Definitely not Shures, but good mics for the money.Dec 22, 2008
By G. Pius
I'm a part-time Karaoke host at a couple local bars in my town. A contemporary of mine put together the Mother-of-all-Karaoke Rigs: 12-channel mixing board, Electro-Voice speakers, preamps, compressors, sonic maximizers, Shure x-series wireless mics, intelligent EQs--and everything he bought was from professional music supply houses and brand-new.
I'm exactly the opposite; this isn't my career--it's just a fun hobby. I have a Mackie 808S 8 Channel Powered Mixer driving two JBL loudspeakers and a floor monitor. Period. My rig sounds pretty decent, and I didn't break the bank assembling it. After all, it's not like Britney Spears or Eminem are performing at my shows. However, I liked my buddy's wireless mics, so when I off-handedly asked him what the four of them set him back, I nearly passed out when he said "Oh yeah! I got 'em on sale! Only $659 apiece!"
After a gagging spit-take, I said "Looks like I'll be sticking with my Seindheisser corded mics for a while."
That was until I found this Pyle setup on Amazon here.
Okay, they're not Shures. That much is certain. But for the money, they're really decent little mics. They feel lightweight and plasticky, but have a semi-rubberized coating on them much like my ThinkPad does. The power switches are recessed and fairly rugged, and the battery compartment cover screws onto the bottom of the mics snugly and with authority.
On the back are two balanced XLR outputs--one for each mic--and a single unbalanced 1/4" mixed output. You could use this set on a professional rig, like I do with XLR cables, or connect it to your home stereo with the 1/4".
And the sound? It sounds very decent. The radios work well, with no interference at all. However, the unit puts out an inordinate lot of highs, so to stave off feedback I have to pot down the high EQ on the channels it's connected to. But they still sound good nonetheless. Besides, unlike my buddy, who will doubtless get a peptic ulcer worrying about his wicked-expensive mics in the hands of inebriated revelers, because of the low price, I worry significantly less about Drunkie McDrunkelstein dropping it--I could replace the whole set with less than half the proceeds from a single gig, if necessary.
All-in-all, these mics are a good value for the money. I've been very happy with them.

Not as described, but I'll give it a chance...Apr 28, 2011
By Michael S. Smith
I have not been able to use this item yet, I have just received the item from UPS. However, I did want to warn people of some glaring discrepancies in the product description. I have submitted a change request to Amazon, but thought I would write this review so you can make an informed decision until Amazon updates their information.
The features and description list Individual XLR Outputs. Not true! The system has a single XLR output, as well as a single 1/4" output. Both are mixed, not individual. So don't think you can plug each microphone to it's own slider on the mixing board.
The page also listed UHF frequency range between 710-850 MHz. The unit I received is clearly listed on the box and the unit as 643 to 650 MHz. Luckily the other wireless system I have operates in different range, so I should be OK.
I felt these discrepancies were important enough to warn future buyers that the page data is wrong. If you absolutely need individual outputs or operating frequencies other than what is listed in this review, be aware that this product may not suit your needs.
Since I haven't had a chance to use this system yet, I can't speak to the quality and clarity of sound or range.

JUNK JUNK JUNKSep 12, 2009
By Christopher J. Scanlan
"Seger forever fan"
At first I would have recommended this wireless mike system to anyone. I went 50-60 feet away from the box and even got out of the line of sight of it and still had great sound quality. If used for a meeting hall though I would make sure all cell phones are turned off or you do get a little sound interference. I used to be told we can't hear you now I hear turn it down you're too loud. I use these mics for about 2 hours once a month. The mics are now about 5 months old they have never been dropped or mishandled and now 1 of the mics has started acting like it is overheating and shuts off while in use or half the box is acting up. Turn off the switch then turn it back on it works a couple minites then acts up again. It actually shows a signal like being used when not. The other one still works fine though. I guess what do you expect for $100 wireless mics.Now a little over a year old, one mike quit last week and the other one quit last night. This set is the biggest piece of junk you could own. Spend a little extra money and buy a better set. With just over a year old and no abuse and both mikes have quit I wouldn't reccommend to anyone. It still is $100.00 I'm out and have to find a better set on a tight budget. When I complained about the first problem I was told send it back (even though they were still under warranty) I would have to pay postage and insurance back and send Pyle $15.00. A one year warranty should cover everything for the warranty period!!! No cost to the consumer.

Great sound and distance!!Nov 14, 2007
By E. Mesihovic
Excellent wireless mics I bought for my daughter. The sound quality is very good and range was better than expected. Anywhere in the house ranging in 70 feet and on different floor s you could here me clearly. I would not have bought them if not for the previous review. Be careful if you drop mic, might loosen contact inside mouth piece. Its very easy to fix with soldiering iron or just electric tape. If not for the previous review I would not have bought it. Keep the reviews coming in!!!!!!
