This wireless microphone is sold under various names; although the ones I own are not do not bare the same marque, they are identical in every other way - colours, size, shape. I bough mine from that cheap-tat auction site.
That said, please be aware that there are two different versions of this system which operate on different frequencies. The only way to tell them apart is from the colour of the LEDs on the transmitter and receiver - one version has green LEDs, the other red.
AVOID THE RED LED VARIETY!
The red version continually drops the signal, suffers from interference, and it totally unreliable. If you have this type, then negative reviews are justified. They are lousy.
However, the green LED version is superb for the price. I have extensively tested it, and it is consistently provides me with a robust and reliable signal. Even through several brick walls and across several storeys, the signal remained strong.
Build Quality - cheap plastic, and very light.
...about the size of a deck of cards, is held together with 4 plastic lugs and a single screw behind the belt clip (which can be removed). A 9V battery is required for the transmitter. I use rechargeables, and they last for ages. Of course, as they begin to drain, so the quality of the signal will suffer. The battery is a tight fit, and the cover can be difficult to slide on, but once on it stays in place... and is difficult to slide off again.
The transmitter is fitted with a volume control that allows you to set the volume of the mic. I found this to be quite useful.
It has a 3.5mm micrphone socket so you can plug in any microphone with a 3.5mm plug. I tested with my Rode NT3, and it worked a treat.
Wow! That's GREAT news for you! I know
How it can be when one is forced by circumstances to be out of contact with a close family member and what a joy it is to get re-connected again. I'm very happy for you...no one should have a son or daughter they cannot talk with and hold sometimes, it's just unnatural.
So, I wish you well and all the happiness there can be!

COCHIN, India Oct 22, 2005 â A few stars are still twinkling in the inky pre-dawn sky when Koyampurath Namitha arrives for work in a quiet suburb of this south Indian city. It's barely 4:30 a.m. when she grabs a cup of coffee and joins more than two dozen colleagues, each settling into a cubicle with a computer and earphones.
More than 7,000 miles away, in Glenview, Ill., outside Chicago, it's the evening of the previous day and 14-year-old Princeton John sits at his computer, barefoot and ready for his hourlong geometry lesson. The high school freshman puts on a headset with a microphone and clicks on computer software that will link him through the Internet to his tutor, Namitha, many time zones away.
