Lectrosonics has introduced the smallest wireless microphone in the world, the XSDT or "eXtra-Super-Damn-Tiny." The new wireless microphone is completely self-contained, including a nearly microscopic condenser microphone element, AA battery and a 250mW RF transmitter using the company's proprietary Digital Hybrid Wireless technology.
The microphone element, with a 1x1mm capsule area, provides an astounding frequency response of 5Hz to 120kHz and transient response far better than any other microphone on the market. Dynamic range is 120dB, with self-noise of 48dB (A-weighted) and a maximum SPL of 168dB.
Two versions of the transmitter are available: the XSDT-ALK which uses an alkaline AA battery, providing 38 minutes of operational time; and the XSDT-LITH using a lithium battery providing 1 hour and 15 minute operational time. Due to the permanently installed battery on each unit, the XSDT must be discarded once the battery dies. MSRP for the XSDT-ALK: $499.99, for the XSDT-LITH: $699.99.
