The Evolution 300 G4 series radio systems follow the popular EW300 G3 wireless system range. Offering adjustable output power up to 50mW RF, transmitters can still operate for up to 8hrs. Like the Evolution 100 G4 system, the 300 G4 series is compatible with older G1, G2, and G3 series radiomic systems. The range is available as complete systems or in component form, with either handheld transmitters, plug-in transmitters or belt-pack transmitters for use with instruments or lapel microphones and static AC-powered receiver.
These systems are offered set for channel 38, 606-648MHz, which is the range for licensed radio microphones and in-ear monitors in the UK or set for channel 61/70, 790-865MHz, which includes the licence-exempt band for use in the UK
This diversity receiver is shared between both 300 and 500 series G4 systems and is present in most Sennheiser Evolution 300 G4 and 500 G4 series wireless systems. It is powered with the included NT2-3 UK (74-4435) power supply and can be secured into a rack case by using the included GA 3 (74-4434) rack mounting adapter. The front facing panel of the all-metal receiver housing has an OLED display, giving access to menu options and displaying information including current frequency, channel number, RF-level metering, AF level, lock status, pilot tone evaluation, muting and battery status of the associated transmitter.
Controls on the front panel include a 'Sync' button for infrared connection between receiver and transmitter; rotary jog wheel with push set, 'ESC' button, and power button. A stereo, 6.35mm jack, headphone output along with a rotary headphone output level control is positioned to the left. The rear panel houses all other connectivity, including the 12V/300mA DC power inlet and cable grip, +18dBu balanced audio output via a 3-pin XLR, +12dBu unbalanced audio output via a 6.35mm jack, and single data port for use in connection to a compatible computer running Sennheiser Wireless Systems Manager software. Two BNC antenna connections allow for attachment of the two included rod antennae or connection to compatible remote antenna hardware. Dimensions: 190 x 212 x 43 (WxDxH) mm. Weight: 980g.
Included accessories: 2x rod antennas, NT2-3 power supply, RJ10 cable, GA 3 rack mounting set, guides.

SKM 300 G4 Transmitter - Handheld
This is a handheld transmitter with a metal body, designed for vocals whether sung or spoken. Powered by two 1.5V AA batteries or BA 2015 accupack that can be inserted into the body of the microphone via a hidden threaded compartment, the microphone has an operating time of around 8 hours under normal operation. All models have set-up and menu cursor buttons, multi-function switch and fixed antenna at the base of the microphone shaft. A backlit screen gives the user feedback on current settings. A mute switch located near the capsule at the top of the microphone allows the operator to switch user-assignable options including AF on/off, RF on/off, 'push-to-mute', and 'push-to-talk', as well as disable the button functionality.
The transmitters are available individually without microphone capsules for use with compatible Sennheiser MMD, MME, and MMK microphone capsules, see below. When supplied as part of a complete system, they have a 865 super-cardioid, condenser capsule. Each transmitter is offered in two configurations of the operating frequency. One is channel 61/70 ready at 790-865MHz, the other is channel 38 ready at 606-648Mhz. Dimensions: 265 x 50 (LxD) mm. Weight: 450g, including batteries.

All the following may be used with the EW G3 and G4 handheld radiomic transmitters; SKM 100, SKM 300 and SKM 500.
MMD 835-1 BK - Dynamic, cardioid
'Balanced frequency response maintains signal quality when moving on and off-axis during performance'. 'High sound pressure handling capability'.
MMD 845-1 BK - Dynamic, super-cardioid
'High feedback rejection and powerful sound are the main features of this microphone'.
MME 865-1 BK - Electret condenser, super-cardioid
'Top-notch' microphone for 'nuanced vocal reproduction'. 'Breath taking vocal sound'. Feedback-rejecting capsule. 'High brilliance', 'applicable for either voice or speech'.
This 'features the excellent acoustic properties of the wired e 935 vocal microphone'. Cardioid pick-up pattern 'provides isolation from other on-stage signals'; 'uniform on-axis and off-axis response'. 'Specially developed for use under loud on-stage conditions'. 'Makes vocals cut through the mix'. Colour: Black.
MMD 945-1 BK - Dynamic, super-cardioid
'Unsurpassed in its class with a smooth, natural sound' with 'tremendous sound clarity and feedback rejection', the MMD 945 'features the excellent acoustic properties of the wired e 945 vocal microphone'. Colour: Black.
MMK 965-1 BK - Large diaphragm, true condenser - cardioid or super-cardioid, switched
'Powerful, high-definition sound makes it one of the best microphone heads of all time. Due to its dual-membrane technology, the pick-up pattern can be easily switched between cardioid and super-cardioid for extreme versatility'. Colour: Black.
MM 435 - Dynamic, cardioid
Sennheiser describe the MM 435 capsule to have 'nuanced resolution and transparency'. It has a large diaphragm diameter and a frequency response of 40-20,000Hz. With a maximum SPL of 163dB and dynamic range of 146dB(A), MM 435 is designed for live vocals in high volume conditions.
MM 445 - Dynamic, super-cardioid
This microphone head has very similar attributes as the MM 435 however the pickup pattern is super-cardioid and is therefore more resistant to background noise and feedback.
