The ultracompact Sennheiser AVX-Combo SET provides professional videographers, video journalists, or vloggers with a dependable wireless microphone system that's so easy to use, it's like having a dedicated sound engineer on set handling audio tasks.

Made with simplicity in mind, but without compromising audio quality, this self-configuring digital system handles time-consuming frequency setup and mic-level adjustments for you, so you're ready to shoot within seconds. Now, you can focus on the other critical elements vying for your attention during a shoot, and confidently record crisp, clear audio on your camcorder, DSLR, or mirrorless camera.

This combo set offers a flexible solution by including a bodypack transmitter, an ME 2-II omnidirectional lavalier mic, and a handheld transmitter equipped with an MMD 835 cardioid capsule. The lav provides a discreet hands-free mic option, while the handheld mic is ideal in situations where you don't have time to position a lav mic or you need to quickly pass the mic between several people. The system is ideal for wedding and corporate videos, documentaries, and red-carpet- or man-on-the-street-style interviews in noisy environments.

It should be noted that while this system includes two microphones, only one can be used at a time.

It Goes Where You Go
  • The lightweight AVX system is easy to carry with you when every ounce counts.
  • The roadworthy bodypack transmitter features a rugged metal chassis with a form factor even smaller than the EW G4. 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 display shows battery life and signal strength.
  • The robust handheld transmitter also features a rugged metal chassis and a display that shows battery life and signal strength.
  • The discreet receiver plugs directly into the XLR input of your camcorder and rotates 320° to get out of the way of lights or other accessories you may have mounted on your camera. An AF button on the receiver allows you to adjust the output level to your camera, if necessary. In addition, the receiver comes with a shoe mount and 3.5mm output cable, making it a great fit for DSLR and mirrorless shooters.
Setup Made Simple
Automatically Finds a Clean Channel
  • The digital AVX automatically finds the cleanest frequency in the 1.9 GHz band as soon as you power up the receiver.
Fast Pairing
  • A long press of the Pair button on both receiver and transmitter links the two devices. Once the indicator LED turns green, you’re good to go.
(Note that the AVX is a peer-to-peer system, meaning the transmitter can only be paired with one receiver).
Clear and Natural Speech
  • The ever-popular ME 2-II omnidirectional lavalier microphone 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.
  • The handheld transmitter features an interchangeable MMD 835 dynamic cardioid capsule with a tight pickup pattern well suited for working in noisy environments.
  • The AVX's automatic mic-level control takes full advantage of the system's wide dynamic range to deliver consistent speech without clipping and distortion, even when your talent goes from a whisper to a shout.
  • The system delivers 24-bit/48 kHz audio with an extended 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, for pristine, nuanced recordings.
Protected Wireless Transmission
  • The AVX operates in the license-free 1.9 GHz band—away from TV and Wi-Fi interference—to create a wireless peer-to-peer connection, for clean audio without dropouts at a range up to 98’.
  • The system automatically finds the cleanest frequency, free from RF interference.
  • If interference is detected, the AVX automatically increases the power on the transmitter—up to 250mW—to overcome the problem.
  • If the increase in power isn’t sufficient, the system substitutes a clear frequency well before the audio signal itself is affected, for clean, worry-free sound.
Smart Power Management
  • The AVX transmitters and receivers feature removable, lithium-ion batteries that are recharged via the USB port.
  • The transmitters give you up to 15 hours of battery life, while the receiver is limited to 4 hours.
  • The receiver turns itself on and off when it senses phantom power from your camcorder, extending battery life in the field.
  • All three components can also be powered through their USB ports allowing them to run for numerous hours on a USB power pack or indefinitely if you have access to AC.
  • The included BA 30 battery for the bodypack transmitter, BA 10 for the handheld transmitter, and BA 20 for the receiver are also available separately, so you can have fully charged spare batteries ready in the field.
Other Features
  • Up to eight AVX systems can operate simultaneously in the same area
  • AES 256-bit encryption for secure communication
  • Made in Germany

This is the best thing since apple pie! I use a lot of different cameras mounted in a lot of different ways and the Sennheiser wireless mic combo gives me not only the right amount of flexibility, but is so compact and easy to work with and around that I don't even notice it's there. No problems with frequency location, bleed in or conflict issues (I use two of them at a time, side-by-side) on most shoots. I have the lav and mic setups and can go to my field audio recorders, directly into the camera or into the field recorder and then into the camera or mixing board if I need to, the system works perfectly for me. I initially bought one set and was so impressed I turned around and bout the second.

Perfect

This combo set is a perfect fit for location shooting and run & gun audio recording. Matches up perfectly with my Sound Devices and Zoom recorders and I don't need to lug around the larger receiver boxes that my other wireless mics come with. It has all the features I need, the sync and setup takes seconds and it takes very little space in my go-bag.

Good

I love my Sennheiser AVX lavalier mics - I already had two - and then bought this kit. It's a beautifully rugged and compact carry case for my entire system. It makes it easier now to keep everything together and be ready to go.

Excellent product

Can I use it on Phoenix Octopus device for an additional Microphone?
Asked by: Facinet
Unfortunately not. The Phoenix Audio MT454-PA Octopus USB Base Unit is no longer available. Also the Phoenix Octopus is for Audio Conferencing and full Duplex Communication. The Sennheiser AVX you are referring to is two separate wireless mic's. With XLR receiver's that plug right into the camera. It was designed primarily for "run and gun" type of work.

I often use my EW100 kit to transmit an audio feed from a sound console. Does the AVX platform provide for such an application?
Asked by: William
Yes, you can. Just like the EW, you would need to use the CL-2 cable to connect an output from the mixer to the transmitter.

How would you plug in the transmitter into a PA system Mixer? I'm thinking all I'd need is a 3.5mm male-to-3 pin XLR (male or female) short cable...with the 3.5 end plugged into the transmitter, and the the XLR end plugged into an XLR "out" on the board???
Asked by: ray
The AVX transmitter only excepts a mic level signal, so you would have to add a PSC ALMP Line to Mic Level Pad In-Line Barrel Adapter, B&H # PSALMP, along with a cable which you correctly mentioned. The Remote Audio 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm TRS Locking Adapter Cable for Sennheiser Transmitter (2'), B&H # RECASEK100L would be a good choice .

How well suited is this for live events, such as a ballroom with a presentational speaker? Will lots of people in the room interfere with the signal if the tech table is in the back? Will the automatic gain control affect the person trying to bring the voice up on the board?
Asked by: Jared
The AVX system is very good, but it has a short operating range of up to 98 feet (line of sight) and you may experience problems with signal dropout if the receiver is too far from the transmitter or if anything blocks the signal path between the transmitter and receiver. If you want to have the same flexibility as the AVX combo system to be able to switch between lavalier and handheld mics, you may like the ew 100 G4 combo system which includes the ew 112P wireless lavalier system combined with an SK 100 plug-on transmitter that will attach to any dynamic mic with an XLR output connector, allowing you to select your own handheld mic. If you prefer the Sennheiser wireless handheld mic, you can purchase an SKM 100 G4 Handheld Wireless Microphone Transmitter with No Mic Capsule (B&H # SESKM100G4A1) with a Sennheiser MMD 835 Cardioid Dynamic Capsule (B&H # SEMMD835) and combine it with an ew 112P G4 lavalier system (B&H # SEEW112PG4A1). Please contact us if you would like further assistance.

If I want 4 lavs across two cameras, will buying these work or will I get some feedback?
Asked by: Maria
The Sennheiser AVX series wireless microphone systems are single-channel so only one transmitter can be used with each receiver. The Sennheiser AVX 2-Person Digital Camera-Mount Wireless Combo Microphone System with Case Kit will allow you to mic two people and both receivers can be connected to the same camera. In order to mic four people at the same time using the AVX systems, you will need to have four individual AVX systems (or two of the AVX 2-Person Kits). So you can use two of the AVX 2-Person Kits with your two cameras. Up to eight of the AVX systems can be used simultaneously within a 98-foot range. Interference and feedback would not be a problem.
