Exceeded Expectations, Surprisingly Really Good System
I’ve now had a lot of time using the Alvoxcon Microphone system here and I’m impressed with how well it performed for a dual mic system under $100. To see some of the mic tests, such as how it performs in noisy situations, out of sight, and distance, refer to the attached video.

I actually host a YouTube channel where I review a number of cheaper budget microphone systems. Compared to some of the other mics out there, this is one of the best budget mics I’ve used. The sound is pretty clear, not muffled, and/or too nasally. Every now and then I would encounter some unwanted artifacts in the audio recordings, but at close range, barely ever.
In my line of sight test with this mic, I was able to hear my voice over 200 feet away. Thought the listing on here says that the functional range 80 feet, in my experience, I was able to go way past that mark and still get decent sound in the line of sight. With objects obstructing the line of sight, I wasn’t able to get as good of sound far away from the camera, but it still performed well out of sight at close range.
The feel of the headset on my head is ok, but the sound of the headset is pretty good, and in some situations may have even sounded better than the lapel mic featured with this system. For the most part, when wearing it, it didn’t feel like it was going to fall off my head, even when doing some movements.
I like that this system automatically syncs the channels with the receiver when you change the channel. Another great feature is you can also control the volume on the transmitters. When plugging in the mic cables there is a screw connection that allows you to screw the cable on to the transmitter, locking it in place, protecting it from randomly disconnecting for what ever reason.
The transmitters seem really well built with what feels like a metal body. Overall, I would recommend this system. I have used other mic systems that are hundreds of dollars more and this Alvoxcon system is not too far off in comparison to some of those systems, and in some cases may even be better, but at a much cheaper price.
