“In the theatre and on the rock stages we do not want to work without wireless microphones. It is often of great artistic importance not to have cables.”

We’re not only performing for people with perfect hearing, we’re also performing for people who may not be able to hear very well. They should also have the chance to go to the theatre.”

Wireless microphones give us even more freedom on stage. It often makes life difficult when you can’t hear yourself at the same volume on all parts of the stage. That’s why in-ear systems are the perfect complement to on-stage monitors.”

Certain tones or colours of the voice cannot be transmitted to the audience without wireless microphones. It’s often impossible to whisper loud enough in a large hall so that everyone can hear it. Wireless microphones allow you to strike more intimate notes and to heighten artistic expressions.”

Daniela Köhler, Opera Singer

An opera production is like an iceberg – you only see the ten percent on the surface. Even if I’m on stage without a microphone, I rely on colleagues behind the stage who are using them intensively.”

I acted in a guest performance in Berlin once where wireless microphones were glued to our foreheads. The production was highly stylized. And suddenly, the taxi radios of Berlin were being broadcast in the theatre. After a few smirks were exchanged, the show was over.

Acrobatic stage shows became possible with the invention of wireless microphones. Can you imagine Michael Jackson, Pink or other similar acts connected to wires? It’s inconceivable…

Thomas Nowack, Cultural Manager of Church Music

Churches don’t usually have a lot of pop music equipment. The places where ensembles can set up also tend to be multi-functional. That’s why wireless tends to be the medium of choice.”

With a wireless microphone it’s easier for us actors since we can speak quietly and the last row can still understand everything.”
