Hi Gang,

Curious what you think of the included head-set itself. I know the other portions of it are strongly reviewed elsewhere here.

Thanks for reading,

We could have been practicing!

I bought one a couple of months ago. I like it for the most part. I also have a Sennheiser wireless headset so I'll compare the two. I am using the Shure most of the time now because I think it does better with my voice. The Sennheiser tends to be a little heavy on the bass. (It's the proximity effect. That's where the closer a mic is to your mouth, the more prominent the bass is. Ironically, that's what I like about Sennheiser handheld mics - they don't exhibit much of a proximity effect.)

I don't have any problems with the proximity effect with the Shure WH20. I do find it's more prone to feedback than my Sennheiser but that's because it projects more mid-range and that's where I always get feedback. It's not bad but I have to be more aware of the speaker location when I'm walking. (Because the Sennheiser doesn't project as much mid-range and is heavier on the bass, I rarely get feedback even when walking in front of the speaker.)

The only complaint I have with the Shure mic is that the it tends to move more than my Sennheiser. The flexible wire that allows you to adjust the mic placement is a little too flexible on my mic. I find myself adjusting the mic from time to time during my performances because it has moved. This may not be the case on all of them.

I hope this helps.

I bought one over a year ago and I like it also. It is fine for speech. I am also a singer/songwriter and I hoping to upgrade to an AKG mic later on for vocals. Even if I do, I will still use the Shure for magic shows. It does a fine job.
