wireless hand held with non-latching Push To Talk?
« on: August 12, 2022, 09:51:12 AM »

Does anyone know of an option for a wireless hand held non-latching push to talk button? The only thing I've seen is for Shure ADX, but that's a bit too expensive for my needs. I have Shure AD2s, but not the ADX2s.
I looked at the Sennheiser EW100, but I don't think that mute button can be configured this way.
There could be a third party adapter that screws on between the transmitter body and the capsule, but I've not seen one.

I think the cheapest (major brand) solution is probably going to be the Sennheiser e835-S-PTT and a plug-on transmitter. Not quite as slick as an all-in-one unit, but easy to implement and relatively inexpensive (assuming you already own the plug-on transmitter, anyway).

I've used that exact "butt-plug" setup before on corporate talking head gigs, and they work fine...but aren't very pretty.

Sennheiser XS series have a slick integrated system, but it sounds like the OP runs a Shure house.

Shure Axient Digital, and the older UHF-R systems have butt-plugs available.

The problem with the above setups is that the switches are latching...and the OP specified non-latching.

I can't think of any microphone with a momentary switch that isn't for a paging system or similar.

Cheers,
Tim

My Sennheiser ew300 G3 handhelds can do this
The button on the transmitter can be configured in five modes:
RF on/off
AF on/off
Push to talk
Push to mute
Disabled

I'm pretty sure the push to talk is latching though, which is not what the OP wanted.

Im trying not to be wrong, thats why I waited with my response until I could try

BTW a latching Push to talk would be the same as AF on/off, kind of redundant

I use the radial relay xo with a momentary footswitch.  Works great

The little Sennheiser ENG wireless will work with the specified PTT mic, the whole radio is built in the XLR.

+1; the SKM 300 (and only the 300) has this feature in the current G4 version as well.

{...} I can't think of any microphone with a momentary switch that isn't for a paging system or similar.

...not even the Sennheiser e835-S-PTT I mentioned in my earlier post? :P
