Sennheiser XSW 35-A

Sennheiser are not only one of the leading brands for regular dynamic mics with models like their famous e835, they've also been producing wireless systems for over 50 years.

In fact this comes with the e835 capsule, so you're getting the same high quality mic in a wireless system.

The main things that reviewers praised this mic for were the quality of the sound, the range, and the consistency of performance without drop outs.

There were no issues that were consistently reported as negatives by owners. There were a few negative reports, but those were primarily from a small group of users who compared it to more expensive Shure models.

Feature Overview

  • Mic frequency response: 80Hz to 16kHz
