Customer Reviews:
  • Great range, excellent features!
    I did my research on Amazon and other sites such as B&H Photo Video, and the Sennheiser G2 was consistently touted as the best model for videographers. The videographer for my sister's wedding used the same model (though he sloppily mic'd my brother in law, which I fixed).

    I bought this unit for a wedding at Chaminade in Santa Cruz, Ca. I used the autoscan on the receiver to find open channels, set the transmitter pac to that frequency, and then mic'd the groom. I did not experience any interference, I was even able to hear the groom when he was indoors and I was in the courtyard (several walls, probably 100-200 feet).

    There are some concerns in other reviews about the quality of the included lavalier. I found the lavalier to be adequate, it even stood up to a slight wind (though i will probably buy a wind screen for the future).

    I would highly recommend this unit to anyone needing solid performance form a wireless mic unit. It definitely not a casual investment, but it is a great unit.

    **Uses and settings for the wedding**
    Placement: Mic'd groom on his coat (his right side), half loop of wire through the alligator clip to prevent some rubbing. Twisty tied excess slack and tucked into groom's inside pocket, clipped transmitter unit to groom's belt on the back side.

    Settings: -10 on the transmitter, -24 on the receiver. (PD170 settings) Set Mic 2 input to Mic, manual gain (half of bar or less), no 48v phantom.

    The PD170 has two mic inputs, with the option of having Mic 1 going to both channels or only the first channel. Prior to the ceremony, I had the external shotgun mic going to both channels. When the ceremony started, I had the shotgun go to channel 1 and the wireless go to channel 2....more info
  • Great Equipment at a Good Price
    I did my research and Amazon.com has the best price on this piece of equipment. Combined with Amazon's excellent customer service and solid return policy, why go elsewhere? I'm very satisfied with my purchase. ...more info
  • Everything I hoped for and then some!
    I have a Canon XHA1 that I use to film events and weddings. This set-up makes all the difference in the world when filming from a distance. I love the back lit screens, the various channel offerings and the lock feature. I have not had any problems with the set-up so far and paired it with a Sennheiser e835 hand held microphone. The sound quality is top notch and the range is amazing it has no problems with walls or crowds of people interfering with the signal strength! I would recommend this product to everyone.
    There are a few things that I would change I suppose. 1. The interface for searching and selecting channels and other menus is a little complicated and takes a bit of practice to do quickly. 2. I wish it came with a case. I know there is a case available from Sennheiser as an optional accessory, but other set-ups I looked at came with a case. I solved this with a $40 professional foam case from Micro Center.
    If you are looking for a professional grade microphone set you will not regret this purchase. I spent more than I could afford, but I couldn't be happier....more info
  • Sennheiser EW100ENG G2 Wireless Kit
    Excellent performance, intuitive set up and opertation. Extremely sensitive. The only problem is wind noise. On windy days even a fur wind shield does not protect from rumble. Could probably locate the lavalier mic on the inside of the clothing and still pick up excellent sound, but have not tried that yet. The camera mount receiver works very well. Have not yet used the wireless transmitter that will connect to any mic with an XLR connector, but it is worth having because you can convert any professional mic to a wireless system and use the kit receiver to pick up the sound. I am very happy with this kit, and the price is very good for a system of this quality....more info
  • Videographers MUST have this System!!!
    I am a videographer, I specialize in weddings. I must say I have been trying to find a good wireless mic system for over a year now. I have done my homework and my conclusion was for the price this system is the best. It's easy to use, very well BUILT, and gives you great audio. If you are looking for a good wireless mic system BELIEVE me this is the one you want to buy. The cool part of this system is you can take the plug-in transmitter and plug it into a dynamic Sennheiser mic and Bam you now have a wireless handhled micrphone. In closing this is a great product and I can't stress enough if you want professional audio for under $1,000 than don't settle for anything else but this one I mean it.

  • Outstanding Product for Both Prosumers and Professionals
    I would consider my expertise on audio technology to be somewhere in between the prosumer and professional level, making this wireless microphone kit ideal for my needs.

    My production crew is still pretty new to the industry. We used to have a corded microphone that we would shoot with and our talent was responsible for dealing with the cord. After watching local television crews use their wireless microphone systems with such ease, we decided a transition to wireless was a must.

    The problem was that professional microphone systems were so cost prohibitive and many of them needed to be permanently mounted to a professional camera and we were still using prosumer level cameras. The great compromise however was finding this product which gave us the same functionality of a professional television crew, with the compact size and affordable price tag of a small mobile television crew.

    We have used the mic kit with our Panasonic HVX200 to perfection and the sound quality is phenomenal. The kit literally has everything you will need. You cannot find another prosumer mic kit that has both a plug-on transmitter and a bodypack transmitter with an included receiver at this price. Highly recommended. Buy today and you will not regret it....more info
  • Near flawless wireless microphone and NO 9V batteries needed!
    I'm a television producer/director using two Panasonic HVX200's at 24P and this Sennheiser wireless microhone. Thus far, we've shot 5 indoor/outdoor shows for two series with the microphone and I must say it's quite impressive. I'm not an audio expert but I know when something's working well. What's amazing to me is that these units use only two 1.5 volt AA batteries each AND the batteries generally last an entire 12 hour day! I have a 9V battery based Samson wireless microphone system that's downright voltage thirsty by comparison. (I have to replace the Samson batteries every couple of hours.) The sound quality of the Sennheiser is consistently excellent at various ranges with only an occasional audio hit or dropout. The main tme we've experienced the hits are when our subject is further away; say 75 feet or so. On those occasions, we've remedied the problem by either switching frequencies or by positioning the transmitter or receiver on a more direct line-of-sight orientation.

    The construction of the mic and receiver are solid, top drawer all the way. I have NOT read the thick instruction manual, nor do I intend to. My cameraman knows enough to be able to change frequencies when need be, so that's fine by me.

    So, in summary, this is an excellent microphone system. It works equally well indoors or out. The quality of the sound we've recorded with it is exceptional. Don't hesitate to make this your primary wireless microphone purchase....more info
