Style Name: Channel N2Size: Earset Verified Purchase
We tried this product in a music store first (a little pricey there). We needed it for a small church so that we can not only amplify the sermon presenter, but so we can have a good quality digital signal for recording the message on the hard drive.

Results?
Pluses:
1. The sound quality is as good as the big names (Shure, Audio Technica, etc). Great for recording. Surprisingly clear for the price. Good response.
2. No wires on the transmitter! Just fit it to your ear and go.
3. Internal batterys on tranmitter and receiver, they charge up using a USB computer connection or a wall plug.
4. Price. For a small church, we can afford to get another one which I am ordering now. Just be sure that you order a different frequency for the second one. I think there are 6 different frequencies available (you can't program a frequency, it's built-in)

minuses:
1. The mute switch on the earpiece is awkward. You can't see it (it's on your ear). You press it once to mute, but you don't really know if it is muted. We just leave the transmitter live all the time and trust the sound guy to turn it off at the right times. A little risky.
2. If you turn the power off on the transmitter and the power is still on for the receiver, you get a loud hiss noise in your sound system because of the loss of carrior frequency. We leave the transmitter on until we turn off the receiver first.
3. Not many frequency choices. You are limited to 6 units max. That's OK with us.
4. Not sure if it would work well for an active presentation, like aerobics. It stays on the ear but I don't know how well it would do jumping around or quick turning or twisting.

Overall, I give it a 4 because it really is a nice unit, just a couple of quirky things. Like I said - I'm ordering a second one today because we are happy with it. It really is perfect for our church presenter. I recommend it for the right application.

AUDIO POSTING 2/19/13: I finally uploaded an audio sample from this unit (thanks for the prompting). This is from an actual classroom situation where the teacher is going around the room checking on student work groups. The visual is obscured for confidentiality but the dialogue is entertaining if you know Shakespeare. Distance from transmitter to receiver is about 30'. The mic is attached to clothing about 6" below the teacher's mouth and picks up the students' voices. I use these units quite often with the set-up as indicated below and the results are clear. Enjoy!

REVIEW UPDATE 4/4/12: Contact the manufacturer to determine which channel will work for your area. There are 5 channels available and one will work for your area but not in all areas. I purchased the channel N5 which does not work properly in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Samson Technical Support is very helpful and will save trouble of exchanging the unit for the correct frequency, of which I am doing right now: 1-800-372-6766. Samson Airline Micro Camera Mountable Wireless Lavalier Microphone System - Samson Model SWAM2SLM10 Frequency Channel N1 (642.375 MHz)

I did a lot of research on a wireless microphone system for my Canon 60D Canon EOS 60D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only) and came up with some basic factors to consider: UHF or VHF, durability of the unit and cost. In looking at all the websites and from what friends have told me, stick with UHF since it is much clearer and fairly static free.

Style Name: Channel N2Size: Earset
The Samson Airline Micro is very light and portable. I used it for 2 months (Oct - Dec 2010) to teach an aerobics class 5 times per week. It was a bit difficult in the beginning to learn how to fit the earpiece around my ear so that it would stay in place during the entire one hour class, but after a few weeks, I learned how to adjust it so that it would stay in place. I really liked how it fit only on one ear so that when I laid my head on the floor, there was no danger of injuring the mic, as is true with other wireless headsets. I also liked that it had rechargeable internal batteries for both the headset and the transmitter. The only issue is that only 2 months after using it, it stopped working. It would work for 15 minutes and then suddenly stop transmitting sound, even though it was fully charged and all the lights were on saying it had power and reception. It is now back at Samson for repair under warranty.

I've owned this mic for about a year now and couldn't be happier with it. I use it in church for children's messages where I need to have my hands free. I've used it at both a small church and midsize church. Others have borrowed it and love it as much as I do. It stopped working after about 2 months but that was my error. I didn't realize that you could only charge it on the stand if it was plugged into the sound system. If you use the y-charger, you can charge it anytime anywhere. It pays to read the manual!

I purchased this earset for my wife in April 2011 (seller Beach Camera through amazon). She is a Jazzercise instructor using the earset about 4 times a week on average. After only 9 months of use, the adjustment band just broke near the body of the device. Based on a quick internet search it seems to be a common issue with this product.
