitter lets you connect either a Sennheiser-compatible lavalier or headset mic of your choosing for presentations or single-person interviews.
