Expanded Sennheiser AVX-MKE2-3 Set Key features:

Audio Setup Made Simple

The Sennheiser AVX-MKE2-3 Set benefits from a lightweight and compact design for an impressively portable bit of audio kit. Both the transmitter and receiver each weigh a feathery 87g, even though the kit benefits from the durability of a rugged metal chassis. To keep things efficient on the road, Sennheiser also includes a locking connector to ensure your lav doesn’t accidentally disconnect at critical recording moments, a switch for convenient muting and a display with indicators for battery life and signal strength.

The compact receiver plugs directly into the XLR input of your device and can rotate 320-degrees so that it's out of the way and does not disturb other mounted accessories. Although this audio set is perfect for plug-and-play, an AF button is included on the receiver for adjusting the output level to your camera if desired. A shoe mount and 3.5mm output cable is also provided for more universal use with DSLR and mirrorless setups.

Protected Pairing

Pairing your kit is as easy as pressing a button - both the transmitter and receiver have a pairing control that can be held down for a short duration to get you set up. When the LED indicator turns green, your audio kit is good to go. If you’re planning for a busy shoot, you can pair up to 8 AVX systems and operate them simultaneously within the same 98’ area - it’s worth noting, though, that these devices work on a peer-to-peer basis so every transmitter will need a receiver and vice versa.

Once powered up, the digital AVX automatically finds the cleanest frequency in the license-free 1.9 GHz range so you don’t have to battle with TV or WiFi interference. If any interference is detected, the AVX automatically increases the power on the transmitter anywhere up to 250 mW. This kit also benefits from the strongest AES 256 encryption for truly worry-free sound recording.

Premium Performance

The included MKE2 omnidirectional lavalier microphone is a popular choice for those wanting natural sound optimised for speech intelligibility. With an omnidirectional polar pattern, this lavalier ensures that sound remains consistent, regardless of the speaker's movements.

The AVX’s automatic mic-level control also takes full advantage of the wide dynamic range provided to provide consistent speech free from clipping and distortion - ideal for enthusiastic speakers with rising intonations. In delivering 24-bit/48 kHz audio with an extended 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, the AVX MKE2 set is a truly premium system for pristine, clean recordings. Compared with the ME2, the MKE2 also offers improved frequency response, sensitivity and a higher SPL rating (check those specs).

Professional Power Management

The AVX transmitter and receiver both feature removable, lithium-ion batteries that are recharged via the USB port. Whilst the transmitter can provide up to 15 hours of battery life, the receiver is limited to 4 hours. However, the receiver turns itself on and off when phantom power is sensed from your camcorder or DSLR. Both devices can also be powered through their USB ports for indefinite use when access to AC mains power is available.

Whilst Sennheiser has dynamically designed the AVX-MKE2 set with advanced power management in mind, the included BA 30 batteries are also available separately so you can extend battery life in the field with fully charged spares.

Can the MKE2 be used internationally without interference?

The Sennheiser AVX-MKE2 is data encrypted so you don’t get cross-talk issues during recording. This is a self-contained system that is ideal even for those wanting an audio solution whilst travelling around.

Can the transmitter be used with other audio devices?

Providing the physical connections and impedance of the signal meet the required specifications, you can use the transmitter with other audio devices. The bodypack transmitter features a 3.5mm jack and accepts either a microphone with a maximum input of 2.2V RMS (50 to 20,000 Hz response) or a line-level source with a maximum input of 3.3V RMS (20 to 20,000 Hz response).

What is the maximum operating range for this set?

This set operates within line of sight - this is equivalent to 98’ or 29.9m.

How long will the batteries last?

The supplied Sennheiser Accupack batteries can operate for approximately 4 hours before needing to be recharged.

What is the difference between the ME2 and the MKE2?

Both the ME2 and the MKE2 are industry-leading audio kits ideal for professional videographers, video journalists and vloggers. The MKE2, however, enters the higher end of the market by offering wider frequency response, sensitivity and a higher SPL rating for better headroom before distortion - it’s more suited to advanced audio buffs tackling difficult sound environments.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
