Sennheiser XSW-D XLR BASE SET Overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser XSW-D XLR BASE SET is an easy entry point into the world of wireless microphone audio for singers, vocalists, and presenters 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 performance with confidence.

The XSW-D XLR BASE SET comes with a plug-on transmitter ready to be used with a handheld dynamic microphone of your choice. The XLR-equipped, plug-in receiver connects to a wide variety of professional audio gear, including mixing boards and portable PA systems, allowing you to capture crisp-sounding vocals on stage, or in rehearsals, houses of worship, and event spaces.

Unboxing the System
  • The exceptionally lightweight and compact plug-on transmitter lets you connect any dynamic microphone 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.
  • 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.
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 XLR BASE 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 Sennheiser-compatible lavalier or headset mic of your choice for hands-free 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 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 performance 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)

    Sennheiser XSW-D XLR BASE SET Reviews

    XSW-D XLR BASE SET Digital Wireless Plug-On Microphone System with No Mic (2.4 GHz) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WIFI can be an issue If the venue you are working in has WIFI you may find issues with this. We ran the wireless at Dunes West Country Club for a wedding. It was line of sight only about 25 apart and was crackling and making odd noises quite often. I had to run a wire to stop the issue. I used the set the next week at another wedding, this time no WIFI at the site. There were no issues and all worked well. 2.4GHz WIFI is the issue, and Sennheiser mentions this in the details. Just be aware that WIFI is running in most venues and may cause issues. The idea is awesome, and will work well in many circumstances but not where WIFI is present.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as described, simple I purchased the XLR Male and XLR female kit. I use it often. It is a super simole system that works with any dynamic microphone. I’ve used it successfully with industry standard SM58 and Heil PR30 microphones. The typical way that I use it is a simple plug into camera interview mic at minimal distances. There is a little white noise in the signal but it is so low that it doesn’t affect the projects or use that I am using it for. It’s on par with the noise floor of other wireless mic options. The best thing about this is how compact the whole wireless system is. One standard mic bag with a sm58 and this unit tucked inside with it and I’m ready to roll at a moments notice. It suits my needs perfectly. I have not done irrelevant tests (in my case) such as max range etc because I’m not using the product that way. I have used it at approx 30 ft away plugged into my consoles talk back jack and not suffered any additional noise or dropouts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolution Products I think the idea of having these plug and play products is a great move. Together with competitor Xvive U3. I owned 2 Xvive U3 and 1 Sennheiser XLR Base Set. Sennheiser has way longer functioning distance according to the spec. I would argue they can improve the design a little bit. The transmitter is too long and it looks weird on some microphones. And also only one USB B to C charge cable is also kind of weird. Xvive has a USB B to 2 USB A charge cable. I even use these items for in-house wireless audio transmitting, I really hate cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality!!! I have been using these for few weeks and they work as they said. No break-ups or interference whatsoever. Im using 4 systems at the same time without any issues. The sound quality is great at 180 ft away (havent tried in actual event conditions more than that). Did a quick test at 250 ft away on a field and they worked fine; the only issue was that the transmitter has to point directly to the receptor or it would have some interference at this distance, but considering the price I think is a great solution for wireless sound system.

    Can this be used to replace xlr cable from mixer to speakers? Would the quality of the signal be similar to cable?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    While the quality is Sennheiser quality and should be as good, bear in mind this system only allows for the transmitter to broadcast the signal to one receiver. Which means if you have more than one speaker, you&rsquo;ll need a separate wireless set for each speaker.

    Are the XLR variants phantom powered? Do I still need to recharge the receiver?
    Asked by: Luke
    Hi Luke - the XLR receiver cannot be powered or charged via Phantom Power, however, you can connect AC power or use a powerbank to provide power via the USB-C connector.
