The ME 2-II is an omnidirectional clip-on microphone that is optimized for speech and vocal applications. The most noteworthy feature of the updated ME 2-II is its full compatibility with digital RF transmission systems. The updated model also features an improved clip, lighter-weight plastic housing with integrated windscreen, and a smoother frequency response in the critical speech region.
The original ME 2-US clip-on microphone, as featured in Sennheiser’s evolution Wireless G3 series, will continue to be available in ew G3 sets and as a standalone item through year end.
Digital RF Compatibility Initiative As digital wireless gains momentum with its end users, Sennheiser’s goal is to ensure that its lavalier portfolio is 100% Digital RF compliant. Therefore, its lavaliers will work with any one of its wireless systems, analog or digital, regardless of what set it was purchased with.
While the MKE 1 family is fully digital compatible, the MKE 2 family underwent minor production modi cations last year to improve digital compatibility. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the ME 2-US cannot be modi ed, Sennheiser has decided to phase it out of the market at the end of the year and standardize its wireless offerings around the newer ME 2-II.
