      I've used this product to record teaching presentations, and it works quite well. Good, clear sound, and very easy to operate. It also only uses two 9 Volt batteries, which is minimal compared to some of the other mike/receiver set ups out there. All in all, you can't beat it for the price. The only thing I wish they would throw in would be an extra lapel clip, since these are easily lost.

      First, it should be noted that I am in no way a professional, or even an accomplished amateur… but I did read the directions and followed them to a "T." The wireless microphone works, right out of the box. The sound quality*, range, and lack of interference are all positives. But please note the "*" --- sometimes the audio records only on the right channel, sometimes only on the left. This is not a fault of the camera or recorder, it seems to be a problem with either the microphone or the transmitter/receiver. I am still trying to figure this out, but unless this is an operator error and I can correct it, I will have to stick with this rather low rating.

          Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 88W-829 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Pro 88W VHF Wireless System:

          I use this wireless mic to shoot videos with my iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd generation). I'm very pleased with this wireless system considering the price and how drastically it improves the quality of audio for our videos.

          I did a test of the range, and there wasn't a noticeable difference in quality from within about 60ft. There is a very slight hiss/fuzz sound, but it is not at all distracting, and it picks up the user's voice loud and clear. Beyond 50-60ft you will gradually hear more of the hiss/fuzz sound the farther the mic goes from the receiver.

          This set works great for shooting youtube videos for our business - product demonstrations, interviews, tours, and more. But it may not be well-suited for an event or presentations if the mic user needs to move more than 50-60 feet from the receiver.

          The lapel clip for the mic has a strong spring - seems like it will hold up over time.

          But I feel like I'm eventually going to break the battery compartment cover - seems pretty cheap.

          All around though, I'm happy with my investment.

          The devices worked great for the first two months, then the hardwire connections going to the battery, and the receiver connectors went bad. I would not recommend buying this product. Invest in a higher end model.

          I love the recording quality, form factor & the low power of this unit, but I frequently run into serious, project-destroying problems with static.

          This may be partially a range issue, since noise happens virtually non-stop when the batteries are not fully charged.

          But it also happens when the subject turns or walks too near the furniture.

            I am using the mic with video shooting and it is working quite well. They are easy to use and light weight. This is a good product for low to mid level video shooting. No bells and whistles; just a good simple wireless mic. They are a perfect addition to YouTube videos and will seriously enhance your video's audio track.

              It turns out that this mic is really vulnerable to interference from the camera while recording. So I have to have someone holding it up and away while shooting. It is also not for long range applications. For me it works no more than 10-15 ft without interference. There is also a bit of a hiss but it isn't too distracting. Not for professional shoots but more hobby stuff.

                    Used during corporate training videos in large rooms filled with noisy production equipment. The A-T Pro 88 enables us to produce clean, clear audio without a lot of the ambient noise, or interference or static interruptions.
                    Will be buying a set for myself when I upgrade to a prosumer camcorder for home.
