Thread: Sennheiser Diversity Receiver as monitor?

  1. Default Sennheiser Diversity Receiver as monitor?

    Does anyone know any reason why the bodypack Receiver shouldn't work as a monitor with a set of headphones?

    I have the EW 100 G3 set, with the plug on mic adaptor, and the receiver on the camera, and then I wanted another receiver as a monitor with headphones, but either I am doing something wrong, or it isn't as simple as that, because plugging some in there doesn't work

    The equipment all works, it goes through the camera ok, but not when you use headphones ( Even Sennheiser ones )

    Is it that they only work with a Line output, or do they need special headsets?

    Any help appreciated

    The output of the Sennheiser G2 and G3 receiver is mic level, not line level, so it is very, very low. Certainly too low to power the speakers in a headset without some form of amplification.
