- Plug In, Turn On: It Works
The 1-button, 1-LED concept with single-button interface and status indicator effortlessly handles power and linking tasks for you.
Both transmitters are pre-paired with the receiver at the factory. All you have to do is turn on the receiver and the transmitter you want to use, and it works—without the need for any additional button pressing.
When you’re ready to use the other transmitter, simply power down the first one, turn on the second one, and the system does the switch for you (note that only one transmitter at a time can work with the receiver). (For optimal results, use of the XSW-D is recommended in environments with limited Wi-Fi / 2.4 GHz traffic.)
- Step Up to Sennheiser Sound Quality
Sennheiser wireless mic systems are an industry standard, prized by professionals for their clarity and reliability. The XSW-D system allows first-time and budget-conscious users to get their hands on genuine Sennheiser sound quality without breaking the bank.
The ever-popular ME 2-II lavalier microphone delivers a natural sound optimized for speech intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that the sound remains consistent, even when the talent’s head moves away from the mic.
- Easy 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless
Nothing ruins a take like hearing the weather report coming through your mic. Unlike traditional analog wireless systems, the XSW-D digital system operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, away from interruptions and dropouts caused by TV and radio channel interference.
Thanks to Sennheiser’s channel allocation and interference management technology, the system selects the best operating frequency and automatically switches to a clean channel, providing reliable transmission at a distance up to 250′ line of sight.
For optimal performance, users are encouraged to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the transmitter and receiver.
- Expand Your System as Your Needs Grow
The functionality of this XSW-D PORTABLE ENG SET can easily be expanded by adding XSW-D Series transmitters and receivers, as your needs evolve.
With this set, you can substitute the included lav mic with a Sennheiser-compatible headset mic, for clearer speech in noisy environments.
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.
Simply let the system pick a channel for you, and start recording—whether you’re working at home or anywhere in the world.
