Audio manufacturer Sennheiser supplied a wireless microphone system for the 2013 MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Holland on 10 November.
Sennheiser’s new Digital 9000 Series microphone system made its debut at the EMAs, with the host Redfoo and all of the awards presenters and winners using the wireless audio equipment.
Eminem, Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Icona Pop, Katy Perry and Kings of Leon all performed at the awards and used Sennheiser 2000 Series in-ear monitors and a combination of Sennheiser 5200 or 2000 Series wireless microphone systems. However, Kings of Leon opted to use MD 431 wired microphones for their performance.
“Being able to utilise the 9000 series for our presenters and winners provided superb audio performance, a remarkable lack of handling noise and allowed us to pick up unwavering radio frequency signals from the presenter podium,” said sound designer for the EMAs Derrick Zieba.
“On a fast paced live television event like this, robust and reliable RF kit is a must. For that reason alone I would choose Sennheiser and, as expected, all of the wireless equipment performed flawlessly throughout.”
