    Audio-Technica Pro 88W reviews

    PRO 88W-830 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Pro 88W VHF Wireless System is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a $600 wireless mic, but... I used the mic with my consumer camera to record a dialog and procedure between a client and a patient. I normally us a $600 mic system but did not have access to the more expensive unit at the time. The Pro88W worked perfectly for what I needed. The sound was good and it picked up both people even over a lot of background noise. The quality of the mic and cord construction is poor and I expect to need to replace it in the near future but it will serve for now. I was only about 12ft. away and the pick up was good with no interference from the electronic equipment in the room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from work great for the price Bottom line: you can spend $2000 on your high-quality UHF radio mics and when you give them to 85 undergraduates, they will get broken just as easily as my $200 VHF mics. There is hardly any difference in sound quality and interference in minimal, especially if you are fairly close to the camera/receiver, like you would be in a typical interview situation. I've used them for years and have had no problems (except, of course, when they get broken!). But then, they're reasonably priced, so I could get another one (or two).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Impressed I've used this Mic system for weddings and a few interviews and it has failed me too often to where I can no longer trust it. I shot a wedding with it and I got interference from the wireless hand held the officiant was using. Anytime the subject was more than 1 foot away I would get static, even during a basic sit down interview. Out of the 5 or 6 times I've used this mike it's gotten clean sound once. The sound quality is pretty good, I'll give it that but it's constantly giving me static. I shot a wedding and thankfully I instructed the groom on how to shut the mike off because the instant the priest turned on his mike I had feedback coming though church speakers to where it disrupted the ceremony. It should be a crime to sell this product as a wireless mike system.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the Price I use the Pro 88W Lavs for general corporate talking head shoots. For the money they provide big bang for little buck. The range and quality are on par with the manufacturers specs. They even work great in pairs with no blead or squelch when in close proximity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pro-sumer mic I get excellent sound quality, and very little background noise with this Mic. I have used this mic with various clients before and it has always worked out great. I recommend this Mic for anyone who is a freelance videographer on a budget. *Heads UP: When you have it plugged in with the earpiece you will notice it's very loud and you hear a lot of static. But don't worry! Once you import it into your computer, the audio is crystal clear. It's just that the volume on the earpiece is turned way up.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good. . .for the price Overall, they work for what they say, but there are a few negatives. They do crackle a little bit. Also, there is no battery indicator which is really frustrating because you never know how much more juice that battery has. Also, there is no volume control for the input to the camera and no volume control for the headphone so be prepared for your ear to be blown out. But they are really simple to use and get the job done. I've actually got better sound quality on these than with a wired mircrophone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound Purchased the Lavalier mic System for my child film maker. I have used the system several times for short auditions. Sufficent range for indoor work and the sound quality on the camcorder tape was excellant.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems Fine--as long as there is no noise You can only switch between two channels on these, so if there's noise on one, you only have the other. I also noticed it was picking up a lot of camera, zoom motor noise, but this may have to do with the 3.5mm to XLR output cable I got for it. My XLR inputs are fine for my shotgun mics, but this one cable generates a lot of noise--unless its some sort of frequency interference with the lav receiver I have mounted on my ag-dvx100b
