The Sennheiser EW 100 ENG G4 camera-mount wireless combo microphone system features the proven combination of reliability, flexible control, and broadcast-quality sound that has made the EW Series an industry standard for videographers, journalists, and content creators all over the world.

Designed to accommodate a wide range of applications, the EW 100 ENG G4 gives you the tools to adapt and meet the wireless challenges that inevitably arise on set. The system includes a bodypack transmitter with an ME 2-II omnidirectional lavalier mic, great for hands-free interviews. Also included is a plug-on transmitter, which can be attached to a handheld dynamic microphone of your choice for man-on-the-street interviews or to a shotgun mic for wireless booming (both types of mics are available separately).

The camera-mount receiver connects to a camcorder or a DSLR/mirrorless camera to capture crisp-sounding speech or dialog, for projects ranging from wedding and corporate videos to documentaries and vlogs.

The EW 100 ENG G4 is backward-compatible with previous evolution systems, giving you the ability to mix and match G4/G3/G2/G1 receivers or bodypack, handheld, and plug-on transmitters. It is also compatible with EW 500 systems.

Note: While this system includes two transmitters, only one can be used at a time.

Built for Dependable Performance in the Field
  • The EW 100 ENG G4 features rugged, all-metal chassis well suited for extended use on location. The lightweight, compact bodypack transmitter is easy to conceal and offers rounded edges that are soft to the touch and comfortable for the talent to wear. A locking connector ensures that your lav doesn’t detach at a critical moment, while a convenient switch allows you to mute your mic.
  • The plug-on transmitter lets you connect any dynamic microphone or battery-powered shotgun mic equipped with an XLR connector (it does not provide phantom power). There is also a switch for muting your mic.
  • Using the included shoemount adapter, the compact receiver easily mounts on your camera without adding much weight. The included cables allow you to connect the receiver to the 3.5mm or XLR audio input of any DSLR/mirrorless, camcorder, or recording device.
  • Both transmitters and the receiver feature daylight-readable LED displays showing reception quality, battery status, and audio level. To get you going quickly, they synchronize via infrared interface with the simple push of a button.
Proven Broadcast-Quality Sound
  • The EW 100 ENG G4 ships with the popular ME 2-II omnidirectional lavalier microphone, which delivers a natural sound optimized for speech intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that the sound remains consistent, even when the speaker's head moves away from the mic.
  • To take full advantage of the microphones' dynamic range, the system employs proprietary HDX compander technology, preserving your sound without adding unwanted noise during transmission, and delivering audio with remarkable accuracy and quality.
Additional Features
  • Adaptive-diversity reception for reliable transmission up to 330'
  • 46 MHz bandwidth with 1680 tunable UHF frequencies for interference-free reception
  • Frequency scan function automatically searches for the cleanest frequency at your location
  • 20 frequency banks, each with up to 12 factory-preset channels to prevent intermodulation
  • Adjustable input sensitivity on both transmitters accommodates mic levels ranging from booming voices to quiet speech, and even line-level audio
  • Pilot tone squelch for eliminating RF noise when transmitter is turned off
  • Receiver with adjustable output range of 42 dB to match the audio input of your camera or recording device
  • User-friendly menu operation with flexible control options
  • Transmitter and receiver feature 4-step battery-life indicator
  • Auto-Lock function avoids accidental changing of settings
  • RF Mute function
  • 8 hours of battery life
  • Powered via AA batteries or rechargeable BA 2015 Accupack batteries (available separately)
  • Side contacts for recharging Accupacks without removing them from either the bodypack transmitter or receiver—requires the L 2015 quick-charging unit (available separately)
  • Operate up to 12 wireless mics at once on set
  • Unlike digital wireless systems, the EW series transmitters can transmit to an unlimited number of EW Series receivers
  • Wide range of accessories adapts the system to a variety of applications

Will the plug-on wireless transmitter attach ...

Will the plug-on wireless transmitter attach properly to a side-exit XLR boom pole (particularly K-Tek Avalon), or will it not attach firmly enough, please? Would it be necessary to buy something like a K-Tek KlassicPro upgraded to their KPTA plug-on TX adapter? Is there another brand/model of boom pole that would suit the Sennheiser plug-on TX?
Asked by: Colin
When I screw the XLR on my Sennheiser TX it actually swings out a hook to hold it tight, so I suspect this will work well with the side-exit XLR port on a boom pole. A professional boom operator does this (he has a YouTube channel showing it in action), and he confirmed it holds tight.

Can I get a shotgun mic in this kit instead of the handheld?
Asked by: Eric
The plug-on transmitter is designed to be used with dynamic microphones only, and will not work with a shotgun mic, which are condenser mics. The SKP500 will work with shotgun mics, but is not available in this kit configuration: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1385730-REG/sennheiser_skp_500_g4_gw1_skp_500_g4_pro.html

When recording do the voices show up on just Left or Right or will they be on both?
Asked by: Lisa
If you are using the Supplied cable that sports the 1/8" mini to go into your Camcorder or DSLR camera, it will show up on both the right and left channel. If however you will be using the XLR cable, it will only record it to the channel that you connected the cable to on your camera.

When using the plug-on combo, does that make you have to choose between using the receiver with the plug on or the lav mic? So if I wanted to use both at the same time, would it mean that I need to purchase a second receiver?
Asked by: Allison
Only one of the transmitters can be used at a time. So, if you want to have both the lavalier transmitter and handled plug in transmitter you will need to buy another receiver to accept that secondary signal.
