The new fourth-generation 3000 Series wireless systems from Audio-Technica offer easy setup, versatile operation, and dependable, high-fidelity sound. These fourth-generation 3000 Series wireless systems give you the power and flexibility to operate within the congested UHF spectrum. The systems have an operating range of 300' (100 m) and are available in two frequency bands - DE2 (470–530 MHz) and EE1 (530–590 MHz) – that provide a class-leading 60 MHz tuning range, which is more than twice that offered by the previous 3000 Series models.

Frequencies can be easily scanned and selected on the receiver and then synced with the handheld or body-pack transmitters via IR sync functionality. The handheld transmitter offers extremely low handling noise and includes an industry-standard thread mount for use with six interchangeable A-T microphone capsules, as well as other compatible capsules. The body-pack transmitter features a tactile mute toggle switch (defeatable) for physical confirmation of mute status when transmitter display is not visible. Both transmitters have a multifunction button that, among other options, can be set to switch to a backup frequency in the event of unexpected interference.

Available system configurations feature an ATW-R3210 receiver along with an ATW-T3201 body-pack or ATW-T3202 handheld transmitter. The ATW-T3201 is equipped with Audio-Technica's new rugged cH-style screw-down 4-pin connector for secure connection to A-T's cH-style lavalier and headworn microphones, or cables. The ATW-T3202 comes with either an ATW-C510 dynamic or ATW-C710 condenser interchangeable cardioid capsule, and its industry-standard thread allows for the use of four additional A-T capsules, plus other compatible capsules. Both transmitters feature rugged, metal housings and are powered by two AA batteries. Charging terminals on each transmitter work with the ATW-CHG3 and ATW-CHG3N smart charging docks (sold separately) to recharge NiMH batteries.
