Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Bang for the Buck "
Overall: I bought this unit to use on wedding ceremony gigs. Primarily for the judge/officiant, but also the groom if requested. I currently own several wireless handheld units in the SLX series. in comparison, I really wasn't sure what to expect performance wise as I assumed these are a step down in quality from my SLX units. From the very first time I used the BLX unit, any doubts i had we're put to rest. These units work Great! The range is excellent and the audio is very clear. The CVL mic is just a $40 mic, but it gets the job done! I have a DBX 31 band on the mixer output to ring out a few undesired frequencies. For speech use, some EQ tweaking is a common thing. I would highly recommend changing the channels from the stock A1 and A2 setting. For whatever reason, Doing this gives you a higher & hotter gain signal. Other than that..... These units work really well. I'm very pleased with the purchase, And I now have faith in Shure's lesser expensive products. i have purchased several pieces of gear from zzounds and their support and service is excellent! -Steve

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good for the money"
Overall: I really like this set as far as the receiver goes - nice to have a dual set up in one box. The transmitters are cheap, but effective and easy to set up with the receiver. No mute function, but hey it's INEXPENSIVE. The only thing I don't like - and this has nothing to do with quality is that I WANTED two of the headset mics instead of two lavaliers... had to buy separate. oh well

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.

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.
