    Audio-Technica Pro 88W reviews

    PRO 88W-830 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Pro 88W VHF Wireless System is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value, good performance I use this wireless mic with my Sony HVR-A1U with good results with the talent fairly close to the camera. It works very well up to at least 50 feet. I have used it at distances up to about 150 feet, but it works at those distances only in a sweet spot--moving causes the signal to fade in and out. It's best to avoid moving the plug from the mic to the transmitter around--it can cause scratchy noise. All in all a good price/performance ratio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as great the second time around I had purchased this unit a year ago for on camera talkng head audio. It has been a reliable workhorse for the price. The audio quality is a good as any unit I have used. A few times I have wished to have two folks live or the interviewer and interviewer so I've purchased a second set with a different frequency. It's worth mentioning that I have been previously able to get good audio from the person wearing the unit and those standing nearby.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything it's supposed to I got this to use with my Canon 5D Mark II when recording video interviews. It works really well. I've tried it with the transmitter and receiver separated by up to 45 feet away and gotten really good sound quality--little or no hiss, and no interference problems. Well worth the price. There are other models with different microphones; don't know how these compare. Thanks to B&H for recommending it--I'd buy it again for sure.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay I use the mic to do short range filming. The only problem is that when the talent has it on his back and the reciever is not in line of sight it makes a static noise. Usually its good, but sometimes it gets static, and I have to reshoot. Not that fun.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally good I've owned the Audio Technica Pro 88W for five months and used it in a wide variety of professional videography applications. Here are a few important things I've noticed: 1. It works very well within twenty feet of your subject, provided that you have a clear view of that person. In other words it doesn't work well around corners, or even with other people standing between you and your subject. 2. It does not function well at all in a busy convention center atmosphere. I just returned from a convention in Orlando where there were as many as fifty other wireless systems being used, and the Pro 88W system was almost completely useless. I had to resort to running a 12' cable to my spokemodel's microphone. Having more than just two channels may have helped this situation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good System...limited durability Cost was a big factor; I needed to keep cost down for our online training video production budget. I had borrowed one of these earlier from a colleague, and used it quite a bit. But something happened to the mic cable internal wiring when used in an action sequence. Still, I bought two more, as they are fairly inexpensive. Audio quality is fine; some interviews we do via a Canon 7D and coupling this mic with a BeachTek adapter produces much better audio -- and easier to edit -- than the H1N1.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance -- Low Cost Used this in a 2-day shoot -- excellent sound & reception. Easy to use. B&h recommended it to me -- & I am very pleased. There is a very slight buzz in the sound which I removed easily with my sound software. I will buy another one for a 2-person shoot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Lav System for the Budget Minded I needed to get some lavs quickly without spending a fortune and after researching, settled on these. The sound quality is quite good and they work reliably up to about 50 ft. After that, they tend to be prone to dropout or static depending on where you have placed the transmitter on the actor. They are plastic so not the most rugged but in a pinch, these have worked out great.
