Sennheiser's evolution wireless G2 Series is the second generation of its evolution wireless series that can be used for vocals, instruments, presentations, camera work or wireless monitoring.

Due to a broader switching bandwidth (36 MHz), evolution wireless G2 now makes 1,440 channels available to the user, offering more flexibility and greater transmission reliability. The most striking changes have been made to the bodypack transmitters and mobile receivers, which have been reduced in size by about 30 percent. Additional features include the Scan function that automatically searches for free channels and the new intuitive user menu and large backlit displays. A pilot tone squelch ensures that the transmitter microphone can be switched on and off without noise; the (adjustable) squelch can be deactivated to guarantee compatibility with the first evolution wireless generation.

With the new reset function, the system can be reset to its initial settings. The evolution wireless G2 also has a new battery concept: The body pack transmitters and mobile receivers are powered by two AA-size cells to ensure a longer operating time and stable RF performance. In addition, a powerful rechargeable battery pack, the BA 2015, is now available for the handheld transmitter, the bodypack transmitter, the plug-on transmitter and the mobile receiver. The matching charger recharges the batteries either directly or—for the 300 Series and above—while they are still inside the bodypack transmitter/receiver.

The heart of the evolution G2 Series is the True Diversity rack receiver, which features a fresh and attractive design. The audio outputs are designed as unbalanced 1/4-inch jack sockets and balanced XLR sockets. The receiver has eight fixed frequency banks that, depending on the system, provide up to 20 suggestions for free frequencies, as well as a freely programmable user bank. Depending on the series selected, the receiver automatically scans one or all banks for free frequencies. Two-color back-lighting for the display (300 Series and above) immediately shows the transmission status. A green light means that everything is in order and that the audio signal is available at the receiver output, while a red light indicates that there is a fault or that the transmission has been interrupted. The receivers of the 500 Series also have four equalizer presets, as well as a Soundcheck mode and a separately adjustable headphone output.

The evolution wireless G2 includes five series. The evolution wireless ew 100 G2 Series, which, with its 11 sets, covers all areas of wireless audio transmission, from vocals and instruments to presentations and camera sound. Supplied complete with rack adapters, the seven sets in the ew 300 G2 Series offer enhanced RF and AF properties for vocals, presentations and instruments. For the ew 500 G2 Series, the user can choose from individual components that are supplied complete with accessories. The ew 550 G2 Series at the top end of the evolution wireless range includes the EM 550 twin receiver, which can be combined with any transmitters from the 500 Series. The ew 300 IEM G2 Series offers the artist a wireless monitoring system with an ultracompact receiver. The system is supplied complete with rack adapter and earphones. Additional receivers with earphones are available separately.
