OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
  • Wireless microphone system

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!

I've had to return 2 of these mics because if you have the mic turned off you get a nasty squeal from the receiver. Only way to stop that is to have mic on mute which of course isn't great for the battery. Also if you get out of range there will be bad pops and drop outs. I've seen others on review have same problem so buyer beware.

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

Handling the microphone was very noisy. No matter what I tried, too much noise came through the transmitter. A replacement was sent and it has the same problem. Otherwise, I thought it was a very good unit, but I couldn't have that much noise onstage

        This is good little microphone set up. It is good use for smaller setting, small churches, etc. If you are going to be outdoors or larger venues, it may not work for the distance you need. But for the price and overall use during small events, very good mic so far.

        I purchased the Ch. A model. Used for the officiant for an outdoor wedding ceremony utilizing one Bose L1 compact speaker. The sound clarity was excellent. No crackling or drop-outs. Also used indoor for speeches during the wedding reception without any problems. Distance of both setups were 50 - 85 feet w/o interference, noise, or RF problems.

        Got this mic for pastor at my church to use. Set-up very easy right out of box. Did not have to keep receiver a minimum distance from mic as prior review stated. Sound is a bit flat but any decent mixer EQ can brighten the sound. Only concern is battery life as mic uses one AA, but so far it's held up. Lack of channel choice may prohibit use in some applications. Overall a great deal for speaking or vocal part.

            Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

            Just received this microphone and I am very impressed with it so far. While the build quality is not great, since it's plastic, it is still weighted well and feels good in the hand.

            When first hooking it up I was worried because it sounded quite hollow and the mids were a tad overwhelming. That was hooked up straight to my speakers though. Once I patched it through my board I was amazed by the sound quality this little fellow provided with minor EQ adjustments.

            The on/mute/off switch works perfectly and doesn't make a lot of noise when being switched.

            The casing, being plastic, does cause a bit of noise if you are moving your hand over it. Once I use it in a live show I'll know better how much that will affect things. Until then I give this microphone a solid 5 stars.

            Well worth the money IMHO.

            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!

              Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

              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.
