The Sennheiser EK 300 IEM G3 In-Ear Wireless Receiver bodypack is designed as a component of the G3 system. For example, the compact receiver features adaptive diversity for ultrareliable reception. The headphone cable is used as a second antenna to banish audio dropouts. Operating the EK 300 IEM G3 is easy, thanks to its intuitive menu navigation and highly-visible backlit graphic display. The wireless receiver's switchable high boost and multi-level limiter complete the package.

Comments about Sennheiser EK 300 IEM G3 In-Ear Wireless Receiver:
Scanning for 20+ different useable open banks of frequencies is cool. Auto IR syncing is cool. But the high noise floor, the random RF zaps and the deafening power-up THUMP make these a danger to your auditory health. Keep shopping. I wish we had.
Bells and whistles galore. Auto scanning for open freqs, plenty of on board eq, limiting, custom naming each pack on the little lcd screen, IR syncing to the transmitters, Sturdy belt loop, quick battery change, every feature you could want in a wireless but one.
The body is sturdy, but the sound sucks. It's remarkable how bad the audio quality is on these things. We have three, and they're all the same. If your ears are in and you power up the unit, it THUMPS at a deafening volume. They really can't do a soft start to save my ears the abuse? Turn the volume pot and you hear scratching like an old wah pedal, and a noise floor that would be totally unusable if the audience were to hear what I hear. I use triple driver custom UE headphones, and the low end is oddly loud but vague. We're hitting the needles on the transmitters pretty solid, but the noise floor hisses on anyway. Hard-panning stereo signals sounds pretty good, not like Shures that get jaggetty after about 9 and 3 o'clock on the pan knobs. After just a month or so, there's a permanent bend in the un-replaceable antenna wire. The RF zingers snap your eardrums hard at seemingly random intervals. I've only had total dropout happen a couple of times, but, man is it lonely for a second or two. These things are expensive. They should sound at least as good as my much cheaper guitar wirelesses do, but they DON'T.
Lots of bells and whistles, but the sound just sucks. Hard. Our management bought these on a recommendation from another artist of theirs, so we're stuck until they break and we can start again.
