Conventional wired microphones convert sound into an electrical audio signal that is sent to the sound system through a cable. Live music stages that are crowded with cables from microphones for vocals, guitars, drums and other instruments can become a snake pit of overlapping wires and limit the performers‘ freedom of movement on the stage.
Wireless microphone systems convert audio signals created by microphones into radio signals, which are sent by a transmitter through the air to the receiver and then through the sound system. They eliminate the need for cables, so you are no longer tethered to a sound system or tripping through messy performing environments.
With continuous advances and improvements in sound quality and reliability, wireless microphone systems are more affordable and popular than ever. Their potential goes far beyond the stage. You can find wireless microphone systems in exercise studios, schools, houses of worship, presentation halls – anywhere a performer or presenter wants true freedom of movement.
