  1. Hi all I use a G2 for agency/directors headphones. It works well but sometimes is a bit limited on range. I know i could buy a half rack sennheiser unit that has bnc connectors for external antenna, but i was wondering if i could instal a sm or bnc plug into a bodypack transmitter to attach an external antenna. Has anybody do it? What would the wiring be like? Any help would be appreciated. Diego
  2. Hello sound hive, i m dominique greffard, a sound mixer based in montreal canada. I have recently got a zaxcom nova and a couple of zmt transmitters that i really like. a few times a year i get asked to provide production with a wireless stickmic and i can t justify buying a dedicated xlr transmitter for those rare instances. i decided to come up with an adaptor to allow a zmt transmitter to work with the sennheiser md-46, shure sm58 and the electro-voice re-50. i am now selling those with the xlr-f to lemo adaptor for 110$ Usd paypal. I wou
  3. Hi everyone! I just purchased a MKH 416 from BBlist and I have 24h to return it in case something is wrong with the mic. I've tried to do as much research I could about the fake 416's but I'm still not 100% this one is genuine. The only 2 things that don't convince me are: the finish paint is pretty fine (it's hard to feel the texture of the paint), and if I shake the mic a bit I can hear/feel like there are some parts inside that are moving slightly. Can anyone leave their opinions on this based on the photos and the info? UPDATE: I've called Se
  4. I'm a camera / video guy. Every now and then I have an interview or a corporate shoot where I have to work solo, and that includes the sound. I have been using the Rodelink wireless lav kits for a few years now and I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I've been looking at the workhorse Sennheiser G4, which would fit my use case perfectly. However, I find it a little hard to decide the configuration - I know I definitely don't want to use the ME-2 lav. I am trying to decide between these options: 1. G4 512P with the MKE-2 microphone - around 700-800€ This would get me a decent micro
  5. Hi, I just received a secondhand Sennheiser MKH8060, and did a quick comparrison between it and my old MKH416. I was expecting a big difference in self noise, but in the recordings the difference isn't that big I think. I recorded into my Sound Devices MixPre-6 at around 45 dB gain. Here's my test: https://youtu.be/cqa-U8GqBz0 What do you think, is my microphone alright? Thank you.
  6. I've been using Sennheiser SK5012 transmitters paired with EK 3041 receivers because they're cheap on ebay. But it's old tech. Do they sound better than cheap current generation systems? Or is this the best bang for the buck? I'm guessing the analog amp circuitry is good since these were high end models, but that better transmission quality exists with newer digital radios.I have them paired with DPA 4060 lapel mics.I've also messed around with lectrosonics MM400 transmitter and CR210D Receiver. Also deals to be had on these. Seems like its wireless tech is newer. Not sure which is better.

    Sennheiser G4

    Sennheiser has been announcement the G4 line. Available: April 2018 As for specifications, has not been published, yet. 50 mW and 88 MHz bandwidth the only specifications so far. More: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/wireless-microphone-broadcast-film-evolution-g4
  8. Has anyone modified a Sennheiser HMD26 headset to auto mute the microphone when the mic boom arm is lifted? A client was offered this pre-installed by Sennheiser but it can't source the required circuit board anymore. Any suggestions and/or previous experience appreciated. Thanks
  9. Hi All, on a recent sfx shoot I've been using Sennheiser 8060 along with RSM 191 (both plugged into Zaxcom Nomad) , and experienced this weird noises from the Sennheiser mic. Any idea what caused it? It has gone away after a short while... sennheiser noise sample.mp3
  10. Has anyone experienced clicking noise from Panatape when using Sennheiser 5212 transmitters? No matter the lavaliere, I continue to have problems.
  11. Hello, Does anybody have, or know of, any MS recordings that compare the MKH40 to the MKH50 with that as the only variable in the comparison? I'm trying to get a feel for how the different polar patterns will affect an MS recording, but I haven't found anything that directly shows this. I'm trying to decide between the 40/50/8040 for a mid mic, and since I might get a stereo pair of 8040s and could use one of those for MS occasionally, it seems like it's coming down to this question of the 40 vs. 50. I know the 40 is classic but some say it's boring, some say the 50 is "beefy" but perh
  12. Just thought I would throw in a lavaliere modification or those using Sennheiser and Sony transmitters with the 1/8" locking TRS connectors (G3's, UWP's, etc.). As you know, lavalieres for the G3's usually won't work for the UWP's, even though they have that same 1/8" locking connector. But... I purchased a low-budget Senal OLM-2 lav specifically for my Sony as a backup. For the heck of it I plugged it into a G3 and dang if it didn't work. So I opened it up and saw what you see in the attached photo... a tiny 10k Ohm (brown, black, orange, gold rings), 1/8 W, 5% tiny resistor spanning b
  13. Hi I just found out that the cable for the G3- 112 , cl 100 is unbalance and that the cable cl 500 is balance but sold with the 500 system. I would like to know if it will give me any problem to use cl 500 cable in my G3 112 system? Normally i would believe that balance is better than unbalance, but there must be a reason why G3-112 is sold with a unbalance cable. I will use this to connect to my HD recorder 664 with balance input. Any comment would be nice, thanks. And yes I know that the G3- 112 is not world class radiomic, but with a DPA 4060 mic. it helps a lot. Thanks
  14. After a successful year of upgrading Schoeps CMC4 microphones to 48V phantom, I'd like make the JWsound community aware of the www.416Tupgrade.com service, for conversion of T-powered MKH Sennheiser series microphones to 48V phantom power. The upgrade is available for 416, 415, 816, 815, 415 and 406 microphones. http://www.416Tupgrade.com Thank you Pete Verrando
  15. Here's another in-depth review! This time, it's Sennheiser's AVX system, put in good use by camera buddies for over a year. http://www.bamfsound.com/sennheiser-avx-review/ Unfortunately, I couldn't get permission to show some raw ENG/news footage of AVX in action, but I did find other clips out there. Enjoy!
  16. I'm picking up my first COS-11D and i'm grateful for the input i've already received in this thread regarding TA5F to XLR solutions. I work with a couple different crews who use Sennheiser G2/G3 wireless systems. I'd like my TA5F-wired lav(s) to be compatible with these systems since i'm commonly using them. Would anyone recommend the professional's version (not found on Ebay, not 25 dollars) of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/171376718565? All my Googling has turned up very little. Thanks in advance.
  17. Hey guys, Avid reader and new to the production sound scene. I've doing location sound for about a year now with good success doing corporate, 2 features and a bunch of shorts. Upgraded to my first nice indoor mic (neumann km150). So here's the deal: got my first gig that's got me pretty nervous. I've been asked to do sound for an interview with Martin Scorcese. My first thought was that I have to upgrade to a sound devices and some lectros or zaxcom lavs along with my indoor boom. I've been getting by with a tascam 680 and sennheiser g3's with a cos-11 mic. I know it's prosumer and I"m savi
  18. Hi all. I thought that AVX systen would be goot to use for camera hop, but I noticed some weird harmonics in the signal. Sent test tone from SD633 to AVX and recorded it on the computer. Did the same test with cable connection and got these results. Also compared AVX to Azden pro-dx. Audio files added. Can anyone confirm that. First pic is AVX, second ,cable connection Azden.wav AVX.wav
  19. Hi, a newbbie here, with a ew100 g3 problem: Transmitter is sending signal, reciever's screen indicates signal input but no audio coming out from minijack's output of my ew100 g3 system. I've been told it's the output's resistor, but wanted to know if anyone experienced a similar problem. Would love to read your thoughts, Gracias Pablo

  21. I know a lot of people here (and everywhere) love the 416 and use it extensively. However, is that because they have been using it for so long and haven't tried the 8060 (which I think Sennheiser hints as 416's newest replacement)? Or are there many people who have tried the 8060 and returned it in favour of sticking with the 416? I haven't had the chance to use either, and am debating which one to get for outdoor booming. I'm in Pakistan and it's noisey here so directionality and rejection of unwanted ambience is of prime importance. Also, I know there are other threads i
  22. They market it as "camera receiver", but they mention a panel for cameras without audio slots, that would enable using it in bag/cart. http://en-us.sennheiser.com/news-a-world-first-sennheisers-new-ek-6042-two-channel-camera-receiver-works-with-both-analogue-and-digital-transmitters
  23. Long time lurker first time poster (i think), hello! Also, I posted this on gearslutz too, apologies to anyone who read both forums. I recently bought a Sennheiser 418S m/s microphone off eBay, since I’m doing a bunch of field recording projects at the moment but I liked the idea of retaining some possibility for stereo ambiences in my recordings. The 418S was recommended to me by a friend who I work with a lot, and I had been pretty impressed by the recordings he had made with it. It seemed like just what I needed. Anyway, when it arrived I was dismayed to plug it in and hear a pretty seriou
  24. Hey Guys, I'm new here and I've done a few searches looking for the info I need but haven't quite found an answer to my specific question. I'm shooting for 3 weeks in the Philippines on a doco - I'm setting up an audio rig with 2 radio mics (along with a boom). Nothing too strenuous, no water action, just interviews etc We'll be in Manilla but also Davao City. Only thing is I can't find any info on the restricted frequencies inside the Philippines. So I'm a bit confused as to which of the below options would work best for in country shooting.... So my three options for radio m
  25. Some days ago, I shot a couple of long scenes in a very crowded shopping center where the background was very loud. I had 3 Zaxcom LANC transmitters and, at the last minute, I had to add an other mic and I used a backup Sennheiser G3. All had Sanken Cos11 as mic. Yesterday, I listened at the files in ProTools and noticed that the Sennheiser had a better separation between actor voice and background noise. I compared it (it was mounted on a man) with an other male actor standing beside him, but having Zaxcom Tx, with the mic in the same position and at the almost identical level of voice a
