Engineered to deliver studio quality performance to the wireless world, the hand-tuned Earthworks WL40V Wireless Microphone Capsule features fast impulse response, wide frequency response and high SPL handling. It excels at distance capture, making it ideal for broadcast, corporate, and live performance applications.

Its near-perfect hypercardioid polar response and 50 Hz - 40 kHz extended flat frequency response translate to a natural on and off-axis performance coupled with benchmark levels of sonic clarity and presence. The capsule’s ultra-fast impulse response delivers a highly accurate reproduction of the nuanced details of vocals.

The WL40V’s near-perfect hypercardioid polar pattern is consistent across all frequencies, simplifying mic placement, ensuring more gain before feedback and virtually eliminating phasing issues when using multiple microphones. Singers can also maintain freedom of movement and still maintain pristine sound quality and plenty of gain.

Interchangeable with any screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3 mm/pitch 1 mm threading, the electret-based WL40V works with transmitters from Lectrosonics, Line 6, Shure and Sony.
