10ft Premier Series 1/4-inch (TRS) Right Angle Male to Right Angle Male 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated)
2.4GHz 2-Way Wireless Microphone System (with Hip Clips & Camera Mount)
Enjoy the benefits of hands-free, wireless, two-way communications using this Wireless Microphone System from Monoprice.
This 2.4GHz wireless communications system is designed for professional videography and personal communications applications. In a videography scenario, it allows you to record audio from the on-camera talent and to give audio cues to the talent to distances up to 150 feet, without those cues being recorded.
The microphones at both end are "always on", so it is also perfect for hands-free, two-way personal communications. This makes it well suited for use by busy professionals who need to be in constant contact on the job, such as stage hands, security personnel, restaurant staff, and event coordinators.
The receiver and transmitter are each powered using two AA batteries (not included). The transmitter features a belt-clip, while the receiver includes both a belt-clip and a cold-shoe mounting option.
- 2.4GHz wireless two-way communications system
- Only audio from the transmitter is recorded, allowing the camera operator or producer to give live audio cues to the on-screen talent without those cues included in the recorded audio feed
- Lavalier microphone includes foam windscreen/pop filter and lapel clip
- Microphones are "always on", allowing for hands-free communications
- Receiver includes both cold-shoe and belt-clip mounting options
- Receiver and transmitter are paired at the factory, so no additional pairing is required
- 150 foot actual range in clear air

PROS: Novel idea of two way communications in a wireless microphone. This system provides continuous full-duplex communication (unlike a FRS radio).
CONS: The audio signal output from the receiver has hiss, pops, crackles and other e-noise.
PROS: Great value and at a great price. Gives you another option for audio capture.
CONS: Made of plastic and feels/looks cheap but definitely not a deal breaker if you need the freedom of a wireless mic but have a limited budget. Besides, your talent will mostly likely pay little to no attention to it any way.
The manual mentions, there's a time delay between what you say and what you hear at the receiving end. They suggest up to 1 second which would be completely unusable for video if you can see the speaker's lips moving. Maybe its a typo and really says up .1 second. Anyway, I measured about 105 ms (0.105 seconds). so while you can hear it (try talking into a mic and listening to the delayed audio can be interesting). In a quick video test, I didn't find the delay to be obvious while watching the speakers lips. If you're using multiple wireless mics in a single session, you probably don't want to mix digital and analog due to the differing delays You could conceivably hear the same sound at multiple times due to the latency difference. My guess is if this is you WM system, it's probably a single system or two of these.
You can easily spend more for a system, but hard to spend less and get what this system delivers. I bought a second just in case.
PROS: Extremely low price, reasonable performance, compact.
CONS: Possible WiFi congestion interference, moderate lag in audio (latency).
PROS: I did not get any static as others described, but, I also did not go farther than 15 ft.
CONS: There is a noticeable delay in the audio when hooked up to a speaker. I know they are not necessarily made for that, but still annoying.
You'll want to buy a different lav mic. The included one works but it's nothing to brag about. I wouldn't expect a good mic for this price.
PROS: Extremely cheap. Two way communication. Easy setup.
CONS: Fair amount of noise/hiss/other digital noise. Audio comes in very hot. Volume buttons have no indication of level
PROS: Cheap. Ideally would be great since both packs are battery-powered, plus having two-way audio would be great.
CONS: Cheaply built felt like they were going to fall apart at any second. Which wouldn't have mattered since the connection was never clear of static, making these unusable.
PROS: Easy to use and no noise
CONS: 15 ft range.....
