Amazing Value For Money

By FHI

from Mornington Peninsula

Verified Buyer

Comments about Vidpro XM-W4 Professional UHF Wireless Lapel Microphone System:

I use this for instructional video's and I highly recommend upgrading the microphone, The Sennheiser ME2 Omni Lavalier Microphone attached to this unit made the sound quality as good as the more expensive units. I have yet to have any interference with this unit and I have done approximately 100+ hours since I purchased this unit, The other amazing thing about this is the battery life, I easily get over 5 hours as a minimum per set and the additional line input in the transmitter comes in very handy along with the headphone jack in the receiver. I would defiantly purchase more of these units.

    • Q:

      Hi there, keen to purchase this system. We are using a Panasonic X1000 with XLR sound inputs, and we want to be able to give our presenter a lapel mic, and wirelessly connect that back to camera for audio recording. Will this package give us everything we need? It just seems like great value and I want to make sure there is nothing else we need.

        Hi Adam,

        It really gives you everything you would require. Only options to consider would be a healthy supply of AA batteries (or rechargeables) & a wind cover for the lapel microphone if you're planning on doing outdoor type work.

        Not entirely sure to be honest. Would recommend the Sennheiser ME2 or ME4 microphones. We know they work.

        Hi Julie,

        Do you mean so you can have 2 people speaking at the same time or a replacement microphone?

      Is this unit Stereo? Or is the lapel condenser?

        A:

        You mean the output from the receiver? Yes, it's a stereo output. The microphone, of course, is mono. It's a condenser microphone but not a particularly great sounding one. I'd recommend the Sennheiser ME2 or ME4 as an upgrade to it personally.

      Hi ,

      Hi, do you think this would work effectively with a Sony FS100 through the XLR connection?

    • Q:

      Do you think this would work with a irig pre and a rode NT1A?
      Asked on 27/2/2016 by Andrew from Upper Ferntree Gully

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        No, that will not work. The irig is for smart phones firstly, plus the input on the transmitter is made for lavalier microphone, and needs to be a screw in type 3.5m.
        There is no cheaper method to transmitter the nt1a, with using the more expensive 2000 series sennheiser system.

      hi guys - Comparison to Sennheiser? any good? Best DJB

        A:

        This is one you cant compare. the sennhesier is at a different price point, many more features.. You should be looking at more the Rode Filmmaler kit to the Vidpro. The Vidpro has features like Headphone output that the other dont have. the only thing i would upgrade in this kit would be the lapel microphone, ie i would update that to a sennheiser ME2 or ME4 lapel or Rode Lavealiere and then you got a great peice of kit.
