I tried a couple of cheaper microphones before purchasing this one and am very pleased. Sure it costs a bit more but it is worth it.
I've heard that the ME2 lav has an issue with the cable breaking at the capsule causing people to replace the microphone after a year of arduous use. My solution was simple. As soon as I knew I was keeping this mic I cut a short piece of black electrical tape (just enough to wrap around the end of the capsule/cable just about two times), then I made three cuts in the tape where the cuts would be below the capsule, then when wrapping the cable end I could form the wrap so it did not bulge or be unsightly on camera. The three spaced cuts allowed me to wrap the tape evenly by overlapping it. I think this should be sufficient to prolong the life of the microphone under normal usage.
I bought this because I was tired of getting interference with a cheap pair of wireless mics. These are easy to set and sound incredible.
I originally thought that you could hook up additional transmitters to 1 receiver, to mic 2 people, but no, this cannot be done. You will need this setup (transmitter + receiver) for each person.
They're easy to set-up for someone who knows very little about audio, and get the job done beautifully.
They're durable (metal housing)
I've honestly lost track of how long the batteries last, because my SLR batteries will die twice before I ever need to change the mic batteries.
Not only because of the battery powered XLR receiver that mounts easily to my XA10's hot shoe mount ,
but also because of the lovely sound of the mic and transmitter. And it DOES transmit from a nice distance!
I saw Izzy give a review of this sweet lavalier, and he recommended it for us entry folks, and I had to have it.
Now I can run and gun easy.
A bit pricey at around $600, but you get what you pay for and you won't regret this purchase.
A great investment.

Price-wise, this is a big step up from the Sony wireless mic, but if you (obviously) need a good mic for business, this is the one for you. The Sony was almost $200 and the Rode was $240, so there is an argument for jumping over that and going straight to this mic - if you can afford it. The Sony mic also gave some really annoying static from clothes rubbing on the mic line, which the Sennheiser does not do.
These units are quite heavy and well-built. The cords are very durable and this is clearly a professional-grade piece of equipment. Some argue that audio is more important than video quality and if you are starting out in the business, it can make sense to go straight to this mic. It comes with a cold shoe attachment for your DSLR camera as well.
The only issue I have had so far is figuring out mic placement. I did the standard thumb-forefinger thing and I still got a lot of echo. I switched to the collar and if you do that, really back off the dB's - which you can do (great for loud people).
Oh - and the unit comes with your choice of cardioid or omni-directional mics. Research which one you want and which unit has which mic. This one actually came with a cardioid mic.
The only thing I'm not overly excited about is the wire belt-clip. A bit difficult to manipulate for small, female hands--could have been made more user-friendly. But, they work. They're quite tough and tight, so I'd advise not to clip it directly onto your belt or waist-band--your clothes will be ruined. I got around this by cutting some stiff card-stock from an old Mead folder (you could use a hanging-file folder)--I fold the square of card-stock over my waist-band before sliding the belt-clip over it. This makes the belt-clip go on smoother and protects my clothes from the wire.
Overall, I'm quite pleased and amazed with this transmitter/receiver set.
Also, wanted to add: this will go through batteries like nobody's business. Best to use rechargeable batteries. I didn't go with the more expensive Sennheiser brand of battery pack that goes with this set. I use 4 rechargeable Energizer Power Plus AA batteries. These are made especially for use in electronic devices. They last through 1.5 hours of lecture--so far, so good.
