The Q5X range of radio mics

Quantum Q5X have produced a range of radio mic transmitters that have a range of uses that no other transmitters can match. Due to their unique construction and control they are especially useful for sporting events, theatre and the aquapacks are ideal for reality shows that may involve water!

  • The Majority of our player mics are the smaller variety and the battery is good for 4 hours in these. We do keep a small stock of the larger model that has a 7 Hour battery life

The Aquamic has many of the same fetures as the player mics but in a totally waterproof shell. It is waterproof to 10m and has the longest battery life of Q5X Transmitters the combination of which makes it ideal for reality tv shows where a pool or the sea may be involved!
They are also great to be used as remote FX mixs, where they can be buried under a pitch a day or so before the game and then remotely turned on, close to the start of the event.

If even the tiny Player Mic is too big for you, how about splitting it into two! A revolution in concealment. The two piece rubber case of the Incognito can be hidden in wigs, undergarments or in almost any costume or stage prop.
