This is a nice unit for it's size and simple to use. If you can deal with a constant hissing sound in your video, it's great. Not for professional use. *** Update! I contacted the seller via email about the problem and requested some solution. I had not needed the mic until this past week, so I had no idea of the problem with the hissing sound. I saw that the window to return the item has past by six days (my mistake). I found it to be a huge disappointment that the seller ignored my email request to find a suitable resolution to the problem. Even though he may not have accepted a return, they could have at least responded to the email. BUYER BEWARE OF THIS SELLER. Customer service is lacking. (If the seller has taken ill with the current virus problem and is too sick to respond to email inquiries, my apologies for my candor and I wish them well.)
I had high hopes for the product given the good reviews. The quality of my voice when recording sounds fine but there is so much static background noise that makes the product undesirable. The static noise is very distracting and overpowers any good the mic may do for your own voice compared to using an on board camera mic. I tried different channels and other strategies to try and remedy the issue. Nothing helped. I ended up returning the product as it does not meet my needs.
I was pretty bummed with this mic. I used it with my iPhone (I tried it was an iPhone 7 and iPhone 11) and attempted to use it with my DSLR and there was a background hiss with all three. The hiss with the DSLR was way worse (later research told me that I needed to find a mic with a 20DB boost for the DSLR and this doesn't have it). I ended up just giving it to a friend, since he plays background music in his videos and has the ability to edit the hiss out.
I needed a small mic for my lectures and workshops. But this unit has very poor sound quality, even with volume on the amp turned all the way up, it doesn't sound very loud, and the lapel mic can barely be heard. Also the battery runs out very quickly and has to be recharged all the time. You can't just slip in another battery, you have to go plug it in.
Completely my fault as I did not identify the fine small print about it not being able to work with Facebook Live which was the reason why I bought this system. I wish the page would have made it more identifiable but it is one of those things where you have to read every single word on the page since there are sooooo many nuances with cheap products like this. Works great on regular videos but live streaming on Facebook, FORGRET ABOUT IT!!! Not happy as I wasted $40.
While this mic is quite easy to use, there is a noticeable hiss in the background. I contacted the company who graciously sent both another lapel mic as well as an entire new system, however I've tried every combination possible between the various components and the sound quality is the same. While overall it works well and is easy to use, I am very disappointed with the sound quality as my intention is to create online instructional content for sale and I feel the sound would not only be a distraction but also appear unprofessional.
I really regret that I let the return window close for this product before I realized how unusable it was. The sound from the microphone is so noisy. I can barely hear myself even though I’m recording in a quiet room with no appliances running. Also, the connection Jack is some weird proprietary screw-in type, so I can’t get another lapel mic to see if I can get something useful out of the receiver, which is admittedly, a pretty cool idea at its price point. My advice? Buy a $10 lav mic that plugs directly into the phone and film up close. Either that, or spend $200+ on something more professional. I regret buying this. Everything I record sounds like I had a broken radio playing in the background.
Extremely high self noise. The audio as recorded into a Sony A7 ii was sooo noisy it's effectively unusable. It also disconnected during two separate sessions within less than 10 ft of distance. I was not expecting a perfect microphone but this was a complete disappointment.
There is a very clearly Audible hum in the unit. I used two different ones and they both had it. For something that is dedicated for clear audio this is a huge issue. Side note: the range was only about 15 feet before you started getting clipping usable for close interviews (what I wanted it for) but for anything else the clipping would be a real issue.
