Engineered to deliver studio quality performance to the wireless world, the hand-tuned WL40V 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 30Hz-40kHz 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.

Interchangeable with any screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading, the electret-based WL40V works with transmitters from Lectrosonics®, Line 6®, Shure® and Sony®. Its circuitry has been specifically hardened for use with 2.4GHz wireless systems, which frequently exhibit noise with electret-based capsules, making it an ideal replacement capsule for those systems.

“In performance, the wired and wireless versions of the Earthworks SR40V are virtually identical to the ear. Using a Shure ULX-D digital wireless system as the base, and setting the levels equal, both spoken word and sung vocals retained the same audio quality and transparency when switching between them.”

Shirley is a very dynamic singer and the WL40V responds well to her different vocal styles. One song she’ll be very intense and aggressive and the next song very soft and lush. 

Brad Divens, Front of House Engineer

It has made a world of difference for me, and especially with Jennifer, because she likes to work in front of the PA speakers for about half of the show, and I have no acoustic feedback problems. When she walks down the 50 foot ramp, when she faces the audience, her body blocks the speakers and when she turns around toward the stage, with the rear of the mic facing the speakers, it all works flawlessly. No matter which way she turns, I have no feedback problems when using the WL40V mic capsule.

This capsule is airy and transparent and so natural sounding that it makes it effortless to sing.
