The whole SlingStudio system is 5 stars. I'm docking the CameraLink because for no good reason that I can figure out it uses the obscure micro HDMI connector. It's very inconvenient. And the unit only comes with a micro to Mini HDMI cable. Very strange choice in my opinion. On the other hand the ability to use a 5 volt micro USB connector to charge it or to provide backup power is very convenient.

I have been looking at different options for years to stream video up to my Youtube channel (All required physical cabling). Once I saw the SlingStudio system come out I bought it right away. Has worked great with out any problems. Has great quality. Learned the system in minutes. Updates/upgrades happen over the internet via the MySlingStudio application. I would (and have) recommended that people buy this solution.

Superb Product from Sling they make Vidiu and Live Shell look like they are not trying. My first streaming affair was a funeral and boy did this perform. It was so easy my 16 year old granddaughter mastered it a two hours and everything went flawless. The quality is exceptional whichever is used. The recording to SD card or hard drive flawless and great quality. I must say I am so happy they do not charge for the software like Teradek it is FREE which I think is great after spending $1500.00 for the equipment plus the camera link and C- adapter. Don't know why these guys took so long to do this but I guess good things come to those who wait. Had to borrow the money to purchase this but it was well worth it.If you are into live streaming , broadcasting on the road this is the product to buy. The WiFi which on the others are very iffy Sling is perfect, if you are losing bandwidth it tells you and you can reduce it without going off air.....exceptional. Even when I use my iPhone the quality is so good you may think it's a regular video camera. So much more to say so little time. Great product Sling you have done it...much thanks

Sling Studio is almost the perfect product to handle all your live streaming needs. The product is well thoughtout, and future upgrades would crush the competition if they can incorporate what is already available from other competitors in the Sling Studio.Examples:1. The device should be able to control the remote cameras (iPod, iPhone, iPad) like zoom-in, zoom-out which is available on Switcher Studio. This would be nice to have.2. 3 or more HDMI in ports on the Base Station like the ones available on the Cerevo Livewedge which gives you 4 options to go wireless (with wireless extenders) or hard wired for greater reliability - I spent too much money to have to buy a switcher - for my switcher to use hard wired cameras.3. I shouldn't have to spend $300-$400 extra on a wireless adapter to show a PowerPoint when my PC is right next to the Studio Base if I have the Main Camera already plugged into the only HDMI port.3. ChromaKey capability which is available on the Cerevo Livewedge or full motion overlays, Sling makes it easy to add clean professional overlays but motion overlays would be nice.4. Separate the requirement that if the iPad goes down the livestream also stops. This is not an issue with Livewedge, because the built in encoder can operate independent of the iPad in case of iPad failure or hotspot failure during mid-stream.Sling studio does combine the best features of Mevo, Livewedge, Switcher Studio and Roland switchers into one product, which makes it almost perfect. I sold my LiveWedge for the SlingStudio because of the remote camera option to use iPads and iPhones as free add-on cameras. However, if I have to pay close to $400 dollars extra to show a PowerPoint from the Switcher I might have to sell this too.**Update**Unit is already dead after one day of use. The WiFi card seems to have burned out and the unit is useless without the IPad. The customer service is the best on the market and is sending me a replacement. I didn't get the overnight service that another reviewer received so until the 5-7 day replacement comes from SlingStudio, I will have to tell our sick and shut in to wait until we post a recorded service instead of participating with the congregation live.***Update***The SlingStudio Customer support is fantastic. They have support hours for 8am-8pm PST so people on East Coast can usually reach them when needed. They shipped a replacement unit within 3 days of my request, and sent a free return shipment box even though it was purchased on Amazon and not with Sling. The new unit is working and is rock solid so far. I can easily see the Wi-Fi Card wearing out again when we use this for church services so make sure you have an extended warranty and keep the box. I would give this 4 to 5 stars if Sling would expand the HDMI in Ports from 1 to 2 and provide an option to connect directly to the unit so you are not 100% reliant on the Sling Wi-Fi to connect to the base station. In order to show a PowerPoint during service you have to buy a $300 wireless extender if you plan to use an HDMI camera with the unit during service. We should be able to make use of the USB C port to connect a PC for presentations. However, after buying a Cerevo Livewedge, using Switcher Studio, and trying out a Roland Switcher, the SlingStudio is the best combination of all 3 on the market. Our Church service finally had that professional look we were looking for while operating a on a shoe string budget. Why 3 stars... See comments 1-3 which are still needed for the device to be a 5 star system.

 I have to keep posting new reviews because for some bizarre reason Amazon won't process the updates I submit. So; *** April 15th, 2018 ***The first unit failed during its initial outing. I tried multiple resets and it wouldn’t connect to anything. The blue light just flashed for hours, and the orange light would glow steady after a reset but wouldn’t broadcast its SSID to connect for setup. Too late to return it. Working with customer support right now to have a replacement unit sent out. Will update review pending resolution.*** UPDATE #1 - April 20th, 2018 ***First of all, I want to extend my utmost gratitude and respect to Sling's PHENOMENAL customer service team! WOW! The woman who received my initial call was very polite, knowledgeable, and within a few short minutes had initiated the process to ship me a new unit! Shortly thereafter I received an email personally from Rich Edgley, Sling's Director of Customer Experience, with a UPS Overnight Express tracking number, and barely 18 hours later I had the brand new replacement unit in my possession! Customer service simply doesn't get any better than that! I spent several hours that evening testing out my new SlingStudio using various camera and audio configurations and everything worked tip-top as it was meant to without any hiccups. I'm providing a two day livestream for a client at the end of the month at which point I will update this review with some more detailed analysis of the SlingStudio's implementation and performance, along with some photos and video. My only real gripe is with the SlingStudio Console app. I wish it had a feature that would automatically switch between the different connected cameras at a user-defined interval; an auto-pilot if you will. That would be SUCH an awesome feature to have for the one-man-band, or allow the operator of the console to walk away from it for a minute or two without it being stuck on one camera angle. As of now, connected cameras can only be switched between manually.I'm really quite surprised none of the developers thought of initially building that feature into the app. I would deduct one star from this review for that oversight but that wouldn't be fair because this isn't an app review and the SlingStudio device itself is really quite a remarkably well designed piece of gear in solid build quality, aesthetic detail, and versatility in features and connectivity. As of right now I'm boosting my rating of this device to 5 stars as the design, concept, and functionality of the SlingStudiuo is fantastic, and because there simply isn't any other device on the market right now in this price range that offers wireless multi-cam 1080p HD livestreaming with such simplicity. I look forward to really putting this replacement unit to the test and will provide further feedback as that happens. Please stay tuned for updates.*** Update #2 - April 29th, 2018 ***First outing with the new replacement SlingStudio was a resounding success! It performed FLAWLESSLY over the course of a two night event I streamed for a small music venue where a wildly popular band performed. The SSID broadcast never dropped, the WiFi signal on all the cameras and my iPad stayed strong and never lost connectivity, and the SlingStudio Console app didn't lag or hiccup AT ALL! I am absolutely thrilled now that I have a fully working SlingStudio system, I absolutely love it and can't say enough about how it's perfect marriage of flexibility, ease of use, and stunning results have really opened up a lot of possibilities for streaming on so many levels, and I really want to thank the customer support team at Sling once again for genuinely caring about their customers and their products!Here are some photos of my setup for the event I just streamed, along with a terrible video taken from my phone of the SlingStudio Console app in action:

I was much too excited to receive this product for a huge project we had coming up, only to to discover it was defective and did not work. Because of this i was out nearly $2,000 and could not use it for the project deadline it was bought for... I'm sure had this hub not been defective it would've been amazing. I still like the concept of the sling studio, so will have to see what the replacement does i'm very disappointed i lost quite a bit of money and wasn't able to use it for the purpose it was bought.Problem: The blinking blue LED light, never went solid. It was almost as if it froze on start up.

I was unable to make the Livestream Broadcaster Pro work today with the latest Verizon modem USB620L. They no longer make the Verizon 295 which is still recommended on the Livestream website, and AT&T also does not make the Momentum any longer, and they state on their website that the unit does not work with the latest AT&T Beam USB modem which is the only one you can get now.I was on the phone multiple times today and their support could not help me make the unit work with the Verizon USB 620L modem (paid $250 for it!).So basically I am unable to use the Broadcaster Pro with a USB modem. (I am shooting a rally on the street tomorrow.) So I guess I will return it. If I ran Livestream I would immediately handle a situation like this - outdated modems listed on the website and an inability to get the device working with a new customer.Everything else about your company so far has been great, but this did not work for me and I would see a returned non-working product as a serious problem if I were you.

I really like the mission of Livestream and we increasingly use the service to provide the families of our school with online access to live events and activities at our school. We've been using a computer and old video camera (from the 90's I think) to stream our events. It took me about a year to get to where I could wrangle the resources to purchase this latest Livestream Broadcaster Pro (directly from Livestream-sorry Amazon). In any case, the first unit arrived and I noticed a couple of things that caused me to immediately be concerned:1) As I took the unit out of the package for the first time, the little rubber feet (3 of the 4 on the unit) stuck to the packaging, basically falling off the unit. Now, I realize that maybe that's not the biggest deal to most folks but the investment we made in this device was substantial (for us) and I expect the technology I purchase to hold together for a while before this sort of thing starts to happen.2) I noticed that there was also a scratch or mark on the main display in the upper left-hand corner that was about 8mm long. Again, I noticed this immediately out of the box. The mark did not appear to effect function and was probably more an annoyance than a critical issue.To their credit, when I contacted Livestream they quickly agreed to return the first unit and replace it with a new unit. So, I give them high marks for their quick response. Unfortunately, the second unit has pretty much exactly the same issues. I followed-up with their service people and suggested that it would appear, based on my experience, that they have either a manufacturing issue and/or a packaging issue that results in a couple of cosmetic damage outcomes. I genuinely like being able to purchase something that is actually made in America. I would also like what I purchase to be of the highest quality possible and, regretfully, based on my experience with these Livestream units, I do not believe that is the case with this Broadcaster Pro.I will follow-up this initial experience with additional information once I am able to put the unit through some field testing with an HDMI camera (once we round one up). I'm uploading a short video on YouTube to share my experience as well.

This is a piece of proprietary hardware that ONLY works with a proprietary streaming service. The fact that the name is livestream only serves to confuse the buyer further in the description of this product. I have asked for it to be clearly spelled out in the description but we will see. Also if you look at the box itself, it is exact in every detail to my VidiU which is open to all streaming services like YouTube, Wowza, influxis and hundreds more that show up everyday, Obvious it is the same hardware running a different software. As a broadcaster for many years let me say that purchasing the Broadcaster Pro will severely limit your growth potential. This one is going back,

It wouldn't imbed a like to websites unless you got a big package that is 2,000 a year with them and then when we went to get a refund they fought us about it and basically told our church no we won't give you your money back. The years membership we paid for and used for 5 min that was 599.00 for the year was useless to our needs so service and costumer service all was bad and you can't talk to a live person unless you have the 2,000 - 10,000 a year account unless you throw a big enough fit

Make sure you understand what you're getting when you buy this box. It does RTMP only - which is limiting. You either have to use Ustream or one of the other RTMP-capable services or set up your own server, which can be difficult. Having RTSP would be far more useful. The really annoying thing is the box DOES have RTSP inside somewhere - the web interface uses it for the previews - but they don't open it up general purpose...probably for licensing reasons and to avoid undercutting their pro offerings that cost twice as much.All that said it's a fairly easy to set up, reliable box. I've run a ustream streaming camera on it for hours and hours and it works fine. External power is a must - it's battery hungry. But that's fairly easy to rig and not a big deal.
August 16, 2015
The product itself works as described. Its meant to remove the need for a computer. I would highly recomend that you check your internet speed before you invest in this because I was using this to stream to youtube live events and the quality was very poor. I'm sure in part it was my internet but I still expected much better quality then I was getting. Also, make sure you download the app. It makes the process much easier.
April 22, 2014
HDMI in, Cat5 out, turn on, choose streaming service, choose event, broadcast.Simple to use. Super glad I chose this unit.And yes, it does take forever to 'boot up'.At $700 it's expensive, but it would have cost you $20 grand 20 years ago to do what this thing does.A few years from now it'll be an app on your iPhone for $20.
December 20, 2015
This device is pretty cool. Very happy with this purchase. Easy to use and setup using the downloadable app. I use it to broadcast a HD signal out of my camera via the HDMI port to my Ustream channel and with a solid internet connection this thing works like a charm. I had no problems broadcasting for 4 hours straight. highly recommended.
December 6, 2014
Used it so many times and really like it. Works as advertised, really solid - takes a while to start up but once running its a charm.Some things I would like is, lets say the device should be able to notify when the stream is down or video loss via the app using its bilet in wifi.
August 6, 2014
This thing works great! Very happy with it. Replaced a whole computer setup with a lot of complexity. Now we have a small box you turn on and press the red button... It's great to have the portability when we need it, but works great just plugged in and wired too. Thought that the menu system on the device was GREAT. Having the app to configure it was icing on the cake, the front panel was plenty to get it up and running.
April 21, 2015
Works great! We use it to broadcast our church services. Bought another brand and had a lot of problems. This broadcaster is very reliable.

Believe what others have said: it doesn't work. Decided to give it a try because some people have gotten it to work, and some of the reviews from those who didn't seemed to be people who thought it should be plug and play. I've worked with digital video and streaming for years, so I know what I'm doing with a device like this. Got it, figured out how to set it up on my camera (not as easy as it sounds, had to find a YouTube video as their instructions are mostly worthless), and testing from home was at least able to get it to log on to my wifi network and act like it was going to start a test stream, but it failed at the actually live streaming part. Undeterred, and know that my home network might not have the bandwidth, I took to our actual streaming location where it wouldn't even communicate with the app on my phone, no matter what I tried. An absolute dog of a product. Sent it back and got a refund.
January 11, 2016
I just received the Lifestream Broadcast mini. I does not come with a manual or instruction. There are no instructions on there website to assist one in setting up. It would not pair with my phone and I did not have a password for the WIFI. I will be returning it today.

February 9, 2017
I've never been able to make it work on the free download, but once .From what I have found you will have to pay for the premium plan at $200 and 1 year minimum to get any help, and it will only load to Livestream.com

Today on 8/19/2016 my dad told me and showed me that the livestream mini battery swelled up and looks like it's about to burst into flames....... and now I am very upset and I want my money .....
August 19, 2016
What a piece of CRAP!!! I bought two. They don't work. When I tried to do the firmware update, one locked up and won't even boot anymore. I tried to contact Livestream (the people who made them) and they have not been responsive. My first email go an automatic reply. The next day came a "my product expert" is out of the office reply. While waiting for some information from the "expert", I received a third email which said:"We contacted you a few days ago to see if you had a chance to review the latest update from Pedro, the Customer Advocate assigned to your support request.We haven’t heard back so we’ll solve the ticket for the time being.We hope you resolved the issue successfully, but, if this isn't the case, simply reply to this email within the next few days and your ticket will reopen again automatically."Really???Their customer service stinks!
May 18, 2016
I've only streamed a couple of events (I bought this to broadcast hockey games) but so far it's worked great. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that there are no included instructions; you must go to the Livestream site to read them. (I know that's the way the world is heading, but this is a device that's going to be used on-site at various events, and having to refer to the web could be problematic. For a $300 device, there should at least be a cheat-sheet included.)That said, the device paired to my phone easily and setup was straightforward. New events were simple to create on the Livestream app, and I was able to stream flawless video on the "Adaptive High" quality setting using a mobile hotspot with an external antenna. Having used the previous version of the Broadcaster, I feel that the Mini -- controlled by the Livestream app on your device -- is an upgrade. Faster, easier, more flexible. Battery life seems good too, I streamed for about an hour and 15 minutes and still had full battery on the indicator. It does get a little warm in use; you'll want to keep it out of your pocket so air can circulate around it. I mounted it to my tripod using the included bracket.
April 20, 2015
This has to be one of the hardest devices to figure out. The nice packaging it comes in when you buy it from the livestream store is about the best thing that it has going for it now. I just got this, took me a few emails to even have it delivered, when it did arrive, it would not pair with my account from the android phone. Took it to several locations to ensure it was not my service. Won't find the phone, customer service is a paid feature so don't expect any type of support. Don't waste your money, they have the monopoly but the worst service and product. Easily will take your money but wont fix the device. Buyer Beware of this device!

So far I have done 3 events and this box is just one amazing piece of equipment, must have gadget for a wedding videographer.Works great with my Sony VG30 camcorder and Nikon D600 DSLR.I love the fact that I can create event on fly without a PC using the LiveStream Android App on my phone.. video quality is excellent and you have a choice of upto 5 different video broadcast quality.Setup was a breeze ... 3 steps and thats all there is to it, stores WiFi network to connect easily. You may want to invest in atleast 6 AA Eneloop rechargeable batteries.I cannot find a flaw in this device to give anything less than 5 stars, works exactly what I had imagined and then some. Magnetic tabs to hold battery panel is a prime example that goes on to show that LiveStream design engineers were thinking ahead of curve.Compact, lightweight, well lit display, excellent product overall made me login here and say few good words about this product.
January 2, 2013
Our church wants to get into live streaming but we have limited funds for gear and monthly subscriptions. They just bought a fairly decent HD Camcorder and then sprung the desire to do live streaming on me. My colleague investigate numerous services and found that LiveStream.com had a free subscription that did NOT include displaying ads. Plus this piece of gear which: - Saved us from over taxing our PowerPoint projecting computer by having to also manage a live HDMI feed - Saved us from buying another PC to manage the live HDMI feed - Can start and stop the live stream feed directly from the box or from my Droid or iPad (I don't even have to be in the area)We did our first live function last night and it was incredibly easy and reliable.
July 7, 2014
After researching several other video streaming solutions, I recently implemented the Livestream Broadcaster at our church. If you don't already have a streaming service provider, Livestream is a good option at $49/month (for the month-to-month plan). With the Broadcaster, you're buying a solution that's dedicated to Livestream, but the integration pays off when it comes to setup and reliability. Once you've defined an "Event" for your Livestream channel, you can go into the setup menus of the Broadcaster and select the event and be streaming in a matter of seconds.Now, with that said, a complex WiFi password is going to make setup a pain because of the joystick interface, and the proximity of the two joysticks makes it particularly maddening. When I was entering an alphanumeric string and got to a number, on more than one occasion I tried to move the joystick down and inadvertently pushed it "in" which is translated as "Select and try out this password." So much for UI design.My feeling is that one should use a wired Ethernet connection for anything serious, and only risk a WiFi connection of you have no wired option available. With that said, the prospect of tossing this on top of a Steadicam/Camera rig and broadcasting to the video village is highly appealing. If I have a chance to use it in that configuration, I'll come back and update the review.

*** Update 3/6/2015 ***I'm still using this Broadcaster to stream live events. In the 2 years of using I've learned that the only time I had real problems with this is when I used the lithium batteries. I use standard Duracell or similar batteries and it works great. The batteries last only about an hour and the unit does take about 2 minutes to restart and connect if you change out the batteries. I've come up with some other power alternatives such as using a 120 portable power supply similar to the Duracell 600 Watt Powerpack Pro to get around the short battery life issue.I have not had any issues with this remembering passwords. When I use this I have 3 different mobile hot spots with me each from a different carrier. I first test the connection with my tablet then select the best carrier to use for my event. I typically broadcast in Adaptive HD and the picture is great as long as I have about 3MB of bandwidth or better from the hot spot.At an event I attach the Broadcaster to my tripod with a clap and I attach my mobile hot spot to a different leg of my tripod so they are about 18 inches apart. It works great.I recently did an event with over 600 people watching at the same time, the Livestream network didn't let me down. After every event I get positive comments about how good the picture looks. When the updated version comes out in April 2015 I'll buy a new one and have the original one for a backup.*** Update 3/25/13 ***I still like the Broadcaster, however, when I used it with high quality Lithium Pro batteries the unit failed, I think it overheated. I've done several tests and a couple of events, one for almost 1.5 hours with inexpensive batteries without any heat issues. When I used the lithium batteries for a wedding after about 20 minutes the unit would not stay connected to my Verizon MiFi device. The signal strength indicator said I had a good signal (it was only a foot away) but the text on the screen said it could not find an Internet connection. So in the middle of the wedding I changed back to the standard batteries and the unit came back up and streamed for another 30 minutes without any problem. The only time I've had this problem is when I've used the lithium batteries. When I pulled the lithium batteries out of the Broadcaster they were very hot to the touch. So I'm staying away from Lithium batteries, I think I can get about 2 hours out of standard batteries which is should be find for broadcasting weddings. Here is a link to a wedding that I did using the "High" quality but not "HD" setting: [...]Original ReviewI purchased this to stream weddings and special events. I've used it a couple time to get comfortable with it before my first live wedding. During my testing I've learned a lot about the unit.- No matter what I've not been able to stream HD over a wireless network. Even when using SpeedTest.net to measure my upload speed at double what should be needed HD simply isn't reliable.- High quality is supposed to be almost as good a picture as HD and I can stream this quality over wireless and Verizon MiFi- When using the wireless with my Verizon MiFi, if I pass between the encoder and the MiFi hotspot I lose some of the bandwidth and I get a bandwidth warning. So, I keep clear line of sight between the encoder and the MiFi hotspot.- When I mounted the encoder on a bracket on my videocamera next to my Sennheiser ENG receiver I sometimes get interference from the encoder. When I move the encoder more than 6 inches from the receiver the static goes away.- The encoder is slow to start up and can take up to a few minutes to find my Verizon MiFi and connect to Livestream. Once you have selected the correct event the streaming starts quickly.- I have not had any problems with the encoder remembering WiFi settings. I have one setting in the encoder and it works every time. However I have to make sure my MiFi is up and running before turning on the Broadcaster of it won't find the network.- Battery life is not as good as expected. When I use standard AA batteries I get about 90 minutes of broadcast time. Since I'm planning on doing weddings this is plenty of time for me. I've not tested a higher quality set of batteries yet, I'll see at my wedding this weekend.Over all I like the Broadcaster and Livestream. Connecting to my event page and starting the streaming is easy to do. I may try to edit this post after my wedding and get comments from my clients.

My husband broadcasts our weekly church services and he loves this. It is easy to use and very portable. When we first got it, my husband had to work the first weekend so I used it myself to broadcast the service. This was the first time I had ever tried a broadcast by myself. We use it with a Black Magic ATEM mixer for a 3 camera mix. My husband says it works better than rendering video for ftp uploading. Playback and picture quality are great.

Don't buy this expecting to be able to stream wirelessly unless the network is unsecured. It is nearly impossible to select anything with the joystick on the front of this device. Try to enter a network password, no problem, try clicking to accept it and it will never happen.If you use it on a wired network then it's great. If it wasn't for the unusable joystick I would have given it 5 stars.

It has some serious blanking and sync issues when plugged into a Mac and the camera is set to progressive, when I switch to interlaced it works flawlessly. I don't know if this is a bug with my setup or not. I am on the latest firmware but it randomly drops out when I have it set to progressive. Otherwise the image looks great, and it makes it easy to injest video into our system.

Solid device for streaming. Although I would never use my sources directly into it, I love the quality of compression it brings to the streaming output!

It’s exactly what I expected and more. Works great with my 15” MacBook Pro late 2016 model. Paired with my Canon DSLR via HDMI it even shows the info displayed on the camera screen which I didn’t expect but am delighted to have. I haven’t tried using SDI yet, but I suspect it will work great with my Blackmagic Camera.

It works as advertised and was super easy to get up and running. The only drawback is that it includes no cords and there is nothing in the description to warn you in advance so that you can prepare or order a cord. On the Blackmagic Design website it implies that the cord is not included, but I did not check there first.
January 6, 2018
Only four stars because no power cable was in the box. After upgrading the firmware to the latest works like a charm.

Works awesome, we use it with OBS software to livestream

Perfect setup for live streaming with HD cameras.

I've tried a ton of headphones lately and these sound by far the best to me. I like generally flat sound. I'm more concerned with clear mids and highs and want present but not overpowering bass and low bass.Headphones I've tried include the following with my totally subjective sound rating on 10 point scale. YMMV.Audio Technica ATH-M50X - highs a little subdued for my liking - 7Beats Studio 2 Wireless - Subdued highs, some mid bass emphasis but not overpowering. 6Bose QC25 - A little weak on bass and weak on highs, best ANC. 7Bose QC35 - Can be a little bassy, especially at low volume. Bright highs. Best ANC. 9JBL - EVEREST 700 - Way too bassy. 5.JBL - Everest Elite 700 - Much better than non-Elite, 7OPPO PM-3 - Excellent, expensive. 10Sennheiser 202 - yuck. Too bassy, no highs, but cheap. 4Sennheiser 280 - well balanced. 8Sennheiser Momentum M2 - Close to perfection. 9.5Sennheiser PXC-550 - wireless noise cancelling. These are excellent. 9Sony - MDRXB950BT/B - Extra bass says it all. 4Sony 7506 - Perfection 10Out of all that I've tried the Sony 7506 are closest to perfection, to live performance. They are not bass heavy at all but can produce comfortable solid bass down to quite low frequencies. Tonal balance leans towards the upper mids and highs. Bright but not harsh. You end up hearing subtle sounds in the music that is missing with other headphones. Those who want more bass or don't want bright highs won't like these. But for my listening taste this matches perfectly.They are also very comfortable. Many of the headphones listed above are not as comfortable. Either tight band or thin band or ear cups that aren't big or deep enough. These headphones are great. Biggest disadvantage vs. many that I've tried recently is that these are wired... with a long heavy cord easy to get caught on things. I was looking for a wireless headphone. But ultimately I couldn't find one at a reasonable price that sounded anywhere near as good as these. Next closest was the Sennheiser PXC-550, but at $400, wireless wasn't worth an extra $320. I also found that there were times I didn't want noise cancellation. Too bad Sony doesn't make a wireless headphone with anywhere near this sound.Best of all, these are by far the cheapest of the decent sounding headphones I've listened to. The headphones in this list range in prices from $20 to $450.Highly recommend the Sony 7506... if you like this sort of sound signature.

These are my favorite pair of headphones I have tried so far. The overall sound of these are very balanced. This means the Low, Medium, and high tones are for the most part balanced out. You can easily look up a lot of information on these headphones. They are an industry standard which I have enjoyed owning for more than two years now.The overall design of the headphones is fairly good. They are structurally well designed for the most part.- Noise isolation is mediocre. You can hear people saying things through these depending on the volume.- Sound leakage on the original pads is fairly low. People won't have to hear your music when it is at a fairly loud volume.- Extremely long, coiled cable with 1/4-inch adapter. Possibly gold connections.- Sturdy cable design. Each cable bend point is reinforced with additional rubber. Soldering to the driver seems sturdy as well, it should be able to withstand most tugs. This is usually not an issue with the gargantuan coiled cable. The coiled cable also prevents a large number of tangles!- The headband is fairly comfortable. You could easily find a cover for it if it becomes a problem.- Cup adjustment pieces have numbers on them to ensure a specific setting.The problems I've had with these over time:- Headband will lose its tension between your ears over time. These headphones no longer fit as soundly on my head as they used to.- Faux leather pads will need to be replaced. I have included a picture of both of my ripped pads which I replaced with "Beyerdynamic EDT250V Headphone Ear Pads Black" these will create some additional noise leakage.- The wire that connects the drivers to the headband can get stuck in the housing. (see picture) This may wear the wire a bit.- Cable is extremely long. This can be an issue when you want to use these headphones outside of their intended purpose. The cable is generally a bit heavy, causing strain to the connections. I very often have to move it around to have it stop bothering me. The cable can be replaced with some soldering. There have been projects modifying the headphones to have a detachable cable. Google "Sony MDR-7506 Detachable Cable Mod" that I believe would improve the design of the headphones.- Like all over the ear headphones, these will be uncomfortable with glasses. They do become very uncomfortable after a few hours.- While these do come with a transport bag, even the fold up design makes them a bit of a pain to transport. This is to be expected.- Fold up design doesn't center the cups when the length of each ear cup is at minimum. (See picture) Not sure what this does to the longevity of the headband.- The blue portion of the "Professional" stickers on the sides are decals. One of mine peeled off. It looks similar, but is starting to disappear, and collects dust. (see picture)Aside from a few gripes, these are still my favorite set of headphones. They simply sound right. I was appalled to go to the store and listen to some Bose headphones and hear how bad the quality was in comparison: for a set of $300 headphones.These are undoubtedly worth the price. Don't hesitate to buy them if you can overlook the problems i have had.
January 18, 2015
I'm rating these five stars, but they do have one pretty big negative. They are excellent, studio quality headphones. If you plan to wear them out and about though (like the NYC commuter I am) they effectively also serve as earmuffs. That's all well and good in winter, but on the June day I wore them out, I was sweating out the top of my head and down my neck. Amazing sound quality, but not great for being out in the heat. In their defense, these headphones never made that claim. They never made any claims at all, as they are an inanimate object without speech capability. They do have the capability to deliver superb sound quality though, which is mostly what you want in a pair of headphones.

Razer Kiyo - Full HD 1080P Streaming Camera - Pro Webcam Optimized...

Razer Kiyo - Desktop Camera for Streaming with Illumination.

Available: In stock
$99.00
Buy this item
amazon amazon.com
I purchased this camera to use for streaming on Twitch.Video quality is fantastic, the on board mic works very well, and it was plug & play with Windows 10 and Open Broadcaster Software.The camera includes a hefty clamp/base mechanism that can be used in a number of ways. You can either use it as an actual base and simply set it on top of your desk/PC/ etc. Or you can do what I did and clamp it to the top of your monitor.It would have been nice to see this integrated or detected by my Razer Synapse software (I am running a Razer keyboard and mouse) but it is not. That could be a good thing depending on how you look at it.The integrated light ring was a nice feature and one of the primary reasons I purchased this camera, but I actually realized upon testing that I didn't ultimately need it since I have quite a bit of natural lighting in my work space. I could see the light ring being very useful for someone in low light situations. The light ring itself has a few power steps so that you can adjust it on the fly by simply turning the ring of the camera.
December 29, 2017
The bottom third of the ring light stopped working less than 30 minutes out of the box. Very frustrating. I'm returning it for a replacement, but I've lost confidence in this device for now. I'll update after I receive the replacement.
January 5, 2018
Never got it to work. Light would not illuminate. Will return but they appear in backorder.
January 4, 2018
As a very casual streamer, I was content with my old Logitech C910, but was really excited to try out this new Razer Kiyo. 1080p at 30fps or 720p 60fps and a ring light that really helps in poor lighting situations like I have. I either had to turn on more lights than I wanted, or try to point a lamp at my face so the image wasn't super grainy. With the Kiyo, the lighting is built in, so I can play in a darker environment but I'm still well lit and the image isn't grainy at all.The camera doesn't require any installation with Windows 10. Just plug it in, and it is detected and it's ready to use in Open Broadcaster Software (OBS Studio) for Twitch or wherever you want to stream. The camera has a lot of mounting options. It can hang on your monitor, sit on a flat surface, or mount to a tripod mount and be positioned however you need it. When the camera is on, a small white light turns on, since the ring light can be turned off. To adjust the light, just twist the outside of the camera to make it brighter or dimmer. It's almost too easy to use.In actual use, I was really impressed with the quality of this webcam. I tried 720p60 at first and it worked well but for a streamer who is mostly sitting there, 1080p30 is better for me and sharper because I like to zoom in with software and fill the frame without having the camera right on my face. This is the first time I used extra lighting, and at first it was a little weird to have the ring light shining on me the whole time, but I got used to it quickly. You can stream in almost no light except for your computer monitor and this camera and it works fine as long as you aren't too far from the camera. The autofocus worked well, but I usually stream with a plain black backdrop so it wasn't really a challenge for my older camera either.The Kiyo is very small and portable and collapses pretty small to take with you if needed. The Kiyo has a built in microphone which works ok, but I'd recommend a dedicated mic, whether it's your headset mic or something like the Razer Seiren X microphone. If you just have regular headphones and don't want to buy a special mic or headset, the camera mic will work, but it's best if you are in a quiet area since it does pick up ambient sound. my computer is fairly loud when I play games, so it picked that noise up fairly easily. Still, it's a good option if you just want to plug the camera into your laptop, hang it on top of the screen and talk to someone on skype with normal headphones. I realize not everyone will be using this for gaming all the time.Overall, I was impressed with this Kiyo camera. The build quality is nice, better than many Razer products I've used, and it worked immediately right out of the box. The image quality is good and it works in very little light. I would recommend this for a streamer starting out that doesn't want to invest in too much camera and lighting equipment. If you buy a cheap piece of green screen fabric and hang it behind you, you can have a great looking chroma key webcam stream in OBS very quick, even if you've never streamed before.

This review is not coming from a gamer, but rather a person who creates instructional video e-learning in many different environments. It's one thing to have a studio in which lights can be situated to create the best look, but being "on location" is a much different story. Thus, the built-in lighting, plus this unit's ease of portability, makes it an excellent choice for anyone who needs to create "talking head" video away from the comforts of an office or studio. In the past I've made do with available lighting, but there are times when it doesn't look the way I'd like. After using this Razer Kiyo, I'll tell you that having the light can make a significant difference.LIKES:** No software required on Windows 10. Plug and Play!** Adjusting the light is EASY. Just turn the ring around the light as if you adjusting the volume knob on a radio.** Portability. The tripod mounting option is awesome for my needs. It also sits on a flat surface easily without it having to sit precariously. Very user-friendly for recording interviews in someone's office.** Compatible with OBS. I've been using Open Broadcaster for a while now. It provides awesome technical director capabilities so I can easily create engaging e-learning. I highly recommend it, but I suppose my touting that program is for a different review. As for the Razer Kiyo, anyone familiar with OBS will appreciate the easy interface.** FPS options. These are not options I've had before in a camera, and I see a lot of value in having them. 1080p / 30fps seems to work well for my head shots, but I did a trial doing a two-person interview, and the 720p / 60fps seemed to work better for that.DISLIKES:** Built in mic. It doesn't have a super-professional sound quality. Don't misunderstand -- I'm glad this unit precludes the need for an external mic, and the built-in mic is okay for many of circumstances I need. But after a bit of testing, I can tell there will be times when a separate mic will provide much clearer recording.That's about it, really, for dislikes. And it's not even a dislike -- more of a "could be better." Overall this is a really nice camera and there is little to dislike about it. For anyone who creates video instruction or does live webinars, I think it's a great camera and I highly recommend it.

  Much better than the (dirt cheap) Neewer 3.5mm Hands Free Computer Clip on Mini Lapel Microphone (3X Lapel Microphone) but less great than I was expecting based on reviews. I tested on several recorders and a phone, and while they sounded OK, they were a bit too sensitive to background noise and echo. For now, it is my primary go-to lav until I find something more omnidirectional. They do work well for interview work. My biggest complaint is that foam windscreen does not stay on well at all and as it is so small it is exceptionally easy to use.Check out my video where I compare it to other mics side by side with other recorders.

I use the actual $130 Senheisser G3 mics and wireless systems every day for work. I bought these for my freelance video/audio set up at home and they have almost the exact pickup pattern and are actually a little more sensitive/louder than the originals. They don't have a removable pop filter like the originals but they are very small so it hasent been a problem. Easy to hide under garmets, has a fantastic sound, and a fantastic price. Only thing is the cord seems thinner and cheaper and is about 1.5 feet shorter than the originals, but that hasent been a problem. Still plenty long to run for the transmitter to collar with length to spare. I'll be buying more!

Got this for my Panasonic GH4, and was hoping to use it with my multi-channel recording interface as well. Works great, however, my downfall is that I'm tech-savvy, my use case was extraordinary, and I did not realize how these lapel mics work. The Mic-J 044, as with other lavalier mics, are condenser microphones which require power to operate. External recorders such as the Zoom H1 and others, DSLR cameras, wireless belt packs, even computer sound cards, provide what is known as "Plug-in-power" with anywhere from 3-5 volts to power the mic. This is much different than the 48-volt phantom power you would see on an XLR-based mixer (don't try to use it, as it will likely destroy the mic). If you want to use an entry level lav like this in anything that doesn't supply "plug-in-power", you will need to get (or build) a battery power supply, not just a simple adapter from 1/8" to XLR. (There are several out there, even here on Amazon, for around $15). Also, note that the Sennheiser locking 1/8" TRS connector is not balanced. It is wired as a mono (T is + and R&S are -).In any event, I'm looking forward to getting lots of great use out of the two JK Mic-J 044's I purchased, and pleased with their performance.
September 25, 2015
I bought this as a possible replacement / backup for my Sennheiser g3 lav.Pros:+ the clip design makes it easier to position and hide than the g3+ audio turned out greatCons:- slightly shorter cable- poor design of the connector clip onto the g3 wireless belt pack. Feels very cheap when screwing it into the g3 and I wondered if it was even screwing in (it was that bad. That said - the recording turned out great and it did work)- less build quality than the g3.For the price, it seems like a fine option but it didn't live up to my expectation and will be relegated to a backup lav instead of my primary unit. Perhaps I'll test it out some more and start using it more but for now - backup it will stay. If you found this review helpful, feel free to click the helpful button.

This is a great lapel mic for the money, I got this mic for my sennheiser g2 system. The sound is very nice and clear, with a good flat tone, and you won't need to add much volume. The build is not the best, the cable is very thin, thats why i gave it a 4 star. I will buy another one of these back up. I produce music, I am very hard to please when it comes to sound. So go for it!!!
January 23, 2014
This is a great little microphone. I have only had it for about a week now, but on times I have used it I have captured some great sounding audio. I am recording through this lapel mic into a Tascam DR-03 recorder and getting great results for the price. I think this microphone actually has a fuller sound than the professional Sennheiser lapel mic that cost 5x the price. I would assume the build quality is better of that microphone, but what I have heard of the audio only I prefer this little JK mic. I would definitely recommend this mic to anyone in need of a lapel mic on a budget.
April 27, 2017
 Great product... sound clean and works beautifully. Only thing to remember is that records in MONO.... so you'll have to duplicate the channel wgith a software (Audacity will do) in order to hear it in both left and right channels.
August 11, 2016
From my test this mics sounds every bit as good as a Sennheiser ME2 lav mic when used in the Sennheiser G3 wireless system recording into a 5D3 or a handheld recorder. It actually is a bit more sensitive than the ME2 which is a good thing as the preamps don't have to work as hard. It's a little smaller than the ME2 so it's easier to hide. The cord is thinner and flimsier than the ME2 so I wasn't crazy about that, but as long as the talent isn't rough with this and you take care of it, it should last. Regrettably I had to return this lavalier because it requires "plug-in" power, a small voltage greater than 2 but less than 10 volts, and wouldn't work with my secondary wireless system transmitter that does not supply plugin power.

I have no issues with the sound quality of this microphone. It is very sensitive, in fact, leading me to turn down the recording level to prevent picking up background noise. It also seems very well constructed.As others, I believe, have mentioned the only thing keeping this from being a 5-star product is the size. That said, it is not monstrous, but bigger than more expensive lav mics. Alone, it looks a lot like a regular lav mic with a windscreen, so it wouldn’t attract too much attention.Add a windscreen and it grows to the size of large grape — not something I would recommend for professional video/ broadcast but certainly not ridiculous for amateur, semi-pro or PA use. Like most electronic items, if you want the smallest and lightest of anything you should be prepared to pay for it. Otherwise, this is probably one of the better values you are going to find.

MIC-J 017 is the 3rd lavalier mic I am trying to replaces my Sennheiser ME2 wireless mic.The cable is short and feels a little slimmer and flimsier than the ME2, but the shortness prevents entanglement.The head clamp is bigger and feels more solid than ME2. I put a wind screen over, which made the mic look even bigger. With the windscreen there was no wind noise problem on my last weekends of outdoor events. The sound differences are minimal. The mic is a little more sensitive than the ME2, so I lifted the pad to 43db.I tried also the MIC-J 016 Pro Lavalier Lapel Microphone JK MIC-J 016 for Sennheiser Wireless Transmitter - Noise Cancelling Condenser Mic which is significant more wind sensitive but smaller than the MIC-J 017. I think at the moment I prefer the MIC-J 017 for outdoor events (less wind sensitive)and the MIC-J 016 for indoors (less visible).Both MIC's are 1/4 of the price of the Sennheiser Me2 Sennheiser ME 2 omni-directional lavalier EW microphone. I will update this review and let you know what the life time of this MIC's are. I have 80-90 outdoor and 20-30 indoor events a year where I will use this MIC's. I used 3 Sennheiser which had only a lifetime of 12-14 month.I gave it only 4 points because it is more visible than the sennheiser mic. If it would be smaller, I would have given 5 stars.
November 9, 2013
Microphone works great, the clip not so much. The clip broke the first time I used it. The clip itself is metal, the part that holds the mic is plastic, I put it on my tie and about 10 min later it was hanging, I noticed the clip had broken. Luckily I had another clip that worked on the wire. Have to see if they will send me out a new clip. That is the only reason it lost 2 stars, clip broke first time I used it. Sound quality was very good with this mic.
March 29, 2015
This is only slightly better than the cheapest lav with a screw lock. I have other lavs that cost less that sound way better but needs a trrs to trs adapter which is included which all costs way less and you can use it on cellphones and tablets and computers. For the money this is not worth getting. Also during playback with synced dual speakers sound only comes out of one speaker. Got this for the F1 its barely ok and you need the highest recording level. Just not worth the price.
March 10, 2018
I wasn't sure whether to get this mic or the JK MIC-J 044 (also on Amazon for around the same price) so I decided to get both. In my experience the other mic sounds much better. I only use this one as a backup, not only for the sound quality but the bulky size. If you're buying just one, I'd go with the JK MIC-J 044.
March 14, 2018
Awesome mic. I use it with my tascam dr-05 and it works really well. I first got some cheap few dollar mics and they were very bad. Im no audio professional but to me this offers a very good quality and to get anything noticeably better will probably run you a few hundred more.
July 4, 2015
compared to the quality of a genuine sennheiser this is at 80% or up to 90% if you adjust serious and medium in console
February 23, 2018
surprised on how controlled the output of the background noise and minor adjustment and movement of individuals using the mic. In the past you can hear a pop or a rustiling of sound when the user is moving around but now there is no sound coming through the mics. Even if I turn up the volume to max the background noise can be barely heard. I would recommend this for indoor use and outdoor use.

Luckily I had another clip that worked on the wire. Have to see if they will send me out a new clip. That is the only reason it lost 2 stars, clip broke first time I used it. Sound quality was very good with this mic.

This is only slightly better than the cheapest lav with a screw lock. I have other lavs that cost less that sound way better but needs a trrs to trs adapter which is included which all costs way less and you can use it on cellphones and tablets and computers. For the money this is not worth getting. Also during playback with synced dual speakers sound only comes out of one speaker. Got this for the F1 its barely ok and you need the highest recording level. Just not worth the price.

I wasn't sure whether to get this mic or the JK MIC-J 044 (also on Amazon for around the same price) so I decided to get both. In my experience the other mic sounds much better. I only use this one as a backup, not only for the sound quality but the bulky size. If you're buying just one, I'd go with the JK MIC-J 044.

Awesome mic. I use it with my tascam dr-05 and it works really well. I first got some cheap few dollar mics and they were very bad. Im no audio professional but to me this offers a very good quality and to get anything noticeably better will probably run you a few hundred more.

compared to the quality of a genuine sennheiser this is at 80% or up to 90% if you adjust serious and medium in console
February 23, 2018
surprised on how controlled the output of the background noise and minor adjustment and movement of individuals using the mic. In the past you can hear a pop or a rustiling of sound when the user is moving around but now there is no sound coming through the mics. Even if I turn up the volume to max the background noise can be barely heard. I would recommend this for indoor use and outdoor use.

Other than a slight issue getting the product to update, using the manual process it updated just fine, I absolutely love this product. Very easy to use even from the very limited front panel interface. The Apps and Wen UI are also very well done and easy to use. It is responsive enough and does a great job webcasting. I am already recommending it to many colleagues!

It's working perfectly well streaming live to my Facebook Page however I get some intermittent loss of sound while streaming but not sure why .. if it is as a result of our sound system or some other settings that needs adjustment, however the video quality is good

Decided to give this product a second chance and after consulting with their tech support I must say they were very helpful. Have to give credit where credit is due. I had to however get a iPad pro as my iPad air 1 does not work with it, keeps crashing. Also had to purchase the $99 pro version and that worked very well with the iPad Pro. Would love to get the recording but can't afford that after having to buy the Ipad Pro and their Pro software very disappointed in that. It has been working very good so far and will update in a few weeks when I go out of the country to do a broadcast.

If you were to tell me this cheap no-brand lavalier would perform on par, or better than, lavalier's that cost 10x to 100x the cost - I wouldn't have believed you. But I'm hear to report, this lavalier sounds incredible.I read many reviews, and listened to many samples of reviews on YouTube, and always came back to this lapel mic. Right now I'm using it by plugging directly into a dSLR camera. I also use a 16' extension mic cord for longer reaches. Speaking of, make sure you use a microphone cable and not a headphone extension. The headphone extension does not have shielding for interference. The mic cable does. But you will have to pay more (actually, the mic cable cost me more than this lapel mic). :-)I got the stereo version (which simply splits the mono signal to both channels) so I didn't have to do that step in post-production.The pickup is strong with minimal background noise and cord handling noise. The quality of the audio is true and accurate for vocals, and makes for a fantastic interview mic.However, before purchasing, make sure you check which Pro JM lapel mic you are buying. There are many versions on Amazon, and the reason for this is the external plug. Each plug has a very specific purpose to fit a specific type of plug. Buy with the right connector and it works. But with the wrong connector and it won't work. Read first. Purchase responsibly.

This is the right mic for a Zoom H1. It provides both channels so you don't have to take care of that in post, and it sounds just as good as its mono versions. You don't give anything up and don't even have to adjust your normal input levels using this in place of the mono version. It's perfect.

I just got this puppy yesterday and I'm stoked because I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to capture audio in a wedding when there is no soundboard or if I'm in the back of a room, far from a subject. I did some research and came across the Tascam DR-05 recorder TASCAM DR-05 Portable Digital Recorder (Version 2). I watched youtube video prodcut reviews to actually hear what the sound, sounded like and I was blown away. The price of this things was amazing as well, I couldn't pass on it. I got it yesterday and for someone who has never had a voice recorder before or a lapel mic, the controls were pretty intuitive. I did some sample recording and the sound was very crisp and clear. I have a wedding coming up in June and I can't wait to use this puppy.The build is lightweight and you can barely tell it's there. It came with 2 (two) windscreens which was nice. Only thing is I wish there was a carrying case for the mic. I don't want to damage it by stashing it in my camera bag, maybe I can just put it in it's original packaging. The cord is nice a long for any subject to have in there back pocket, side pocket, or coat pocket.Buy this thing today and you won't be disappointed.

This is the second time I have ordered this lav lapel mic, they work great!I would recommend investing in some windshield covers as the ones that come with this mic come off very easy... these are the ones i am currently using without issue: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013P1HKN0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I used this in conjunction with my Audio Technica broadcast lapel mic (35 years in pro video). It has noticeably more noise, and is muffled in comparison. I was able to remove almost all the noise in Adobe Audition, and use the Channel EQ in Final Cut Pro X to make a very close comparison (when I clipped both mics on together and recorded the same source). Close enough that I don't fear using the mic for pro work now that I have a process to clean it up. It's a spare I keep in the bag in case something breaks.I bought the Rode XLR adapter for it. Not a tight fit, but I tape it in and it doesn't click or buzz. Likes 24v phantom, but goes silent with no phantom or 48v phantom.

This is a really good sounding lapel mic. Used to use countryman in my church, lost one, and trying this one to replace it, hoping the quality is acceptable. And I'm glad I bought it. Really good sound! I replaced the lost countryman with this Mic-J 044, nobody complain, and they are quite happy with the sound quality.
April 21, 2017
Purchase it and hoping to get better sound, but I really can't tell much from the OEM lavaliere mic that I got from a BOYA BY-WM6 wireless mic system. Tried on my Zoom H1 and the sound is very similar to any low end microphone.
May 12, 2017
I have been using another lav mic into my Tascam DR-05 digital recorder, but the connector broke and I found myself in need of a replacement. After doing some research I kept seeing this little mic recommended, so though I would give it a try.I am glad I did.The gain is very good, rejection is decent, and sound quality only needed a little adjustment in my DAW when recording in an untreated room. Nice little mic.

Picks up sound really well. The only downside is the plastic clip which broke the first day of use.
April 20, 2018
 Just upgraded my review from 1 to three stars. The mic does work in the dslr camera but not in the iPhone or MacBook. I may try buying an adapter to see if that works.Needed it for interviews the weekend after I got it. Took it for a test run but it didn’t work at all until I tried it in the DSLR. So podcast is out. Good sound but not as versatile as advertised.

The sound quality was great, but after my first shoot not sure what happened. The mic broke. But while it worked it sounded great.

I checked out several microphones for indoor voice interview recordings. I fond the MKE 600 was great. Not sure how much better the quality would be if I had a larger budget, but for the price, I think it is a good purchase.

Countryman H6OW5TSL H6 Omnidirectional Wireless Headset Microphone for Shure/Carvin/JTS/Trantec Transmitters (Tan)

The Countryman H6 is the clear solution for anyone who has experienced fitting issues with the E6 models. When fitted correctly, the E6 was a winner for sure, but for many sound techs, myself included, gaining the necessary time it takes to fit the E6 firmly to the speaker was daunting. I'm a sound tech at a university as well as a church and we have guest speakers coming in multiple times a week. Many times we don't have time for a proper sound check and this always leads to problems behind the board. Feedback and inconsistent levels galore.The H6 pretty much gets rid of those issues. For one thing, its a lot easier to adjust on the fly and takes much less time. It also stabilizes the mic by keeping it tighter to the speakers face. Gone are the unconformable days of having to put your hands in your speaker or pastor's face while you bend and adjust the mic to the side of their cheek. For the most part, the H6 is so straight forward that most speakers don't require a lot of assistance with it. As far as sound quality, its everything that you've come to expect from Countryman. Very crisp and, since its fitted correctly, doesn't require a whole lot of extra adjustments from behind the board. I've found that if you have a consistent speaker, after you dial his/her voice in, you can save your settings and trust that it'll sound the same next week.I highly recommend the H6 to any church or place that regularly mics presenters.

I've tried multiple microphones that can clip on over the ear to save speakers in our organization from holding a microphone in their hands. This works seamlessly with our set up with very minimal interference and static. Sound quality is great. I also purchased an in-line amplifier thinking I may need it but it turns out I didn't need.

Great Headset
March 22, 2015
This has feedback like no other. I replaced a standard Shure PG30 with this for our church setup and I could basically hear the entire band through this during praise. Actual voice pickup was super low and it was basically a losing battle to make any words heard over the howling. We gave up swapped it back to the PG30. I contacted the company with a question about parts that came with this headset mic but never heard back. I'm returning before I have any further issues as I don't want to be stuck with a product that has no support.
