Sennheiser LSP 500 Pro

Sennheiser’s idea behind the LSP 500 Pro was to emphasize mobility, flexible operation, and wireless connectivity not only for microphone links but for control as well. Bluetooth links and UHF transmission between speaker units leave most of the cabling behind, and users can expand the system up to 20 speakers. Add a Wi-Fi router, and multiple speakers can all be wireless-pad-controlled. There is also Bluetooth streaming, USB recording, and playback along with hot-swappable batteries.
