      I am using 2 of these in an audio bag mixed with an me-66 mic on a boom pole. The wireless packs pick up audio fantastically and tuned lower than the boom pick up a lot of vocals with no interference. I run them on separate frequencies so there is no cross over. Understand that these are omni mics so they do pick up background noise but overall I have had a lot of quality shoots using these. They are extremely lightweight, the heaviest portion being the 9 volt battery. Power consumption is minimal with a full day of shooting, however I still power down when there is a long break between scenes. I have only used them at a 0-100' range so I cannot remark on their full range but at 100' I have not encountered any signal loss. Overall for the price I highly recommend this set up for recording on a budget. As always B&H is fantastic for delivery and customer service, keep up the great work.

      If you don't have to move the receiver around at all, then the sound is fine, but if that is the case you probably don't need a wireless lav. There were several times when it was slightly moved, and only 5 feet from the subject with the mic, and the audio had so much static it was unusable. This is VHF and from what I know, UHF is the way to go for wireless lavs. It also doesn't feel very sturdy

      The price and sound quality are useable, but you get what you pay for. You will encounter interference, especially if you are in city areas. I picked up police radio feeds.

          Under the right conditions its a great bang for your buck. Had to line directly into the camera because it does not come compatible with the H4N Zoom recorder I was using. Quality of sound was impressive for an outdoor windy day shoot. Unidirectional audio can pickup some unwanted background, should the mic be facing the source.

              For the price point, you can't really go wrong with the Audio-Technica PRO 88W-829. Not as good as wired mics at similar price point, but for when you need wireless this will do the trick.

              I'm a freelancer journalist and I use this for recording interviews. Some times you may get some interference, but it's nothing turning off all electronic devices or going somewhere else won´t fix.

              The only con I see is that it uses too many small parts and if you lose one of those, replacements are not easy to find, unless you call the manufacturer.

                  Great mic for the price! Worked very well for the two weddings I just covered. Yes you get better quality with the expensive mic systems but for someone who on occasion needs to wirelessly grab some audio it works great! The range is a bit of an issue for outdoor use but really wasn't an issue.

                  For the price this wireless mic seems to be a great buy. For the short distances that is has been used in, the signal is strong and sounds good. I've spent a lot more money for other wireless mics and this one stands up to all of them.

                        I purchased this wireless lavalier system for video recording ballroom dance lessons. Because of the music playing in the ballroom it was hard to impossible to hear what the instructor was saying on the video. This system has made it easy to put a lavalier mic on the instructor, and have the video camera some distance away. Since the music is essentially ambient noise it is dramatically reduced in volume on the recording and the instructor comes through loud and clear. The sound quality is very good. I've used the system with both a Sony NEX7 and also with my iPhone 4S using a special adapter cable. I'm completely satisfied with the purchase.

Range is good, it's quite, and clear. Simple set up, easy to mount. Great deal if your looking for a simple wireless lapel mic. Sounded great on my video, buying another!

                            I purchased this for my startup video company. We needed a wireless lav system but we didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. After my initial testing with the unit I am very pleased. The mic picks up the speaker with great clarity and very little interference. Line of site and range were a little low but that is expected with a device at this price range. Overall I think that this system was the most bang for my buck.

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

                              I use the wireless with my Canon camcorder to do quick PR interviews and training videos. So far, I have only completed two videos and it appears to work rather well.

                              I wanted an good, entry level wireless to work with a few projects I have coming up. If the concept works I will upgrade, but for now I am very happy with my purchase. Even if I upgrade, I will still throw this in the bag to use on family and special events.

                              I checked my local area to make sure the frequency I ordered did not interfere with other signals in my area. The product is clear and clean and not what you would expect for this low price end piece of equipment.

                              Easy set up, worked the first time. No complaints, except the clip on the receiver for the camera does not fit a "mini" shoe.
