Samson Airline 88 Wireless Headset Microphone System

Ideal for fitness instructors, this water-resistant wireless headset mic has no bodypack or cables! The rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 8 hours.

Looking to cut the cord? Samson's AirLine 88 wireless system gives you the freedom to move with no restrictions. The True Diversity receiver and moisture-resistant wireless headset offer cable-free transmission of singing or speech with no compromise in sound quality.

CR88 Receiver

At the heart of the system, the CR88 receiver operates in the UHF spectrum for interference-free use. Where VHF systems are more susceptible to bleed-over from local radio frequencies, the CR88 stays locked onto the transmitter for crystal-clear sound. Samson brings UHF technology to the working musician at a price to fit any touring budget.

True Diversity Operation

To prevent dropouts, Samson uses True Diversity technology for the CR88 receiver. There are two independent receivers within the unit, each with its own antenna. Both receivers track the transmitter, and the system constantly checks to see which one has the strongest signal. If a dropout is encountered, the CR88 switches to the other antenna, so the performance remains uninterrupted. Choppy audio is distracting to the audience, and will pull their attention away from your message. With the AirLine 88 system, you can communicate with no obstructions.

Rear-Panel Connectivity

Rear-panel connections allow for easy integration into any sound system. The unbalanced, high-impedance 1/4-inch jack is well-suited to consumer-grade electronics such as boom-boxes and karaoke machines. For pro-quality mixers and read more PA systems, the balanced, low-impedance XLR output is the best choice. Regardless of your amplification needs, the AirLine 88 adds flawless wireless performance.

Rackmountable Organization

The CR88 receiver's compact, half-rackspace housing is unobtrusive and easily moved to accommodate any sound-reinforcement layout. You can also secure it in a rack with Samson's included mounting kit. When multiple wireless systems are used together, it can be a challenge to remember which receiver is associated with a particular transmitter. If you change a setting on the wrong receiver, not only have you not fixed the original problem, you probably caused a new one. With the rackmount kit, you can keep your wireless gear organized and make instant adjustments to the correct receiver.

Cable-Free Micro-Transmitter

The receiver is rock-solid, but that's only half the story -- the AlrLine 88's bodypack-free micro-transmitter really stands out. This technology eliminates the need for a wired bodypack. Many other wireless transmitters use a thin cable between the microphone and the transmitter. While no physical connection exists between the transmitter and receiver, there's still a cable in the system. If the bodypack cable isn't long enough, it can pull the microphone away from your mouth and reduce audio quality.

The AirLine 88 system's AH8 transmitter has no cables at all. It is small enough to mount inside the headset for total comfort and freedom of movement. Your headset mic will never be yanked out of position, and its efficient lithium-ion battery will broadcast your message for up to 8 hours.

AirLine Headset and AE50X Microphone

The AH8 system headset includes the Qe AE50X micro-miniature microphone capsule with cardioid pickup pattern. Unlike most "top-worn" headset devices, the AirLine goes behind the head and over the ears. The micro-transmitter sits out-of-sight on the rear-band, delivering your words with no distractions. The frame is completely adjustable to sit firmly in place, regardless of your activity level -- the perfect solution for aerobics instructors. Bend and twist, shout encouragement, and your students will stay motivated. The mic capsule is made of corrosion-resistant, waterproof material to provide reliable performance in humid health-club environments. It also works well in less-harsh conditions for lecturers, singers, and other vocal broadcasting use. USB-style charger included.

Overall: 1 out of 5 stars
I really wish you guys had never switched wireless mics from Samson...this one is horrible. It is extremely floppy and the fitting is terrible. I refrained from leaving a review once I first received the product and although it is now even just about a year later, I have had the worst time with this mic since I received it. Very disappointed.
