This had no reviews when I bought it. I was scared. I had just returned a line 6 G30 that was cutting in and out on me every 10 seconds. I had a Sure set up back in 2000, but WiFi and a bajillion cell phones were not too prevalent back then. In my band's practice area, there are 2 WiFi routers and 4 cell phones. This BLX 14 has had 0 issues in a 3 hour practice this far under those circumstances whereas the Line 6 couldn't function. The Sure name is reliable, even under the weight of all the interference these days. So glad I got this instead!!! ... More

I bought the dual-channel BLX lavalier unit to connect to a sound system in a small church. It replaces an AudioTechnica one where the body pack was lost and the frequency band is no longer allocated to mics. These wireless lavaliers are a piece of cake to set up, sound magnificent, had no interference, and have enough range that you can be anywhere in the church and they are still picked up. It's an amazing kit for the price. The negatives are pretty simple: the clips for the mics are cheap and look like they probably won't last long. They are a little bulky too. The body packs are super light, but a bit bigger than usual. They use regular AA batteries rather than being rechargeable. The thing that gives these 4 stars instead of 5, however, is the thin and cheap plastic used for the body packs. They feel cheap, fragile, and prone to breaking. I hope nobody drops one of them. For literally a few pennies more, Shure could have made these a bit tougher, particularly the flimsy battery / gain control access door. Still, for the price, you're never going to get as good a product elsewhere. Not even close. ... More

Bought these for performanxes; was getting tired of cables everywhere. This unit is super easy to use, it scans for available frequency, and you select the transmitter channel to be the same channel as the receiver channel. The BEST thing about this unit is that it uses UHF frequencies below 2.4GHz. 2.4GHz units are very unreliable bc they work the same frequency as WiFi and Bluetooth, so it could cut out in rooms where lots of people are using their phones. You will not have that problem with this unit ever. Receiver is very light and compact, fits easily on my pedalboard. ... More

I have 3 of these; one each in the 3 different available frequency bands. Im using them in a very special legal setting and reliability and quality are tantamount. TWO channels in a small, light package! The receiver just reaches out and scans for a clear signal! EASY setting on the body pack! I have them stacked on top of a Sound Devices 6 channel mixer. There is not more than 20 feet from transmitter to receiver. I'm using my old SHURE 183's and 184's ( they plug right into the body pack ) but I didn't detect any problems with the included mics. Well, except that SHURE ships these with evil aligator type clips! SHURE sells the "kinder and gentler" clips separately. No telling how long the batteries last yet. So far the only "con" I've found to date: the power cords for the receiver fit loosely. There is even a strange plastic anchor that you loop the cord through before plugging it in. SHURE is sponsoring a rebate for replacing older 600MHz wireless units for a limited time!! ... More

Bought the Shure BLX14 after returning Line 6 and Boss 2.4 ghz systems due to drops probably caused by interference from Wifi networks. The form factor is not as convenient as the 2.4 ghz systems and I did prefer rechargeable batteries, but the Shure actually works. Have used it at home and playing an outdoor block party and the unit has performed flawlessly. No drops, no interference and no hiss. I don't notice any difference in tone compared to a high quality cable playing at home at low volume, but I can hear a difference when I crank up the volume, which is easy to compensate with eq. Strongly recommend a visit to the Shure website to figure out the right frequency for your area before you buy. ... More

I bought this to upgrade from an X-Vive system. That was a fun entry level wireless system, but too vulnerable to interference to be used in a performance situation. Unfortunately, I knew this Shure system was going back to GC when I was taking it out of the package and noticed the sending unit weighs about as much as a Nickle. It it one of the flimsiest, under-designed products I have ever seen. Drop this thing once on anything but 70's deep pile carpet, and its done. The receiving unit is three times the size it needs to be and also housed in thin plastic. A toddler would crush it. I set it up and tested it, and it worked flawlessly. Like so many manufacturers of refrigerators and dishwashers, they figured out the hard part brilliantly and paid no attention to durability, or how the thing would actually get used in the real world. This is some of the worst product design I've ever seen, and I won't be a part of it. A throwaway-quality product that will either have duct tape holding it together or be in a landfill within a year. ... More

There is plastic and then there is plastic. These units are made of ABS plastic like LEGO blocks. They are extremely durable. I had my first gig with it last Saturday, and of course the first thing I did was drop it about 3 feet onto the concrete floor of the brewery. The battery compartment popped open and one of the batteries came out. There wasn't a scratch on the transmitter. I replaced the battery, scanned for the clearest channel on the receiver, set the transmitter to match, and had clear, perfect sound for the whole 3 hour show. It sounds better than a cable, IMO. Zero latency. There is maybe a slight coloration and compression, but like Shure microphones, any coloration is in a good way that helps it pop in a mix. ... More

We got this for our church because our pastor like to walk across the stage while speaking and likes his hands to be free. It have great range he. Can walk all over the sanctuary and can be heard with no drop outs. First thing you want to do is scan for the best signal if you have other wireless devices(which we have at least 6 active at one time. Overall a very good product and it out preformed our other lapel mic.

We used this with a Marshall half stack, and then in stereo with a Fender Hot Red Deluxe. Great sound, could not tell it was not a cord, and walking up to 50 feet away, it had no sounds breaks. I'll think we will get another, and with 2 channel selection, there is no interference with each other.

These are being used for a small theater at a summer camp. These are being used with kids and they seem durable enough to be handled by kids. Sound quality was great and they are very easy to use.

We bought these to replace the old mic pack used by our senior pastor. We got two great sounding mics out of this purchase. Although we use different model headset mics rather than the lapels it comes with for the pastors, the lapels work just as well. We have used them for other guest speakers with no issues.

I just received this mic today for my fitness studio. One of my instructors attempted to use it and to say the sound quality was poor, would be an overstatement. This mic is horrible! The sound is muffled and you can barely understand what the person is saying. I will returning all four, tomorrow.

I am a physical education teacher. With classes of 20 or more elementary students, it was occasionally difficult to get everyone's attention if they were active and music was playing. That's no longer a problem with the Shure Wireless Headset System. Everyone can hear me from any area of the gym. Even when the music is playing. It is crystal clear and have not had any problems with the signal breaking up.

I bought this unit for my pastor to use during halftime of our youth basketball league. He was hesitant about the headset but got used to it very quickly. Set up and operation are very easy and I get no feedback what so ever. Great unit and great price! I would highly recommend this unit!

I had alot of issues using more than one of these side by side, close, far, or even separated they were cutting out in both suburban but especially closer to the city. They were dropping out left and right regardless of searching for open frequencies and that built in feature. I just could not figure it out. I have other BLX single units and they have been fine.

Easy to setup and use. Great for small venues. Use the Shure downloadable frequency software to evaluate your zipcode for compatibility for how many units in which groups can be used. This software will also give you the frequencies to tune the devices to.

We've only used the microphone one time so far and it worked great. There was no feedback noise at all, sound was really good! Set up was very easy and I don't know anything about microphone systems. We are extremely happy with our new lav mic so far! We work in a 3 story 130 year old brick building, where sometimes audio and wifi don't always work as it should. This microphone worked perfectly!
