Sennheiser and Neumann have unveiled a limited edition vocal set that combines Sennheiser’s evolution wireless 500 G4 microphone system with the Neumann KK 205 true condenser capsule.
Named ew 500 G4-KK205, the kit brings the Neumann sound to a wider as until now the German company’s microphone heads had been reserved for Sennheiser’s 2000, 6000 and 9000 wireless series.
Based on Neumann’s award-winning series of wired KMS stage microphones, the KK 205 true condenser microphone head features exceptional clarity and the characteristic Neumann sound. The super-cardioid capsule delivers an immediate, emotional vocal sound with airy trebles and fast transient response. The KK 205 can take sound pressure levels of up to 150dB without clipping, ensures high gain before feedback and offers good lateral isolation towards other on-stage sound sources.
The ew 500 G4 wireless microphone system offers up to 50mW of transmission power and a switching bandwidth of 88 MHz, which gives engineers sufficient room to maneuver in the busy RF spectrum. The system is available in all standard UHF frequency ranges and comes complete with the handheld transmitter, capsule, rack-mount receiver, rack-mount kit, microphone clip and power supply.
The ew 500 G4-KK205 is available from 1 October until 31 December 2018.
