I'm a professional musician and dj. This mic is perfect for karaoke.
I own 3 and so far didn't let me down. For the price this mic is great so you don't need to handle your expensive one to a customer. A lot of people are complaining to much for a cheap mic... what do you want??? High end??? Then don't be cheap and pay a lot more! Hello!
Believe me that gem sound did a great job for this inexpensive mic... it sounds good and the construction is simple a bit fragile but if you take care of it I'm sure will be fine. If you are picki or want pure pristine.sound, don't be cheap and go somewhere else. If you want something not professional but with a descent sound, this is it! Also keep in mind that the better your pa system the better the sound... I cant say how long they will last but during my last 30 shows they worked like a charm. Congrats gem sound for this little cheapie yet good mic. For the low price and capabilities according to price this mic deserves an honest 5 star. Hope my review helps. Good luck!

Although the mic appeared to work in a limited fashion when I tested it (poor range, poor sound quality, but at least it functioned), the first time someone picked it up to use it, it simply refused to work. It appeared to be getting the signal but the volume was almost zero. Yes they were fresh batteries. A bad unit? Perhaps. But it went back in the box and returned. I was not interested in trying again. Decided there is no such thing as a functional inexpensive wireless, so I bought a wired pic and deal with the restrictions of the wire. Don't have wads of cash to spend on the good stuff but can't see trying to operate with something that will let you down when you need it. Happy that Musician's Friend handled the return and refund without hassle. I'll continue to buy from Musicians Friend because I know if I do wind up with something that is less than top quality, I won't be stuck with it. Someone said any mic with "professional" in the name is to be avoided. Perhaps this is an indication that he's correct.

          Comments about Gem Sound Professional Handheld Wireless Microphone:

          The REAL Bottom Line is that it was dirt cheap on SDOTD and I bought one. I didn't expect much from it and it delivered exactly what I expected for a low, low end wireless microphone. I have used it once and it worked so-so, but do I feel I got my money's worth out of it, yes. It could have broke after the first time I used it and I would have been happy with the purchase, however the quality of the mic is horrible, and the orange tip on the end of the transmitter is just horrible. If you are needing a good wireless mic, don't look here. If you are needing a wireless mic for an emergency strictly for speaking and not for a performance, this is your guy.....but don't pay more than a President Jackson for it.

                  I have to addmit that when I ordered this I didn't really expect much for the price, but I only wanted it to hand out to people who wanted to try singing with us in the band and didn't have to worry much if they dropped it. When it came I had it hooked up to my sound board in a few minutes, made a couple adjustments in the tone and dang, it sounds as good as my Shure SM58. I just might use this more often then I thought. I don't think I'd want to treat it too rough but for the price you can't go wrong.

                  I get annoyed with people dropping and breaking or somehow doing damage to expensive mics at karaoke shows! I keep trying to find a durable, fairly good sounding mic that won't "hurt" so much when it gets destroyed - I ordered 3 of these and 1 was dead out of the box and was replaced - 1 of 3 was dropped (not thrown) and as of yet I can't get it going - They cut out but not always and I am working on why? - It appears people with certain cell phones affect the signal and the range is always suspect - I use cheap, alkaline batteries (takes 2 AA) and they last a long time, about 6 hours or more - Expensive (Duracell etc.) don't seem to make a difference - I will use them until I figure it out or if it gets worse but I probably won't buy any more

                  Even at the "Stupid Deal Of The Day" price, it is overpriced. It might be good as a child's toy, but it is not good for any serious sound applications.

                  The first one arrived with a defect and was replaced. So far this mic has performed as advertised. I've not used it at a gig, but will be shortly. It arrived in excellent condition. It came with everything that was expected. It is not a superior mic and we will be using it as a sing-along mic for the audience. My recommendation is to use it as a backup or as we are using it.
