Who We Are:

When you hear a professional athlete live during a broadcast, chances are that they are wearing a tiny, flexible microphone transmitter manufactured by Q5X. Because we are the smallest and only flexible transmitter, teams / leagues feel safe having players wear our devices to enhance the audiences’ viewing experience. Listen to actual Q5X uses in “mic’d up” segments of:
