    Wireless Sennheiser v Shure

    I do community theater with several groups that use either the ULX's or 100 G2's. (I personally have two 500 G3's.) I don't think you'd go wrong with either, but I'd suggest your dad get the 100 G3's. The ULX transmitters use a 9V battery, whereas the 100 G3 uses two AA's. This gives...

    Wireless Sennheiser Wall Worts: Linear or Switching?

    Sennheiser used to ship their EW xxx G2 & G3 receivers with a linear (transformer) wall wort. Now they are shipping them with a switching-supply version of their wall wort. Switching supplies, unless carefully designed, can radiate RFI. Anybody have experience with the Sennheiser switching...

    Sennheiser vs Shure Wireless Mics

    I have a couple of wireless mic questions for use in community-theatre musical productions. The location is not "big city" with lots of strong TV stations, but it's not rural either. First of all, are there any "real world" differences between the Sennheiser EW100 G3 and EW500 G3 systems? I...
