The Samson AirLine 88 is a Headset UHF Wireless system, operating in the D Band: 542-566 Mhz.*

*NOTE: Not for use in the EU.

The AirLine 88 Headset system offers true wireless freedom, eliminating the hassle of beltpacks and attachment cables. It features a lightweight, sweat-resistant micro transmitter headset with secure, yet comfortable fit. It's a frequency-agile UHF wireless system that offers high definition sound, premium reliability, and 300ft operating range for fitness instructors and active performers.

The Wireless Future
Building on the legacy of the world's first cable-free wireless system (Samson's AirLine 77), the AirLine 88 Headset combines a micro transmitter and adjustable gooseneck into a low profile headset that molds to the shape of your head. Other great features of the AH8 Headset Transmitter include an internal 8-hour rechargeable lithium ion battery, easily accessible Gain and Mute controls, and IR sync to wirelessly match the receiver and transmitter frequency.

Fitness In Mind
Designed with Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and cycling instructors in mind, the system's headset features sweat-resistant components, and includes an adjustable stainless steel gooseneck, sealed circuit board, plus AE50X micro-miniature microphone capsule. The capsule's cardioid pickup pattern prevents feedback and other unwanted noise from affecting a performance.

Tour Support
Offering frequency-agile operation, the rack mountable CR88 Wireless Receiver provides 16 selectable channels for dependable performance no matter where you are. The receiver's True Diversity design minimizes dropouts, while tone key technology prevents interference. For classes with more than one instructor or facilities with multiple studios, up to 8 systems per frequency band can be used simultaneously.
