Earthworks Microphones will debut its first ever wireless product, the WL40V wireless vocal microphone capsule at the upcoming 131st AES Convention in New York.
The WL40V has been adapted in wireless capsule form from the SR40V vocal microphone released earlier this year.
Designed to maintain the same signature sound as its wired counterpart, the WL40V delivers a detailed and realistic vocal sound that requires little to no EQ.
Its textbook hypercardioid polar pattern and extended flat frequency response translate to a natural on- and off-axis performance coupled with benchmark levels of clarity and detail.
The wireless capsule is interchangeable with any screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading, such as those from Lectrosonics, Line 6 and Shure.
The WL40V will be available through authorized Earthworks dealers Q1 2012, and like all Earthworks microphones, will come with a 15 year warranty.
The WL40V, as well as microphones from the rest of Earthworks lineup, will be at booth 645 at the AES show.
