Sennheiser Announces New EW-D Digital Wireless Microphone System Now Available at B&H
B&H is very excited to announce that Sennheiser’s new Evolution Wireless Digital microphone systems are now available at our SuperStore and on our website. Based on the equidistant grid technology from the company’s top-tier 6000 and 9000 wireless systems, the EW-Ds provide up to 90 channels of wireless audio with ultralow latency and professional-quality digital sound that anybody, even first-time wireless users, can set up quickly and easily.
The system’s new, redesigned transmitter inputs offer a staggering 134 dB dynamic range, meaning input sensitivity adjustments are simply not required. The EW-D delivers nuanced, crystal-clear 24-bit digital audio and uses Intelligent Diversity Switching to reduce dropouts and ensure clean, interference-free transmission at a maximum range of 330′ under ideal conditions. The system operates in a wide 56 MHz UHF bandwidth, giving it the ability to secure a clean channel from 2250 available frequencies.

A Bluetooth low-energy connection allows for automated frequency scan, channel naming, mutes, and other controls on up to 16 mic channels, which can be handled remotely on an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, with additional channels controlled at the receiver. This BLE connection also allows users to pair the transmitter and receiver from up 120′ away. The system offers an operating range of up to 330′ and features a half-rack, installation-ready receiver with an easily readable OLED screen that’s well suited to event spaces, corporate facilities, educational institutions, houses of worship, and performance venues.
The components are built with durable metal chassis designed to handle the rigors of constant use. Both the handheld and bodypack transmitters will operate for up to 8 hours on AA batteries, but separately available rechargeable battery packs provide up to 12 hours of run time. A dual-charging station for the batteries is also available.
Additional features of the system include:
- Ultralow 1.9ms latency helps musicians and performers to maintain timing.
- Mute buttons on transmitters can be locked out and overridden from receiver or mobile device.
- Two-stage output gain control on receiver.
- Rackmount kit included.
- Removable ¼-wave antennas included; front mounting, ½-wave, and external antenna options available.
The Evolution Wireless Digital is available in a variety of sets that include a bodypack transmitter or a handheld mic transmitter. The handheld versions feature an interchangeable microphone capsule system and can be purchased with an 835 dynamic cardioid capsule or without a capsule at all, allowing users to choose from a wide variety of Sennheiser and Neumann options. Bodypack sets can be purchased without a microphone, or with an ME 2-II omnidirectional lavalier, an ME 4 cardioid lav, an ME 3 headset mic, or a CI 1 instrument cable for guitar and bass players. Combo sets with a bodypack and a handheld transmitter are also available. There are three UHF frequency ranges to choose from; the Q 1-6 spans from 470.2 to 526 MHz, the R 1-6 from 520 to 576, and the R 4-9 covers 552 to 607.8.
Sennheiser’s winning combination of industry-renowned reliability, outstanding digital sound quality, easy mobile device operation, and high channel counts makes the EW-D a remarkably powerful and versatile wireless solution.
