My friend is a professional MC and DJ, and I have photographed weddings during my prior career. There are two brands that consistently are recommended by my vendor contacts: namely, Sennheiser or Shure. However, not everyone can afford the more pricey microphones, and recently, I asked my friend which product he would recommend to someone starting out with MC'ing at weddings. He pointed me to this Tonor-branded set.
First, UHF microphones provide more distance and more available frequencies for use at the venue, minimizing the possibility of interference from other signals. As such, he does not recommend VHF ones. So, how does this set of microphones fare? I asked him before purchasing a set for myself.
PROS - Inexpensive alternative to the Sennheiser/Shure brands - UHF operation for greater distance and number of frequencies - Clear sound with no interference - Decent battery life for half the day. Uses AA - Batteries are replaceable, which is extremely important during important events: always have extra, recharged batteries available to swap with - Windscreens included - Easy to set up - Sturdy material and professional look and feel - LCD screen to show you a variety of information (Frequency, channel, battery level) - 2 year warranty - Expandable to 15 microphones
CONS - Manual could use some work - Not Bluetooth capable, and as such, cannot be used with mobile devices or laptops - No mute button. You'll have to power off/on for privacy
TIPS - Long-press the power button to turn on/off - Double-press the power button to change channels. Be sure to set the other microphone to the same channel too - To use with a karaoke machine, check if it has a 6.35mm audio jack
Overall, this is a great microphone for DJs, MCs, and Karaoke singers. I have personally used it to teach some photography classes, and the booming, deep sound it produces makes me sound a bit more authoritative as the lecturer.

I must say this wireless microphone system is super good. The Microphone system is super easy to set up, basically plug and play. If you have a small church or band this is a great system. I used it in our church and we have been really please with it.
Purchased this system for the backup system in the church. Received the system in time and set up is super easy. The design of the whole system is neat and simple to use. Okay, after 2-3 days of detailed use and study, here comes my honest review. I have used lots of microphones from different brands (Shure, AKG, Sennheiser, Audio-Tech, Behringer, Vocopro). This Tonor wireless system is way better than Vocopro which is designed for Karaoke use, however, besides the wireless convenience, the sound quality (factory tailored EQ) can not be compared to Shure or other big brands. The tone responses mainly focus on low-end bass and need lots of EQ from my mixer console to tailor or adjust to the acceptance of my ear. That being said, it is difficult to cut through the loud backgound music. Just simply compare it to Shure SM58 and you will see a big difference of the OEM tone setting. I believe the microphones are intended for amateur karaoke/entertaining use that people do not care about the EQ. Secondly, I got a loud buzz noise when turning the microphone ON, when 2 Mics are ON, the buzz noise is even louder. I do not have any of this issue of my Shure wireless system. I did use XLR output to connect to my mixer and still got noise. Will have to add a hum/buzz eliminator to improve the situation. For this, I will have to wait and see any feedback/comments of other church members. Update: The customer service of this company is very helpful and active. They reached out to me immediately after I posted my review, so I changed the rating to 4. I bought this system for backup use, so that I know I can not compare this system to other big brands especially for this price range. Again, it all depends on your needs and budget. For me, it's still a good purchase for entertaining use.
Bought it for my personal karaoke systme. The 1st one worked fine but the 2nd microphone (Channel B) won't connect, and the manual does not provide much details on how to setup or trouble shoot. I contacted customer support through Amazon and got a quick response. I followed it and that solved my problem. Overall the sound quality is good, but you need to place the microphone very close to your mouth in order for it to pick up your voice well. See below for the troubleshooting steps from the seller: In this case, would you mind trying again by following the steps as below： Wireless Microphone（B） ID Pairing Steps *First, make sure that the mic with "CHA" displayed on the microphone screen (Mic B) doesn't connect the receiver.* Then you can try following the steps below:
1. Please turn off the receiver first and install the battery into the mic’s battery compartment. 2. Adjust the slide switch ( ② in the picture) to HI first. 3. Long press power button ( ① in the picture) for 15s under shutdown state, until the letter B flashes quickly on the screen, then release the button. (It is important to not release until the letter B flashes quickly, it may take some time) 4. Turn on the receiver and wait (about 1 minute), until “frequency” displays on the LED screen. 5. Please loosen the tail tube, and adjust the slide switch ( ② in the picture) to LO first, then tighten the lower tail tube. The microphone pairing is completed.
I'll try to keep it short. Yes, battery life is questionable so bring batteries. Sound is clear but low on volume plus not as sensitive as a sure mic and on the low side of audio. If you connect it to a mixer, your good. I was able to tune it out plus clear up most if not all of the problems with a mixer mic input with phantom power and EQ settings. If your PA has the same settings, your good as well. If no EQ settings or very limited settings, you'll mostly just be dealing with the low side of the audio problem. Good sound processor should help greatly with limited EQ settings. The range is fine in a big open room but loses signal with walls and other signals. (Coming from a bar environment) Still good though without the signal breaking or cutting out but I'd say keep it to about 100ft. Now the question is how long it will last. Time will tell. Hope this helps.
This is my initial review after testing for a short while. I will update after a few months if anything changes.
Getting it up and running was simple. It took longer to find AA batteries than to turn it on and get it connected.
I tried it with both an active speaker with the included quarter inch cable and with a mixer using two XLR cables. There was a lot of handling noise which surprised me considering some of the other reviews stating they were quiet. I played some karaoke tracks and tested with talking and singing. The sound quality was better than expected for a wireless mic pair in this price range. They don't compete with my more expensive wired mics but if they did I would be worried.
They are a little boomy but I tweaked the EQ and it evened right out.
I tested the range and couldn't get it to drop out as far as I could reasonably go with it. I didn't get 200 feet out but close enough to say I wouldn't have a problem with any use I would put it to. I'll just be using them to run karaoke in a couple of small bars because I'm tired of taking my nice wired mics. I'll be testing them for a few months before I start it back up.
Overall they're pretty good. If I can figure out how to mitigate the handling noise I'll update it to 5 stars.
The sound is good coming out of these mics but the range is yet something to be desired especially from a UHF signal. They claim to be clear and on point over 100 feet and up to 300 feet I've read somewhere else but they definitely cut out after 50 feet. Great for right around the receiver but these lil guys start to lose signal at about 50 feet. I've tried in many different venues both outside and in and its been about the same. Also, you do get a distortion level much higher than the big boys. Can't shout and really have a high level of speech going into these mics without distorting. Too bad you couldn't lower the gain from within the mic itself like other models. That's where the problem is.
Other than that, they feel good, have a great screen on each mic as well as the receiver, the don't eat battery power so my rechargables last up to 2 whole gigs and the receiver is sleek with built in antennas. really is useful at an event when a 2nd mic is needed for speech only.. I wouldn't use these for singing at all.
These mics feel and sound wonderful comparing go the mic that came with my Ply karaoke system. Ply mic gives off terrible feedback. These mics did not even when i had them next to the system. I love sound balance. It is of great quality. I would give them 5 stars but mine came with no mic covers, contrary to the promise shown on the ad or on the box. Also the ad showing 2 mics standing on the receiver is somewhat misrepresenting. I do not recommend standing them on the receiver. Other than that i thought it was a decent buy.
I have a small studio for jam sessions, I cant stand tripping on cords, this does do the job. The quality of the sound is very good, but the volume is not there. You can get as loud as a lined mic if you sing right on top of it. I dont mind that if it gets the wires out of the way. I can sing right on it, no problem. Other than that they work great, no buzz or hiss on PA.
I love this setup wireless microphone. so far, I don't have any problem with connection (turn on and working instant) or sound. When you adjust the channels on the microphone, its automatic adjust the receiver which is awesome. I haven't tested the distant of the microphone range yet but as of as of now, I don't need too. I wouldn't hesitant to buy again and highly recommend for anyone that needed!
