Sennheiser is introducing three new microphone stands with a cable connection at its base rather than at the microphone itself.
This new system means that plug-on wireless transmitters can now be attached to the bottom of the stand or, if preferred, cables can be connected at the base eliminating the necessity to run the mic cable up the stand itself.
While the 60cm and 80cm variants are ideal for use as "wireless" floor stands at large events, the 30cm version is designed for TV and panel discussions. The stands can be combined with a choice of Sennheiser MZH goosenecks and ME microphone heads, and can be converted to wireless operation using an SKP 3000 or SKP 500 plug-on transmitter.
The floor stands are fitted with a female XLR-3 connector and locking screw at their top to accommodate the gooseneck, and a right-angled male XLR-3 connector at the bottom.
