Read the above. I believe you'll find wht you're looking for there.
I've had these mics for a year now, and I can't say anything bad about them. They aren't deserving of the accolades that pricey higher quality mics get, but, for the money, you really can't go wrong. I use them primarily for my karaoke shows, and I get hours of use before battery change, very long wireless range and consistent quality of sound. As for those who post that they feed back, I suggest you learn about EQ. Not knowing how to properly dial up sound seperates the men from the boys in this business. There's a balanced sweet spot you have to find with most wireless mics between the sensitivity/range settings on the reciever, your mic trim and your output volume. Once you find it, you're off and running! My mics are clear, loud and well sonically balanced, with nary a feedback issue. In larger venues, I do have to turn up the volume for good projection, and the light plastic bodies of these mics do give issue to thumping when handled roughly, like when someone claps during a performance while holding the mic. Not so a-typical. Happens with some dynamic mics too. But let's face it, if a customer destroys one of these babies, I can replace them for a laughably low cost, and I'm confident that the replacements will suffice as well as their predecessors. I use a higher end wireless for myself, and yes, there's a difference in the warmth and response, but I'm a professional singer, and it's my job to impress. I let really good singers use my mic on occasion, but there have been times when I had no battery for my Shure, and had to use the Nadys myself. I get no diminished crowd response as a result. Do yourself a favor, try them out. Stop using your volume slider to correct feedback issues, and learn about EQ, and you'll be very pleased with the results.
Durable, light weight and not battery burners. Good sound for many applications.
For what I use them for, there's no better deal out there.

I bought this as a backup wireless system for my church and some dj gigs that I do. I know it is very inexpensive and you usually get what you pay for but this was unusable even from the start. First of all, turning on the the wireless receiver without the mics on it creates a loud terrible buzz! Turning on a mic stops the buzz but then turning it back off brings it back! Also moving the mics create a scratchy noise. I've had experiences with cheaper wireless systems that at least worked for a few months before these things started happening but this one was bad from the start. I highly recommend spending a little more money and getting something more reliable if you are planning to use these in any sort of professional situation.

Comments about Nady DKW-Duo Dual Channel VHF Handheld Microphone System:

My group puts on seminars several months during the year. This year we have two classes utilizing two speakers. The first group of two speakers brought this setup and it worked beautifully so I bought my own set. I have tested it but have not used it for a class yet.

        Comments about Nady DKW-Duo Dual Channel VHF Handheld Microphone System:

        I have had this wireless system for over two years. I use the system when I DJ, when we want to sing along/karaoke at home or when ever else I need an amplified voice. I have used them to host golf tournaments, as mics for our neighborhood POA meetings and on the first day of school to welcome kids back from summer. Feed back resistance is pretty good and having two microphones is handy when high school kids want to sing along to their favorite song in front of the speakers at Homecoming! This is not a high do!!ar system but it does an awesome job and with care is nearly bullet proof. A corded microphone is about 20-30 feet long. These mics are awesome out to 40-50 feet. Summary...good system, 2 microphones, good feedback prevention, inexpensive, and I love them!!!!!

        It's an affordable good quality mics for the price ,but you have to take care of the battery cap because it is fragile be carefull to not drop it to the floor or use it in a rugged place,but if the cap get broken you can glued again with crazy glue and works perfectly again i haved it for about 6 years and use it in a worship house 3 times a week for about 3or 4 hours each day and works perfectly until now,i recomend to buy it if you are not an audiofile,for the price it is perfect.

          This is the second set of this model of Nady wireless mics I have purchased. I now have 4 mics available at my karaoke shows. They are reliable, and rather good for the price. While not professional quality, they do produce an accurate sound. I am quite pleased with them.

            Good value for the price. I run a karaoke show and these mics work quite well. Very good sound quality. I could even use them for our church's worship team. They are light-weight and I wouldn't get rough with them, but then I treat any mic as a delicate instrument. I'm considering buying a second set.

                The mikes worked great, and were easy to use right out of the box. They appear to be very fragile. They are so light that one drop could end in breaking them. I would have liked to have seen mike stand holders included with the mikes.

                      One microphone became all tinny sounding on the second gig. The second microphone started randomly cutting out about the same time.

                      Too bad since these sounded very nice while they worked. (All of about 4 hours).

                      I'll never understand why companies put out garbage like this when they know full well it's going to get returned in no time.

                      Sorry Nady. These may be cheap, but they are worthless. What's the point?
