I purchased this microphone for my wife who sings and plays keyboards for our band. I actually did not expect too much from this product as my opinion regarding any of the headset-type mics is that most of them are not very good. My experience with most of these mics is that they have are very low gain and very tinny sounding. This mic fits the mold; however, I found that it had more gain than many that I have tried. The sound? yes, they are haavy on the high-end; however, a good mixer board will cure that problem. We actually tuned this one to the point where it had too much low-end. Overall, it performed very well once we got it tuned into our system and I can actually say that we will continue to use it as a permanent part of our PA system. We perform in a variety rock band, so it was tested pretty well at our last gig. My wife's only advice about using it...it IS pretty sensitive, so remember to move it away from your face when you're not actively singing....

This might be decent for a preacher or an auctioneer, but if you play, and sing, on stage, don't buy this one.
No features to speak of.The boom won't stay in place uless I crank the screw down. It doesn't adjust easily when I want to go from harmony to lead.

Either I got a dud, or people who reviewed them have never had a decent headset mic before.
I have a higher end board and have to crank both the bottom end, as well as the compression, to get a decent sound out of it. It isn't even close to the quality I had with my old AKG c410. (I can't get parts for it anymore so...)
Save your money, buy a condenser headset.

Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 8HEX Headset Mic:

I love not having to use a bulky mic/stand and can use this without having anything to obstruct my music. I love the flexibility of being able to look around at the audience while playing my guitar, without worry that I am out of range of my mic. Sound is good, when the mic is in the right place. I need to get some kind of a clip so the wire doesn't get pulled. Wire seems to be very delicate as is the entire head set. We'll about the test of time.

    Great price, reliable, fits well on your head. Seems a little weak on the bottom end. The ability to flip it up when not in use is handy.

      I use this with a little portable amp. It's great for that. When plugged into a soundboard it sounds a little thin.

          I am a rock drummer and this headset works great for the price. I have a couple of them and they have been solid mics.

                I've owned two of these- the original still works, but looked worn, so I replaced it. I've tried headphone mics (and bought) more expensive, but keep coming back to the PRO 8HEx. I get compliments on clarity of vocals every gig. Very easy to keep in position, no feedback problems, even working within 5' of speakers. Before spending more money, try this great headset mic.
