The S5.5-HCX is the professional, electret condenser handheld microphone of the Trantec S5.5 system, offering 1,400 transmission frequencies.

In addition to its excellent sound quality, it is characterized by the following properties :

Its full-metal housing is extremely durable, well weighted and highly ergonomical.

The internal controls and LCD screen allow for quick and easy adjustment of the transmission frequency and microphone gain.

Inside the S5.5-HCX you find its battery compartment for a single AA battery, which allows for up to 10 hours of continuous operation, an on/off switch and an infrared sensor for synchronization between the mic and the receiver.

On the bottom of the microphone you will find a handy mute switch, by which the artist can mute the audio output of the microphone mute when needed. In contrast to the above-mentioned on/off switch inside the mic’s body, this will not switch off the mic and thus cut the wireless connection. The audio signal will only be muted while maintaining the radio link. This has the great advantage, that the assigned transmission channel remains occupied, and thus prevents other parties from dialling into your transmission channel. This is especially useful during large events where multiple independent parties, such as FOH and e.g. electronic news gathering teams (ENG) are present, that want to use the same parts of the radio spectrum.

Furthermore the S5.5-HCX has a pickup pattern, which ensures that ambient noise will be most effectively suppressed compared to frontal sources as your mouth. Hence the microphone signal remains clear and pristine and can blend into the FOH mix much better.

Its integrated antenna and the matt black finish of its body and grill complete the premium look of this microphone.
