At the 2018 NAB show in Las Vegas, Sennheiser(Central Hall, Booth 1307) has will be unveiled the new Essential range of headset and lavalier microphones that connect to bodypack transmitters with 3-pin and 3.5 mm jack connectors.

“As its name suggests, the Essential range brings the accepted core acoustics of the HSP 2 and MKE 2 to a new audience at an attractive price,” says Jannik Schentek, product manager at Sennheiser. “The microphones are uncomplicated in use and facilitate quick handling.”

The HSP Essential Omni has an omnidirectional capsule and a stainless-steel headband designed to easily adjust to accommodate a wide range of head sizes. Available in black and beige, it offers a choice of a 3.5 mm jack connector for use with XS Wireless and evolution wireless or a 3-pin connector for professional wireless series from 2000 through to Digital 9000. The 1.3 m cable is firmly attached to the headset and a pop windshield is included.

The MKE Essential Omni is also available in black and beige and comes with either a 3-pin or 3.5 mm jack connector. The omnidirectional lavalier  is supplied with a crocodile clip and a pop windshield, but can also be used with the range of MKE 2 mounting accessories. Cable length is 1.6 m to accommodate different wearing styles, from concealing the microphone along the hairline for a theatrical performance to standard broadcast use as a lapel microphone.
