"Excellent cost-effective in-ear monitoring solution, but BEWARE of useless mounting bracket"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Unless a new mounting bracket is forthcoming, I may return the lot.
Good sound, reasonable noise floor, good control of up to 3 sources. Very happy with the 351 modules, but don't know if I'll keep them because of the incredibly silly mounting brackets.
The stand clip is among the WORST accessories I have ever used. The mounting bend is too small to fit any standard mic stand (eg. K&M, Atlas) so you have to raise the stand to get a smaller diameter pipe for the clip to even go on. The thumb screw is a cheap piece of flattened steel (as opposed to a finished plastic knob that you would see on a K&M mic boom) and the screw is ~1/2 too long for its intended use. 1 of my 6 units failed to include the proper screws.
At $20 each for a stamped piece of steel I expected something similar to K&M mic stand quality and this is a poorly designed piece of kit that does not work for its intended purpose. A few small adjustments (fits a stand main tube, decent thumb screw of proper length) and it would be perfect, but someone in Rolls R&D really dropped the ball on this one.
Ease of Use
The module is simple to set up and use, and using a PM16 power module makes separate A/C power unnecessary. However, using splitters on the 16 is a bit silly. It would cost very little more to put 8 TRS outputs (instead of 4) and have a more reliable system.
Excellent module and inferior/expensive mounting bracket
Great value for the module, poor value for the bracket
Have sent a complaint e-mail about the brackets but have not heard back yet.
The Wow Factor
Great module, ridiculous bracket. Reasonably inexpensive way to go to in-ear system with 'More Of Me' capability
