The EW 100 G2 is a wireless microphone system made by Senheiser. It includes a clip-on microphone, body-pack transmitter and receiver. The typical application for a wireless system of this type is television broadcast or recording, where wired microphones are inconvenient or impractical. The microphone sends an electrical signal to the body-pack transmitter, which processes it for wireless transmission and sends it to the receiver. The receiver is connected to an external device, such as a mixing desk or recording console.

  1. 1

    Connect the receiver to the mixing console. Run a cable from the receiver output jack to the input jack of the mixer. The type of cable required depends on the make and model of the mixer, but typically this application calls for a 1/4-inch jack cable. Whether you are recording the microphone or broadcasting the output, the receiver must route the sound into the mixer. The mix engineer balances the levels before the sound is broadcast or recorded.

  2. 2

    Clip on the microphone. Fasten it to your clothing approximately 2 inches below your collar. Conceal the microphone underneath a neck tie or scarf, if necessary, provided the microphone is clipped on securely and isn't prone to rubbing against the material.

  3. 3

    Remove the back panel of the body-pack transmitter by pushing the release tab down and pulling the back panel toward you. Insert six AA batteries into the slots inside the back of the transmitter. The flat end of the battery goes against the spring.

  4. 4

    Attach the body-pack transmitter. Clip the transmitter onto your belt or waist band. If you find this uncomfortable, the transmitter should fit in the back pocket of your trousers. Pull the antenna fully up.

  5. 5

    Connect the microphone to the body-pack transmitter via the body-pack cable. Plug the body-pack cable into the transmitter input jack, run the cable underneath your top layer of clothing, and connect the other end to the back of the clip-on microphone.

  6. 6

    Turn on the radio frequency receiver. which scans for signals on a range of frequencies until it picks up the microphone. The backlit LED display shows "Scanning." When the receiver locates the microphone transmitter, press "Lock" on the receiver to avoid accidental changing of frequencies.

  7. 7

    Mute the transmitter. Press the "Mute" button located on the transmitter control panel. This stops your microphone output broadcasting to the transmitter. When you are ready to record or broadcast, hit the "Mute" button again.

Tips and warnings

  • Tape the body-pack cable to the inside of your shirt to keep the wire secure.
  • While your microphone is on, there's always a chance that someone can hear what you are saying. Even if you think your microphone is off, don't say anything you wouldn't want others to hear.
