The Sennheiser XSW-D LAVALIER SET is an easy entry point into the world of wireless microphone audio for speakers, educators, panelists, and moderators looking for a stage-ready system that's both cost effective and simple to use. It puts world-renowned Sennheiser wireless sound quality in a miniaturized, plug-and-go, 1-button digital system that anyone can operate. Plug it in, power it up, and you're immediately up and running, streamlining your setup so you can concentrate on delivering your message to your audience with confidence.

The set offers the highly popular ME2-II omnidirectional lavalier microphone along with a bodypack transmitter and an XLR-equipped plug-in receiver, both featuring lightweight, miniature housings. The system connects to a wide variety of professional audio gear including mixing boards and portable PA systems, allowing you to capture crisp-sounding speech with the hands-free convenience of a clip-on microphone, for presentations on stage, in lecture halls, houses of worship, or conference rooms.

Unboxing the System
  • The ME2-II lavalier microphone clips to your clothing and plugs into the locking 3.5mm input on the bodypack transmitter. The transmitter is designed to only transmit signal from a mic (not from a mixer or recorder).
  • The exceptionally lightweight and compact transmitter can be easily concealed in your pocket or discreetly attached to your waist with the included belt clip.
  • Plug the compact receiver directly into the XLR input of your audio mixer or PA, and you're ready to turn the system on. The receiver cannot be phantom powered by a mixer. It needs to be charged ahead of time or used while being charged via USB.
Plug In, Turn On: It Works
  • The 1-button, 1-LED concept with single-button interface and status indicator effortlessly handles power and linking tasks for you.
  • The receiver and transmitter are pre-paired at the factory so when you turn on the system, it works—without the need for any additional button pressing.
     (For optimal results, use of the XSW-D is recommended in environments with limited Wi-Fi / 2.4 GHz traffic.)
Step Up to Sennheiser Sound Quality
  • Sennheiser wireless mic systems are an industry standard, prized by professionals for their clarity and reliability. The XSW-D system allows first-time and budget-conscious users to get their hands on genuine Sennheiser sound quality without breaking the bank.
  • The ever-popular ME2-II lavalier microphone delivers a natural sound, optimized for speech intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that the sound remains consistent, even when the talent's head moves away from the mic.
Easy 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless
  • Nothing ruins a take like hearing the weather report coming through your mic. Unlike traditional analog wireless systems, the XSW-D digital system operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, away from interruptions and dropouts caused by TV and radio channel interference.
  • Thanks to Sennheiser's channel allocation and interference management technology, the system selects the best operating frequency and automatically switches to a clean channel to provide reliable transmission at a distance up to 250' line of sight.
Expand Your System as Your Needs Grow
  • The functionality of this XSW-D LAVALIER SET can easily be expanded by adding XSW-D Series transmitters and receivers, as your needs evolve.
  • With this set, adding the XSW-D XLR female plug-on transmitter allows you to connect a dynamic handheld microphone for situations when the mic needs to be shared between speakers or passed around in the audience.
  • For clearer speech in noisy environments, you can substitute the included lav mic with a Sennheiser-compatible headset mic.
License-Free Operation Worldwide
  • Because the XSW-D system operates in the license-free 2.4 GHz band, you don't have to worry about local licensing laws, frequency coordination, and other technical hassles.
  • Simply let the system pick a channel for you, and you're ready to go—whether you're working at home or anywhere in the world.
Other Features
  • Eco-friendly USB-rechargeable lithium-ion batteries—1-hour charging to reach 50% of battery time 
  • 5-hour total battery life gives you plenty of presentation time 
  • Conveniently recharge batteries via USB while in operation or during breaks throughout the day
  • Up to five systems can be operated simultaneously in the same environment
  • Low 3.9 ms latency with aptX Live codec specifically designed to maximize digital wireless microphone performance
  • Mute from either transmitter or receiver
  • Multi-pairing lets you quickly switch between multiple transmitters linked to one receiver (note that only one transmitter can broadcast to one receiver at a time)

If this is used with a 32-bit recorder such as the tascam x8 or zoom f6, will the clipping be fixable in post?
Asked by: Zach
It is very difficult to clip a 32-bit converter, but it is still possible to overload a mic capsule if you surpass the SPL it is designed for. A 32-bit recorder won't help with this, and if you somehow do clip the ADC on the way in it won't help with that either, but it does make clipping extremely unlikely due to the amount of headroom it gives you. If you are routinely running into problems with clipping during recording, or if there is no one on hand to adjust levels on the fly, a 32-bit recorder can be a game changer.

No, there is no gain control. These are meant to be a cable replacement only. For a unit with gain control, here's a similar 2.4ghz option BH #RORODLNKFM.

Can I use this model with Canon XA40 Professional UHD 4K Camcorder?
Asked by: Sona
Yes you should be able to use this with your camera, just be sure you select the version that will feed your camera. I have standard mic inputs on my video camera and I have two sets of the Sennheiser XSW-D Lavaliers. They don't compete or block each others signal. Really one of the best purchases I have ever made.

How many charge cycles is the battery rated for? ...

How many charge cycles is the battery rated for? Many lithium ion batteries are published with ratings like 300, 500 or 1000 charge cycles and hold 80% or more after that count. And is the battery user replaceable if it no longer functions normally?
Asked by: Tony
Per Sennheiser: &quot;Customers can expect up to 1000 charging cycles with minimal effect on operating time&quot; In essence it means you'll be able to rely on this system for several years.

Does this kit include the hotshoe mount adapter to mount the receiver to the hotshoe of the camera?
Asked by: Tony
No it doesn&rsquo;t. The receiver on this particular kit is with the XLR male which is meant to be plugged into an XLR source such as mixing boards or even cameras with an XLR input. Since it&rsquo;s plugged into the XLR, a separate mounting isn&rsquo;t needed not possible. There are various other camera kits with a mini output which do come with shoe mount adapters.
