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:

            Got one on the Stupid Deal of the day, looking for cheap mic I can give to e.g. a child w/o being upset when they drop it in the water. The mic did not power on; fresh batteries but no light from the LED, and no signal out to the mixer. Musicians Friend was good about exchanging, but the replacement unit also did not function. More precisely, again no LED on the mic, but if I turned everything to the max and ate the mic, one could hear it. 3 inches from the mouth and it is inaudible. Since some people here are happy with it, I assume the manufacturer has quality control problems.

                my first remote mic....seems to be effective to get audience involved in your show because of mobility to move around and mingle with crowd.
                Seems to have quality sound and very low cost for the quality it brings to your performance....

                  This is a good enough microphone for use in venues where you need to have speakers who move about. It's just good enough for voice and pretty much nothing else. I'm not sure if singing or recording would be a choice, but for speaking it works just fine.

                      Bought to use as a vocal mic for simple gatherings. The SDOTD price was too good to pass up. It was DOA, however, but the problem was bad betteries from the manufacturer. Replaced those and it worked fine.

                      Performed quite acceptable for worship services. These are not made for a life on the road, and you know that when you buy. One could pick them apart, but why do that? You know they are not top of the line in the first place. For the money you are laying out you are getting more than you paid for. They give you acceptable sound. They are however very directional, and as long as you keep that in mind they will work for you.

                      My wedding/corporate band uses these for 2 things only: best man/maid of honor speeches/toasts and occasionally for the preacher to use during a wedding ceremony. For those 2 things, this system works well and is a bargain when they go on sale with free shipping at the Stupid Deal of the Day. I own 2. For speaking through a decent PA, these perform very well. I also have the comparable cheap Nady two-mic cordless system and the Gem Sound outperforms the Nady in terms of speaking vocal sound quality AND range. I've had good luck without these cutting out for a range of 50-75'. On the Nady, I can barely get 30' of range before they break up. These perform best when the transmitter is up high, like on top of a PA speaker. I also recommend buying some longer replacement patch cords (male xlr to 1/4 work well and are cheap on that one online auction site). Would I give it to my lead singer to use for vocals? No, the quality is simply not there in a live band situation, but maybe in a pinch if there was absolutely no other mic to use. But for what it is, used properly, it's a real bargain IMHO.
