Sennheiser EW 500 G4-KK205 Wireless Handheld Microphone System with Neumann KK 205 Capsule
The Sennheiser EW 500 G4-KK205 is an easy-to-use rackmount wireless handheld microphone system that combines the professional-level features of Sennheiser’s EW 500 G4 wireless series with the highly regarded audio quality of Neumann’s KK 205 condenser capsule. It offers variable RF power, an exceptionally wide tuning range, Ethernet networking for multi-channel setups, and an intuitive interface with an OLED display and jog wheel. The system delivers high-quality, reliable audio to presenters, clergy, lecturers, and performers working in business and educational settings, houses-of-worship, theaters, or on musical stages.
The EW 500 G4-KK205 includes a true-diversity, half-rack receiver housed in a rugged, full-metal chassis. The receiver’s auto-scan function searches an 88 MHz UHF tuning range with 3520 selectable frequencies available, seeking out a clean, interference-free channel for your audio transmission. The high-contrast OLED display with automatic dimming, along with a convenient jog wheel allow you make quick adjustments, even in low-light situations.
This system includes an SKM 500 G4 handheld transmitter equipped with an interchangeable KK 205 condenser mic capsule optimized for speech and active vocal performances. The handheld transmitter provides up to 8 hours of operation on two AA batteries, with a selectable 10/30/50mW RF power output for overcoming interference in difficult RF environments. The transmission range is up to 330′.
The Ethernet connection on the receiver supports Wireless Systems Manager (WSM) control software for advanced frequency coordination in multi-channel setups. Up to 32 wireless mics can operate simultaneously in the same space.
The EW 500 G4-KK205 is backward-compatible with all previous evolution systems. You can mix and match G4/G3/G2/G1 receivers or bodypack, handheld, and plug-on transmitters. It is also compatible with EW 100 and EW 300 systems.
Lightweight Handheld Transmitter with Neumann KK 205 Supercardioid Capsule
The SK 500 G4 is powered via two AA batteries or a rechargeable BA 2015 Accupack battery (available separately). An LA 2 charging adapter (available separately) allows for recharging the Accupack without removing it from the transmitter—requires the L 2015 quick-charging unit (available separately).
The transmitter’s interchangeable capsule design allows you to use a variety of optional dynamic and condenser mic capsules, with pickup patterns ranging from wide omnidirectional to narrow supercardioid —capsules include the MMD 835, MMD 845, MME 865, MMD 935, MMD 945, and MMD 42.
Easy-to-Operate Receiver with True-Diversity Reception
To prevent interference, the EM 300-500 receiver’s true-diversity reception compares incoming signals on two independent receiver circuits to ensure optimal RF quality. To ensure crystal clear audio, Sennheiser’s proprietary HDX compander technology maximizes the microphone’s signal-to-noise ratio, while avoiding RF noise.
The built-in equalizer enables you to change the frequency response of the output signal; you can reduce the bass range and boost the treble range. The receiver also offers an adjustable output level range of 48 dB to match the audio input of your mixing board or PA system.
A headphone output with volume control is conveniently located on the front panel, allowing you to monitor your audio signal.
The back panel houses a balanced XLR output as well as an unbalanced 1/4″ output. A kit is included for rackmount installation. The unit comes with a universal power supply and EU, US, UK, Korea, Australia, and China adapters.
