Enhanced Audio for Sports

Enhancing fan engagement is the objective, capturing more audio from the field of play, from the players themselves or from the actual field. Q5X transmitters are the smart, and often, the best choice..

Unlike anything else out there

Q5X bodypacks are a third of the size of conventional transmitters, sweat-resistant or waterproof, use internal rechargeable batteries, and they are TOUGH.


Safe, rugged and sweatproof. Flexible rubber case makes it ideal for athletes. Worn in pockets or pouches incorporated into the jerseys or taped to pads.

NBA Mic’d Up

PlayerMic and RCAS™ technology was originally designed for the NBA in order to mic players, over 10 years ago. They were built to be unobtrusive, safe and not interfere with the game. It is still the only bodypack transmitter allowed by the NBA.

I was very impressed with the Q5X RF mics for the players on the field!

ESPN Technical manager

I just got back my BeltMic from a season long rental with the Washington Nationals baseball team and it really stood up to the tortured conditions that a Playermic go through over 6 months of use. You have a great product!

These transmitters were awesome. At first we were skeptical, because they were so small. We put them in the quarterback and the runningback’s pads. The players didn’t even know the transmitters were on them. The sound we got back was great.

Gear worked great, sounded awesome. I foresee PlayerMics in all our futures…

We used the ultra small Q5X AquaMic transmitters on kite-surfers during a competition and these units performed exceptionally well. We used a QR-2000 receiver with Q5X yagi antennae positioned on the pier with the competitors frequently traveling well outside 350-400m from the RX point.
