Features of wireless microphones
A wireless microphone will generally look just like a typical microphone - and they can come in many varieties including stick microphones. They will generally be in one of three different model types. First, there is the handheld, which looks like a traditional microphone, but simply doesn't have the cable attached. Others have a cube located on the base of the microphone, while others will have a body pack, which can attach to the belt. This type of wireless system is generally for use with lavalier or lapel mikes, and those microphones connected to headsets.
How wireless microphones work
The system utilizes a battery-powered transmitter located right in the body of the microphone. This will then take the signal from someone speaking or singing into the microphone and transmit it via radio waves to a receiver unit that is nearby. The receiver can be connected to other types of audio devices via a cable.
