At the 131st AES Convention of this year many good things will happened. Earthworks will be there, at New York, and, which it is most important , will present their first ever wireless product, the WL40V Wireless Vocal Microphone Capsule.
Earthworks WL40V is a reworked version in wireless capsule form of the SR40V Vocal Microphone released earlier this year. Designed to maintain the same signature sound as its wired counterpart, the WL40V comes with a detailed and realistic vocal sound that requires little to no EQ. Its textbook perfect hypercardioid polar pattern and extended flat frequency response translate to a natural on- and off-axis performance coupled with benchmark levels of clarity and detail.
The wireless capsule is interchangeable with any screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading, such as those from Lectrosonics, Line 6 and Shure.
Earthworks WL40V will be available through authorized Earthworks dealers Q1 2012, and like all Earthworks microphones, will come with a 15 year warranty.
