When I purchased this unit I was blown away by its clarity paired with my particular voice. Everyone commented how much better my vocals sounded and cut through my band. I liked it so much that I bought another unit for the co-front in our band. The only downfall is....for some reason and only once in about 30 or 40 times we use them, we will get an unwanted incredibly loud head turning, party stopping quick white noise burst. I have researched it and I'm not alone. Apparently some say it's a squelch problem, others say they tried that and it didn't work. Just be careful. I'm only writing this because it happen at a wedding last night during the parents thank you speech. I'm still embarrassed, and I can no longer use these mics in a very important or professional settings.
