In this guide we will analyze the 7 best wireless Sennheiser wireless microphones on the market, but first let’s try to clarify what a wireless microphone is, what it is used for and what main features it has.

One of the advantages of wireless radio microphones is that they are completely free of the encumbrance and limitations given by the connection cable: a wireless handheld radio microphone, therefore, allows greater freedom of movement than a wired microphone. One of the most important aspects to take into account when deciding to buy a wireless radio microphone is the range, i.e. up to what distance from the receiver the microphone can work best without suffering distortion or interference. Professional wireless microphones can have a range of up to 100 meters, but obviously this distance is to be considered in the absence of particular obstacles that could considerably weaken the signal.

As far as connectivity is concerned, the wireless microphones are specifically designed to be interfaced with most dedicated audio and video devices with standard Jack and 3.5 mm inputs.

As far as transmission is concerned, there are two different types of transmission on the market, one analog and one digital. Analog broadcasting works on VHF and UHF frequencies, while digital broadcasting is less prone to interference or signal interruptions, as it uses a signal network as a sort of internet router. Precisely for this reason, a digital broadcast is better than an analog one in terms of sound quality.

There are various types of wireless microphones on the market. They, in addition to the price, differ according to the different needs of the user. The classic portable wireless microphone works thanks to a receiver capable of transmitting audio output through an amplifier or speaker. The lack of threads ensures great flexibility and does not limit who uses it in terms of freedom of movement. The wireless lavalier microphone, on the other hand, is a particular radio microphone that is very different from the previous type. It is a very small device used especially on TV during interviews. It is also referred to as a pin microphone and is generally attached to a shirt or dress and placed near the speaker’s mouth, so as to intercept the voice without any problem in terms of clarity. These devices work with a small wire and rubber clip to hold the receiver in place. The person also wears a transmitter attached to their shoulders; the microphone connects to another recording device such as a computer or laptop. Another type of microphone is that for wireless headphones, a particular device that bends in front of the user’s mouth, very convenient to use during interviews or other scenic situations.

But now we come in particular to Sennheiser wireless microphones, a brand specialized in quality audio products for more than 70 years: they are devices that all offer excellent value for money, since they are specially designed for those with particular business needs, and therefore he is willing to spend a fair amount to satisfy them.
