The Samson Stage 55 True Diversity Wireless Earset System (Channel 18 / 174.5 MHz) includes an ST5 Bodypack Transmitter, an SE10 Earset Microphone with 3.5mm mini plug & accessories, an SR55 Receiver, an AC500 Power Supply, a 1/4" output cable, and an AC adapter. With the Stage 55 Wireless Earset System, you get high-quality reception and crystal clear sound in a VHF system.

The ST5 Bodypack Transmitter features a mini 1/8" (3.5mm) microphone input connector that is compatible with Samson lavalier and headworn microphones, as well as instrument cables (sold separately). The power output is rated at 20mW (U.S.) resulting in clear reception with a range of up to 300' (under ideal conditions). The bodypack is powered for up to 6 hours via a single 9V alkaline battery (not included).

The SR55 Receiver features true diversity wireless technology. The diversity design houses 2 antennas and a receiver circuit in a single chassis. The advanced circuit design continuously scans RF signals from the 2 antennas and determines which one has the clearest and strongest reception, after which it automatically and silently switches that signal to the receiver. The receiver features variable squelch, 6-segment LED RF level, and audio level metering, dual front-mounted antennas, and XLR and 1/4" outputs.

The SE10 Omnidirectional Earset Microphone is a low-profile, micro-miniature condenser microphone with a 3mm capsule that provides high-quality audio reproduction. Its moisture-resistant design makes it suitable for presentation, fitness, and other vocal applications. The 4 cable adapters included with this mic allow it to be used with popular wireless transmitters of other brands. The mic connects to the ST5 Bodypack Transmitter via its detachable cable with a 3.5mm connector.
