Sennheiser has introduced its Encore HS1 PerformanceHead-Worn Microphone System for professional broadcast and live performance applications. The modular head-worn system is designed to be used withthe company's ME 105 supercardioid capsule; it will also accommodate both ME 102 omni-directional and ME 104 cardioid capsules.

Available in beige or black, the lightweight brass-tube construction of the Encore HS1 offers high mechanical strength. The fully adjustable telescopic headband suits a variety of hands-free applications while fully maintaining capsule position. The headset is available with integrated cables that can be used with Sennheiser's 3000, 5000 or EW Series belt-pack wireless transmitters.

The ME 105 miniature condenser capsule uses a supercardioid pickup pattern that, coupled with the close address distance of the headset, offers optimal isolation with very effective feedback rejection and rear-field noise suppression. Other features include high-SPL handling, uniform directivity across its full frequency range and an optimized low-end frequency response.
