        Comments about Toa Electronics ER-1000 Personal Public Address System:

        Went I first got it, I was sure I put the batteries in firmly, but it wouldn't turn on. I removed the batteries, put them in again, and THEN it turned on. Still don't know why. The waistband is comfortable, but the headset is awkward to wear. The strap is too small, apparently made for people with a smaller head than mine. I have to wear it at a different angle than suggested and not use the strap, but it rests securely enough on my ears anyway. The speaker works great **as long as you don't bend over to look at the speaker** while you're using it. If you do, it makes a loud feedback noise until you get your head back up. It takes practice to remember to keep your chin up and manipulate the button and volume knob without looking down.

          Comments about Toa Electronics ER-1000 Personal Public Address System:

          We use the ER-1000 for tours and outdoor workshops. They are easy to use and the sound is as good as the other portable PA systems we have used. The ER-1000 runs on AA batteries that are easy to replace versus our rechargeable PA systems if the battery runs down. This unit is lighter weight and straps around your waist, which is convenient if the lecturer/speaker is moving around. Although I like wireless mics, they do not always work flawlessly if you go to different locales, so the wired mic is more dependable. Our speakers bureau liked them so much, I had to order 6 more.

          Comments about Toa Electronics ER-1000 Personal Public Address System:

          This an OK portable PA system with some weaknesses:
          There is no feedback protection so you cannot really go to the maximum volume. The sound is a bit too high pitch; not enough mids and lows; for that price one could have hoped for a better speaker-driver.
          On the up side, the main unit and headset are sturdy and well designed.

          In conclusion, with better sound and feedback protection this unit would be a winner and worth the price asked.

            The sound is good, however if you recline yourself it makes a terrible sound
            It is not very comfortable to wear both the unit and the mic
            It has an old retro look that I did not like,
            Since it was a relatively expensive product in its genere, I fee that it is not a good value for money
