The Sennheiser SpeechLine Wired series

Sennheiser is completing its series of installation microphones with a new tablestand-gooseneck combination. The SpeechLine Wired series ensures optimum quality and offers scalable solutions for meetings, conferences and presentations.

“The SpeechLine Wired series includes electrostatic boundary microphones for meetings and audio conferences and tablestand combinations for presentations and lectures,” explained Kai Tossing, Portfolio Manager Business Communication at Sennheiser. The boundary microphones, which share the product name MEB (microphone electrostatic boundary), are available as in-table and on-table models. They each come in three different colours: white, black or Nextel grey, thus providing optimum integration into any meeting environment. The tablestand combinations, which have the product name MAT (microphone accessory tablestand), are available in black and Nextel grey.



Audio specialist Sennheiser is now launching the final components of its SpeechLine Wired series: the MAT 153-S tablestand has an XLR 5 input and a programmable, two-colour LED ring switch and is phantom-powered. It is also combined with the new MEG 14-40-L-II gooseneck microphone with a matching green light ring.

“A highlight of the series is the legendary Sennheiser ME 36, which guarantees a level of audio quality that is unsurpassed on the market,” said Kai Tossing proudly. “This mini shotgun microphone, which is made in Germany, can be combined with a SpeechLine Wired tablestand as a gooseneck solution.” In addition to the ME 36 (supercardioid/lobar), the tablestand microphones can also be fitted with ME 34 (cardioid) or ME 35 (supercardioid) capsules. Customers can also choose from goosenecks in five different lengths.


Regardless of the model, colour or combination, all SpeechLine Wired installation microphones are available with or without a ‘mute’ switch. The switch, which is indicated by an “S” in the product name, has a two-colour LED ring. When the microphone is switched on, the ring is illuminated in green. If the microphone is muted, the colour automatically changes to red. This colour combination is intuitively recognised by all users, thus making the microphone extremely user-friendly. On the in-table microphones, the LED ring is directly on the microphone itself. The ‘mute’ switch, which also has a light ring, is integrated into the table top.

All installation microphones from the SpeechLine Wired series are available for shipping to Australia and New Zealand.
