The Polsen ULWS-216-H is a dual 16-channel UHF wireless handheld microphone system designed to transmit ready-for-broadcast audio up to 140' in clubs, conferences, houses of worship, lectures, and more. This frequency-agile system features a true diversity receiver and two wireless handheld microphone transmitters along with all the accessories you'll need to get started. With 16 channels across 25 MHz of bandwidth in the future-proof 500 MHz frequency band and 10mW of RF output power, it delivers strong, versatile, and reliable signal with minimal interference for a wide variety of applications.

The receiver boasts balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" outputs to accommodate connection to the low-impedance mic inputs on a mixing console or the line inputs of a portable PA system. Its dual antennas are detachable and adjustable. The front panel's controls and displays allow easy configuration and clear viewing of system parameters.

Each microphone utilizes a dynamic capsule for high SPL handling and a cardioid polar pattern for off-axis noise rejection. Up to eight hours of operating time is granted by the included AA batteries. The system is comprised of the receiver, microphones, batteries, antennas, and DC power supply.

 

Versatile Broadcast-Quality Sound

The UHF wireless microphone system is designed to provide broadcast-quality audio for announcements, interviews, lectures, concerts, conferences, live shows, and presentations.

Simple Frequency-Agile System

Offering 16 channels to circumvent interference from other components and devices in the vicinity, the frequency-agile system is simple to configure. Select matching channels on the receiver and transmitters, then you're good to go.

True Diversity Receiver

Two independent receiver circuits, each with an adjustable antenna, are monitored by a comparison circuit that selects the strongest incoming signal. This reduces dropouts and RF interference for a reliable and steady signal.

Balanced and Unbalanced Outputs

Each channel's balanced XLR 3-pin output delivers a mic-level signal and minimizes RFI/EMI through common-mode rejection. An unbalanced 1/4" TS output per channel allows easy connection to unbalanced inputs on mixers or portable PA systems.

Handheld Cardioid Dynamic Transmitter

The included Polsen ULW-16-HHT handheld microphone transmitter utilizes a dynamic capsule and cardioid polar pattern to provide quality sound ready for broadcast. The cardioid polar pattern offers on-axis directivity while rejecting off-axis sounds such as background noise and stage bleed. A windscreen is supplied for attenuating vocal plosives and taming wind noise.

Ready for the Future

FCC regulations have reallocated wireless frequencies and deemed the 600 MHz frequency band largely prohibited. Since the ULWS-216 system functions in the 500 MHz band, it's compliant with current and future FCC laws.

Long-Distance Operating Range

The system's operating range of up to 140' allows you to maintain a strong signal while your subjects move or your camera position is changed. Under optimum conditions such as line-of-sight placement and tightly controlled RF interference, the range can extend to 300'.

Convenient Powering Options

The handheld transmitter can be powered via rechargeable NiMH batteries (available separately) or the included AA batteries, which grant approximately eight hours of operating time.

Does the belt pack use a standard 1/8&quot; jack for the lavalier. Is there a version available for use with a headworn mic instead of a lavalier?
Asked by: Leland
Yes the Polsen ULWS-216 Dual 16-Channel UHF Wireless Lavalier Microphone System is a standard 3.5mm connector. But it does not come in a headset version. You could buy a 3.5mm headset from another manufacturer but there is no way to know if it would be wired the same way as the Polsen lav.
