Yup, just disable pilot tone in the menu. Sounds pretty good. 

 

If the UM400 is in IFB mode it will work well. 

 

The latest Lectro transmitters have a specific emulation for G3

Cool, thanks for the info!

So that would mean that a Sennheiser G3 IEM could also get signal from an IFBT4 I would think.  How about from a UM400?

Any Lectro transmitter capable of transmitting "IFB" should work with the G3 series.

UM400 rocks for IFB TX--a good use for a TX that isn't worth a whole lot anymore and that Lectro won't re-freq, but is still very solid.

Trick is to snag a Block 25 one (they can be had cheap) because there's going to be a little bit of a frequency hole between the uplink/downlink of the cell transmitters in the 600mhz range here stateside.

Haven't used it, sorry. The G3 works well enough for me and are pretty ubiquitous. You can pick them up used easily. They also make a nice IEM version with a headphone amp for using like an IFB.

Love the combination of regular and IEM G3 units, the IEM units are especially flexible for both client headsets and camera hops.  Plus the used market is full of them and it's not such a pricey situation if the camera op or clients abuse them.

I ended up getting the Sony's and haven't used them yet. I was preparing some cables for input and output and wanted to verify what I found with the two cables they sent me. 

The tip of the stereo connector is 2

the center part of the connector is 3

the upper sleeve is ground

 

The cable they sent me had the red cable on pin3 and the black on pin 2, that was kind of confusing.
