  • Overview


    This product has been updated with new features and is now the 3000 Series Fourth Generation Wireless.

    Audio-Technica’s third-generation 3000 Series wireless systems offer up to 1001 selectable UHF frequencies and new features for clear sound & intuitive operation. We’ve simplified selection of usable frequencies, increased system reliability, and illuminated transmitter screens for clear reads on dark stages. It all adds up to the luxury of rock-solid, richly detailed high-fidelity sound.

    The versatile ATW-T310b cW-style body-pack transmitter features a secure 4-pin locking connector compatible with a wide range of cW-style microphones, as well as a guitar cable. A 3-position sliding cover on the transmitter’s control panel prevents accidental shut-off or channel-switching. A new locking battery compartment provides a more secure latch and more robust design.

    The 3000 Series is available with either a dynamic or condenser handheld transmitter featuring rugged metal construction and slim ergonomic design. The ATW-T341b handheld transmitter includes the stage-proven Artist Elite® AE4100 cardioid dynamic element, and the ATW-T371b handheld transmitter features the studio-quality Artist Series ATM710 cardioid condenser element.

    Don't list an item you aren't selling.

    I've used the 3000 series for several years in a prolific music theatre. These are good packs for their price, and the handhelds are okay when they are handled with care. With the D band becoming unavailable we were planning on purchasing more of these models in the I and C bands. I am disappointed with Audio Technica for continuing to post this item with it's price when it is clearly no longer being manufactured for purchase. We are also upset that the only reasonable alternative, the 4th generation, has an different cable connector. If we went with the 4th generation we would have to purchase an entire set of new lavs plus spares. Which means it is just about as cost effective to switch to a higher quality brand rather then deal with these new problems. Over this period of time the packs and receivers did admirably in a stressful environment. The most common faults have been batteries falling out, and the occasional antenna snapped off by improper actor handling. I would purchase again if made available.

    This product help me a lot.

    I use these mics in the house of worship

    Burnsville, Mn

    true

    I have used many of these and they have always worked well.

    5

    These units sound great, I have used as many as 16 with 16 other brands at the same time with no problems, better to scan the system every time you use them no matter where you are, as there will be surprises, other wirelesses you did not know about and TV stations. The hand held condenser sounds as good as any mike I have used, high pass filter is a handy feature, mid high boost is handy too. Mute/Power loc comes in handy for fidgety actors, speakers and kids. double lock battery compartment is a pain, but works. You must train people how to use the hi-rose connectors properly on the belt packs or tell em to keep their hands off. You must take the time to train the user on the handheld mute and belt pack mute if you don't want problems. Alert light solves a lot of problems when using these systems, also when scanning a bunch of units, make sure the transmitters are spread out a bit, or you will have a lot of harmonics and run out of channels. I have been using wireless since the 80's and what you get for the $ is incredible, I had a 4 channel Vega system from the 80's, you can buy 12 of these for what those cost. You must read the instructions and understand them to get the best performance out of them. been using these systems for over 9 years. Wish the belt packs and mic cases were metal. But then you would just buy the 4000s....:)

    Abilene, Texas

    true

    Dropouts plague these systems. Not worth it...

    I have 12 of these systems. I have stopped using them. I replaced them all with wired mics, and purchased three choral hanging mics with stand adaptors so I can mic the entire stage with a wired system. I set each receiver's frequency individually so that there were NO conflicts, put in new batteries, and tested the handhelds and the theatermic/bodypac combinations. They worked, but only when there was no one else in the room. The second I put them on my performers, drop-outs galore. The only explanation I can figure is that many of my actors wear hearing aids. They aren't in the same frequency range, but the mics gave me FITS for the entire run of our play. Done with this concept and brand. The only reliable wireless mics I have are vhf not uhf. There is also no depot level maintenance -- I have to send to the factory for any repairs.

    "A Great System"

    I have the ATW 341bc system and I like it a lot. I like the simplicity of set-up. I like the size and shape of the transmitter, it has a great feel to it, it doesn't feel cheap, and it also produces great sound. I have ordered and just received the ATW 371bc condenser transmitter to go along with it. These are the types of transmitter that needs to come with the digital system.

    Scottsboro, AL, USA

    Great set of features, sound quality, and value

    5

    Purchased set of six hand-held systems for support of an a cappella chorus. Love them! The chorus immediately noted an increase in sound quality over our previous systems. I love the clear readout of channel, AF and RF strength, etc. -- especially the remote battery monitor. That's saved our bacon during performances! Good noise-free handling characteristics.

    Philadelphia area

    This product is excellent

    I purchased this wireless handheld for live vocal applications. The audio quality is great, excellent gain with no feedback issues, no interference. What else can I say, I'm very pleased with this microphone

    Hartville, OH, USA

    This mic sounds great!

    5

    I bought the ATW3141b couple months ago and I'm using at my church. I love the sound quality and the battery meter on the receiver and transmitter.

    Framingham, MA, USA

    Great versatility and clean power!

    5

    We run 10 of these 3000 Series systems with great fun and success! They are powerful clean and have a great roaming range! We never have a problem with them cutting out or interference. The auto scan is fabulous and I rarely have to use squelch. We use them with 4 DPA vocal headsets, Violin, Viola, Bodrans, Taps...ect.

    Loudonville, OH, USA

    Awesome wireless!!!

    5

    I put this wireless in my mesa bass rig and it has performed flawlessly. I was looking at another manufacturer and a friend suggested this one. It was less expensive than the one I was looking at and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have used it indoors and outdoors with absolutely no issues. I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone wanting to go wireless.

  • Q & A

    Where can I purchase a D band antenna for a ATW-T310b UHF Transmitter?

    Roy

    Thank you for your inquiry. Please contact our Parts Department at 330-686-2600 ext. 5002. They would be happy to help you.

    Rick

    In order to comply with new bandwidth requirements, our church recently purchased a new audio-technical receiver (ATW-3210) and transmitter (ATW-T3201DE2). We would like to trade in our old audio-technical receiver (ATW-R3100bD) and transmitter (ATW-T310bD) but it was not included on your Trade-In Rebate list. I'm attempting to find out if that is correct or can I trade them in? Thanks for your help.

    Rob

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes its is eligible.

    Rick

    It seems that the FCC will still allow wireless mics to operate between 657 MHz and 663 MHz after the 600 MHz transition which the Band D ATW-3100 supports. Is there any reason we can't continue to use that equipment in that band after the transition?

    Craig

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the rule and order states that a system cannot be able to tune into illegal frequencies. The 3000 series D band systems would be able to tune to illegal frequencies.

    Rick

    We have this 3rd gen but our lapel cords needing to replace and a couple of our hand held mics went missing, what is compatible with this system?

    Jon

    While the new transmitters will pass audio to the legacy receivers, it will not pass data such as battery level, names, etc. I recommend contacting your local Audio-Technica Representative for additional assistance on getting setup. https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/features/6a7d826fd52a9da3/index.html

    Brent

    Can we convert D band 3000 series gear to C band? My church has: qty. 4 ATW-R3100 receivers qty. 2 ATW-T310 unipak transmitters qty. 2 ATW-T341 handheld mic/transmitters All were configured for D band at purchase. Now the FCC will be kicking us off of D band but I understand C band is still usable. I could have chosen C band at purchase time, so the equipment must be similar. Is there any way to convert any or all of this gear from D to C so we do not have to replace it all??

    Steve

    There is no "re-crystal" or re-channel option for this A-T wireless system. Our wireless are either crystal controlled (single frequency wireless) or frequency agile (phase locked loop multiple frequency capable wireless) designed to operate within a specific frequency spectrum. The RF spectrum capability of the wireless is determined by frequency specific components. Our crystal controlled wireless could be frequency changed within the band they were designed to operate in, but it is not possible to change either crystal controlled or frequency agile wireless out of the spectrum band they were designed to operate within. You may find helpful information on the FCC's recent auction of the 600 MHz frequency range including our rebate program here: http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-week-story-behind-600-mhz-incentive-auction-will-600-mhz-wireless-microphone-system-eventually-unusable/ http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/16505e589e0be6c8/index.html

    What's the best way to clean the microphones from Audio-technica ATW - T341?

    Matthew

    Thank you for your inquiry. Wipe them down with a slightly damp cloth and make sure they are dry before using again.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Is the microphone connector on the tranmitter the same as the one on tne series700 ?

    AudioTeck

    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it is the 4 pin Hirose.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Can the receiver's XLR and instrument outputs be used at the same time? I'm looking to send audio from the receiver to two different devices.

    Luke

    Yes both output connections will operate simultaneously.
