Wedemark, Germany (April 26, 2022)—Sennheiser has introduced its new XS Wireless IEM system, aimed at emerging musicians. XSW IEM it intended to be something of a starter set, designed with a focus on providing simple, professional UHF range personal monitoring.
The Sennheiser XS Wireless IEM system uses the UHF band, with aligned and pre-calculated frequency presets to get musicians started; transmission frequencies can also be selected manually. Backlit displays on both the receiver bodypack and the rack-mount transmitter provide information readily, and the system offers a limiter to protect users’ hearing, as well as a high-frequency boost to increase detail and intelligibility.
Users can opt for a mono mix (one mix, and the pan control adjusts the volume for the left and right ear) or a stereo mix. The latter provides two options: With Focus mode switched off, the pan control will change the left/right volume; with Focus mode switched on, it will determine which of the two input signals will be heard louder, creating a personal mono mix tailored to the musician’s needs.
