This B&H Kit includes the Xvive Audio U3 plug-on wireless mic transmitter and XLR-equipped wireless receiver, a broadcast-quality handheld omnidirectional dynamic microphone, and a passive 2-channel DSLR XLR adapter.

Xvive Audio U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System

Turn your dynamic microphone into wireless with the U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System from Xvive Audio. It features a 2.4 GHz wireless band, 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, and less than 5 ms latency. The system works up to a 90' range, and includes two rechargeable batteries with a five-hour life for both receiver and transmitter units. The transmitter plugs into a dynamic microphone or into DI or XLR output gear, and the receiver plugs into a live sound mixer, portable PA system, or a recorder. This system broadcasts on six channels simultaneously, and is suitable for live vocals, presentations, video productions, and houses of worship.

Senal ENG-18RL Broadcast Omnidirectional Dynamic Microphone (Long)

The Senal ENG-18RL is a broadcast-quality omnidirectional dynamic microphone. The dynamic capsule picks up sound in a 360° pattern and does not require a battery or phantom power, making it a reliable choice for critical field applications. The microphone's exceptionally low handling noise and resistance to wind noise and vocal plosives make it perfect for professional ENG applications like live reporting, interviews, and press conferences.

At multiple areas inside the microphone, natural rubber with special shock-absorbing properties is bonded to carbon steel rings to isolate the sealed inner shell from the outer shell. This system protects the microphone capsule from impacts and inclement weather, and dissipates kinetic energy, dramatically reducing handling noise and resonance due to rustling and knocking.

The microphone also incorporates multistage wind protection to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives. A mesh grille, acoustic foam, acoustic fabric, and another layer of acoustic foam work to diffuse excess sound pressure from wind and breath. A fixed rigid carbon-steel ring with a unique bullet-shaped design disperses breath to minimize vocal plosives.

The EQ curve is tailored for broadcast use, with a gradual low-frequency roll-off to keep out unwanted rumble, a pronounced midrange to ensure speech intelligibility, and a high-frequency roll-off to eliminate hiss and sibilance distortion. Whether broadcasting on television, AM/FM radio, or over the internet, the ENG-18RL is designed to ensure that dialogue cuts through the mix, and can be broadcast live without EQ adjustment.

The ENG-18RL features a durable aluminum-alloy shaft designed for EMI rejection and reduced internal resonance, with a matte black finish for a professional appearance and minimum light reflection. The mic is also long enough to accommodate a mic flag.

Can the transmitter be plugged into a ...

Can the transmitter be plugged into a soundboard's XLR main output and can the receiver be plugged into the XLR input of the Canon XA11 Camcorder (B&amp;H # CAXA11 MFR # 2218C002)? If so, should the XA11's input be set to Line, MIC, or MIC +48?
Asked by: Kenneth
After looking at the specs on the Xvive Audio U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System (Xvive), I saw that it has a maximum input level of 2.8 V p-p in Mic Mode and 7 V p-p in Line Mode. My mixer has +4dBu outputs. That's approximately 1.23 Volts which is below the maximum input levels of the Xvive. With that said, I decided to give it a try and it worked. One drawback to consider. The Xvive has a thick form factor. After plugging it into the Canon XA11 Camcorder, I could not remove it. The release button on the XA11 is blocked by the body of the Xvive. I guess it will just have to stay there so I am glad that it works.

I have a C100 MK 2, was thinking that this would be great to use with a shotgun Mic. Plug one end into the XLR in the upper handle and the other into the XLR on the Mic. This should work well, correct?
Asked by: Noah J
You would have to plug the mic into the transmitter and the receiver into a recorder, camera or mixer. This is only made for dynamic mic's. So no phantom power.

Is the U3 approved for use in the US? On the Xvive website, it says it isnt But that seems strange because many competing wireless systems use the same 2.4 GHz range.

Can this be used with DSLR/Mirrorless cameras? I am aware that one would need to attach an XLR to 3.5mm jack to the receiver. Is the output of the receiver mic level? The minute size would make it ideal for run &amp; gun type of filming.
Asked by: Brian
Yes, It can be used on with DSLR/Mirrorlesscamera but please realized that for the Receiver of U3 is the balanced XLR output and so there would be hiss sound/high white nosie if you just simply use a cable convert the XLR output to 3.5mm Jack. it would be address this issue if you apply IRIG PRE or similar prodct. As to the output,Yes, the receiver output is Mic level.
