        We needed an cheap solution for a children's performance, using wireless headset mics.
        We took a chance on six of these wireless headset systems, being sure to set the units at least two channels apart and... Perfection!

        Great choice for the event, we are very happy!

        Comments about Gemini UHF-116HL Wireless Head-worn & Lavalier Microphone System:

        I am using this product for a presentation. It was easy to set up. And simple to use. So simple didn't even have to read instructions. Only comment I have is that the specs do not indicate if it comes with a powercord or audio cord. Ended up purchasing an audio cord when I didn't need to.

          Comments about Gemini UHF-116HL Wireless Head-worn & Lavalier Microphone System:

          Previous generation of Gemini wireless mic is single mic UM-16/UB-16, single receiver UX-16; and that system had a powerful audio output to be used as line-input to the amplifier, and the sound quality was good. This newer UHF-116 or UHF-216 system is weaker in performance, both in built and sound quality, wireless-frequency and audio-frequency performance. Now you need a 1/4" to XLR cable to connect the receiver to the amplifier as mic-input instead of line-input, and the sound quality generally is not as good as the previous UX-16 system. If you know what you are doing, you should have no problem.

            Used in a fitness center for Zumba and other classes. No feedback unless you really crank the volume on the amplifier. Wireless has good range. Sound quality is very good. Comfortable fit for instructor.

            Very low cost. Used for a parade commentary. Need to put the mike too close to mouth.

            Ultimate Flexibility and Clarity

            Comments about Gemini UHF-116HL Wireless Head-worn & Lavalier Microphone System:

            The Dundee SportsDome is the largest indoor ReBall™ (reusable paintball) Arena in North America. Every month we run a tournament under the MIPL brand for players of multiple skill levels. We video tape the whole event and then make promotional material to excite our customers until the next event.

            This wireless system by Gemini has greatly improved our post production and reduced the turnaround time of our videos. During the event, the action can be filmed and commentated on simultaneously. This has the added benefit of reducing costs. Our scorekeeper also commentates while connected locally to our audio equipment. The audio mix is output at the same time to an MP3 player which records the whole thing so once our event if complete, we have plenty of content for voice-overs to keep the video fresh and informative.

            Gemini's build quality is good. The Lavalier Mic head piece is made out of tough material, and its cord screws into the wireless unit to insure it doesn't come out during use. The belt clip seems like it was an afterthought, though this was no problem for me as I have many pockets and such in which to hold all of my AV goodies. The base station is easy to operate, along with changing channels or volume. Our volume control button was installed upside down, and though this is an aesthetic nuisance, the audio quality more then makes up for it sounding better than our locally connected mic. Battery life is hard to gauge at this point but was more than capable to run two 6hour events with no degradation.
            Our facility is 400' long (open space) and with the base station in the middle it granted us complete coverage with no degradation of signal.

            Get creative, there's so many tools such as the UHF-116HL Wireless Microphone System by Gemini that B&H has to offer. With a bit of imagination, let them help you take your production to the next level.
