The SL Bodypack KITs DW are the perfect complement to the new SL Multi-Channel Receiver DW.
This KIT contains the compact and robust SL Bodypack DW bodypack transmitter, which is specially designed to transmit the spoken word and is compatible with all Sennheiser neckband and lavalier microphones (e.g. SL Headmic 1 or MKE 1). Thanks to the bi-directional communication between transmitter and receiver, no adjustments need to be made at the transmitter and the automatic frequency and interference management ensures easy setup and maximum transmission reliability. The transmitter's LC display shows the name of the radio link, the charge level of the battery pack(s) and the reception quality. With the easily accessible mute switch, the transmitter can be muted if necessary. The SL Bodypack DW is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack with external charging contacts for easy charging in the chargers and a USB socket for charging via USB.

Also included in the kit is the MKE 40 ew, Clip-on microphone with cardioid pattern.
