QT-AD10 PlayerMic


Micro sized transmitter, in a flexible polymer, water resistant case. The QT-AD10 offers Axient Digital audio transmission with encryption and a high density mode for spectrum efficiency.  With an internal lithium polymer rechargeable battery and Lemo connector for a removable lavalier.

  • 4 hr run time @ 10mW (PlayerMic S)
  • 8 hr run time @ 10mW (PlayerMic)
  • Power output range 2 – 20mW


Superior Digital Performance

The QT-AD10 Digital PlayerMic and Digital PlayerMic S bodypack transmitters have been developed in collaboration with Shure Corporation to work exclusively with Shure Axient Digital receivers, ensuring superior digital transmission with advanced encryption and spectrum efficiency.

Remote Control Audio System

The QT-AD10 Digital PlayerMic utilizes the RCAS™ (Remote Control Audio System) a revolutionary way to remotely control transmitter settings from a central computer or hand held remote control. The remote functions allow technicians to control; on/off, monitor status and battery level and make on-the-fly adjustments of frequency, mic offset, mic mute, RF power level, and grouping, all wirelessly.

Four UHF Tuning Blocks

The QT-AD10 Digital PlayerMic is offered in 4 tuning blocks that span 470 to 700 MHz and 941 to 960 MHz in 25 kHz steps.

Comfortable and Concealable

The QT-AD10 Digital PlayerMic has a flexible polymer case to create the safety and ruggedness required for professional sports.  The Digital PlayerMic has a run time of 8 hrs at 10mW, while the shorter Digital PlayerMic S has a run time of 4 hours at 10mW.   Weighing only 2 ounces and less than a 1/2 inch thick, the Digital PlayerMic joins the Q5X family as the safest and most comfortable audio transmitter in the industry.
