Sennheiser SL Headmic 1: new headworn microphone features impressive sound quality and design
At InfoComm 2015, audio specialist Sennheiser is unveiling its new SL Headmic 1 presenter’s microphone – at just 7 grams an absolute lightweight that offers powerful sound and is sturdy enough even for the toughest corporate applications. The high-quality condenser microphone for talks and presentations uses the proven capsule of the omnidirectional MKE 1 broadcasting microphone, while its sleek, elegant design ensures that it is completely unobtrusive when worn. The SL Headmic 1 is easy to use and is connected to a bodypack transmitter via the 3.5 mm jack cable included.
The new headworn microphone is a further highlight in Sennheiser’s portfolio for the presentation sector. “The SL Headmic 1 leaves nothing to be desired in terms of audio quality. It ensures excellent voice clarity and outstanding speech intelligibility right through to the very last row of seats,” explained Kai Tossing, Portfolio Manager Business Communication. “At the same time, the microphone is almost invisible to the audience – and its feather-like weight of just seven grams makes it extremely comfortable for the presenter to wear.”
Alongside its high level of speech intelligibility, the SL Headmic 1 also features clear and pleasant trebles. The microphone can be optimally adapted to the shape of the head, and the microphone boom can be worn either on the left or right. Its modular design means that all components of the SL Headmic 1 can be easily and conveniently replaced.
A professional on any stage
The professional-standard SL Headmic 1 ensures that speech and even music vocals are transmitted naturally and with their full frequency and dynamic range. This makes it the perfect partner for the corporate and hospitality sectors, as well as for live shows and broadcasting. The headworn microphone comes with a 3.5 mm jack plug cable that connects it to a bodypack transmitter, for example from Sennheiser’s evolution series. For bodypacks with a 3-pin audio socket, such as the SK 5212-II, an adapter is available as an accessory.
The SL Headmic 1 is now available in black or beige. The set includes a windshield, a frequency response cap to raise the trebles when the windshield is being used and a soft case that can also accommodate a bodypack transmitter.
