Delivering pristine audio quality in a lightweight transmitter ideal for sound professionals


The new ZMT3-Phantom 2 now supports both balanced phantom powered microphones as well as compatible unbalanced lavalier microphones.

Originally designed to change wireless booming, the ZMT3-Phantom allowed you to place the lightweight transmitter at the top of the boom pole instead of the bottom and accepted only condenser, dynamic or ribbon microphones.

With its overwhelming acceptance in the sound community, Zaxcom listened to customer feedback and created the ZMT3-Phantom 2 which fully supports 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V balanced microphones and 3.3V lavalier microphones. This new capability has been added to the ZMT3-Phantom 2 while maintaining the same size, weight and power consumption of the previous model.

“We launched the ZMT3-Phantom as a way to improve the boom operating experience, but we learned from our customers they wanted to be able to use it with lavalier style microphones too. We’re very happy to announce the ZMT3-Phantom 2 supports both,” says Colleen Goodsir, Director of Sales and Marketing at Zaxcom.

Part of Zaxcom’s Digital Recording Wireless line, the new unit touts a 100% digital audio transmission that’s similar in quality to hardwired audio without compander, noise reducer, limiter or compressor distortion. This is especially important when using large diaphragm microphones.

When paired with a boom pole, users can remove the extra weight of the internal or external cable which eliminates any noise that can leak into the audio track. The added support of lavalier microphones makes the ZMT3-Phantom 2 an incredibly versatile solution for professional audio recordists.

The ZMT3-Phantom 2 is equipped with internal backup recording to a microSD card with timecode and 5 hour battery life. The new transmitter has a 100MHz RF tuning range and an impressive dynamic range of 110 dB.

Additional features include a low noise microphone preamp, Zaxcom High Density (ZHD) modulation modes and ZaxNet™ which allows for remote changes in frequency, pre-amp gain or place the transmitter in record, playback and stop modes.

A balanced 3-pin micro LEMO connects the microphone and a graphic OLED shows external audio and battery status levels. The new ZMT3-Phantom 2 is shipping now.




Wireless, evolved. Deliver pristine audio quality with our ZMT3-Phantom 2, a lightweight transmitter ideal for sound professionals.

Zaxcom has taken the next step in design and functionality offered in audio.

Weighing only 2.2oz (62g), the ZMT3-Phantom 2 is constructed in a high strength impact resistant nylon polymer casing with rounded edges and machined metal that’s cool to the touch.


The ZMT3-Phantom 2 works with 3.3V lavalier mics as well as condenser, dynamic or ribbon microphones.

Perfect for boom pole operation, the ZMT3-Phantom 2 is to be positioned at top of the boom pole directly behind the microphone instead of near the bottom. By removing the internal or external cable, operators can eliminate any cable noise that can leak into the audio track.

A balanced 3-pin LEMO provides input connectivity.


The ZMT3-Phantom 2 transmits using 100% digital modulation resulting in audio that’s fully encrypted. Digital encryption is the only way to keep all audio transmission private. A digital transmission also provides audio quality far superior to an analog system.


Audio can be recorded internally to a microSD card using the highly reliable lossless MARF (Mobile Audio Recording Format) which eliminates file corruption common to recordings due to dead battery or early card removal.


The ZMT3-Phantom 2 provides a 110 dB dynamic range with no limiting or compression distortion. Phantom power is selectable in 3.3V, 12V, 24V, 32V and 48V. External audio and battery status levels are easily visible for the operator.


Equipped with ZaxNet™, you can remotely change the frequency, pre-amp gain, output power or place the internal recorder in record, playback and stop modes.
