OVERVIEW

The Audio-Technica ATW-252 Freeway VHF Wireless Microphone System is designed to provide reliable performance, easy setup and clear, natural sound quality. The Freeway VHF Wireless System from the 200 series includes the ATW-R250 receiver, and the ATW-T202 handheld microphone/transmitter. A novel dipole antenna system on the receiver improves operation by providing a ground element in addition to the usual signal element.

ATW-R250 receiver

The ATW-R250 receiver includes a space-saving switching power supply that automatically adapts to changes in mains voltage. Unlike bulky linear power supplies, this switching power supply is lightweight and compact; it uses only a single outlet space.

The ATW-T202 handheld transmitter features a unidirectional dynamic microphone element. The ATW-202 handheld transmitter uses internal 9-volt battery and has an Off/Standby/On switch, input Trim (level) adjustment and battery-save switch.

Wireless on a budget.

I would highly recommend this product.
I have owned my Audio-Technica 252's for over 2 years. I use them every week for my karaoke shows. They have never failed me. Yes, you do have to change the batteries after about 12-15 hours of use, but who cares. The quality of vocals and sound from these mics stand far and above some of the much more expensive wireless systems that I've heard and used (Shure, Seinnheiser). For those that complain about cut-outs...it tells you on the box that it has a 30ft. range. I've used them from up to 50 ft. away with a full charge battery. People compliment the sound all of the time. FYI, I use a Numark FX Mixer, Behringer B215D Speakers and my Audio Technica mics, all of which I purchased from Musician's Friend. I highly recommend these mics!
Great quality, just don't let the drunks drop them on the floor.
Exceptional value!

I was looking for a mike with out drop outs. This one is not it. When the Audio-Technica ATW-252 Freeway VHF Handheld Wireless Systemfirst arrived I hooked it up and tested the reception up stairs down stairs even going outside at my house. It was great, no drop outs. I have used this brand in hard wired mikes and have always liked the sound. This mike has great sound. When I used the unit for the first time in a reception Hall it was to much for the transmitter to handle and the drop outs were many. With the mike set on high power or low power seems to make little difference. It does reject feed back well. I have used the mike in many venues and the results are same. Sounds good but drop outs way to much. Next time I'll go with a UHF system to give it a try.I expected more from the Audio-Technicabrand, for the price I should have known it would have a flaw.

    I use this system for the first time at an outdoor venue. I was very impressed with the sound quality and the ease of use. I bought this to use as a backup, but ended up using it as my primary microphone. I would definitely buy this microphone again

          This unit is better than the others I have looked at, including the Gemini, and a few others.

          It's not as expensive as the EV which cost a lot more, and I think these deliver pretty good performance - professional grade.

            I read the reviews for this system,and most of the reviews were good.So i said why not give this system a try.I must say it's a very good system for the price. We had no feed back no matter where we were.We didn't have to do any adjustments.The sound from this mike is very clear. We are very pleased with this system.

              These work great if you only buy one. If you buy more than one with the intention of using them together, they will pope, scream and make frequency noises. i bought three, tried to adjust multiple times, and they still popped.

                  I just bought 3 of these mics for my Praise and Worship team and we have used them once and I enjoy the sound from them, now if I can just get them in that sweet spot so there are no drops I think all will be well. Overall I like the sound and the response from the mic as well as the housing of the mic itself(makes it more rugged). I just have to have a couple of questions answered and I think I will be golden. I also own several Shure mics and a couple of Sennheiser mics and the AT mics sound just as good. Good job guys.

                  Sometimes cuts out for a second when switching channels but works well if you stay within its range. Sound quality is very good.
