Sennheiser Launches New Frequency Variants for Evolution Wireless 300 and 500 Microphones

Sennheiser has launched new frequency variants of its Evolution wireless EW 300 G3 and EW 500 G3 wireless microphones.

Sennheiser said the new models have been designed to anticipate forthcoming changes in spectrum allocation in the United States and Canada, with the wireless microphone and monitoring systems now available in an A1 variant that covers the 470 to 516 MHz range.

As demand for mobile broadband services in North America increases, the FCC and the Department of Industry of Canada have agreed on a future reallocation of spectrum in the UHF band to accommodate these evolving needs.

The 600 MHz range, which is currently used for TV broadcast and wireless microphones, will be repurposed based on the results of the spectrum auction.

The new variants of the EW 300 G3 for presentations and the EW 500 G3 for music and stage applications anticipate these future spectrum reallocations.
