    Audio-Technica 830 reviews

    PRO 88W-830 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Wireless System (T68: 171.105 & 171.905 MHz) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No problems so far! This is my first wireless mic purchase for video, and I must say I've been very pleased. My primary application is using this mic for sports commentators. The camera is placed at half field/court and my commentators can be doing play-by-play commentary from anywhere in the area. I've had very minimal trouble with interference, I've actually only heard a slight hiss once and I just moved the antenna and it went away immediately. I use a simple splitter, along with two ATR35s lapels - one clipped to each commentator and it works great - good mix of voice and ambient/crowd noise. No complaints!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constant Feedback - Poor Sound Quality I am not an audio professional though I am tech savvy. I needed a mic to do some simple videos for the internet in a sound proof room in my basement. The mic is about 10 feet away from the receiver. Out of the box I got a ton of feedback through the mic. It sounded horrible and ruined the videos I shot to where I had to reshoot all of them using just the camera's mic.I'm connecting it directly to the camera. I've used both A and B channels. I still get horrible sound. This is frustrating. ... Durability issues: The mic jack is falling apart already and it's barely been used. The coating on the wire is stripping off of the mic cord.I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Audio Without Cords Excellent audio quality. I use it with a Canon HF-200 HD video camera for video interviews. Great isolation from surrounding noise. Comes with all the cords needed to connect to a video camera as well as some velcro strips so you can attached the receiver to a camera or tripod. Even though this is a mono device the output cable uses a stereo mini jack so audio is captured to left and right tracks on stereo gear. Easy to setup and use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wireless Microphone! Great Price! Great microphone for the price. Being for a business, I had to search the internet for the best bang for my buck. The reviews for this mic were very helpful and all were positive. First impression was that the lapel mic itself was very small and flimsy...but after testing it, I was quickly proven wrong. I purchased this to be used in a kitchen setting filming cooking demonstrations. It didn't pick up any signal interference or shirt rustle. Even the cooking utensils didn't interfere with the speech. We also tested the microphone in our large classroom with overhead speakers -- sounded great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good starter Lav unit I wanted to buy a Lav mic but didnt want to spend 500 bucks. So I saw this unit, did some research, and decided to buy for an outdoor shoot around NYC. The unit was pretty easy to set up, just needs some batteries, and its pretty much ready to go. I read some reviews that said they may get some itnerference but for my shoot I had no problems with these, the sound quality was great for the price, and did its job well. I see this as a very good starter unit if you want a Lav mic but don't want to spend alot. (Not sure how durable as I have only had them a short time, but so far so good.)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Lot Of Feedback I'm an independent television producer who needs a second wireless mic for special guests on a cooking show I produce. Our host wears a Seinnheser and I love it... rarely do we have a problem... but I also don't have the budget for another Senheiser. I used this mic and the first show, the first guest, who was only on set for 5 minutes we had a lot of feedback and pops and hisses. I tried both channels and it didn't help. Several more attempt have failed, so after I've written this I'll be looking into B&H's return policy. I also don't like that it takes 9V batteries. Everything else we use takes AA and it would just make like a lot easier to be able to use the same rechargeable batteries on this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellence that's affordable After looking at many different models and being discouraged by most of them, I was finally directed toward the Technica Pro 88W wireless lav and receiver. I was skeptical of the price, after seeing so many other wireless sets often in the $1,000s, but did the research and trusted a close friend's opinion. I snagged it up and used the set in a shoot the weekend I received it in the mail. I couldn't be happier. It has clear reception, ease of use and it's portable and lightweight enough that there were absolutely no troubles using it on the set. My only hesitation from giving this 5 stars is 2 things: the fact that it comes with a mini to mini cable instead of XLR and the cut off for high sounds. I had to buy an additional Mini to XLR cable for my camera, although the price for that cable was substantially less than expected. We were shooting with this unit and our actor did a light scream and it peaked and cut off, taking a few seconds to regain normalcy. I would think if we were only using this for talking and not screaming, it would be perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great performing mic for the buck the sound quality is great for a wireless mic in this price range. I just finished using it 4 the first time at a gig with out any hic cups.It is best to monitor threw your camera's headphone out and not threw the AT trnsmitter's monitor jack.this will limit any sound distortion. Alway control the volume from the camera.
