Sennheiser XSW-D PORTABLE INTERVIEW SET Overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser XSW-D PORTABLE INTERVIEW SET is a camera-mount, wireless microphone system designed for videographers, video podcasters, and mobile journalists who demand reliable results—even with limited budgets and experience levels—while working on location, in the field, and in do-it-yourself situations. It puts world-renowned Sennheiser wireless sound quality in a miniaturized, plug-and-record, 1-button digital system that anyone can use. Plug it in, power it up, and you're immediately up and running, instantly lightening your workload so you can concentrate on creating.

The XSW-D PORTABLE INTERVIEW SET is the choice for man-on-the-street interviews. This set comes with a plug-on transmitter that turns the handheld dynamic mic of your choice into a wireless microphone. Alternatively, you can use the transmitter with a self-powered shotgun mic for boom work.

The camera-mount receiver connects to a DSLR, camcorder, or a tablet/smartphone (with additional adapter) to capture crisp-sounding interviews or dialog for video shoots.

Unboxing the System
  • The exceptionally lightweight and compact plug-on transmitter lets you connect any dynamic microphone or self-powered shotgun mic equipped with an XLR connector. The transmitter is designed to only transmit signal from a mic (not from a mixer or recorder) and it does not provide phantom power.
  • The equally discreet and lightweight receiver mounts to your camera shoemount with the supplied adapter. Connect its 3.5mm output to the 3.5mm audio input of your camera via the included coiled cable, and you're ready to turn the system on.
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.
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.
Clean Audio without Drop Outs
  • 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, protecting the integrity of your signal from interruptions and drop outs caused by TV channels, radios, or other sources.
  • 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 PORTABLE INTERVIEW SET can easily be expanded by adding XSW-D Series transmitters, as your needs evolve.
  • With this set, adding the XSW-D 3.5mm bodypack transmitter allows you to connect either a lavalier or headset mic of your choice for single-person interviews or presentations.
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 start recording, 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 shooting 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)
