The Sennheiser EW 500 G4-MKE2 Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System is a professional-grade wireless lavalier microphone system that can be easily mounted in a rack. It offers a range of features that enhance its reliability and control, such as variable RF power, a wide tuning range, and Ethernet networking for multi-channel setups. The Sennheiser EW 500 G4-MKE2 also has an intuitive interface with an OLED display and jog wheel, making it easy to use. This system is ideal for presenters, clergy, lecturers, and performers working in business and educational settings, houses of worship, theaters, or on musical stages, as it delivers high-quality, reliable audio. The Sennheiser EW 500 G4-MKE2 is a versatile and reliable choice for a variety of professional settings.

The EW 500 G4-MKE2 includes a true-diversity, half-rack receiver housed in a rugged, full-metal chassis. The receiver's auto-scan function searches a 50 MHz UHF tuning range with 2000 selectable frequencies available, seeking out a clean, interference-free channel for your audio transmission. The high-contrast OLED display with automatic dimming and a convenient jog wheel allow you to make quick adjustments, even in low-light situations.

For pristine sound capture, the EW 500 G4-MKE2 features a high-grade MKE 2 omnidirectional lavalier mic with a sweat-resistant, easy-to-conceal miniature design. The bodypack transmitter provides up to 8 hours of operation on two AA batteries, with a selectable 10/30/50mW RF power output for overcoming interference in difficult RF environments. The transmission range is up to 330'.

The Ethernet connection on the receiver supports Wireless Systems Manager (WSM) control software for advanced frequency coordination in multi-channel setups. Up to 32 wireless mics can operate simultaneously in the same space.

The EW 500 G4-MKE2 is backward-compatible with all previous evolution systems. You can mix and match G4/G3/G2/G1 receivers or bodypack, handheld, and plug-on transmitters. It is also compatible with EW 100 and EW 300 systems.

Proven Broadcast-Quality Sound

Popular with industry professionals, the MKE 2 omnidirectional lavalier microphone delivers a natural, broadcast-quality sound optimized for speech intelligibility. Its omnidirectional polar pattern ensures that the sound remains consistent, even when the speaker's head moves away from the mic.

 

To take full advantage of the MKE 2's dynamic range, the system employs proprietary HDX compander technology, preserving your sound without adding unwanted noise during transmission-delivering audio with remarkable accuracy and quality.

Compact Bodypack Transmitter for Hands-Free Presentations

The lavalier mic plugs into the locking 3.5mm connection on the compact SK 500 G4 bodypack transmitter. The adjustable input sensitivity on the transmitter accommodates mic levels ranging from booming voices to quiet speech, and even line-level audio.

 

The rugged, all-metal transmitter features a programmable mute function and can be locked out to prevent accidental changes during a performance. A backlit LCD displays essential information and provides fast menu access. The transmitter syncs to the receiver via infrared with a quick press on the Sync button.

The SK 500 G4 is powered via two AA batteries or a rechargeable BA 2015 Accupack battery (available separately). Side contacts allow for recharging the Accupack without removing it from the transmitter—requires the L 2015 quick-charging unit (available separately).

Easy-to-Operate Receiver with True-Diversity Reception

The robust, metal EM 300-500 G4 receiver offers a high-contrast, black-&-white OLED display. The display uses a streamlined menu system with a jog wheel and dedicated Escape button for quick menu navigation. The display also shows battery status of the associated transmitter.

 

The system features 20 fixed frequency banks with up to 32 compatible frequency presets and 6 user banks with up to 32 user-programmable frequencies.

To prevent interference, the EM 300-500 receiver's true-diversity reception compares incoming signals on two independent receiver circuits to ensure optimal RF quality.

The built-in equalizer enables you to change the frequency response of the output signal; you can reduce the bass range and boost the treble range. The receiver also offers an adjustable output level range of 48 dB to match the audio input of your mixing board or PA system.

A headphone output with volume control is conveniently located on the front panel, allowing you to monitor your audio signal.

The back panel houses a balanced XLR output as well as an unbalanced 1/4" output. A kit is included for rackmount installation. The unit comes with a universal power supply and EU, US, UK, Korea, Australia, and China adapters.

Time-Saving Control Options with WSM Software

The receiver features an Ethernet (RJ45) port for network-based remote monitoring and control using the Sennheiser Wireless System Manager (WSM) software (free download available separately). Using your Mac/Windows computer, the software allows you to quickly coordinate frequencies in multi-channel setups, display audio levels at the transmitter, battery status, and more.

Enhance the Performance of Your System

The detachable antennas with BNC sockets allow you to create a larger system using up to four EM 300-500 G4 receivers connected to a single pair of remote antennas. This setup requires the ASA 214 active antenna splitter (available separately).

Adding a pair of A 1031-U omnidirectional antennas or a pair of A 2003 UHF directional antennas increases the range of your system and offers increased protection against interference.

Add Functionality to Your System

Sennheiser offers a variety of lavalier, headset, and handheld microphone options to adapt your EW system as your needs evolve.

  • The lightweight HS 2-ew headset mic provides exceptional clarity in singing and spoken-word applications.
  • The SKM 500 G4 handheld transmitter is available with a multitude of mic capsule options for presenters and performers who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone.
  • The Ci 1 instrument cable lets you connect the bodypack transmitter to a guitar or bass.
  • The CL 2 cable lets you connect an XLR line source to your transmitter.
