The ZMT3-HH features a 100% digital wireless transmission, hardwired balanced mic level analog audio, internal microSD recording with timecode, a programmable function button, battery life up to 14 hours, proprietary Zaxcom technology and more, in an ergonomically tapered design built for performance and rock-solid durability.

It’s fully digital wireless audio transmission features Zaxcom’s patented NeverClip™, which extends the dynamic range of the microphone to 128dB, eliminating the need for a compressor that distorts the natural sound quality at high volume audio levels.

For hardwired connectivity, a balanced XLR output is located on the bottom of the microphone. If for any reason a wireless transmission is not possible due to radio frequency (RF) interference or lack of available channels, the XLR output instantly becomes the fallback, allowing the ZMT3-HH to be used in any situation.

The ZMT3-HH is jam-packed with advanced tech and ideal for everything from professional broadcast shows and live performances to those working on seminars, weddings, internet talk shows, video blogs, gaming videos, concerts, houses of worship and more.
