I need to replace my wireless microphone system. For 20+ years I've used the Sennheiser L2 system with a Countryman microphone connected to the transmitter. It's worked really well. Now I need to find a replacement. What do you recommend? I don't want to go Bluetooth. I would like to go wireless so I have good range. Sometimes I remote control my computer in my other room from my bedroom so I want it to be able to reach the other room without problems. The Sennheiser did just fine. Do you have anything to recommend?

Thanks...

The Sennheiser Countryman is 1 of the most accurate microphones we ever tested. We never carried the Countryman because the Samson Airline 77 was just as accurate but more popular. The main difference being that the Airline 77 is beltpackless and doesn't require a wire from the headset to the belt pack, like all other UHF/VHF competing products. We don't call that completely wireless. Companies like Sennheiser and Shure couldn't do anything about it because of Samson's patent. We originally used Nady because it allowed us to use any microphone but we still had to deal with the belt pack wire which caught a doorknob more than once. Most wireless UHF systems require preparatory microphones that cannot be used anywhere else. Wireless VHS microphones were designed for the music business but worked great in speech recognition because competing Bluetooth systems were simply not up to the job. We don't like UHS systems because they are expensive, not completely wireless and require an AC outlet for the base station. We still sell the Airline 77 but are dumping our stock on Amazon. Nuance expanded the Bluetooth frequency range in Ver. 11 or 12 but Bluetooth microphones were still lacking a bit behind. This is no longer the case. For example, the Sennheiser MB Pro1 UC is completely wireless (no miserable AC base or wire running down to a belt pack) and less than half the price. Even the built-in rechargeable battery lasts a little longer and because the MB Pro1 is a Bluetooth microphone, it also works on your cell phone. From a speech recognition point of view, UHS systems are still great but don't have a future; other than music and aerobics.

I realize this is an older thread, but I am curious what you went with to dictate from another room?

 

I am also curious what the range is for the Sennheiser MB Pro 1 UC/ML

Most wireless headsets, like the Sennheiser MB Pro1 UC/ML Bluetooth headset, have a 300 ft in-site range which is significantly reduced by obstacles such as walls
