Wireless microphones are excellent tools for public speaking; handheld, clip-on and head-worn microphones all have benefits depending on the venue. Unfortunately, one of the more useful mic features – the mute switch – has always added complexity to wireless systems, especially if the audio system does not have an active sound operator at the mixer.

This switch can pose a problem if the user has the transmitter covered with clothing or vestments. What is more, the visual indication of the mute status is often not easy to see regardless of whether the transmitter is covered or not.
