Hatsubai's review"High quality wireless"

Sennheiser ew 172 G2
The Sennheiser EW172 G2 is a wireless device aimed towards guitarists. It features a half rack unit with a wireless pack like most other wireless devices on the market have. The biggest difference is that this unit actually uses AA batteries instead of the notorious 9V batteries.

The unit itself is nice and compact. It’s a half rack size, but you actually need a full rack size to utilize this. When you buy the rackmount kit (sold separately), half of the rackmount is dedicated towards racking this device, and the other half is dedicated towards the antennas. The antennas will be coming out of the front of your rack, so be sure not to break them. I almost knocked them off a few times when not paying attention.

The device sounds very transparent. Like all wireless devices, there will be some tone suckage. There’s just no getting around that. However, this device is transparent enough to where it shouldn’t matter that much in a live setting. The device is easy to program and easy to set up. Range is great, and the best part about it is that it uses AA batteries. Most wireless devices uses those more expensive 9V batteries which tend to die quickly. The longer life of this unit helps pay for itself as you’re not replacing your batteries after every single gig.

If you’re looking for a wireless today, I’d actually steer you in the direction of the revitalized X2. When I bought this unit, that wasn’t available, and this was roughly the best wireless on the market for the price. The connector that connects the body pack to the guitar is a bit cheap, so you might want to replace that, but aside from that, it’s a great wireless. See if you can find a deal on eBay or something.

Sennheiser ew 172 G2
Sennheiser system devoted to instruments.

It's 100 Series second generation (G2), extremely little difference with the 300 series (except the accessories for rack mounting).
The transmitter is very compact, easy to use. With its illuminated display was the possibility to make adjustments in all circumstances. However, the power button is arranged under the disc, pens not to be supported by mistake, gets a little hard about how to turn off the transmitter often when not in use.
For frequencies, it's perfect, I do not even need to change it since. (Is lit and it works). The UHF help, I had no signal dropouts.
Autonomy is really excellent, with 2 AA batteries (new in Round G2), he buries his predesesseur far.

In short I use the EW 172 G2 for my electric guitar and I am very satisfied. One of the best system

Sennheiser ew 172 G2
Use for 6 months
You plug it works, it colors the sound very little (but even between two jacks there is a small difference in sound, so ...
Value, it must be that!
Before this one, all I have tried cheaper, bulk sound to the point that I gave up buying.
A remake I bought (I also think buying one or two transmitters because I use several guitars on stage. Really good point: you can use batteries (batteries) batteries. It is really convenient and cheap!
Warning: the kit for rack mounting costs arm and a leg! Just as the sennheiser batteries!
