Samson's Airline 88 Headset system offers true wireless freedom without the hassle of beltpacks and attachment cables.

Featuring a lightweight, waterproof micro transmitter headset with a secure yet comfortable fit, this frequency-agile UHF wireless system offers high definition sound, premium reliability and a 300' operating range for fitness instructors and active performers.

The Wireless Future
Building on the legacy of the world’s first cable-free wireless system (Samson’s AirLine 77), the AirLine 88 Headset combines a micro transmitter and adjustable gooseneck into a low profile headset that molds to the shape of your head. Other great features of the AH8 Headset Transmitter include an internal 8-hour rechargeable lithium ion battery, easily accessible Gain and Mute controls, and IR sync to wirelessly match the receiver and transmitter frequency.

Fitness In Mind
Designed with Yoga, Pilates, Zumba and cycling instructors in mind, the system's headset features waterproof components, including an adjustable stainless steel gooseneck, sealed circuit board and AE50X micro-miniature microphone capsule. The capsule's cardioid pickup pattern prevents feedback and other unwanted noise from affecting a performance.

Tour Support
Offering frequency-agile operation, the system's rack mountable CR88 Wireless Receiver provides 16 selectable channels for reliable performance no matter where you are. The receiver's True Diversity design minimizes dropouts, while tone key technology prevents interference. For classes with more than one instructor or facilities with multiple studios, up to eight systems per frequency band can be used simultaneously.

Used this mic in a professional atmosphere and it worked great. Pick up was good, didn't have to EQ the unit. Quality was good. And it is comfortable to wear.

Perfect Wireless Headset For Fitness Trainers


The Samson Airline 88 Micro Headset Wireless is perfect for those wanting a lightweight & discreet system. It was designed with fitness instructors in mind. 16 channels combined with a 300' range, along with UHF transmission eliminate signal loss to a high degree.

Great system for fitness instructors and educators. It's great for anyone who doesn't want to deal mess with a beltpack. 300ft is more than enough for most application. Great buy for the price.

Great wireless system for active people!


The Samson Airline series is all about bringing the highest quality sound to any live setting you can imagine from business meetings and seminars, to lectures and speaking engagements. This particular set is geared towards fitness instructors, with a sturdy build and waterproof microphone it's a perfect fit for anyone who needs a good audio setup while breaking a sweat. The sound quality is crisp and clear and it's easy to set up and get used to. I'd recommend this for any fitness instructors who want their students to be able to hear everything they're saying.

Modern headset


This is an ideal wireless headset unit for fitness instructors. Waterproof design, so as not to be affected by sweat, it featuresSixteen available channels to allow for no conflicts if using in space that has multiple classes going on. The rechargeable lithium battery helps reduce the ongoing cost for the busy teacher. This is a hands on review by Jim at Columbus Sam Ash.

Great for gym trainers


This year Samson updated their Airline series with the new 88 models. They now have a new sleek design for the headset as well as made them water resistant so when you sweat while wearing them, there will not be any issues. Up to 300 ft of wireless walking distance this is a great choice for trainers at a gym or anyone that doesn't want a body pack. on their hip.

Great Wirless Unit!


Great wireless system, very easy to setup and use. The sound is great. Great for performing on stage or and other hands free needs. I recently saw a tourist bus operator using one. Great for gym class teachers too!




Wireless Workout Heaven!


Samson's Airline 88 Headset system was designed with the needs of the Fitness instructor in mind. Unlike other wireless headset systems, the Airline 88 was built for the workout studio. The Airline 88's True Diversity design minimizes dropouts and dead spots, while Samson's tone key technology prevents interference. For larger classes or multiple teacher studios, up to eight systems per frequency band can be used at the same time. A great system for any Fitness instructor.

Great system for presentations and instuctors


This is a very reliable UHF wireless system. Many headsets can be uncomfortable but this one fits my head much better than others. It always has great sound and it's easy to find a channel that works for in your setting. This review is from Ellis at Sam Ash in Richmond, VA.
