Wireless Headset stage microphone Review

I find boom microphones uncomfortable and physically restraining when singing. I mean, you're tethered two inches from the damn things, your head, and mouth, literally stuck to a wind sock. Not necessary!

Just got a Shure wireless headset and am I glad. It totally frees you up from worrying about distance from the mic, or even thinking about the darn mic. And when you're singing, the last thing you need to be is rooted in one spot for minutes or hours. I don't know why so many stage performers stick with boom mics...not me any more.

The Shure Performance Gear PG30 costs about $300, and that includes the headset, belt pack, and power pack, so it's really plug and play; I had it operating within five minutes and didn't even read the instructions...a man, you know.

It works flawlessly and the sound is as good as my Shure Beta 58 which is the performance workhorse of all time. I'm sure the PG30 can't be used as a hammer like the Beta 58, but I don't really want to drive nails with my mics, so not to worry about it being a little less durable.

Following is relevant info, but if you're tired of banging into mic stands and feel deprived that you can't move when you sing or deliver a talk, go wireless...you will not be sorry.

A comprehensive first step into professional wireless, the Shure PG14/PG30 Wireless Headset System is engineered to the same uncompromising quality standards as PGX, SLX, ULX and UHF-R wireless systems.

Labs Tech Tips
To protect your investment in that new DVD-/+RW, soak five or six cotton balls in alcohol (the higher the proof the better), place them in the tray and close it then hit the eject button to open it back up. Do this several times. Don't worry if you lose one of the cotton balls, just replace it with a freshly soaked one.
Over time, sound cards can get clogged up and start sounding muddy. It's a good idea to periodically go into the sound control panel and turn all the volume sliders to maximum. Don't forget turn the speaker volume to max, as well
