What you’ll need to connect wireless headset to GoXLR

First, you need to make sure your wireless headset base station has a Line/Aux In connector. We’ll use this to connect the headphone output of the GoXLR to the base station.

If you do not have a Line In and only a USB transmitter, it unfortunately is not compatible.

The next thing you will need is a Ground Loop Noise Isolator and a 3,5 Aux cable.

Simply connect your 3,5mm Aux cable to the headphone output of the GoXLR and connect the other end to the Ground Noise Loop Isolator. After that, connect the Isolator to the Base station of your wireless headset.

And that’s it! You should now be able to simply use your wireless headset as you did before. As a result, annoying noises such as loud “hissing”, “crackling” or “buzzing” interference will be isolated by the filter completely.

In conclusion, setting up the GoXLR with a wireless headset is rather simple. However it requires a few additional pieces of hardware to get it working without any issues.
