Sennheiser 600 MHz Wireless Trade-in


FCC Restricting Wireless Mic Frequencies

Your system may be affected. If your current wireless system is affected we will help you trade in your old 600 MHz gear towards new wireless gear from Sennheiser.

Sennheiser Is Offering Up To $600 Rebate On Wireless Mic Systems When You Trade In Your Affected System.

Offer Ends June 30, 2018!

Sennheiser 600 MHz Wireless Trade-in Offer

1. Check The Operating Frequency Range

To check if your current wireless will be affected, look for a printed sticker on your equipment indicating its frequency range.

Wireless mics and monitoring systems are currently allowed to operate from 470 – 698 MHz.  In the next few years, FCC will limit operation to 470 – 608 MHz.  While the majority of wireless systems in use today will be unaffected, customers with systems that operate above 608 MHz will, unfortunately, need to discontinue use and migrate to new frequency ranges.

In this illustration, feedback is represented by the output coming from a ceiling mounted monitor feeding back into a microphone with a cardiod pattern.
