I just bought an XD-V55HS wireless system and would like to know if I can now buy another headset mic to use with the receiver. Can the receiver of this system handle more than just the one mic? And if so then I assume both mics would be on the same frequency as the receiver so would that work, having two mics on the same frequency?
Receiver To Xd-v55hs System Using More Than 1 Mic?

…The answer (or answers) depend/s on exactly what it is you mean by each of your questions.
...Can the receiver of this system handle more than just the one mic?...
As with all wireless mic systems, there is only ONE audio output available at each receiver's back panel, albeit being "copied" to two connectors, being one jack and one XL male, because each wireless "chain" or "channel" usually consists of a single "source" transmitter working exclusively to its "mate" receiver...
The agility that comes with the digital technology used in Line 6's XD-V systems does make it VERY easy to accommodate multiple XD-V beltpack transmitters (in your case, just two, ...each with its own headset) in two different ways.
So, when you ask...
...if so then I assume both mics would be on the same frequency as the receiver so would that work, having two mics on the same frequency?
...one answer would be yes, that COULD indeed work, but your "original" headset's beltpack would first need to be switched off, so that subsequently switching on the beltpack of an identical second headset system would trigger that second system's digital "handshake" with your single receiver, …whereby that second one would then "take ownership" of your receiver and almost instantly become available at that receiver's output.
One of the many joys of XD-V technology is the silence of that type of switch-over, as distinct from the "shash" and/or "splats" that would accompany any attempts to do the same with most others.
A second answer would be that you could have such a pair of headsets and beltpacks configured so that each was set to "its own" channel, and then simply switch between them from the front panel of your receiver.

To elaborate slightly further, there isn't any way in which you can use two transmitters at the same time with one receiver and get a mixed output of the two. This is the same for every wireless system - you need one receiver for each transmitter. (There are some systems out there that have more than one receiver in a single box and offer a mixed output but the same rules apply - each transmitter has to be on its own frequency in order to be able to operate simultaneously.)
