Brilliant sound and ease-of-use at an unbeatable price/performance ratio.

The WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System features AKG’s unique HDAP (High Definition Audio Performance) technology ensures the best possible, most realistic sound at any time. The system includes an SR 40 MINI receiver, a HT 40 MINI handheld transmitter, a universal power supply with US/UK/EU adapter, and one AA size dry battery.

The SR 40 Mini receiver provides three status LEDs indicating ON/OFF status, received signal strength (RF OK), and audio clipping (AF CLIP). The VOLUME control sets the level at the ¼" output jack. The supplied switched mode power supply operates on any AC voltage from 110 to 240 VAC and includes EU, UK, and US adapters.

The rugged HT 40 Mini handheld transmitter features an ON/OFF/MUTE switch and a sturdy wire-mesh cap protecting the cardioid dynamic microphone element. Battery life of the transmitter is the same legendary "30 hours off a single AA battery" as for the WMS 40 models, reducing the need to replace batteries and thus saving real money in the long run.

    I purchased this mic for my singer (I'm the guitar player). He has never used anything other than an SM-58. I could not tell a difference in the dynamics between this mic and the SM-58. The mic is sensitive and has plenty of gain with no distortions in the signal whatsover. I'll admit, I was a little skeptical when I purchased this mic because of the price. However, the other reviews were positive so I didn't figure it would be a huge mistake given the cost. I soundchecked the mic before our singer got there and I was totally impressed with sound. We had absolutely NO issues with interference and the sound remained solid and noise free up to 100 feet from the receiver. We play mostly mid-sized clubs and this mic is more than enough for that. Bottom line.....A fantastic sounding, quality microphone with a minimal price tag! I would definitely recommed this mic.........
    This mic only offers one frequency, however, that shouldn't be an issue if you using it in an area that doesn't have a lot of wireless RF usage. It might be an issue in a metropolitan area where several devices may be using that frequency. The 30 hour battery life for one "AA" battery is fantastic! A lot of wireless devices use 9V batteries. They don't last very long and are very expensive, so that feature is definately a plus.
    The mic is solidly built from a hard plastic and has a metal windscreen. The mic itself is not very heavy. I'm going to assume that it wouldn't withstand throwing it against a brick wall time and time again, but I don't figure that the $400 mics would withstand that either. The receiver is solidly built and compact (a plus).
    For the money, I don't think that this microphone can be beat!

    Since the pick up capsule is poorly insulated from the body of the mic, there will be a lot of noise pick up by the mic's capsule, thus the sound will be amplified to the pa sound system. The on and off switch does rattle and the mic also picks up on that too.
    The ultra high frequency does help with interference from other transmitted sources.

    Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

    This mike worked fantastic! Crystal clear, long distance with no drop or cut outs, ease of use that you could hand it to unskilled hands and get great results. Plug and play and a single AA battery - no special 4 pack or rechargeable pack needed. I was DJ to a very famous personality and a lot was on the line. They requested a wireless and I knew it would have to be dependable and have great sound. Musician's Friend recommended this model and I knew from my recording background AKG were proline. The base unit registers if it is getting signal from the microphone which is helpful and gives comfort that everything is working. The microphone also has a mute switch worth its weight in gold. Really great mike and system. Saved the day!

            Stands up very well with wireless mics costing 4 times as much. bought this to replace a Shure PG24/PG58 system ($299) and was not disappointed. I did not "A/B" the two systems but the sound was clear, uninterrupted, and had a range of >100'.

            Great mic for the money!

            By Gene Francis

            from NC Baby!

            Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

            Our church was using really bad mipro's. We had not budget but needed a wireless for announcements, etc.

            Our range is about 50-60 ft. and so far this mic has been incredible. Crystal clear vocals, no feedback issues, has yet to drop out or get staticy. Used once in a pinch for BGV's and sounded fine. I would definitely get this if you are in a crunch. Perfect for smaller venues or a youth space, or for bar bands playing small gigs...
            Too few to be disappointed in. Wish it had XLR and at least rack mounts option...
            Everything that could/should be metal is plastic...
