    Audio-Technica Consumer ATR288W reviews

    ATR288W VHF TwinMic System is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you didn't ask for I must admit, I was very enthusiastic about ordering my Azden Wireless system for my video shoots. Being a small business, I tried to save money and saw that the Azden was in my price range.I read mixed reviews about it at quite a few sites, and B&H was in the same ball park price wise, so I called them with every intention on sounding like I knew exactly what I wanted, and was about to order the Azden,when I decided to humble myself, and ask for some advice from B&H. A young lady from the audio dept. came on and talked me out of Azden and into the Audio-Technica. THANK YOU, THANK YOU whoever you were. This unit is perfect for my needs, built well and works great. I highly recommend it to anyone with a small budget looking for a wireless system, and I highly recommend the staff at B&H. They know their stuff and they back it up. It was even on sale, which made it even cheaper than the one I originally looked at.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional yet could be better It does what I need it to do, mainly capture audio while I am speaking at the front of a room during a seminar to the video camera in the back of the room. However, as others have already noted, if there is anything in between you and the camera such as a wall or solid object the audio degrades and there is a lot of fuzz in the recording. You must have a clear line of site. The only other issue I have is the fact that they did not include a power adapter with the receiver. What good is having the power jack if they don't provide you with the part?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp Sound w/o breaking the bank Was looking for something to record my DIY's and conduct interviews for my site. We cover big events with lots of noise to interviews sitting side by side. In both situation (controlled noise and uncontrolled noise) the handheld mic and clip on worked perfectly. I did have to make sure not to pick up static, but with the ear bud attachment to the transmitter, this made it all possible. Also purchased a mic flag to attached to the mic and it all worked out great. Overall, great price and sweet gear. Will be purchasing more for dual interviewing as it only comes with one receiver and I want more of an interactive chat then a passing of the mic to talk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for to-be professionals Great gear, very cheap and reliable. Be aware, you need to use it with caution. Always have someone operating the camera and monitoring the sound if you dont want to have an headache after the use. The equipment is almost always reliable, but you need to be careful not to apply pressure on any connection and make sure the receiver is well positioned to receive the transmitter signal. If you dont have a budget and want to record videos without worrying with cables and with style, this is a must.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly Useful, Great Value I have used the ATR288W for videos for over a year and a half now. It is a very useful wireless mic system for creating videos for the web. I have used it with Kodak Zi8 and Panasonic GH2 cameras, both of which have female jack inputs for audio, which syncs to the video. The wireless system works beautifully with the included lavalier mic. One tip is to get the lavalier as close to the speakers mouth as possible to minimize hiss.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I have not used this product other than to test it for functionality. Depending on RF interference factors in the area where it is to be used will determine whether or not ths FM-band will be enough or I should move over to a UHF product. Budgetary constraints dictated I get this product. I plan to use it with my DSLR for talking head standups, etc. The two freq channels are a bonus, but if either channel doesn't eliminate RF interferences, then I'm out of luck, so fingers crossed. I can't think of anything bad about this product, Audio Technica has a good reputation for this kind of gear and I've worked professionally with their products for decades and have found them to be of excellent quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great microphone, low price! I bought this mic a few weeks ago, the sound is very clear, no static. Do not hesitate to change the frequency from A to B between the transmitter and the receiver. One could perform better than the other in your environment. Would be five stars but: the devices are a little too big, the batteries doors are difficult to open, hand held microphone produce noise when manipulate. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SOUND This mic is just what I was looking for as a backup. I put it to use when my main mic would not function. It was a windy day and I wraped it in rabbit fur to cut the wind sound. Even with the rabbit fur on it, I was surprised at the clear sound I heard when editing that days shoot. Great for the price and for my use. Might even use it as my main and order another gor backup
