Sennheiser Expands Its Digital Wireless Microphone Family with the Availability of EW-DX

First components of the next evolution of wireless microphones for corporate and education environments ship this week

Old Lyme, November 17, 2022— Sennheiser, the first choice for advanced audio technology that makes collaboration and learning easier, today announced the availability of the next system from the Evolution Wireless Digital family of radio microphones. Named EW-DX, the new microphone systems simplify professional workflows by utilizing refined technologies to deliver a digital UHF system that can be scaled with ease.

"As the technological successor to our evolution wireless G4, EW-DX is designed for the most demanding business and professional applications," says Michael Altemark, product manager at Sennheiser. "Our latest digital wireless system solution is scalable, reliable and easy to install. EW-DX has an advance feature set that allows it to easily scale from the smallest meeting space or classroom to the largest business and educational installations."

Available This Week

This week, the first flight of products started shipping from Sennheiser's main warehouses in the United States, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. The following components are available as part of these shipments:

EW-DX EM 2, two-channel digital half-rack (9,5") receiver

EW-DX SK bodypack transmitter with 3.5mm connector and with 3-pin connector

EW-DX SKM handheld transmitter

EW-DX SKM-S handheld transmitter with programmable mute switch

EW-D power distribution cable

Complete Control and Active Monitoring

To coincide with the availability of EW-DX, Sennheiser also released an updated version of the Sennheiser Control Cockpit software this week. With Version 6.0.0, Sennheiser Control Cockpit is now fully compatible with EW-DX, enabling monitoring, control and firmware updates for EW-DX devices. For conformity, consistency and compatibility reasons, it is strongly recommended that the system be updated to the new release of Sennheiser Control Cockpit upon receiving the EW-DX. This will ensure stable firmware upon first use.

The easy-to-use Sennheiser Control Cockpit continuously provides a global overview of all network-enabled devices. It shows all status information at a glance and makes setting adjustments for one or multiple devices at the same time very easy. For more information about Sennheiser Control Cockpit, additional details about the new features and to download the new version, visit https://en-us.sennheiser.com/control-cockpit-software. Please refer to this How-To Guide to follow the steps for downloading Sennheiser Control Cockpit and updating EW-DX firmware.

Transmitters and Power Supply

The handheld and bodypack transmitters will be the first on the market to feature e-ink displays. Even when a transmitter is switched off, users will still be able to read essential device data. Both transmitter types will be fitted with in-device charging contacts. Using the dedicated BA 70 rechargeable battery pack, which can be charged using the L 70 USB charger (both BA 70 and L 70 USB are sold separately), the transmitters will have an operating time of about 12 hours.

In early 2023, Sennheiser will add to the Evolution Digital Wireless family charging options with the availability of the network-enabled charger, the CHG 70N, which features two individual charging bays for the EW-DX, one of which can charge EW-DX SKM, EW-DX SK or BA 70.
