    great sound quality and looks also great.The only thing is that your talent needs to be careful because when you hold it loose and move your hands or scrub it.it affects the sound and it records all the scrubbing sound.i think you need to monitor it all the time.other than that its a really good item for a price.

    Sound is good, wireless reception is good. What's not good is handling noise. It,s a bit extreme. We purshased it to shoot a web serie involving man on the street interviews. It's not the best mic for that. The talent need to be vary carefull with his hands.

    Another thing I dislike is the placement of the on/off switch. You need to unscrew the battery compartiment to access it. Wrong choice of design.

    For my application, I find this mic usable, but not great. I sugest you to put some more $ toward a better kit

      Comments about Samson UM1 Portable Handheld Wireless Microphone System (Frequency N4- 644.750 MHz):

      This wireless mic is one of the few around that don't require power in the receiver. It takes 9V batteries in the mic and the receiver. The Receiver has a mini to XLR, which is ideal.

      Sound quality is excellent.

      Other people have mentioned that it is a shame to have to unscrew the mic handle to turn it off fully. The switch at the bottom is mute, but to turn off you do have to unscrew the handle. This is a bit of a pain, but all other aspects make this an ideal product for mobile camera work.

      I use this product for my video productions of weddings and parties
      This microphone exports the best audio quality
      Although when hearing the sound with headphones, you have that static sound.
      But other than that I like this microphone!
      Its really easy to set up via 3.5 mm or XLR
      You can mount it anywhere oh your camera with the velcro (included)

            System used for theactrical performances, weddings, events. The sound quality is very clean with virtually no drop-out or signal interference problems. I have wireless systems that cost four times as much and the Samson works just as well. Can't think of anything that I don't like about this wireless system.

                        The only negative about this system is the position of on/off switch. You need to open covers to get to it, that is the only draw back on this unit.
