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.

Got this to live stream some TED style talks for an external mic to our Mevo units. Works like a charm, easy to set up. Client had the same mic and we set them both up for their Mevo as well.

Comments about Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 Camera-Mount Wireless Microphone System with ME 2 Lavalier Mic - A (516-558 MHz):

I had the previous version of this mic system for 8 years. Holds up pretty well. Used it on a shoot last week and had some audio issues, but that might have been operator error. Overall happy with the sound quality, but it is fragile and needs to be stored well. The connections also need to be tight, otherwise you hear strange audio blips.

Buy these and not the cheaper ones....

By Brian Indy

Comments about Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 Camera-Mount Wireless Microphone System with ME 2 Lavalier Mic - A (516-558 MHz):

I've used the g3 series at my tv station for quite some time and when I needed a set for my own, I decided to save $200 and go with the g3's competition. They sounded great but they were bulky and made entirely of plastic and I knew they wouldn't stand up to professional use. I returned them for the g3 series and I am so happy that I did. Small, metal frame, great sound. Not to mention this mic came with a $100 bh gift card and free custom fitted skb case which are awesome. These mics are professional, plain and simply. You could save some money going with another brand but they won't last...

          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 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.
