I stopped by Sam Ash and picked ups Samson Airline Micro wireless microphone. I tried it out for a little while. Went as far as 30 feet without a hitch. Clear with no noise whatsoever. Awesome little piece of equipment from what I can see (or should I say "hear") so far.

Tomorrow will be the first time I will use it in actual performance (birthday party for 60-70 guests). I also purchased the extended warranty.

I recently compared the sound clarity of the Samson Airline Micro to that of the Samson Airline 77 and there is a big difference in clarity. The Samson Airline 77 is much more clearer and crisper. Also, there is no worries of broken signals in the Airline 77 as compared to the Micro Earset. So right now, the Airline Micro Earset will just be my back up.

Ahh well I have had mine since March 2011 and even have had added to a Samson thread .
Today the mic failed due to the jack on the receiver failing.
Prices for this seemed to increase since I got this so taking it apart I see the one solder joint is cracked. I had static when wiggling it then fist attempt at a fix - no sound/ Second attempt I had sound but then it started to crackle. I tried twice to get it to stick and having issues. It is board mount from what it looks like not pins. But not sure if something internal is going on.

So I am going over 4 years and I would say the batteries seem to be holding up fine. But then I do charge every couple shows as it is lithium and can take it.
I used to work with a guy that would change his only 9 V system with a fresh battery ever show rather than risk pushing a battery. Maybe that is where I got into the habit of charging the Samson after a week off or every other show rather than take a chance.

I would say I did not have the drop out issue until recently but only certain locations and usually it seemed to be more of a protection due to over loud noise in some cases. I am mostly in country areas so maybe have less issues. I also love the size and the fact that I can be A/C free. I don't have to worry about "plugging in"
If there is a small system like this that is as good, please pass it along since if fixing this jack becomes and issue I am not sure I going to put out for another one if I see something else to try.

I got the airline micro but am not impressed with the sound quality or clearness. After so many recommendations on the Café, I was expecting much better. It's a great backup, but nothing compared to my handheld.

As a general rule, you will give up some sound quality for the convenience of a head mic over a really good hand held.
