Sennheiser’s EW-DX Microphone Systems Now Shipping

Sennheiser 1

Today Sennheiser 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.

​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

​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 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 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. ​ Details on the Sennheiser Control Cockpitare here: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/control-cockpit-software

​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.

The EW-DX Key Features:

  • ​Advanced level of Sennheiser Control Cockpit (SCC) integration allows for remote, network-enabled management in installations of all sizes via SCC and third-party applications
  • ​Network-enabled charging options for handheld and bodypack transmitters with CHG 70N
  • ​Secure transmission of confidential content using AES-256 encryption
  • ​Worldwide usage (specific frequencies subject to local RF regulations)
  • ​Up to 12 hours of battery time
  • ​Transmitters with function buttons for convenient on-device control
  • ​Transmitters with e-ink display for easy user identification
  • ​Automatic RF setup enables easy in-room configuration
