BEHRINGER tells us that their new ULTRALINK ULM100USB Wireless Microphone is in stores now, providing the freedom to leave expensive wireless receivers behind; The ULM's tiny receiver dongle can be connected directly to any BEHRINGER UFX, QX and Q-Series 'wireless-ready' mixers, plus similarly equipped EUROLIVE active loudspeakers.
BEHRINGER Product Specialist John DiNicola, told us, "This is the microphone that musicians, singers, presenters, as well churches and schools have been waiting for. Not only is the mic lightweight and easy-to-use, but the sound quality is superb -- even at distances up to 120 meters. Add to this super-long battery life, and the ULM100USB becomes the ideal mic for a broad range of professional applications."
Behringer describe the mic thus...
The ULM100USB is a wireless, hand-held digital microphone with a 2.4 GHz receiver dongle that conveniently connects to any ULTRALINK compatible BEHRINGER mixer and active loudspeaker. Additionally it adds a digital audio recording input, when connected to an USB port on PC/Mac computers, and allows direct voice recordings for video, podcasts and much more. The receiver draws its power directly from the USB port -- and when disconnected, automatically powers down the microphone to preserve transmitter battery life.
Top-quality sound travels through the dynamic hand-held mic's built-in transmitter, which works anywhere in the world in the license-free 2.4 GHz range. Digital encryption ensures the signal gets through in all its pristine, high-definition quality, without the random artifacts that often plague other wireless systems. Users can enjoy 8 hours of performance time from a pair of inexpensive AA alkaline batteries, which are available virtually everywhere. Easy-to-operate volume and mute functions are right on the mic body.
