Company Profile

Sennheiser is a world-leading manufacturer of microphones, headphones and wireless transmission systems. Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is now a global brand represented in 60 countries around the world with U.S. headquarters in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Sennheiser's pioneering excellence in technology has rewarded the company with numerous awards and accolades including an Emmy, a Grammy, and the Scientific and Engineering Award of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Sennheiser family of brands includes Neumann, Klein + Hummel and Sennheiser Communications.


The MKE 400 camera-mount shotgun condenser microphone preserves moments with the most natural, lifelike sound reproduction. The rugged, all-metal microphone features switchable sensitivity for long and short distances and 300+ hours of operating time from a single AAA battery. Fits all cameras with a standard hot shoe mount and an external microphone input.

The Klein + Hummel PAS 100 indoor/outdoor portable wireless speaker is an easy-to-set-up audio solution for hotels, resorts, AV rental companies and places that lack installed systems. Features include incredible audio quality, two built-in option slots for up to two Sennheiser wireless microphone systems or a CD/MP3 player, and two external inputs for wired microphone or outboard playback accessories.

The evolution wireless G3 series from Sennheiser offers versatile wireless microphone solutions for nearly every application. Sennheiser offers several wireless G3 packages, each of which pairs the compact EK 100 G3 diversity receiver with either a bodypack or handheld transmitter. Packages are also available with a plug-on transmitter and/or a lavalier microphone.

The 2000 Series from Sennheiser is your ticket to the professional league of wireless sound transmission. With a range of components designed specifically for broadcast applications, the 2000 Series offers incredible sound and reliability in the studio and in the field. Features include internal antenna splitters, selectable RF output power on all transmitters (10/30/50/100 mW!), IR sync between transmitters and rock-solid RF performance. It’s also compatible with all generations of evolution wireless!

Articles Mentioned
Motorz Skills: Producing a Hit DIY TV Show
Kyle Oliver | Chris Duke's broadcast and web TV show Motorz combines the agility of a technology professional with the enthusiasm of a lifetime, self-taught car buff. The result is an automotive DIY show that can, in Duke's words, "keep how-to installations real for enthusiasts." But it does this without giving the impression that there's anything amateur about the decidedly DIY Motorz operation, and looking inside that operation provides a great lesson into what a multitalented and motivated independent producer can accomplish without a studio behind him.

The Art and Business of Corporate Film Production, Part II: The Art
Ron Dawson | Last month we began our two-part series about the short holiday film "For the Man Who Hated Christmas" that Ron Dawson produced for Giving101. The whole process, from booking the client through production, is an ideal case study on corporate film production (not to mention profitable production for nonprofits). Part 1 covered the business side of the deal. This month, we're covering the "fun stuff": making the film.
Field Recordings
Liz Merfeld | There's a wave of raw, demolike one-take music videos with an unmistakable live feel sweeping the web, and some savvy event filmmakers have thrown their hats into thering.

Mastering DSLR Short-Form Edits
Mark & Trisha Von Lanken | Working with DSLR footage creates new challenges in post, from ingest to format support issues to audio sync, and it takes a skilled editor and powerful, versatile editing system to create a masterpiece from even the most stellar DSLR footage.

Band on the Run: What the FCC's 700MHz Ban Means to Wireless Mic Users
Stu Sweetow | As part of the digital television transition that started last year, the FCC allocated frequencies to public safety organizations and broadband providers. That spectrum includes the 700MHz band where many UHF microphones transmit. If your wireless mics operate on any frequencies between 698MHz and 806MHz, you may be breaking the law. Here's what you need to know to keep your wireless workflow safe and sound.
In the Field: The Sennheiser ew100ENG G3 Wireless System and Rechargeable Batteries
Shawn Lam | Sennheiser's latest offering is the G3, and aside from a pair of external charging contacts to charge the optional BA 2015 accupack rechargeable battery, it looks almost identical to the G2 that it's replacing. So the question I set out to answer for myself is this: Did Sennheiser make enough improvements to the G3 to entice me to upgrade my current G2s?

16x9's 0.7X and EX 0.75X Wide Angle Converter Lenses
Marc Franklin | 16x9's 0.7X Wide Angle Converter lens will work for most handheld HDV camcorders. The EX 0.75X gives you broader compatibility (like the HVX200) and better quality for another $200. If you shoot with any of the compatible handheld pro HDV/HD camcorders, I highly recommend getting at least one of these wide-angle lenses to widen your shooting horizons.
