The transmitter and receiver operate in the VHF band, where interference is very low. Choose between 169.445 MHz and 170.245 MHz for the clearest transmission and reception. The transmitter and receiver each operates for about 10 continuous hours on a single 9V battery (not included).
The receiver comes with an attached shoe mount for mounting a video camera, which may be easily removed using a Philips-head screwdriver. You can also attach the receiver with the supplied Velcro strip. The receiver includes an output jack and a telescopic antenna. Plug the supplied earphone into the jack to monitor your recording, or plug the earphone into a camera's earphone jack.
The system conforms to Part 90 of FCC rules, and it's not to be used in high temperatures, high humidity, or near a broadcasting station, airport, or on an airplane.

I've used this system for years and have gotten great sound. I've also used higher-priced wireless systems, and to my ear, there is no difference. Also, this cheap little Azden system is still going strong after some of the other brands bit the dust.
I don't think wireless lav systems can get the great audio you get with a shotgun mic, a boom, and a sound person, but those things are just not in my budget.
Out of the box and in operation in exactly 3 minutes.
There was one thing that was a problem, but it wasn't the mic's problem, it was mine. I didn't read carefully enough to notice that it was a mono input jack on the receiver unit. My camcorder requires stereo input. I needed to buy an adapter to convert mono to stereo input, so sound was pumped into both channels. ($2 jack at RS)
Battery life seems to be good. I do, as a matter of caution, put new 9v batteries in the mic and receiver whenever I am working on a project that is important. I've never had a dead battery during a performance, so we've managed to eke out at least three hours from a standard 9v battery set. I use the batteries I've taken out for other low-power 9v items and I am surprised how much power is left in them. I know that's not very technical, but this process of replacing batteries has played well for me and I have no concerns about the battery life for this Azden system.
Initially, due to the light plastic construction, I thought that these mics were just "toys." I resisted the urge to send them back to Amazon immediately and I am glad that I gave them a chance to work for me. The set has proven to be very durable after having crossed the USA in my carry on bags dozens of times. I'd buy them again if I needed an additional set. They moved from my "quick, cheap fix until I can get expensive mics" to my everyday sound system for my work.Read more ›
The Good: Easy to use...decent sound quality...two channels...I have yet to hear any interference or radio signal noise...comes with both lav and hand mics...light and compact.
The Bad: a little too light, a little too much plastic...I don't expect the belt clips to last for a very long time, but if you are careful, they will last long enough before you might have to improvise a mounting solution...the cable that supplies a signal to the camera or mixer is fixed to the receiver - I can see this being an issue down the line as the stress will build up and eventually cause a short.
In the end, if you need an inexpensive wireless mic solution, this system will deliver that for you with pretty good sound. As I am building my own production package (I have always used rental gear or gear from where I worked in the past), I will add a more "pro" wireless system in the future and budget allows, but I expect this setup will continue as a good backup in that future.
This is close to the ideal situation, open field, no obstructions, outdoors.
So, if you are using this for close in work. Worth it. Get it.
If you want to push the range, find a different solution.
