Compatible with any DSLR or mirrorless camera, XSW-D defines the term “plug-n-play” by way of its 3.5mm cables and included ME 2-ii lavalier. If you’re looking to enhance your workflow with clean and consistent audio, do so without the burden of a complex setup.

Enter the world of wireless audio

As easy as it gets

Each XS Wireless Digital transmitter and receiver have only one button. Press to power up and link simultaneously, click once to mute, and hold to power down. What’s more, they each feature a single LED that indicates when your connection is secure or when it’s time to charge the battery. There are no menus to fuss with or settings to worry about. It’s almost as easy as plugging a mic directing into your camera, only now with a lot more flexibility.

As easy as it gets

Digital for worldwide operation

XS Wireless Digital uses the same 2.4 GHz frequency as WiFi allowing for license free operation worldwide. There is no need to scan for available frequencies as the system automatically does it for you. This means you can take XSW-D with you wherever you go without fear of static interference or dropouts. Just turn it on and start recording.

    Very promising

    It is indeed, a great product.

    PRO:

    The XSW-D is absolutely, ground breaking technology. It addresses the need for portability, ease of use, and professional quality.

    CON:

    The inability to at least decrease the sensitivity or AF out, might be to its demise. I personally hope that there is a firmware update that will allow one to decrease the sensitivity and or AF out. Thank you.

    It is best used by me for interviews and weddings ceremonies.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

  • How many transmitters can I pair with my receiver?
    Up to four transmitters can be paired with a receiver. Note, only one transmitter may be used at a time.

  • Can I use the Ci1 instrument cable with the 3.5mm input on the Mini Jack Transmitter?
    No, the Ci1 instrument cable (included in analog XS Wireless and evolution wireless instrument sets) is not compatible with XS Wireless Digital. For instrument connections via 6.3mm (1/4 inch) jack, please use the dedicated instrument transmitter.

  • Can I connect XS Wireless Digital to my computer via the USB cable?
    XS Wireless components can be charged via a computer's USB port, but audio is not passed to or from a computer via USB.

  • My audio is distorted, what should I do?
    In the unlikely event that your audio distorts, reduce the input level on your mixing board, DSLR camera or other external device. If your equipment offers choice of mic or line level, please select line. For devices offering mic level only, reducing input sensitivity will improve results.  XS Wireless Digital has been designed to provide a clean, robust output signal, but you may need to adjust your external device the default settings on to achieve the best results.
