To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This thing works great and the sound quality is much better than expected for a wireless mic at this price. Very easy to set up and use and the range for me has been more than 40 feet. I haven't found the max range yet.
My only complaint is that the power buttons are on the surface of both the transmitter and receiver, and they are easily pressed on by accident. I've found the devices on several time when I open my camera bag from just being pressed against the side of the bag during transit. I found a small plastic case to store the receiver in because it is the worst for doing this. I suggest the manufacturer recess the power buttons, or make them a little harder to power on by accident.
The Alvoxcon is an amazing system under $50. My wife, who has been featured on the cover of Women’s Health Magazine, is a certified personal trainer and hosts online workouts for her social media followers. We just used the Alvoxcon system to shoot her new Unbreakable Core videos today and it worked flawlessly. The set-up couldn’t be easier since you just turn on the receiver, turn on the wireless unit and they sync together in 1-2 seconds. I had to give this 5 stars. I gave the performance rating 4 stars because honestly, the sound quality was good, but not great. Having said that, you’d need to spend closer to $100-$150 to get a system that will sound better. If you’re looking for the wireless mic system “Best Buy of 2019”, here it is.
Records sound great and has decent range, but terrible hissing or static is present, nothing works to reduce that, changing channels or Hz
(EDIT) I was contacted by Panvotech agent. Was asked if I wanted to be sent a new device free of charge and didn't even need to send the old one back, in exchange for deleting my review. I replied that, IF they do indeed send me a new device, I will check it out, and will edit my review. My old device model is: Transmitter, TG-2. Receiver, CK-210
New device arrived, I cheeked it out. The Transmitter module seems to be the same model TG-2 however the Receiver (one that goes onto the camera) is a model CK-210-G. I recorded a few videos. There is still little bit of hissing, but its VERY little, Im willing to live with that for the price.
I tried to record on my old microphone module, the hissing is still there when i mix the old model with the new.
I'm a voiceover artist, and I produce a lot of videos to promote my service. The video here is the opening segment to my latest demo that features clips from some of my work. I'm only including the part that I recorded with the lapel mic. Not too bad for an inexpensive lavalier microphone system!
Overall, I'm impressed with how well this has worked. Can't speak to longevity yet, but the combination of the hotshoe cradle plus adapter means I can use my DLSR for great video with accompanying audio. For the money, to have a lavalier mic I can use is absolutely fantastic. Using a real post editing tool or even iMovies makes it easy to get rid of the hiss for clear sound.
What I liked the most is that it’s very compact and easy to use. Wireless distance from camera is good, tested it about 40 feet away with no issue. Sound quality is not the best though, but is good. But for the price actually is quite a good purchase. If you are looking for something that works, cost effective and wireless this is it. If you want more sound quality and are willing to invest more you should go for that.
Works fine. Glad someone reviewed it before and said to plug it in after you've opened the camera to record. That's the trick. Sound is a tiny bit tinny...but aside from that, it works well for iPhone recordings.
