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 ME 2 Lavalier Mic - A (516-558 MHz):

          I purchased a cheaper wireless mic system and it wasn't worth the trouble and investment. Way too much hiss. B & H quickly gave me a full dollar amount exchange and I purchased this Sennheiser unit instead. I'm glad I did! I use it mostly on a Canon DSLR for video recording purposes. This mic is easy to use. (Note: I hate owner's manuals so I went to Youtube and viewed several videos on the set-up of this system. They were very helpful and easy to understand). This mic is easily adjustable to get the very best sound out of a DSLR. I am very happy so far!

          Two things though. I got burned on my first recording because the "Mute" switch was inadvertently pushed to the Mute position. I was recording with a GoPro at the time so I couldn't monitor the audio. I've since learned you can look at the "meters" on the unit to see if you have good reception and a good incoming level. The second thing is: I have used these during my days as an ENG photographer. They have always come through for me on the job, BUT, the microphone cable that comes with it can break. Be careful when you are through using it. Don't wrap the cord tightly around the units. (Reporters were famous for this.) Find a way to gently stash the cord in a safe place and you'll get a lot of use out of the cords.

          Back in my news days, either the TX or RX would get dropped on the floor eventually, but they always seemed to work. I just wish the mic cable was beefier.

              Setup and use of the Sennheiser wireless mic system was simple. The quality of recording is stellar. No changes in signal strength were noted to 50 yards -- and fieled tested the system to two hundred yards for kicks -- no changes in audio were noted.

                  So easy to set up and for a novice like me who just wants stuff to work without being engulfed in a manual for hours. I would HIGHLY recommend using the ew 112-p G3 wireless microphone system from Sennheiser. It's worth the price because of its quality.

                      I use this set up with my Canon 5D MKIII. Sits on the hot shoe and easily plugs in to the audio port of the camera.The second unit with the mic is just as easily set up.
                      I had never used these before but figured it out very quickly.You don't have to be a tech savvy person ,to much.Great quality sound. Worth the investment.
                      No "cons" at all,just "pro's"

                            This is a great sounding system when it works. I have two G3 systems and experience dropouts or hits on both of them far too often to be relied upon. I scan for open frequencies and everything else you're supposed to do but I still get drop outs. I'm perplexed that these get such glowing reviews. Maybe I got a bad batch?

                                Have used these for years. Just bought my 4th unit. First 3 still working great. Batteries last all day. Mic cable quality has decreased over the years.

                                The transmitter and receiver have many frequencies to send/receive with should you pick up interference or have muliple mics set up. Audio quality is great. Setup is easy and menus only took a few minutes to get used to. Looks as professional as it sounds.

                                I would spend the extra 200-300 dollars on these mics and save the headache of using any other units. I often use two sets of these 112's with a Zoom H4 recorder and get great sound quality. for single shot set up's when I have a fast turn around I plug them directly into my sony a7,ayrii, and a6000 and the audio transfers seamlessly.

                                We've been using G3's in our studio and field productions for years. We've never had an issue with a unit failing. Only downside if I had to pick one would be the battery life. We have some Sony's as spares that are worse, but you definitely need to keep backup batteries handy.
