Polsen ULW-16-HL overview

  • 1Description

The ULW-16-HL from Polsen is a 16-channel UHF camera-mountable wireless system with a handheld microphone transmitter for capturing audio. It can be used in various environments for applications such as broadcast TV, live stage, ENG (electronic news gathering), public speaking, and more. It features an impressive 102 dB signal-to-noise ratio and can deliver pristine audio over a 100' distance with a simple to use interface.

The ULW-16-HL receiver has other features such as LED indicators and LCD displays to visually monitor channels and RF signals. It is built with a headphone jack that has a separate volume control, which allows you to monitor the audio signal. This receiver is powered by two AA alkaline or rechargeable batteries and can be easily accessed from the front panel of the unit. It will run approximately 8 hours on a fully charged battery.

The all-metal Polsen transmitter is built rugged and is designed to endure the rigors of the road. It features a dynamic handheld capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. The frequency response is 60 Hz to 18 kHz. The channel selector button makes it easy to switch between the unit's 16 selectable UHF channels. The dual-purpose integrated foam windscreen under the mic grille minimizes vocal pops and wind noise, but also protects the mic capsule from moisture.

The ULW-16-HL camera-mountable system comes with all accessories needed to get you operating, such as a 1/8" to XLRM line output cable, 1/8 to 1/8" cable for camera-level inputs, a shoe mount, four AA batteries, and a protective carrying case.

Frequency-Agile System
The 16-channel ULW-16 wireless system allows operators to quickly and effortlessly locate a clear channel
Headphone Monitoring With Level Control
The audio can be monitored at a comfortable level from the receiver's headphone output in real time without latency, which often occurs when monitoring via a camera's headphone output
Handheld Transmitter
With its impressive 102 dB signal-to-noise ratio, and wide frequency response, the handheld transmitter delivers clear and accurate sound
Durable Transmitter
The heavy-duty metal construction will withstand the rigors of transport and field recording
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The dynamic cardioid microphone capsule minimizes off-axis sound making it ideal for video applications where background noise can be problematic, such as outdoors, or at live events
Line-Level Output
The receiver features a line-level output for the best possible signal-to-noise ratio. Using the included 1/8" (3.5 mm) male to XLR male cable, the ULW-16 receiver can be connected to a professional video camera, recorder, or other line-level device

    Polsen ULW-16-HL reviews

    ULW-16-HL 16-Channel Camera-Mount UHF Wireless System with Handheld Transmitter (584.400 to 602.450 MHz) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I do historical tours of the City of Annapolis Maryland aboard a 22-passenger vessel. The boat is equipped with a stereo system that plays a narrated tour on a CD. I find it necessary to pause the narration at times to elaborate on what the guests are seeing. When doing this I have to turn around and face the passengers. If traffic is heavy or otherwise unsafe elaboration is foregone. With this mic and preamp plugged into the aux-in port on the stereo I can with the flip of a switch speak to the whole boat without distracting from my vessel's safe operation. I relied on the technical assistance from the staff at B&H, (Salesman 39W) and he was right on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and Great Product Sounds great. Mic is built like a tank. I was considering the Sennheiser ew 135-p but this is even less than half the price. I have used the Sennheiser SKP100 which you can attach to any hand mic but it really looks funny on video when you see someone holding a mic with a big box at the bottom of the mic. This looks professional and the sound is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Quality build I knew when I bought this that it was far less expensive than other brand name wireless mics, but I didn't expect what I got. This is a very rugged system,cery well made and of incredible quality. I am very satisfied. This has got to be one of the best wireless handheld mics on the market.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned-Sound quality was not great This mic had a very tinny sound when close to my mouth in the range of 2, and when I had it 6 away, it sounded muffled. I am going to return it. It is basically unusable if you want clean sound.
    Date published: 2017-04-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good sounds very good, easy to setup, using it to do videos with Android phones, need to buy a 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo cable, instead of the included one. Works with iOS also with included cable.
    Date published: 2016-08-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good... Pretty good, great sound for speech and vocal. Very well built. But badly needs an illuminated indicator or LED when receiver is on so you don't put it away draining the battery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good sound quality is very good, no interference until now.
