Part of the Sony DWX N Series digital wireless microphone system, the Sony DWM-02N is a handheld digital wireless microphone with an interchangeable head that works seamlessly with Sony’s DWX N digital wireless transmitters and receivers.
The DWM-02N has an advanced Sony digital codec that means the latency is reduced while exceptional audio quality up to 24-Bit/96kHz is possible. This means the microphone is suitable for live stage performances and other events, broadcast studios, halls, and theatre applications, and ideally suited to recording these performances in superb quality.
The Sony DWM-02N's Interchangeable head mechanism supports Sony and third party capsules, including Shure and DPA d:facto 4018V, 4018VL and 2028.
The Sony DVM-02N Digital Wireless Handheld Mic forms part of DWX N series digital wireless microphone system, working with the DWT-B01N body-pack transmitter and DWT-R02N receiver.
What sets the Sony DWX N series apart?
The DWX N series boasts three Sony codec modes designed for a wide variety of applications:
- MODE1 for compatibility with DWX series applications
- MODE2 with higher quality sound and low latency ideal for theatre, tour and broadcast applications
- MODE3 with more reliable RF transmission ideal for speech applications.
Low audio latency and high quality sound
MODE2 provides higher quality sound with a 96kHz sampling rate and a very low audio latency of 1.5 msec**.
More reliable RF transmissions expands the operation range
MODE3 operation optimised for reliable transmission by preventing drop out by interference with additional error correction
Compatibility with DWX series
MODE1 operation provides the same high quality, reliability and audio latency as the previous DWX series version.
Wireless Studio Mobile software gives users remote control of the DWX N series system via a smartphone.
* Wireless Studio Mobile supported OS: iOS Ver.8.0 or later and Android Ver.4.1 or later. Operation is not guaranteed on all smartphones.
**Analogue out, 2.5 msec for digital out

Superb quality wireless transmission and reception
The digital wireless microphone system transmits and receives high-quality 24-bit digital audio in a specific frequency bandwidth that meets the Wireless Communication Regulations of each country. Utilising the Sony original codec based on Sony’s years of experience in engineering audio products, the system delivers a wide dynamic range of more than 106 dB, a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 22 kHz, and an excellent transient response.
Stable and secure transmission and reception
Incorporating the improved digital modulator, the digital wireless microphone system allows highly stable wireless transmission that is extremely tolerant to unwanted interference. In addition, the system transmits and receives digitally modulated and encrypted data to minimize the risk of interception, providing highly secure transmission and reception.
Simultaneous multi-channel operation
The digital wireless microphone system allows for large-scale multi-channel operations. Thanks to the digital modulator, the system realises an intermodulation-free, equally spaced channel allocation. The digital wireless transmission technology used in this system enables a significant increase in the number of simultaneous operations in comparison with current analogue wireless systems. For example, up to16 channels of simultaneous operation is possible in an 8-MHz operating band.
Three interchangeable heads and third party support
The DWM-02N operates with three heads. The CU-F31 microphone head with dynamic capsule has a super cardioid pick-up and range from 60 Hz to 18 kHz. The CU-F32 microphone head with wide dynamic capsule has a wide cardioid pick-up and range from 70 Hz – 18 kHz. The CU-C31 microphone head with condenser capsule has a cardioid pick-up and range from 60 Hz to 20 kHz. The DWM-02N also supports a wide variety of third party heads.
Quick open/closed mechanism for microphone heads
A robust 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading interchangeable mechanism allows microphone heads to be changed easily and quickly.
Selectable output power
Output power selectable between 1/10/50 mW. Chose the minimum power necessary for a venue, lengthening battery life, and reducing the already low possibility of interference. Allows the microphone to work effectively in a very wide range of venues.
Remote control of transmitter functions from the receiver
Input attenuation, RF frequency selection, RF power output, Audio Low-pass cutoff frequency and transmitter Sleep Mode can all be controlled remotely from the digital wireless receiver. Remote control of up to 82 transmitters can be achieved using the Cross Remote™ function and RMU-01 remote control unit.
Smartphone control using Wireless Studio Mobile software
The DWX N series works with Sony control software Wireless Studio 4.2 or later for PC and Wireless Studio Mobile for smartphones* to give users flexible control of the system.
* Wireless Studio Mobile supported OS: iOS Ver.8.0 or later and Android Ver.4.1 or later.Operation is not guaranteed on all smartphones.
