    I have only used these a few times, but the little I have used them has been in the worst conditions possible. They work very well inside convention centers and buildings, even around other audio equipment. The range seems to be about 20 feet, but I hardly ever shoot more than about 10-15 feet from the camera anyway. Sounds quality is quite good, actually as good as the thousand dollar Sennheisser pr kit I have rented in the past. Again, just without the distance and without the huge variety of channels. They do feel a little cheap and I take extra care with them, as it feels like the battery doors are just looking for an excuse to fly off. Also, the hand held mic is way too light and feels like a toy. Don't ever hand it to someone you are interviewing, they will think its a joke. Overall, extremely pleased with the product, and would recommend to anyone not looking to spend over $1000.

    I bought the WMS-PRO mic system to connect to my computer and record audio from presentations I give. The computer automatically syncs the audio and slides so I can export a video of the presentation afterward.The WMS-PRO looked like the perfect solution to be able to walk around the room and still get good quality audio. Unfortunately, I'm not really experienced with pro-audio (if you could call this flimsy plastic mic professional anyway) and didn't know the difference between mic-level and line-level.Well, here's the difference. Mic-level is extremely low and needs to be amplified to be used. You can't simply plug it into your computer's microphone port and record quality audio. The only way to get professional quality audio out of this system and into a computer is through a preamp or USB audio interface. Fortunately this unit comes with a headphone jack, and I was able to take a male-male cable and plug it into my computer's mic port and get decent audio. It's not excellent quality, but fine for recording my presentations.Overall, I think it's a decent product but it seems too expensive for the manufacturing quality and features. It's made of flimsy plastic and feels like it would just shatter if dropped. My kids have $10 walkie talkies that were made better.Overall I can't really recommend it. It gets the job done, but there's got to be something better out there for less money.

      Comments about Azden WMS-PRO VHF Wireless Lavalier Handheld Mic System:

      I am using this for recording audio for video. Needless to say that you wouldn't get a decent audio through your on-board camcorder microphone. The problem with wired microphones are actually the wires. This is a compact system that operates on 9 volt standard batteries and comes with all the necessary connectors and cables, including a mono to stereo cable so that you can connect it to your camcorder's stereo mic input. The sound quality is good. Overall, well made, well priced and no complains.

          Comments about Azden WMS-PRO VHF Wireless Lavalier Handheld Mic System:

          I use this product for simultaneous interpretation (translation), to hear the speaker or "floor" signal. By miking the speaker directly, leaving the mike on the podium, or even hanging it over a loudspeaker, I get excellent sound. I can even connect the auxiliar output of a sound board to the mike input of the Azden to tap into the house system. It will take a surprisingly high signal level, although for best results I sometimes use a signal-dropping adapter. I use the earphone output on the receiver to hear, although I usually connnect it through a battery-operated headphone amplifier to feed a pair of stereo phones for best level and control. I find the reception absolutely trouble-free, no noise, clicks, or interference. I use the two frequencies simultaneously in adjacent rooms or through a mixer when I need two source mikes. Range is excellent, goes through walls, better than my 72-MHz system used to transmit the interpretation to listeners. Have bought two and am about to buy a third one. No durability problems. Have not tried the cheapaer Sony or AT systems, for fear of not getting the same known performance. Brightness of LED indicates battery status. Have not used the hald-held mike.

            We make a lot of hiking videos and wanted higher quality audio and more freedom to make creative shots. Having a wireless mike has given us both. We now have our talent at a distance with clear, distinct vocals and little wind noise.
            We are amazed at the quaility of the sound and the units themselves. For the money we have not found a better solution.
            We also like the simplicity of the system and how easy it is to set up and use.

            Easy set up, easy use, decent quality. Eventually, when you have enough money, you can purchase a better quality mic and a stereo unit. But for now this is a decent set up.

            Comments about Azden WMS-PRO VHF Wireless Lavalier Handheld Mic System:

            The system works good with this exception - the ear phone does not play loud enough in my ear, making it's use ...useless. I wish it had a volume control on the ear piece. IT's way too low. Also, a carry bag would have been nice if they had added that. Lots of pieces and wires to keep track of. Quality of sound is good though, although you have to hope it records OK, since you can't hear what you're getting in the ear piece. It did record fine, and clear, once I checked it. The convenience of the hot shoe mount is great.

                  I bought this unit almost 10 years ago and today after many uses I needed to replace it. I could have tried a different brand or model but for what I need it for I thought why take a chance and wish I just got an Azden. It's not dual but have never found it phasing in and out. I've even used it to transmit from the phono jack from my stereo in the living room to my head phones while I'm outdoors(probably not recommended but it worked).

                    Not being very camera savy, even though I do use a DSLR, this system was very easy to figure out and connect and use with my Canon Rebel T3I. It works like a charm and the quality of my sound is much better than the built in microphone. This is an easy and quick solution to sound recording.

                                  I needed a microphone that could be connected to my DLSR camera and this one works very well for that. I purchased a second transmitter so I can run two lapel mics at the same time.

                                  The receiver attaches to the top of the camera so there is not trouble with just setting it up and being able to move and make adjustments while leaving the camera steady.

                                  Good product for the money. Entry level product which is what i need. If you are looking for "professional" quality look elsewhere. Would not stand up to professional use but works adequately for my amateur blog.

                                  First things first, they look good but feel realy cheap, the clip to attach to your belt is so weak you can look at it and it might break, the hand held microphone feels cheap but works well really sensative, also the instruction say to unscrew the microphone in order to change the battery, oly problem is , the gand held microphone does NOT take batteries so dont try to unscrew anything on the handheld in regards to a battery, SOUND = there is a really loud Hiss when you play back the recording if your listning through headphones atleast on channel one when recording directly to the camera, I did not try channel two yet to see if it goes away. this was when I was recording straight to my Canon Eos 7D, when recording straight to my Zoom H4n the hiss is gone, I am not overly happy with this product but. I gave it a 3 start because of the hiss and how cheap it feels and because you cannot record straight into the camera you have to use a $300.00 Zoom H4n in order to get the proper clean sound. Azden should upgrade the cheap clip and upgrade the outer shell and then you would have a home run. if your on a budget or doing you-tube, how to videos or interviews you can get away with using this unit, it looks good but does suffer in quality and sound when going directly into camera.
