Sennheiser India launched the XS Wireless IEM for musicians seeking to professionalize their shows by switching from floor wedges to wireless IEMs. Crafted for realized musicians that they need better gear to improve the overall quality of their performance; the XSW IEM is an important element to take the audio quality to the next level with an in-ear monitoring system.
XS Wireless IEM (or XSW IEM for short) is a complete starter set for personal monitoring and has been designed to set a new standard for simple, flexible, and reliable wireless in-ear monitoring. The system enables users to quickly establish an easy-to-manage wireless connection in the professional UHF range.
XSW IEM gives musicians a consistent, reliable sound that is independent of the location and their position on stage. The detail and transparency they hear helps them finetune and improve their performance. Any risk of feedback is greatly reduced.
Regardless of tech experience, XS Wireless IEM systems are easy and fast to set up. They will put an end to stage clutter – and give musicians back more space in their rehearsal room.
“Being able to hear yourself with clarity is a pre-requisite for a great performance; hence, no matter what the musical genre is, whether you are rehearsing or performing live, XSW IEM is built to level up your sound and give total freedom of movement to the musicians,” Vipin Pungalia, Director, Professional Segment, Sennheiser Electronics India Pvt. Ltd said, on the announcement. “The XSW IEM is crafted to offer consistency, reliability, and quality audio by letting one focus on playing and singing at their best”.
Feature-packed starter set
XSW IEM uses the UHF band to provide a professional-level wireless connection. Aligned and pre-calculated frequency presets get musicians started with ease and in a snap. If desired, transmission frequencies can also be selected manually.
Backlit displays on both the receiver bodypack and the rack-mount transmitter help to clearly see settings even in poor lighting conditions. In addition, the system offers a limiter to protect user’s hearing and a high-frequency boost to increase detail and intelligibility.
For their monitor sound, users can opt for a mono mix (one mix, and the pan control adjusts the volume for the left and right ear) or a stereo mix. The latter provides two options: With Focus mode switched off, the pan control will change the left/right volume; with Focus mode switched on, it will determine which of the two input signals will be heard louder, creating a personal mono mix tailored to the musician’s needs.
An infrared sensor helps to easily sync multiple bodypack receivers to one transmitter.
What’s in the box?
XSW IEM includes a stereo bodypack receiver complete with in-ears and batteries and a stereo transmitter with antenna, rack-mount kit and a power supply with various country adapters.
When starting out, using one transmitter and any number of bodypack receivers is a very cost-effective way to monitor a band’s sound. At a later point in their career, they may want to create more individual mixes, and can do so by simply adding an additional IEM transmitter.
XSW IEM retails at ₹ 56900/- across Sennheiser authorized channel partner.
XSW IEM is available in five UHF frequency ranges which are aligned with the XSW family of wireless microphones and instrument transmitters.
