Simply awesome! Buy these cordless mics if you want clear reliable sound EVERYTIME! I am a wedding and events videographer and cannot live without these. I own 2 pair + and extra lav for them... Do not go out and buy cheap cordless mics for under $200, unless you just plan on using them to play with the kids in the backyard... You will eventually only end up buying these mics anyway... These mics are nicely priced for the amount of quality you are getting, so buck up!>>> My personal tip of the day... If you buy "CHEAP" >>> You buy "TWICE!" >>> REMEMBER THAT!

I use this product (sometimes multiples) in news gathering situations. Sennheiser makes great quality products overall, but I have never been fully satisfied with this system. When it is working, everything is set correctly, and you are in the right environment, the sound quality can be excellent. For my use, which is frequently recording active subjects while utilizing active camera movements, I regularly have issues with popping and cracking coming through in my audio. It may just be that I'm using this setup for something it isn't fully intended for, but I wish the cables/connections would hold up to a bit more movement before disrupting audio. For me, it is normally more on the XLR to receiver pack end of things than on the Mic to transmitter side that I have issues. I have tried numerous mounting points/devices, but am yet to find one that fully eliminates my issues. Also, the microphone in this set is not good in windy environments, so I would highly recommend an aftermarket pop filter/windscreen to alleviate any issues. With that being said, in normal interview shooting conditions and with minimal movement, this can be a great setup.

    Comments about Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 Camera Mount Wireless Microphone System with ME2 Lavalier Mic - A (516-558 MHz):

    The construction of the transmitter and receiver are very solid. I tested the reception through the office and found that it didn't cut out or drop for 50+ feet through walls. My old wireless system was not as clear and strong for reception. Definitely an upgrade! The mic that comes with it sounds good.

          I shoot and edit videos for a private school in Alabama. In the past, these were simply recorded using the on camera (or even on iPhone) microphone, which produced some very mediocre sounding videos. This mic has really improved the sound of our videos and gives them a more professional quality. It's easy to setup, though it may have a steep learning curve on dealing with some of the more nuanced features. Overall, a great microphone.

            The G3 delivers a very good product for it's price. It surely has it's problems, but for begginers sound guys this kit is simply perfect, delivering professional audio quality and also great built quality. Besides that, you gotta be close to the transmitter as it's range is one of the biggest problems of the product. Sometimes it surprises me though. We did a shooting at a brazilian "favela" in a very small street full of constructions and the talent was like 700 or 800 ft away from receiver: we had no issues with the sound. It was amazing, but also a really lucky event.

              I have three of these mics. I use them for Wedding Videography. Never had an issue. They are solid, get good signal, and the audio sounds terrific! If you shoot in a lot of windy conditions I would definitely invest in a Furry Wind Muffler (something with hair all over it) to knock down the wind.

              I also own a pair of UHF Azden wireless mics. I bought them to save a buck and I regret it. They are garbage.

                I needed a replacement wireless microphone system for a wedding shoot and after some research, chose the Sennheiser ew 112-p system. It worked perfectly, picking up the ceremony audio cleanly and crisply. So glad I made the purchase from B & H. It arrived a day earlier than stated, which gave me extra time to learn the very intuitive operation of the system.

                    I use this wireless mainly for on-site applications. The ease of use is good, and the sync function makes it easy to make sure both mics
                    on the same frequency. I would easily buy another!

                      We got these just in time to film our year end recap. The set up was easy and the recording quality was great. These cut down my post production time in half because the audio was so clear.

                        I mainly work in post production, but have been doing more production shoots lately and use these lavs often. For budget shoots or interviews, these seem to be the standard. They are great in the right environment. I've found that to avoid pops and clicks, you have to watch your range, but with movement you may still get some pops. The microphone itself isn't bad, not great, but not bad. Luckily there are a few aftermarket mics that are compatible with the transmitter.

                            Haven't used these yet on my upcoming production in a couple of weeks, but have done quite a bit of testing and they work wonderfully. From my research, I read that the ME-2 mic that comes with it isn't stellar, but I haven't tested it yet. I ordered a TRAM-50 wired for use with the G3 to use instead, and it is working wonderfully so far. Excellent sound quality and the range is good. Built like a tank.

                              Comments about Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 Camera Mount Wireless Microphone System with ME2 Lavalier Mic - A (516-558 MHz):

                              There are better wireless mics out there, but they give slightly better sound quality for a lot more money. For now, I am really happy with my sennheisers. This is my third set of wireless lavaliers, and I get dropouts extremely rarely, and the mics have so far have performed fine in adverse conditions. Sennheiser also has a great repair policy and I'm very impressed with them as a company.
                              If they came out with a digital wireless lav, and it was on par or less than the others, I would buy it in a second. I hope they will.

                                  We replaced 2 Sennheiser G1 kits with these and WOW, much better sound quality, less background noise, and easier to use. Wish I hadn't waited so long.

                                    After being tasked with creating marketing videos for our production company I found a need for a microphone that would capture the talents voice clearly while minimising the ambient noise from our production floor. The ew 112-p does an excellent job. I have the 112-p connected to a ZOOM H4N with a reduntant connetion to my Canon 7d. We just purchased our second ew 112-p and plan on at least one more.

                                      Very good sound, easy to use, and great range. This system was purchased to do interviews with my Nikon DSLR. I got them out of the box put the batteries in and plugged them into my Nikon. They worked perfect and have great sound.

                                        Sennheiser offers crisp vocal reproduction. It really carries vocal articulation well. It is not as warm as SHURE, but it sounds less muddled. These are durable units. I have had several G2 units running for 10 years and they show no signs of failing. We purchased a G3 unit to have an additional backup. The G3 have lots of channels and presets. I can always fine a frequency to tune to even though I'm running up to 10 additional units in its block. It's also a testament to durability when I tell you that I work with High School Kids. I prefer the Rack mounted units for live performance as they have 2 antenae that I can put into a powered multi-coupler and extend the range. But sometimes a portable unit is handy and as long as the line of sight is good, you will have no problems.
