Wireless, evolved. Deliver pristine audio quality with our ZMT3-Phantom, 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 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 works with condenser, dynamic or ribbon microphones.

Perfect for boom pole operation, the ZMT3-Phantom 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.

The ZMT3-Phantom is not intended to be used with lavalier microphones.

A balanced 3-pin LEMO provides input connectivity.


The ZMT3-Phantom 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 provides a 114dB dynamic range with no limiting or compression distortion. Phantom power is selectable in 12, 24, 32 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.
