    Fabulous product

    The ability to use this with your favourite microphone is a dream come true. My road crew want a stack of them to replace every XLR cable that we use.

    PRO:

    Makes my favourite mic' (previously wired...sorry not a Sennheiser) sound even better. No buzz. No drop-outs. No cables. No fiddling with frequency changes. No radio interference. The radio compression smooths out the difference between my quiet speaking voice and my loud singing voice. (My sound engineer loves that) I researched all kinds of replacements for my Sennheiser radio mic, that was smashed, and then this came on the market. This has freed me from the cables forever. A fabulous product. Not only would I recommend this product, I've already called all my musician friends and done so.

    CON:

    None yet. Time will tell if the rechargeable battery system holds up but for now they work great.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    It Works!

    A foam inlay for the Thon universal case would be good. I'd love to use more than the stated five max pairs.

    PRO:

    I'd echo all the sentiment expressed in the review by Jorjor, Palm Beach. My four pairs of XSW-D arrived, I charged them, plugged the four receivers next to each other on the mixer, plugged the transmitters into the SM58's on mic stands, and it just worked! Crystal clear, I cannot tell difference between the wireless sound and the cable sound. So relieved, because none of the reviews I read, or the YouTube video's I watched, including the Sennheiser video's, demonstrated the use of multiple units in real life. I'm sure that the battery will last five hours, but I'm giving each singer a smartphone holder on their mic stand, holding a USB powerbank to feed the XSW-D during its first outing, just in case. It's well worth reading the manual to get a good understanding of the operation of the single button and LED... which I love! I also love the fact that the tx/rx's arrive pre-paired and that Sennheiser provide neat little colored stickers to identify pairs amongst many others.

    CON:

    I had to purchase extra USBA - USB-C charging cables, Sennheiser really could have provided two. Also, every customer needs to invent their own method of safe storage and transport. I'd happily buy a ready made transport case, with inlay, to store these units. I'm currently trying to modify a Thon case made for a different purpose.

    BEST USES:

    The system is for a worship band at church, and the XSW-D's not only work great, with no tangled cable mess, it only takes minutes now to get the PA out of storage, and set up ready to go.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    Up to four transmitters can be paired with a receiver. Note, only one transmitter may be used at a time.

  • Can I use the Ci1 instrument cable with the 3.5mm input on the Mini Jack Transmitter?
    No, the Ci1 instrument cable (included in analog XS Wireless and evolution wireless instrument sets) is not compatible with XS Wireless Digital. For instrument connections via 6.3mm (1/4 inch) jack, please use the dedicated instrument transmitter.

  • Can I connect XS Wireless Digital to my computer via the USB cable?
    XS Wireless components can be charged via a computer's USB port, but audio is not passed to or from a computer via USB.

  • My audio is distorted, what should I do?
    In the unlikely event that your audio distorts, reduce the input level on your mixing board, DSLR camera or other external device. If your equipment offers choice of mic or line level, please select line. For devices offering mic level only, reducing input sensitivity will improve results.  XS Wireless Digital has been designed to provide a clean, robust output signal, but you may need to adjust your external device the default settings on to achieve the best results.
