    This is a Wireless microphone? Wireless operating system is included?


    No, this is a wired microphone. Note that many "wired" microphones can be made wireless however with the addition of a plug-on type transmitter, such as our ATW-T1802 Plug-on Transmitter. This transmitter can be used with either our ATW-R1810 or ATW-R3100b Wireless Receiver to complete the wireless solution. Note that the more cost-effective solution however is one of the bundled wireless systems shown at the following link. If you have additional questions, please fell free to contact our Audio-Solutions Department at (330)-686-2600 ext 5000.
