"Overall, A Rock-Solid, Steady Performer. Audio Technica Pro8HeX."
Sound: I've owned the Audio Technica Pro8HeX for 5 years now. Is it gonna sound like an SM-57 or 58? No. But, if you are a singing drummer doing backups, this mic' is a good, solid, if unspectacular option. Feature: The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is a wired headset, and has a handy clip for making sure the wire doesn't get in the way. I use mine for backing vocals while drumming with my band, Scream, so I attach the clip to the pocket of my pants, running the wire down my back. There's nothing fancy needed with this mic', and that's what I like. Ease of Use: The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is a solid, steady mic. But like most other headsets, it's going to sound thin. Your soundman (or you) will need to tweak your channel settings on your board. If you have a deeper voice, like me, you'll need to cut some of the highs and boost the bottom end. It'll never sound like an SM-58, but for your dollars spent, the sound is decent, once you tweak it. Quality: The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is built like a tank. When I first purchased mine 5 years ago, I actually bought 2, one for a back-up, just in case. (I'm somewhat anal like that.) I have yet to break out the backup mic'. The original one has been in use 3 nights a week for five years with absolutley no failures whatsoever. Value: Great bang for the buck! Best value in headset microphones on the market today. Manufacturer Support: -Have not needed AT support- The Wow Factor: Doesn't look sexy, but it's light and comfortable on the head. Overall: I've owned the Audio Technica Pro8HeX for 5 years now. Is it gonna sound like an SM-57 or 58? No. But, if you are a singing drummer doing backups, this mic' is a good, solid, if unspectacular option. It never feeds back, it's rock-solid and tough as nails, and light. The sound is a bit thin, but your soundman can dial it in for you by cutting some highs and boosting the bottom end.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent alternative to wireless mikes."
Sound: I think the sound is pretty good. I read another review before purchasing the mike that panned the sound. There advantages to stand mikes but for what I needed this is pretty good. It tends to pop without the included wind shields. Feature: It's very light weight and I didn't need a long cord but that wouldn't be a problem if I needed one. I wish it had a switch. At the end of my concerts I move around and I have to take the thing off which so far has resulted in a loud thump and scratching sound. I have to grab for the mixer now. A switch would be nice. Ease of Use: works good for me. Quality: It seems to be a little light weight but that's also an advantage. I always have backups for almost everything. Right now that's a stand mike. I'm a sax player so the vocal stand mike gets in my way. I am always on the road traveling somewhere to gigs and I can't go back for something. Value: yes Manufacturer Support: no problems The Wow Factor: I don't wear it around my head because I often have a hat on so I put it around my neck outside my coller. It doesn't interfere with my sax neckstrap since it's lite weight too Overall: I was originally going to go wireless but since I am only a couple of feet from my mixer the cord length and all the extra junk I would have to carry for wireless makes wireless less than attractive although it has it's advantages too. I will order another one soon.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
